Evolving the Metro Network


Today’s internet gets connected in the metro thanks to a combination of a flexible and operationally efficient optical infrastructure plus data centre interconnect. Still, major trends are responsible for driving the need for carriers to evolve their existing metro optical networks into scalable infrastructures even further. create more and more demand for high-capacity metro data centre interconnect transport between cloud hosting and content delivery facilities. In ‘Evolving the Metro Network’ ADVA puts a strong case forwards as to why operators need to rethink their metro networks and how they can help you achieve a flexible optical layer, make OTN scalable, build time-sensitive transport networks whilst avoiding high first in costs.

The Role of Higher Baud Rater in Evolving Coherent Transport


In this white paper, Coriant identifies the benefits and use cases for higher baud rates. With DCI traffic, internet video and mobile data traffic forecast to grow with a CAGR of 31.9%, 31% and 46% accordingly, network operators need to scale capacity cost effectively. When looking at busy hour traffic, growth is closer to 36% and has a far greater impact on the optical transport network, which is usually dimensioned for peaks rather than averages. Download the white paper to discover how evolving coherent technology has a key role to play if bandwidth escalation is to be delivered without dramatic increases in both CapEx and OpEx.

Going Cloud Native


With network value shifting to cloud-based software applications, service providers must realign their strategies and learn to swim in the cloud world. ECI’s ‘Going Cloud Native’ argues that in order to catch up, Service Providers ‘need to introduce service agility and operations automation’. Yet, to remain competitive, SPs will need to consider how applications are developed, deployed and managed – some have already started to adopt cloud architectures. Would you like to learn more about cloud software engineering techniques? Are you looking for the advantages and benefits of different Cloud Software Techniques – including Microservices, Containers and SP Pass? If you’re answer is yes, then this white paper is a must-read for you.

100G/400G Testing Guide


According to Exfo, one of the challenges that the industry is currently facing in terms of 100G line‑side testing is that there are no established standards or recommendations to guide manufacturers and operators on how to test the cards, transponders and systems, or as to how links should be qualified prior to the installation of such systems. ‘100G/400G Testing Guide’ does exactly what the label says. It presents an overview of high-speed technology, 40G/100G system testing and lab qualifications, plus 40G/100G commissioning and turn‑up for both line and client side.

Introducing the Adaptive Network Vision


The Adaptive Network is Ciena’s vision of a new target end-state for network providers. It utilizes automation, guided by analytics and intent-based policies, to rapidly scale, self-configure, and self-optimize by constantly assessing network  pressures and demands.

The Adaptive Network is built on three key foundation elements:

  • Analytics and Intelligence
  • Software Control and Automation
  • Programmable Infrastructure
