Time to Turn the Lights Out on SONET

June 21, 2021

ince its launch in the mid-1990s, SONET has been an extremely successful technology, with millions of nodes deployed and billions of dollars made from the incredibly diverse set of applications it has supported. This paper explains the technology evolution of SONET and lays out the case for why service providers should consider migrating their legacy networks to IP-based transport.

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.

The Third Wave of the Internet

whitePaper | August 5, 2021

The third wave of the Internet is marked by substantial growth of more mobile, powerful, intelligent, and automated devices on the emerging edge network. In this environment, IT and OT will be converged and contribute to the increasing volume of data creation. This growth will outpace the growth of the core infrastructure capacity and create congestion points in the end-to-end application delivery chain, causing massive latency. Delay will bring near fatal blows to system stability and the application experience. Security challenges will also increase significantly. These conditions require a new approach—one centered around holistic application distribution and based on a different set of technology design principles. This is the essence of the Edge 2.0 era.
