RAN Intelligent Controller

RAN Intelligent Controller At the O-RAN Alliance Plugfest at the end of last year, VIAVI, alongside partners AT&T, Samsung and Nokia, demonstrated an end-to-end traffic steering use case based on a number of open source components. One of these was the near real-time RAN Intelligent Controller platform, or RIC. Central to the demo was VIAVI’s […]

Understanding RAN  The RAN (Radio Access Network) architecture for mobile networks includes a remote radio unit (RRU) located at the top of a cell tower, which communicates with a baseband unit (BBU) at the base of the tower. The hardware and communication interfaces are owned by a specific vendor, and its software-driven functionality is tightly […]

Benchmarking O-RAN

Benchmarking O-RAN performance O-RAN was big news last year, and a recent announcement from the O-RAN Alliance – one of the main bodies encouraging open RAN innovation, highlights the importance of benchmarking and testing in helping operators and others develop and get value from Open RAN deployments. Recently, the O-RAN Alliance launched a Minimal Viable […]

Network capacity planning is an ongoing process that involves continually assessing network utilization, traffic volumes, and traffic type to identify shortcomings like performance chokepoints that can affect the end-user’s experience. Without investing in capacity planning measures, organizations risk decreased employee productivity from degraded network performance, Service-Level Agreements not being met, and ultimately a poor experience […]

Advanced Upstream Blog Series Introduction In the Advanced Upstream blog series we will explore how cable operators have traditionally managed upstream bandwidth capacity planning, how market dynamics and technical innovation are driving changes, and where things are likely headed in the coming years.  In this entry we will lay the groundwork for discussion of the […]

Fiber optic cables are becoming more and more important in our daily lives. They are used to transmit large amounts of information in a short period, and we strongly rely on them to maintain a reliable network connection. However, many things could potentially slow down the transmission of data, such as contaminated connectors and congested […]
