Mobile Data Traffic: Taming the Beast!


Thanks to the seemingly insatiable appetite for data on the move, mobile data traffic is expected to continue growing at a phenomenal rate into the foreseeable future. Besides the volume of data flowing through wireless networks, the number of connected devices is also expected to explode as a result of growth in machine-to-machine (M2M) deployments. As such, mobile data clearly needs to be proactively managed in order to keep CAPEX and OPEX under control, ensure fair use of network resources, guarantee quality of service (QoS), and enable operators to monetize their infrastructure investments. The introduction of VoLTE, conversational video, and other such QoS-sensitive services makes this all the more critical. Certain key mechanisms such as policy and charging control (PCC) and deep packet inspection (DPI) can be employed to manage and monetize mobile data. These techniques should work flawlessly within a live network in order to meet the above-mentioned objectives, with comprehensive lab testing being the only way to ensure such cohesion.

Le dépannage des réseaux DWDM : une étude de cas


Cette session d’une heure portera sur le cas vécu du dépannage d’un système à très haut débit utilisant le multiplexage dense en longueurs d'onde (DWDM), à multiple canaux (17). Ce système montrait un niveau élevé d’erreurs (haut BER) et le défi était d’identifier et de corriger le problème sans compromettre le très grand volume de trafic dans le réseau. Quels sont les meilleurs outils et la meilleure approche à suivre? Inscrivez-vous pour connaître la réponse. Cette session s’adresse à tous ceux et celles qui sont responsables de l’entretien et de la mise à niveau de réseaux à très haut débit DWDM.

End-to-End Testing within the Wireless Ecosystem


Telecom operators are looking to serve their customers better and better in order to generate more revenue—and specifically, better average revenue per user (ARPU), with the goal of selling them new services and retaining the most profitable subscribers. Likewise, mobile operators are trying to draw subscribers into the same virtuous circle. The difficulty for mobile networks is that they are dependent on external resources: access networks are heterogeneous, the “last mile” is over the air, making it difficult to control its quality, and over-the-top (OTT) services are provided by third-party sources.

DAS, LTE, Small Cells and Wi-Fi: What's Next (Hosted by Infonetics)


Despite the momentum of small cells, the distributed antenna system (DAS) business remains strong as major mobile operators continue to deploy DAS and upgrade DAS to Long Term Evolution (LTE) in large venues such as stadiums where small cells are inadequate. This webinar analyzes the future of DAS and its relationship to small cells, remote radio heads (RRHs), and Wi-Fi.

Building a Passive Optical LAN (POL) for High-Bandwidth Enterprises


Following the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) trend to deliver more bandwidth to consumers, a new technology is emerging that promises to provide more bandwidth, more services and future-proof networks to enterprises. Passive optical LANs are changing the way we think about designing the local area network. This webinar will provide an introduction to POL technology, compare POL and traditional Ethernet switching architectures, and review the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) standards applicable to the design and testing of POL solutions in order to address considerations such as splitters, connectors, signals and more.

Small Cells: The Best Ally Against Density (Hosted by Mobile Europe)


Network operators and equipment manufacturers are concerned with the explosive increase in mobile broadband traffic. For both operators who are planning to roll out LTE services and manufacturers who are building new equipment, the challenge lies in being able to effectively handle the traffic.

Small-cell technology appears to be the best solution for minimising strain on networks. Since there are a number of small-cell deployment options available, choosing the best one will depend on various factors.

OPEX Reduction and Happy Customers: Save time, money and troubles in your fiber optic networks


In today’s competitive marketplace, where customer loyalty and retention is at risk, service providers need to maintain a high level of service and network reliability on a tighter budget.

In addition to negotiating the best prices on fiber/cable, infrastructure, transmission and test equipment on a day-to-day basis, solving network weaknesses is yet another way to reduce operation costs.

Accelerating Fault Location with Fiber Monitoring Mapping Tools


The main purpose of fiber network monitoring is to allow operators to find faults and degradations before subscribers do! With the proper equipment, operators can quickly identify problems and send field technicians to the appropriate location to solve them. This is why the ideal network monitoring solution will leverage a geographic information system (GIS) to correlate the optical information with the geographical positioning.

FTTH Network Monitoring and Innovative Certification Method from CO - Hosted by FTTH Council Americas


Controlling expenses related to operation, support and maintenance of FTTH networks is key for operators to ensure fast return on their capital investments.   Nowadays, for FTTH deployments, vendors offer platform-agnostic (equipment-vendor independent) in-service OTDR testing and monitoring from the central office. Specifically, to capture, locate and report fiber impairments from the central office, three solutions are available on the market.

Testing Fundamentals: Testing Wideband Copper and DSL


While removing copper and replacing it with fiber would seem to be the logical choice to meet the need for increased access, speed and reliability, in reality costs and legislative barriers dictate otherwise. Service providers are trying to squeeze every last drop of bandwidth out of their existing copper networks, but testing and qualifying copper networks is now more complex than ever, especially in light of future technologies such as that will use frequencies over 200 MHz.
