The power of network functions virtualization (NFV) and universal CPE (uCPE) is openness and choice. But with that choice comes the work of integration and testing. At ADVA, we’re proud to partner with IBM in bringing pre-validated solutions to IBM’s telco and enterprise clients. Now they can get the benefits of choice and the industry’s top suppliers, all orchestrated by IBM’s solutions – and without the headache of assembling components. What does that mean for IBM’s clients in the real world? Let’s take a closer look ...

Network providers are eager to push new services out to their clients, and the clients are eager to consume them. The major problem, however, is that while most access networks have been upgraded to fiber over the past two decades or so, the new surge in service-related data is likely to overwhelm legacy end points and transceivers, rendering all that fiber moot ...

We’ve seen tremendous progress in DSL and microwave technology for high-bandwidth transmission. Both domains achieved high speeds by leveraging very advanced modulation technologies and by utilizing more spectrum and higher frequencies. Today, Gbit/s transmission over copper cable is possible by using a broad 200MHz spectrum in combination with vectoring and a very advanced modulation scheme. Similarly, microwave radio systems utilizing 2.5GHz spectral width in the E-band can even achieve 10Gbit/s bandwidth, albeit at a significantly higher price point ...
