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 […]

Timing and synchronization is everything in 5G For a mobile network operator, timing is everything. Not just determining when to upgrade the network to bring new services to market, but in the literal sense as well. If the radio clock loses synchronization accuracy in a radio access network (RAN), or the radios are out of […]

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 […]

The fifth-generation global wireless technology promises to deliver data rates at faster speed, low latency, and the ability to power brand-new experiences in 2021. With its superior network performance, the arrival of 5G promises to transform our daily lives. Because of this, 5G is expected to drive most of the anticipation and activity in the […]
