Simplify FTTH/PON Testing with “Smart” Fiber Features The rise in fiber adoption by service providers is fueling the demand for workers who can skillfully build and certify fiber plants, especially for deployment of Fiber to the Home (FTTH). This means that installers and contractors, who are traditionally trained in copper or coax network installation, must […]

 This is a re-post of an article in Gazettabyte, © Roy Rubenstein 2017 The race is on to deliver 400-gigabit optical interfaces in time for the next-generation of data centre switches expected in late 2018. The industry largely agrees that a four-wavelength 400-gigabit optical interface is most desirable yet alternative designs are also being developed. Optical […]

Rolling out DOCSIS 3.1 alone will not be enough to meet long-term subscriber bandwidth demands, which is why many operators are linking their DOCSIS 3.1 rollout with the migration to distributed access architectures (DAA) like Remote PHY. To learn more about how VIAVI can help simplify your transition to Remote PHY, download our new solution […]

In 2007, the iPhone revolution threw mobile operators off guard. They simply weren’t prepared for the huge increase in mobile data usage the devices stimulated. The iPhone set the foundation for smartphones to become the consumer’s gateway to the internet, superseding both laptops and desktop PCs. Operators took years to develop the network infrastructure that […]

Everyone’s talking about 5G. Industries as diverse as healthcare, agriculture, automotive, broadcast, utilities and public safety – to name but a few – have all been strategizing how they can use the new connectivity standard to drive efficiencies, improve business and enhance the end-user experience. There is a need to define and trial use cases […]

With 5G becoming ever-closer to reality, operators are now looking to deploy validation equipment to develop their networks in preparation for 5G. Back in February we unveiled the industry first software-defined 5G UE simulator that reaches 10 Gbps. Demoed for the first time at MWC, this solution is based on Verizon’s open 5G standard and enables the […]

Network functions virtualisation (NFV); a concept which would have sounded unachievably futuristic a decade ago, is now very real and very exciting, yet there is slight apprehension for some. It is much like the intriguing, but tentative reception to autonomous vehicles; you know the technology is there, and you sense that it is safe, but […]
