Keeping Up with Changes in LAN Traffic - Part 2

Over the last decade, enterprise LANs have evolved as a result of changes in the workplace. This in turn led to changes in LAN traffic management and LAN architecture. In a blog post 2 weeks ago, I addressed 2 key considerations to achieve superior traffic management - common LAN traffic restrictions and quality of service.

Keeping Up with Changes in LAN Traffic - Part 1

The days of designing LANs (local area networks) to support telephones, desktop workstations and locally switched traffic are over. Ten years ago, LANs were designed to support peer-to-peer traffic flows because 80%of traffic stayed local. Today, about 90% of LAN traffic flows directly to the WAN (wide area network).

How Will 100G Become Economical Enough for Metro Networks?

One challenge facing telecom service providers is exponential growth in data traffic from consumers and enterprises. Streaming video consumption, adoption of cloud services and proliferation of high-bandwidth Ethernet services are driving traffic growth. Such growth has driven development of 100G transport solutions. The industry has largely standardized on coherent based PM-QPSK technology for 100G transmissions.

Enabling Fast, Predictable, Reliable Tech Support

Our customers entrust huge amounts of customer traffic and corporate reputation to Tellabs when they decide to deploy our systems. So it's critical that Tellabs has the highest capability to solve problems and make decisions quickly and accurately whenever an operating problem is encountered.

Planning Long-Term to Alleviate Transport Network Congestion

Short-term fixes to long-term problems are disastrous for any company. This is especially true for those working to address the growing network congestion issue. High-demand services, such as high-speed data, video and cloud-based services, are creating bottlenecks unlike anything the industry has seen before. A key contributor to the issue is the cloud-service model.

Tomorrow's networks will run on fiber optics

By Roger Heinz, Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Services - July 9, 2013 / 10:00 AM The long-running debate about whether to use fiber optics or copper in the network is over. Fiber won years ago among telecom service providers in long-haul, metro and residential networks.

Packet Optical Is Now Mainstream for Metro

The long-term vision of Tellabs 7100 OTS is based the concept that as the network traffic begins to grow, network operators would benefit from an integrated, multi-service transport network to achieve the lowest cost-per-bit.

The Real Facts about Optical LAN: Security and Performance

Optical LAN, also known as GPON, is a game changer. Just look at the numbers. By replacing copper Ethernet LAN with fiber optics, you can save up to 70% of ownership cost, 80% of power requirements and 90% of space requirements. The reasons to make the shift to Optical LAN are clear.

Backhaul is key to delivering a great user experience

Mobile operators need to balance the quality of users' experience with the economics of running a mobile network. That's a hard job. One area where operators may be especially vulnerable is in mobile backhaul. For years, operators have invested about 17.5% of capital into backhaul.

The Real Facts About GPON

It seems laughable now, but I am sure when Henry Ford introduced motorized vehicles, there was a vocal group that argued against moving away from dependable, proven horse-drawn carriages for transport. There is a similar debate going on now about the change to more efficient gigabit passive optical network (GPON) technology for federal and commercial business networks.

Evolving Metro/Regional ROADM Architectures to support 400G and Beyond

Core DWDM networks have begun the shift to all-coherent technology based on 40G and 100G lambdas. Now the metro network is also experiencing significant traffic growth. Almost half of operators in a recent Heavy Reading survey ( Metro Packet-Optical Transport 2.0: A Heavy Reading Survey Analysis, March 2013) see annual traffic growth in excess of 30%.

How to Make Small Cell Developments Economically Viable

Small cells continue to interest mobile operators as a way to increase coverage and capacity as well as enhance mobile broadband user experience. A challenge with small cell deployments is how to make them economically viable with the needed scalability range for small cell coverage.

CE2.0: A New Era for Carrier Ethernet Enterprise Services
