The increasing global demand for Wide Area Network processing power and speed means mobile wireless operators and bandwidth wholesalers are becoming overwhelmed by staggering volumes of Cloud & LTE traffic. Aggregate bandwidth usage is forecast to continue bringing a tidal surge of traffic behind waves of video and infotainment apps, Cloud data storage, social media, Location Based Services (LBS), Machine-to-Machine (M2M), smart homes, connected cars, and you name it.
The two conference sessions addressed questions about enterprise applications in the exploding field of M2M, or the Internet of Things. Moderated by Beecham Research CEO Robin Duke-Woolley, the sessions covered topics such as Long Term Connectivity, Small Vs Large Deployments, and Customer Service.
The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) celebrated the fortieth anniversary of Ethernet last month ahead of its quarterly meeting in San Diego. Ethernet’s father, Bob Metcalfe, presided as Metro Ethernet Forum President Nan Chen announced certification of 20 companies whose products passed rigorous testing for Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0.

Backaul of 3G and LTE macrocell traffic is one of the largest problems--and opportunities--in telecom. The world has gone mobile and is “going video”, and the future presents major obstacles. Demands of traffic growth, video applications, and mobility for workplace applications must be fit into limited, finite spectrum—the only viable solution is to multiply the use of that spectrum by introducing outdoor and in-building small cells, for 3G and LTE.
