Broadband Forum 2011 kicks off today in Paris. The three day tradeshow and conference is arguably a Grand Slam event on the industry calendar and it’s fitting that our team is showcasing our new Liquid Net architecture and other innovative offerings here this week to a global audience.
Visitors to BBWF will also get a first glimpse of our commercially-ready 100G optical transport platform which boosts transmission capacity of optical fiber networks by 150 percent over existing 40G channel rates without compromising reach and performance.
We are also introducing Network Cloning Service that simplifies network modernization (RadioNetwork Controller upgrade) and cuts modernization time from months to days and cuts costs by 50%.
