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 […]

After careful consideration, VIAVI has chosen to cancel plans to participate in this year’s MWC Barcelona event based on our assessment of the expected state of the Covid-19 pandemic across Europe this summer. While we do appreciate the precautionary measures put into place by the GSMA, our utmost priority is to protect the health and well-being […]

Turbulent – the word most people use to describe the last 12 months. The nicely protected corporate networks have been turned inside-out by the effects of the global pandemic. Unplanned, universal remote working has put every employee outside of the trusted network perimeter, including the IT team, creating a host of new challenges – and […]
