As wireless technology evolves to 4G, LTE and beyond, we are seeing the demand for mobile data follow suit. With the exponential rise in traffic, it is essential that mobile operators continuously optimize their legacy and next-generation networks in order to ensure the consistent delivery of a high end-user quality of experience (QoE). At the […]
The Carrier Ethernet market is a proven revenue-driver for communications service providers (CSPs), and by all accounts, it will continue to be so in the coming years. By 2017, the Carrier Ethernet market is expected to be worth $100 billion, and by one year later, revenue from these services is predicted to be 300 percent […]
Increasing the speed of service activation, alongside optimizing network services pricing is still causing headaches for communications service providers (CSPs). Incremental network technology improvements and other tactics haven’t quite been able to cut it, and CSPs are looking toward new technologies such as network functions virtualization (NFV) and software defined networking (SDN) to bridge the […]
In the last four years alone, more than 1 billion people have gained mobile network access, bringing the global total to 3.2 billion mobile subscribers – nearly half the world’s population. And we’re only about another four years away from crossing the next significant milestone – 4 billion global subscribers. Historically, this rapidly growing landscape […]
Today’s mobile networks are increasingly dense, complex and heterogeneous, thanks in large part to the trend toward virtualization. In addition, operators must consider the burden of ongoing, exponential mobile data traffic growth on their networks.
Today’s mobile operators have a lot on their plates. They must manage increasing mobile data volumes and deliver a high quality of experience (QoE), all while keeping CAPEX and OPEX in check. Without a clear view of the end-to-end network, each of these individual tasks are difficult to achieve – let alone all at once! […]
