Access-to-Core Optical Transport Network Switching

June 21, 2021

Layer 1 transport services are a highly profitable offering that service providers can sell to enterprises. These services, which include ethernet, fiber channel, and legacy SDH/SONET, provide connection to data centers and other corporate locations. However, it has always been a challenge to provision these services fast enough, due to the rigid, low-cost nature of optical access networks. This paper highlights how an innovative and economical access-to-core Optical Transport Networking (OTN) switching solution can enable service providers to provision these lucrative services rapidly, speeding up time to revenues, maintaining customer satisfaction, while also guaranteeing service availability.

5G spectrum for local industrial networks

whitePaper | May 6, 2021

Many industries are looking at 5G as the backbone of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It is a golden opportunity for communications service providers (CSPs) to create and capture new market spaces by driving innovation, efficiency, and growth across various industries. A key factor influencing the uptake of wireless solutions is the question of how to handle spectrum for industrial purposes, since reliable connectivity demands licensed spectrum. Some countries provide spectrum dedicated for industrial use, whereas others do not. The intention of this paper is not to discuss the pros and cons of such spectrum strategies, but rather to focus on industries with local radio coverage needs. It tries to show that whether licensed spectrum is set aside for industries or not, CSPs are in the prime position to optimally address these industrial connectivity needs with powerful 5G networks and business models focused on industries. For regulators intending to implement licensed spectrum dedicated to industrial use, this paper aims to describe how this should best be done using simple principles and the well-defined legislation already available in most countries across the world.Many industries are looking at 5G as the backbone of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Wi-Fi 6 or 5G for Enterprise?

whitePaper | May 7, 2022

Enterprise IT leaders, commercial property owners, and facilities managers need to develop strategies that will ensure wireless connectivity that meets the evolving needs of all their stakeholders. Wi-Fi 6 and 5G represent the latest emerging wireless standards in the unlicensed and licensed spectrum, respectively, with each offering impressive capabilities across multiple dimensions. Given the significant advances embodied in each of them, it’s natural to ask whether both are still needed—or whether one will replace the other.

Service Provider Outlook

whitePaper | July 20, 2021

In 2Q21, Heavy Reading surveyed 86 communications service providers (CSPs) across global regions on their plans for customer premises equipment overall and universal CPE (uCPE) specifically. This report presents the highlights of that survey. Omdia’s uCPE Tracker – 1H21 Annual Forecast report projects that the worldwide uCPE hardware market will grow from $52.5m in 2020 to $2.3bn in 2025—an impressive CAGR of 113% over five years. With this in mind, Heavy Reading expected to see good support for uCPE from survey respondents, and we were not disappointed. We targeted the survey at CSPs planning to implement uCPE within, at most, 24 months. Nevertheless, the respondent pool showed a more lively than anticipated adoption of uCPE. 59% of US, 61% of Asia Pacific (APAC), and 39% of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) respondents have already deployed uCPE.
