Driven by the increasing deployment of wide-scale high-bandwidth services, there is now an urgent need to reduce the cost of bandwidth. In this presentation, Niall Robinson will discuss possible architectures that could help achieve this, including combinations of low-cost technologies and open source solutions such as protected and non-protected solutions. He will also explore how real-time fiber monitoring and other extensions can be leveraged with little financial impact.
