400G ZR+ Reshaping the Economics of Metro and IP Optical Networks

June 21, 2021

400G ZR+ is a disruptive technology that delivers 400G optical transmission in standard and interoperable pluggable form factors. With sourcing from multiple suppliers, 400G ZR+ promises to bring improved economics to service providers for transporting 100GbE, and growing 400GbE client traffic, all while being superior to 800G solutions that rely on expensive embedded and proprietary technology. This paper explores how service providers can quickly capitalize on all of the benefits of 400G ZR+ and essentially change the economics for IP and Optical transport.

Service performance measurement methods over 5G experimental networks

whitePaper | May 1, 2021

This white paper (available in both short and long versions) analyses the 5G-PPP projects’ use cases of various verticals for their performance KPIs and their mapping to the 5G network KPIs. The scope is to identify (based on architectural elements analysis, information flow, etc.) the potential impact on the service performance and the perceived user quality. The considered use cases belong to the following domains: Smart Cities & Utilities, Transportation, Automotive, Media & Entertainment, Agriculture & Agri-food, Smart (Air)ports, Energy and E-health & Wellness. The goal was to understand the relationship between the 5G network performance indicators and the vertical services.

HOW TO SEIZE THE 5G OPPORTUNITY

whitePaper | May 26, 2021

5G is fast becoming a reality with widespread deployments expected by 2021. 5G will deliver speeds up to 1,000 times faster than 4G, as well as much lower latency and the ability to support huge numbers of devices connecting to the network simultaneously. Not only will 5G deliver benefits to the consumer in terms of increased speed, but it will unlock the full potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) and support the vast array of connected devices that will be prevalent.

Deepwave Digital Creates an AI Enabled GPUReceiver for a Critical 5G Sensor

whitePaper | February 10, 2020

Deepwave Digital has leveraged the Artificial Intelligence Radio Transceiver (AIR-T) to create the first deep learning sensor for a 5G network. This network, the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), will be the first spectrum sharing service provided by the telecommunications industry that leverages real time RF sensing. Critical to the operation of CBRS is the ability to determine if priority users are active on specific frequency channels. When no priority users are present, the spectrum may be reallocated for commercial networks to provide new enterprise services or additional bandwidth to existing services.
