EVOLVING IP AND OPTICAL ARCHITECTURES
ACG Research’s Evolving IP and Optical Architectures discusses the implications of IP traffic growth and new services on current architectures for operators. It explores the pros and cons of next-generation networks, which types reduce complexity, generate new revenue models, and improve operational efficiencies.
The growing IP traffic has been referred to as the upcoming zettabytes era. Is this prediction just marketing hype or a practical warning for operators to ready their networks? Regardless, demand for service-oriented architectures is increasing and operators have to move to new architectures to benefit from the new efficiencies.
