Global mobile data traffic has been approximately doubling during each of the last few years, and this growth is projected to continue unabated. Thus, the mobile industry needs to prepare for the challenge to meet an increase in mobile data demand by a staggering 1000X over the next few years.

This white paper reviews a set of innovative approaches and technologies as building blocks to address this challenge. It also demonstrates that the merits of increased spectral availability are an important means to bridge the gaps between 1000x data demand and capacity performance that technology evolution provides.

Network operators around the world are facing increased pressure to meet today’s challenging expectations for revenue growth and profitability.

New revenue streams must be realized and new services rolled out faster than ever to remain competitive. Customers demand faster response times, lower cost, minimal downtime and better overall efficiency. Having easily accessible and accurate data for the physical layer network is critical to a network operator achieving these goals.

Today’s hardware and software solutions that rely on manual documentations do not provide the level of accuracy or accessibility needed.

IDC on behalf of Brocade | December 12, 2013 06:12 PM

The network represents the foundation for cloud computing. However, many legacy networks were not built with the cloud paradigm in mind. As the network's role in optimizing cloud-based applications becomes more important, IDC believes that more application intelligence will need to be instantiated into the networks of operators offering cloud-based services.

As this market continues to evolve, these providers will need to move quickly to create and deploy innovative differentiated service offerings to maintain their competitive edge by scaling service creation and applications and using open development platforms to customize those services.

Screen Digest on behalf of Access | December 02, 2013 06:12 PM

Operators have a broad ensemble of content at their disposal, and have the opportunity to extend this content far beyond the set-top box. In provisioning subscriber CE devices with high quality programming, operators are using their multiscreen services to secure future  revenues, and insure the critically-important value of the pay-TV subscription base.

However, given that multiscreen services require heavy investment today on the promise of income tomorrow, successful, well-monetized, financially-sustainable services will require solutions that minimize deployment costs, maximize device reach, and simplify incremental  revenue generation.

Three sets of technology - HTML5, DRM, and DLNA- have coalesced to allow operators to achieve this.

This white paper addresses the performance criteria of base station antennas (BSAs), by making recommendations on standards for electrical and mechanical parameters, and by providing guidance on measurement practices in performance validation and production.

It also addresses recommendations on applying existing environmental and reliability standards to BSAs.

Delivering additional radio network capacity and coverage through the deployment of small cells as part of a heterogeneous network is central to most mobile operators’ mobile broadband strategies, and Wi-Fi is a key element to satisfying the hungry data appetites of millions of smartphone and tablet users.
 
With Wi-Fi fully integrated into mobile-access and core networks – offering seamless, secure roaming, intelligent radio access type selection, session mobility and carrier-grade scalability and manageability – operators will be able to optimize the user experience and take advantage of a variety of flexible new business model.

How operators package, price and offer data enabled services is changing rapidly. Operators are rolling out new smart, flexible plans that deliver increased customer choice and enable value based pricing and dynamic services in the drive to increase data usage and revenues.
 
With examples from operators such as A1 Telkom Austria, AT&T, Axis, Orange, T-Mobile, Telkom Mobile, Telia, Turkcell and other leading operators this white paper analyses:
  • 10 of the leading data pricing and packaging innovations that operators are offering today
  • The returns that these smart data plans and offers are providing
  • The foundation on which these offers are built
Alcatel-Lucent | December 02, 2013 06:12 PM

Optical networking isn't just about pushing traffic any more. The insatiable demand for mobile, video and cloud-based services is placing enormous pressure on networks - and it’s no longer enough to simply increase capacity. What's required is a scalable, versatile and dynamic networking solution that can adapt to the ever-changing needs of users - in short, Agile Optical Networking.

Agile Optical Networking combines optical transport with multilayer switching and network intelligence to accelerate cloud, mobile and video services delivery.

Ciena | December 02, 2013 06:12 PM

Ciena's OPn bends the cost curve of networking down even with increasing bandwidth and rising uncertainty in service demands, while enabling network operators to monetize new applications better and more quickly and deliver superior user experiences. See how now.
