Delivering Nanoseconds Clock Accuracy in 4G/5G Networks with OcNOS
Timing and Synchronization has become a key requirement for successful deployments of 4G/5G networks. It provides a network-based framework for distributing time, frequency and phase from a clock source over a packet-based network. A clock is a network node participating in this distribution. All network elements in time critical deployments need to be synchronized to […]

Disaggregating Routed and Optical Networks
Written by: STERLING PERRIN, Principal Analyst, Heavy Reading For years, routed networks and optical transport networks have been on different trajectories with respect to disaggregation and open interoperability. But common goals, technical innovations and general convergence are beginning to align these segments. To better understand network operator views and plans for disaggregation across the transport […]

IP Infusion Blog Series on Network Disaggregation

The Business Case for Network Disaggregation.

In the first post in our Network Disaggregation Blog Series we offered an introduction to network disaggregation, and highlighted proof points of how it is successfully being applied throughout the mobile network. Disaggregation partitions traditionally monolithic elements into components that may be replaced or scaled at will. Whether for the entire network, a particular network segment, network element, or major component, disaggregation ushers in a degree of openness and innovation breaking up vendor lock-in that has propped up costs, and hindered availability to new technologies.

Bridging Your World with L2
Network communications and automotive transportation often share terminology. A term used frequently in both is ‘bridges’. With road traffic, bridges are structures that allow traffic to move from one area to another. As the networking world moves forward in preparation for 5G, nearly every piece of the network is important. Bridging Layer-2 networks efficiently together […]

Bringing DevOps to the Game
A starting point for a better software development life cycle is to first identify and eliminate those activities that add little or no value for either customers or the company, or does so at a slow pace. Once these are removed, it will be easier to focus on improving the software development process and product […]
