CALGARY, Alberta -- Optimum Communications Services, Inc. (OCS) has been granted a patent on its innovation enabling realtime self-optimizing packet switching and transport networks. This patent on network traffic throughput maximization techniques utilized in OCS' Intelligent Transport Network(TM) (ITN) can be found with its US Patent Number 7,333,511 via http://patft.uspto.gov/netahtml/PTO/srchnum.htm.

This unique network optimization method of OCS' ITN automatically adjusts capacities of an 'adaptive-mesh' of dynamic-bandwidth Layer 1 circuits based on realtime traffic load variations between network access points. As a result, ITN continuously maximizes the network customer traffic throughput, while being packet-layer transparent and directly interoperable with common standard customer equipment, e.g. MPLS routers or Ethernet switches.

"OCS's latest patent represents an innovative, leading edge methodology that in lab testing has demonstrated fiber-optic wavelength efficiency gains of up to 20X over traditional methods, while maintaining Quality of Service levels" according to Zeus Kerravala, Yankee Group's Senior Vice President of Enterprise Research. "Disruptive technology such as this being introduced by OCS significantly drives down the cost of bandwidth, helping to 'commoditize' Mbit/s in the service delivery market similar to what has already occurred in the computer memory industry."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
