The Converged Interconnect Network (CIN) is designed for cable providers as a means to add appreciable capacity, agility, and scale to the existing HFC plant in a highly automated way while portending a massive rejuvenation of the last mile.
DevOps practices, such as those enabled by the Cisco Cloud Native Broadband Router (cnBR), can help cable operators improve performance and embrace change by building up and tearing down functions, features, and services on their own timetables.
Light Reading and Heavy Reading have teamed up again with SCTE/ISBE, along with five major industry vendors, to survey cable operators about their fiber buildout plans and strategies. Download your free copy of this report to read the results.
After rolling out DOCSIS 3.1 for 1 Gbit/s downstream speeds, is cable ready to make the next great leap to symmetrical 10 Gbit/s service? This e-book will look at how the industry got to this point, what its 10G prospects are, what kinds of hurdles cable faces, what types of services 10G would enable and where the competition stands right now.
To make the most of edge cloud computing CSPs need to look for opportunities along the entire value chain, from application development to middleware and connectivity. CSPs should ensure that the infrastructure solutions they choose are aligned with emerging standards and that they use state-of-the-art silicon and acceleration technology.
While interest in and hype around edge computing is high, detailed knowledge of the edge is remarkably low. This survey-based research project was commissioned to answer fundamental questions about the future of the edge, with a focus on the evolution of network connectivity to meet edge computing needs.
Existing optical networks benefit from Cisco’s Flexible Light Orchestration of Wavelengths(FLOW) control plane: fiber carrying capacity increases, cost per bit decreases, and next-gen data rates are supported, including 600G, 1 Terabit, and up.
The Cisco® NCS2000 Series Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) features provide extensive advantages during the optical network maintenance procedure, without having to purchase new line cards or waste available slots on the chassis.
This exclusive eBook explains the drivers behind Gigabit broadband, the technology options available and how to build a business case that ensures your deployment is a success.
Digital Realty needed a globally consistent infrastructure to support its colocation expansion efforts. Schneider Electric helped customize an EcoStruxure solution to provide a unified, efficient way to monitor and control its facilities, anywhere in the world — all through a single pane of glass.
As 5G is becoming a commercial reality in multiple lead markets, the question of how it should be positioned, packaged and priced will be critical in building competitive 5G propositions.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing industries, products and core capabilities by delivering dramatically enhanced experiences. However, the deep neural networks of today are growing quickly in size and use too much memory, compute and energy. Plus, to make AI truly ubiquitous, it needs to run on the end device within a tight power and thermal budget.
This white paper examines current service assurance systems and how they relate to Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning.
In the lead-up to 5G’s deployment, CSPs who start evolving their monetization solutions today will be in a much better position to capitalize on and monetize new opportunities right out of the gate — and also gain the scalability and agility needed to generate more revenue from existing sources now.
Learn how an early start on deploying a 5G-ready monetization solution will help you boost revenue for B2C and B2B services immediately and monetize 5G opportunities from day one.
There is nothing more frustrating than trying to figure out the real reason users are experiencing poor application performance. Is it the network? Is it the application? Something else?
Why OSS/BSS is Key to the Commercial Success of Network Slicing: A Heavy Reading white paper produced for Tech Mahindra
Do you have a plan for turning 5G excitement into revenue? Will your 4G pricing strategies still work, or will the market switch to speed tiers, hyper-segmented offers and other new monetization techniques.
