The new age smartphone data revolution is led by 4G technology. Operators are discovering the benefits of 4G, namely meeting the increasing broadband demands by today’s smartphone users. An average 4G user typically consumes twice as much data per month as other users.
Obviously, the demand for mobile broadband is expected to soar in the coming days. Companies are gearing up for this hike in demand for data with new technologies. One such company, Vubiq Networks, recently selected Vitesse’s CEServices software, Serval-Lite VSC7416 Carrier Ethernet switch engine, and VSC8574 Gigabit Ethernet PHY to meet the increasing demands for 4G technology.
CEServices is used with with Vitesse Carrier Ethernet switch engines and enable the service providers to deliver highest Quality of Experience (QoE) to their end customers. It simplifies Ethernet business service provisioning as it works along with Vitesse's ViSAA-enabled Carrier Ethernet switch engines.
Currently, 2.5GHz and 5GHz public bands are used for Wi-Fi. Using unlicensed 60GHz band may add more capacity to 4G LTE (News - Alert) and LTE-Advanced networks. Unlike 2.5GHz and 5GHz public bands, 60GHz frequency is not burdened and so, the companies may expect to have smoother operations here.
“Easy service provisioning and management are critical for carriers. To support this, mobile networks require far more intelligence at the network edge to handle the bandwidth-hungry applications that consumers routinely demand,” said Larry O’Connell, product marketing director at Vitesse. “Vitesse’s Service-Aware (News - Alert) Architecture, or ViSAA™, integrates that intelligence into access and edge network equipment, enabling MEF CE 2.0-compliant solutions that readily support wireless network demands.”
Recently, the company unveiled SparX-IV family - VSC7442, VSC7444 and VSC7448. According to the company, these are the industry's only Ethernet switches that can be used in 802.11ac WLAN Enterprise deployments. These are ideal for motion control, factory automation and smart grid applications.
