Metro Aggregation

Telecoms are undergoing rapid change, due to the ubiquity of IP and the increasing flexibility required of the transmission network. Evolving customer needs call for ever-increasing, always-on services. Metro networks must support an extremely diverse set of services and customer needs, and thus require increasing scalability, agility and resilience. Scale to meet demand with cost optimized 100G and flexible network capacity.

  • Why Waiting for 5G is the Wrong Metro Strategy

    Today’s metro networks are rapidly evolving and have carriers in a conundrum. Pressured by exploding mobility, major initiatives to move to the cloud, skyrocketing consumption of high-bandwidth services and the promise of 5G right around the corner, most carriers are trying to decide between spending now to meet today’s demand or waiting to put the investment towards 5G. So what is the right strategy? Read more here.

  • Time to Rethink the Metro Network Refresh?

    Over the last few years, we have seen a major change in metro networks, driven by: 1) ubiquity of IP, 2) video demand and, 3) cloudification of services. However, up till now, apart from a move to support increased packet capabilities, metro networks have remained relatively stable and 10G still remains the currency of choice across ring or hub’n’spoke architectures. Is it time for  a refresh? Find out here.

  • A Race to the Bottom?

    Service providers need to evolve, and fast, or risk becoming part of the connectivity ‘race to the bottom’ in a rapidly changing and increasingly commoditised market. However, the metro network could provide salvation! Thanks to a perfect storm of market trends, service providers have one of two options: 1) do nothing and risk commoditisation, or 2) gear up and start adding value.  Learn more in our latest blog series.
