Next-Generation Telecommunications Practice

Perhaps the biggest trend impacting telecom hardware is the shift to the Cloud and the software-defined network. Analysts have predicted the end of hardware before. But as Big Data promises to change the way we utilize networks and business intelligence, hardware has found a new role. Enterprise networks are looking more like carrier-class switching infrastructure, metro networks are looking more like the backbone, and fiber is everywhere.

As networks become more powerful and ubiquitous, the demand for next-generation hardware and software will be driven by services convergence. Current network architectures are not flexible enough to support all the demands for interoperability and reliability. Progress has been made, but current standards must evolve to meet the universal demand for mission-critical applications.

Mission-critical network communications is driving network evolution to support new standards in reliability, ruggedness, intelligence, mobility and security. Traditional node networks will be replaced by global fabric networks making it possible to dismantle communication silos and solve critical problems from the battlefield to the emergency room, from the forest fire to the natural disaster. Fabric networks are not limited by geography, because they are built on virtual nodes that are mobile, dynamic and intelligent enough to adapt to changing requirements.
