MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- A blueprint for enterprise/service provider Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solutions that provide visibility and programmability in data centers and networks has been outlined in a white paper by Cariden Technologies. The blueprint covers SDN use cases and value propositions in Flow Services and Virtualization SDN, and continues to introduce Infrastructure SDN, an exposition of network resources for optimization and management of traffic demands.
Using a Celcite COPS platform, an LTE RF Optimization program for LTE and the managed services of a Centralized Maintenance and Optimization Center has been successfully completed by a North American Tier 1 operator. The enterprise-grade GMS, UMTS, and LTE optimization product feature performance and configuration management, automatic intelligent correlation, and advanced analysis. The program run by this operator focused on improving PS retainabliity, latency, percentage time and traffic with the soft parameter tuning and RF shaping of more than 400 LTE sites.
WAKEFIELD, Mass. – Today, PICMG announced the adoption of the AdvancedTCA 3.1R2.0 specification for 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps) systems, quadrupling the achievable bandwidth of AdvancedTCA (ATCA) systems. 40G ATCA, as it is known, enables a single, full mesh-designed chassis to facilitate 10 Terabytes per second (Tbps) data transfers, which equates to the simultaneous switching and transport of more than 2 million HD video channels.
OVERLAND PARK and PARIS – Alcatel-Lucent and Sprint (NYSE: S) have announced an agreement to deploy lightRadio Metro Cells in high-traffic areas on the Sprint network to augment coverage. The mini basestations are 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, and Wi-Fi compatible, and deployable indoors or outdoors to fill gaps in coverage and increase broadband capacity. lightRadio's controller software is also virtualized, allowing for AdvancedTCA, blade server, or Cloud delivery in Sprint’s initial deployment focusing primarily on indoor applications for entertainment, transportation, and campus venues to improve QoS.
The Circuit Switched Fallback (CSFB) feeds data's insatiable bandwidth appetite while maintaining voice QoS, as explained in an interview with industry experts from three companies that collaborated on this new technology.
