Scaling The Gigabit Society Takes More Than Just Funding

Aired Tuesday, 31st March, 2020

Telecoms Infrastructure is rapidly becoming the vanguard for the investment community as they desperately seek out reliable, but meaningful returns. 
As evidenced in Portugal, Spain, UK, and now Germany, investors of prudence are favouring fibre-based infrastructure builds over traditional safe havens. This is driving an explosion in available funds, which when married with Government mandates, EU policy and regulation changes, and the latest broadband targets laid down within the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) and in the near final definitions of Very High Capacity Networks (VHCN), is creating a perfect storm.

Powering Full-Fibre Networks with 10Gigabit

Aired Tuesday, 9th July, 2019

All around the UK and EU-28 there’s tremendous buzz with both existing and new alt-net providers rolling out “full-fibre” networks. However, all these providers are faced with the stark reality that fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks built around 15-year-old GPON technology could become tremendously strained as emerging 4K and 360º video, streaming gaming services, high-bandwidth enterprise applications and 5G mobile backhaul are set to consume capacity.

Is your 5G data architecture ready for microservices?

Aired Wednesday, 5th June, 2019

5G architecture recommends a service-based approach to enable end-to-end software defined network functions. Initially virtualization-based and now heading toward containerization, a service-based approach inherently leads to a need for separation of state and business logic. What is missing in this thought-line is a clear understanding of the nuances of this separation.
