The demand for broadband solutions is not slowing. In fact, as multi-media content in rich video continues to proliferate the market and consumers want instant access to the latest innovations, the demand is actually on a strong growth path. For carriers, that means they must be able to deliver on the necessary bandwidth, which is driving a wide-scale adoption of carrier Ethernet.
As captured on this Actelis (News - Alert) page, carriers are building out portfolios of converged and cloud-based applications and services, fueling the demand for scaling higher bandwidth and delivering on customer demand for broadband solutions. It’s no longer enough to focus simply on meeting the large bandwidth needs of the large enterprise and urban dwellers; the demand is more far-reaching.
Therefore, operators must be able to move beyond simply providing additional bandwidth to support the applications to cost effectively scale to meet higher bandwidth demands for every enterprise. Broadband solutions must be efficiently delivered to every enterprise, regardless of location or distance from the central office.
To meet this growing demand for bandwidth and broadband solutions, there are a number of key elements of scale to consider. The carrier must have the ability to deliver adequate bandwidth, the ability to cover the entire subscriber base, and the ability to deliver the desired services in a cost effective manner.
With these elements identified, carriers can then focus on how to deliver on broadband solutions demand. First, the services offered must not only be in demand, they must also be competitive. Second, carriers must be able to build adequate and reliable capacity in a manner that is efficient and cost effective. This capacity must be built out in backhaul networks and last/first mile services.
The demand for broadband services also dictates that carriers deliver services to the majority of their customer base, manage the network efficiently in terms of deployment, installation, support and troubleshooting, and leverage the existing resources to maintain costs and support rapid deployment.
