Lowering the costs of optical transport networking. Deploying your own network even in a slow economy with shrinking budgets!

Time 02/03/09 12:30PM-01:00PM

Session Abstract

Have you looked at owning your own optical transport network in the past and decided against it given the equipment and infrastructure costs? Well, it may be time to look again. Next generation optical transport equipment like the Ekinops 360 next generation transport system bring the cost of ownership down. Technologies like single fiber transmission, elimination of amplification sites, lower power consumption, the ability to operate over lower grade, cheaper fiber, and multiplexing over fiber or leased lines (yes, you don't necessarily need leased fiber) allow for reduced cost of infrastructure and equipment.
