Design, Build, Test and Deploy with Confidence
As Ethernet expands its deployment as the low cost, high data rate communication solution of choice, the question of whether to invest in Ethernet has become how to transition to Ethernet as soon as possible.
This demand is critical in Data Centers, Mobile Core and Mobile Backhaul. Data rates and bandwidth needs are growing exponentially due to Cloud Computing and the Mobile Internet.
The migration to Ethernet will be more acutely felt in the service provider space, while not disrupting existing services. And importantly, real-world testing of designs and deployments is a vital piece of migration alongside effective service assurance on live networks.
