With the rollout of 5G, synchronization in carrier networks is becoming even more critical. Mobile cellular networks need to be synchronized to avoid base stations with shared coverage interfering and disrupting each other, leading to declining network quality for customers. Throughout the Third Generation (3G) cellular communications, the NodeBs relied on satellite communications for synchronization, […]

As high-bandwidth requirements continue to rise over the last few years, multiple system operators (MSOs) transform their hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) networks. Available architectures, such as DOCSIS 3.1 and Remote PHY, rely on fiber-based bandwidth deep into the cable television (CATV) network, which is why countless operators aim to create Node+0 architectures via “fiber deep” initiatives.  […]

There has been no doubt that fiber networks ensure the viability of smart-device applications, video streaming, and business requirements. However, with a demand increase, it only makes sense for service providers to continue striving for improvements in broadband access networks, which will require several tests on different network parameters, namely insertion loss, distance, and optical […]

At the moment, China currently sits at the top of the world standings when it comes to the number of 5G towers successfully installed. However, even with 600,000 5G towers and base stations installed throughout the country, it has only touched the surface of complete 5G penetration, as the country will need up to 10 […]

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 discuss the “more Nodes” approach – how […]

In an increasingly digital world where every pillar of information is now online, lightning-fast connectivity, rock-solid reliability, and impenetrable security are transforming into essentials within the network industry. 5G transforms the connected ecosystem and pushes the boundaries of connectivity to lay the foundation of a faster, more secure, and sustainable future.    For years, if […]
