A deep dive into the Importance of OTN

Optical Transport Network (OTN) technology remains a key enabler in the wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) transport domain. Its ability to partition optical bandwidth to satisfy the demands of individual applications and services effectively disaggregates usable capacity from the optical channel itself.  Without OTN, the two are inextricably linked. If the data rate of the service is lower than the capacity of the wavelength, the wasted bandwidth cannot be recovered. The efficiencies enabled by OTN segmenting this capacity across multiple services create operational, scalability and total cost (CAPEX + OPEX) benefits. While OTN has been around since 2004, it has primarily been used by global Tier 1 operators in charge of vast national and international networks, where squeezing out every last drop of bandwidth is essential to streamlining operations and keeping expenses under c
Hybrid Fiber Coax, known as “HFC”, is the well-established cable access network architecture.  As the name suggests, HFC consists of two separate media connecting a cable head-end to the subscriber.  While the coax portion that connects to
Last weekend, Christine Lesellier, part of Ekinops’ Sales administration team, made the 12-hour flight to Japan to participate in the IPF World Bench Press championships. Taking place on Saturday 18 th May in Tokyo, the event combined equipped bench
A growing number of Service Level Agreements (SLA) between customers and Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are being expressed in terms of percentiles. This practice gives CSPs the opportunity to both refine the SLA collaboratively with their cu
Four days. 44 riders. 435 Km, $230k: How Ride 4 Ceylon is supporting Sri Lanka’s post-war recovery Last month, I was proud to be one of 44 cyclists that participated in Ride 4 Ceylon (R4C), a challenging 435Km charity ride from Colombo to Jaffna in S
Interesting similarities can be observed between SD-WAN and NFV. NFV aimed at ending the reign of monolithic solutions, with software and hardware decoupling, but also with the use of open APIs that facilitate the ability to pick, choose and replace
Guillaume Crenn, EKINOPS Product line & Marketing Director, recounts a recent technical breakthrough enabling legacy optical equipment to function in tomorrow’s virtualized networks. Interoperability remains one of the biggest challenges facing o
I know this question reads like comparing apples with oranges. In fact, I want to compare a uCPE managed with NETCONF versus a uCPE managed as an OpenStack compute node. First, it’s worth looking at why people think using OpenStack is a good idea. Op
