400 gigabit ethernet is quite self-explanatory in the fact that it is an ethernet connection which operates four times faster than 100G. The name ‘400GbE’ stands for the next capacity rate in Ethernet interfaces. 400 GbE is advancing the optical network landscape, pushing network providers to adopt the new addition in order to stay ahead. […]

Submarine cabling is not a new concept, in fact, it was first implemented in 1858, connecting Newfoundland and Ireland through a telegraph cable that was placed deep beneath the sea’s surface. Whilst this was revolutionary at the time, the first non-test message that was sent was a 509-letter message that took 17 hours and 40 […]

China has commenced an extensive digital and infrastructure plan to make the nation future-ready. The country’s expansive Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) has included projects such as Myanmar’s Kyaukpyu port, the high-speed railway system in northern Laos, and rail and pipeline installation across Malaysia. Additionally, China has invested billions of dollars into similar projects in […]

Network convergence might sound like an enigmatic concept when, in fact, it’s simply the aggregation of all electronic mediums of communication onto one ubiquitous 5G network. In essence, it merges mobile, video transmission, data communication services into a coexisting network. The need for increased bandwidth in an always-online society is the motivation that has given […]

Tag – You’re It!  Signal Tags and Their Use in Cable Signal Leakage Detection Cable signal leakage technologies have been around for more than three decades, and while the underlying concept of detecting CATV signals leaking out of the network has not changed, the technologies to accomplish this have changed considerably.  Shortly after the first […]

With the arrival of 5G already occurring in select countries and the anticipated launch expected to happen in most within 2020, the need for telecom engineers to be skilled and trained within all aspects of 5G is evident. In order to achieve set targets and for the roll-out of 5G to be deemed successful, telecom […]

Why Signal Leakage, Why Now? Ingress has been the single largest thorn in the side of cable operators since the advent of CATV plants, only to be aggravated by the introduction of two-way services.  Despite decades of innovation, the silver bullet solution to fully address this problem remains elusive. Why Ingress Is Such a Challenge: […]
