Long Haul transport networks require more amplification and regeneration sites than metro networks and they are also operationally difficult as even routine activities such as wavelength turn-up and tuning typically require dispatching technicians to remote areas many miles from the nearest support site. Unplanned events such as outages and fiber breaks only compound the cost and difficulty.
The need for more bandwidth means the need for multiple radio frequencies at any particular site in turn requiring multiple additional remote radio heads (RRHs). At the same time, the competitive marketplace for mobile services is putting tremendous pressure on pricing meaning that the cost of the underlying infrastructure must be kept to a minimum.
The unprecedented increase in data, video and mobile usage is leading to rapid fiber exhaust, years ahead of the end-of-life scenarios expected by many carriers when they deployed their existing networks.
Traffic is added and dropped at more locations and the service mix is more volatile which to support, requires greater flexibility and manageability from your optical transport platform. With the EKINOPS 360 optical transport platform, you can optimize your network to provide exactly the support and performance you demand. With its modular architecture and using common hardware and software across multiple form factors, the EKINOPS 360 can be configured to address any metro or enterprise network requirement.
Cable MSOs continue to actively build out their next generation networks to deliver high bandwidth connectivity to their subscribers, both business and residential alike. New Distributed Access Architectures (DAA) move the fiber-coax demarcation point closer to the end user to increase capacity per subscriber and improve network efficiency. Doing so allows the MSO to eliminate RF amplifiers from the network that are not only costly to operate but actually limit their ability to upgrade the network.
The critical nature of the information that they hold in their custody requires ubiquitous access and rapid distribution of data and applications to ensure a seamless end-user experience.
