View archived webinar

Interoperability and field-test procedures accelerate time to revenue and ensure good service.

As fiber moves deeper into the access network and is married with Gfast copper technology to deliver gigabit services, there are several key test considerations that ensure success.

Attend this webinar and learn:

  • Advantages of combining GPON and Gfast
  • Gfast features
  • GPON construction and activation test
  • Upgrading and testing for Gfast
  • Speed testing to validate service and TCP efficiency

Consumers have always looked to the consumer electronics industry for cutting edge technology. Moving forward, service providers must reverse this pattern and move from defense to offense with the impending wave of IoT devices headed towards their subscribers' homes.

This webinar will focus on how service providers must leverage the hard-won position in the home network to fight off the web-scale competitors intent on relegating them in to wholesalers wholesalers that would still bear the burden of the support calls.

Webinar speakers will highlight the new approaches that need to be taken in order to reduce the time required to get to market with new services and ensure always-on connectivity, including a managed WiFi offering, which provides a strong foundation and a springboard for the oncoming chaos of IoT.

In addition, the webinar will showcase what elements are required to give service providers an advantage in the in-home device battle to establish and own the strategic point of presence including:

  1. 802.11ax WiFi technology
  2. Leading low-power IoT protocol support (e.g., BlueTooth, Zigbee and Z-Wave)
  3. MU-MIMO
  4. Voice recognition technology
  5. Advanced security

ADTRAN
View archived webinar

Growing bandwidth demand, competitive pressures, and ambitious political and regulatory goals promoting the Gigabit Society are forcing service providers to expedite their technology investments and place bets on the right technology choice. With a growing number of trials and start of commercial deployments, Gfast has emerged as the smart, pragmatic and future-proof solution to delivering on Gigabit Society goals.

During this Webinar, Werner Heinrich, Director Portfolio Management Broadband Solutions at ADTRAN, will discuss:

  • The Ultra Broadband toolkit and Gfast evolution status
  • The economics driving FTTx adoption
  • Unleashing the power of symmetric broadband services
  • Latest in Gfast solution packaging accelerating Gigabit service coverage
  • Improving network economics and services agility using SD-Access

Addressing the 5G Densification Challenge with Next-Gen PON Technologies
Date: 8/17/2017

ADTRAN
View archived webinar

5G promises connectivity 10 to 100 times faster than 4G networks, with latencies less than 1msec, making real-time applications such as tactile Internet useable over mobile networks for the first time. However, mobile operators will need to deploy ten times as many radio sites, each with highly reliable plug-and-go multi-gigabit connections, to achieve that level of performance.

In this UBB2020 webinar, Heavy Reading's Gabriel Brown and ADTRAN's Ryan McCowan will:

  1. Discuss 5G densification strategies and their network impact
  2. Outline the different requirements for backhaul and fronthaul needed to support 5G densification strategies
  3. Explore next-generation PON-fixed access technologies and software defined networking principles as emerging solutions to accelerate 5G densification
  4. Outline how NG-PON2, the next-generation multi-gigabit fiber technology, supports the x-haul (fronthaul, backhaul and crosshaul applications) requirements of 5G

IPsec is an important security technology for virtually all communication service providers (CSPs). CSP requirements for IPsec are shifting away from proprietary gateways due to cost and other factors like vendor lock-in. CSPs now require high-performance IPsec on general-propose x86 servers as this move opens up their business to more vendors, and gives them greater control of their network, at a lower cost basis. CSPs are looking for IPsec vendor solutions where they can deliver server configuration options, which achieve their requirements for deployment in the central office as well as data center environments. This webinar will discuss IPsec performance on x86 COTS servers, covering:

  1. Use cases for IPsec, including high-throughput data center interconnect, enterprise VPN and mobile backhaul
  2. How high-volume enterprise IT economics can support a new cost model for high-performance IPsec
  3. Brand-new performance test results showing IPsec on COTS can offer over 120 Gbit/s of bidirectional throughput on industry standard servers
  4. The importance of selecting the right server to ensure high performance and manageability of CSP networks whether in the CO or the DC
