To meet consumer demands, new services and technologies such as 5G, LTE, PON, IoT and cloud services are launched with an increasing pace. New developments such as "autonomous vehicles", "augmented reality", "robotics" require flexible and programmable network functions. At the same time, the bandwidths of the networks must be continuously extended due to an increasing demand for data volume.
Nevertheless, costs and energy consumption should not rise any further. As a result, network operators need to fundamentally transform and optimize their communication infrastructures.
Meeting these challenges requires new network infrastructure concepts. On one hand, network functions need to be rigidly consolidated and on the other hand service functions of the network levels must be made more flexible. The following measures are recommended.
Functional analysis with assignment of network functions to administrative domains with clear interfaces
Less and more transparent network hierarchies
Consolidated network nodes, less but more powerful nodes
Gradually replacing closed, proprietary systems with "open source" systems
Transformation of protocol-centric networks into software-centric and distributed systems
Integration of existing and new systems into a robust and highly performant network
Our approach - sustainable & proven
