Service Provider Information Technology, or SPIT, is Light Reading's term for the evolving set of non-traditional telecom (and data networking) technologies that allow for a greater degree of flexibility in the creation, management, delivery, and monetization of new-generation communications services.
What exactly is Service Provider IT and how does it relate to the communications ecosystem? Here's a graphic that'll give you a snapshot of what we're talking about and appeal to your inherent aesthetic sensibilities
What is SPIT, why is it 'hot stuff' and how does it relate to the major challenges facing communications service providers today? The updated SPIT Manifesto answers these questions and achieves the near impossible task of giving a slime green splat a happy home.
For operators looking to develop, deliver and monetize new services, run their companies more efficiently and provide an overall better experience for their customers, Service Provider IT, or SPIT, is just as important as the network.
MARTINSRIED, Germany and MUNICH -- ADVA Optical Networking today announced that it will be demonstrating its new CachejackTM technology in Booth 7D34, Hall 7, during Mobile World Congress 2013 at Barcelona's Fira Gran Via, Feb. 25-28. CachejackTM is designed to improve mobile user experience and enable location-based services (LBS) through an application-aware radio access network (RAN) and optimize resource utilization by uniquely transporting content directly from the backhaul network straight to the mobile subscriber. Visitors to ADVA Optical Networking's booth, using their own mobile devices, will be able to experience how CachejackTM accelerates downloading of content such as video streaming and high-resolution images from the Internet.
"We made a strategic investment last year in Saguna Networks and its technology for optimizing content delivery in mobile backhaul infrastructures, and now we have rapidly integrated this capability into our successful FSP 150 product line and are excited for the attendees of Mobile World Congress 2013 to experience the considerable improvements in user experience that CachejackTM uniquely delivers," said Christoph Glingener, chief technology officer of ADVA Optical Networking. "We continue to see fierce growth in demand for high-quality, rich content over mobile networks worldwide, and ADVA Optical Networking CachejackTM enables mobile providers a compelling array of benefits as they seek to capitalize on this demand among their subscribers. Improving user experience, enabling new revenue-generating LBS and reducing transport costs are of prime value to today's mobile operators."
