According to a report from the International Data Corporation, the need for broadband solutions
is on the rise. The research carried out by the IDC (News - Alert) says broadband traffic generated by the Internet will increase by 50 percent year over year.
This Market Watch report
shows that in 2010, worldwide wireline and mobile broadband traffic used around 9,600 petabytes per month. That is expected to shoot to 116,500 by 2015, according to the IDC research. What is driving that consumption is likely the increased use of file sharing and streaming video. But there are many applications in development and currently in use that are helping to drive the bandwidth consumption.
Significant usage amounts are tied in with large amounts of capacity. Likewise, faster broadband speeds usually leads to more bandwidth usage. New services will get greater use as capacity increases. According to the IDC’s research, all the HD video that people are viewing on their smartphones and tablet computers is pushing demand for bandwidth levels. Service providers need to come up with more bandwidth to help drive revenue and usage.
Broadband solutions, such as those provided by Actelis
, are helping to meet these consumption issues. Specifically, Actelis’s (News - Alert) Broadband Accelerators (BBAs) provide an extremely cost-effective solution that delivers high-bandwidth services. In fact, Actelis’s broadband solutions, which include ADSL/ADSL2 and 2+ accelerators, can reach ADSL services by more than 50 percent, and can boost rates by as much as 100 percent on traditional loops and by more than 400 percent on the longer loops.
With this kind of performance, carriers are able to reach out to the underserved markets
whose broadband levels have been severely lacking. These areas that have historically lacked are able to achieve IPTV (News
- Alert) service and OTT video services through Actelis’s BBAs.
Broadband solutions offered by Actelis cohabitate nicely with legacy systems as well
. For instance, the BBAs can fit into many typed of enclosures, and can be installed at existing splice points, which requires no EMS or IT integration. And the BBAs auto-calibrate, which gives the best bandwidth and ability to tip-and-ring roll, making installation relatively easy.
Not only are the broadband solutions provided by Actelis easy to install and manage, they will leverage the existing infrastructure and improve the efficiency of existing DSLAMs. With Actelis’s BBAs, there is no need for additional power supplies because the power consumption is fairly small and uses POTS that are already in the line.
As the broadband traffic increases hand over fist, broadband solutions like those offered by Actelis will remap the broadband road of the future.
