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 […]

If you would like a more in-depth review of what the path forward with 800G pluggable optics may look like may we suggest watching Preparing the Way for 800G: 100G Electrical and 800G Pluggable Optics. —————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————– The creation of the 800G ecosystem has begun. Alpha samples of 800G OSFP modules have been demonstrated and we […]

C-band and the role it plays in 5G Midband (or C-band) is considered the “waterfront property” of RF spectrum for 5G. It offers the best compromise between RF coverage and RF bandwidth. Per ITU’s minimum technical requirements to meet the IMT-2020 criteria for eMBB, at least 100 MHz of bandwidth will be required. For a […]

  Virtual environments have been critical for many of us over the past year. The office as a physical space – not just for employees but a place to host servers and hardware – is diminishing in importance. Employees have been able to access applications and collaborative working tools wherever they’ve been working, reducing our […]

Telecommunication networks play an integral part in facilitating the operations of a wider global market. As such, they are expected to handle large loads of bandwidth at a rapid pace, while maintaining data integrity. Ensuring that the software provided by telecoms companies works flawlessly is of paramount importance. One way to do so is by […]
