Security in Open RAN
Discover how telecom service providers can adopt an Open RAN architecture without compromising on security. This whitepaper demonstrates how, by adopting a zero-trust security framework, an Open RAN architecture provides a path to a more secure open networks and open interfaces over what exists today. Despite misconceptions, open interfaces, defined in the O-RAN technical specifications, provide increased independent visibility and the opportunity for an overall enhanced and more secure system.
COVID-19 Market Impact: Digital Consumer Services
The Coronavirus pandemic highlights more than ever the importance of having a reliable, high-speed and high-quality broadband service to our homes. With many countries experience a lock-down of some kind, everything from shopping, to education, work, communication, entertainment, and even health, has had to be done from home and broadband has powered it all.
The service broadband operators deliver have always been important, but perhaps never as important as they are now. Now is the time for broadband service providers to prove their critical value propositions to their customers, and ensure they are seen as the crucial providers of the best quality of experience in the connected home.

The ICPs: Bullying CSPs for Dark Fibre
For the most part, Internet Content Providers (ICPs) can build global systems to connect their ever-growing network of data centers without issue.
However, in the very high bandwidth data centre interconnect portion of the market, ICPs are pushing Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to construct dark fibre-based networks when dark fibre is available. The result? Increasing pressures for CSPs to sell ICPs dark fibre, the 'crown jewels' of their networks, or face a difficult ultimatum.

The Evolution Towards Open Cables
There are over 400 submarine communication cables deployed under the seas and oceans of the world today. With a typical cable having an engineering design life of at least 25 years, it’s not surprising that a given cable will have the opportunity to use several generations of transponder technology over its lifetime.
Or will it?
Building a solid foundation for open optical networking
Disaggregation and open optical networking (including 400ZR) are the hottest optical topics of 2021, but these major trends did not emerge overnight.
What the Global Pandemic has Taught us About Communications Infrastructure
Before the global pandemic that has upended our lives in multiple ways, Verizon’s daily message traffic would peak at around nine billion text messages on New Year’s Eve, traditionally its busiest day of the year. Now, nine billion messages every day has become the operator’s new-normal.
Covid-19 is rewriting the record books.

Convergence, Density and the Search for Capacity - Interview
Catch our interview with Roshene McCool, Market and Technology Development Manager at Corning.
"So, I think the 3 key trends I've noticed are convergence, density and the search for capacity by all available means. Convergence, simply put, is anything that needs to be connected to the network is connected to the same network. That means that not only do we have this proliferation of endpoints but we also have a more complex set of things being connected to the network. That is driving fibre closer to the subscriber, it's increasing density and increasing the number of endpoints - especially in our towns and cities. Finally, the search for capacity by all available means - whether that's by using a larger number of fibres, denser cables, higher bandwidths or searching for higher spectrally efficient fibres."
