The network hardware industry is changing. Now is the time to look for new opportunities and emerging players. As broadband service providers (BSPs) experience customer growth and increased bandwidth demand, many have the motivation to provide advanced services to their serving areas by deploying fiber and network hardware capable of supplying the new definitions of broadband.
Watch this video to see how service provider, AcenTek (serving Michigan, Minnesota, and Iowa), is taking on this challenge by partnering with Calix.
Ethan Webinger, Chief Technology Officer of AcenTek, discusses the network challenges he faced, ranging from:
- Weaknesses in the IP and PLS core based on a ring topology.
- Problems in nodes propagating to subsequent routers.
- Inefficiencies in upgrading throughput in a single node.
- And more…
Additionally, many possible solutions were either scaled up or scaled down and he felt that Tier 3 Service Providers were an afterthought.
Discover how AcenTek was able to address these challenges and increase operational efficiency by moving toward a leaf/spin technology and embracing a partnership with a player committed to both parties winning.
