Rapidly rising demand for online video and data is being driven by smartphones, tablets, connected TVs and other devices, and enabled by faster copper, fiber and wireless broadband access. These dynamics are forcing network operators to accelerate capacity upgrades in the core of their networks. At the same time, the emergence of cloud-based services and personalized content is driving the need for more flexibility in these networks to quickly adapt to the requirements of consumers and businesses.
Speaking at Alcatel-Lucent’s annual technology symposium, Mr. Verwaayen said the new technologies had been pioneered by the company’s fast-growing IP division, which has already secured more than 25 percent of the market for service provider ‘edge routers’ – the systems that network operators deploy to manage broadband connections and service quality for residential and business users.
