As we see in current Telecom network trends more and more traffic will pass across telco networks in 2020 than in the last 135 years added together. By the year 2020 a billion Terabytes or a Zettabyte of traffic will be sent over the telco network. This immense increase in traffic is due to increased use of smartphones, connected devices, and the use of mobile broadband with many services that are hosted on the IP networks. Operators are looking for ways to increase capacity, coverage and at same time ensure that their business KPIs are met. Traditional network architectures are ill-suited to meet the requirements of today’s enterprises, carriers, and end users. The future of connected society is Internet of Things (IoT). The ICT industry in general, sees Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) as a key new technologies for realizing the attributes of IoT. With Internet of Things not only that we need to do the networking differently or virtualize the network to scale network function better but at the same time we need greater physical capacity in the backhaul to transport high amount of data. With advanced technologies in Fiber network this mission will be realized.
