Innovating to Unleash the Value of Fixed Networks in the 5G Era

Last year saw an explosive growth of Fixed Broadband (FBB) and Mobile Broadband (MBB) networks as well as the volume deployment of gigabit access. The compound annual growth rate of the 10G PON market will exceed 30 percent in the next five years and more than 70 countries worldwide have started or are planning 5G rollouts. Judging from the broadband initiatives of different countries, the business strategies of operators, and the competitive landscape, an era of dual-gigabit speeds based on FBB and MBB has arrived and the two access technologies will coexist for a long time. FBB and MBB will work together to further accelerate technical innovation and network transformation.

Build optical cross-connect (OXC) transport networks with the lowest per-bit cost

The acceleration of 5G application, rapid development of video services, increasing demands for quality, and longer video viewing times lead to sharp traffic increases. Ovum predicts that global mobile broadband (MBB) and fixed broadband (FBB) traffic will reach approximately 3,000,000 PB in 2023, roughly triple 2019’s traffic. This brings great changes and challenges to transport networks.

Securing your connected home is great, protecting your identity is essential

This Vendor View is sponsored by F-Secure An operator customer buys a smart security camera to monitor her home. Savvy about the dangers of IoT devices, she connects the camera to her home WiFi network, which is protected with her broadband provider’s smart home security value added solution. So far, so good. Her camera is now protected from malicious traffic. But that’s not necessarily the end of the story. It’s well […]

Creating customer values with AI

5G represents a paradigm shift not only in the deployment, management, and operation of networks, but also the services that can be delivered and the experiences customers can have. For 5G networks to deliver value for the operators, through both improved efficiency and top line growth, artificial intelligence (AI) has important roles to play.

Shenzhen Subsidizes 5G Deployment: Why Are Governments around the World Subsidizing 5G?

It seems the entire telecom industry has recently been talking about a document issued by the Shenzhen government to boost the construction of 5G infrastructure and the development of the industry as a whole. This document stipulated that CNY10,000 will be compensated for every standalone (SA) 5G base station deployed, and telecom operators can receive […]

Innovations in Home Media Terminals for the Upcoming 5G Era

2019 is the first year for commercial 5G networks. By August, 5G services have already been officially launched in US, South Korea, Switzerland and several other countries. 5G networks, featuring high bandwidth, ultra-reliable low latency and massive concurrent connectivity, have immediately attracted a large number of early adopters. For example, 5G users in South Korea have exceeded one million within only two months, with a penetration rate faster than that of 4G. In addition, the development of 5G-empowered services, including industrial control, drone, Internet of vehicles, and AR/VR, brings revolution in business models for various vertical industries and inspires our imagination.
