Aggregation is Key to Optimizing IP Network Designer

Chuck Meyer, Chief Technical Officer

The world of IP technology moves rapidly. The speed with which data moves through an Ethernet connection and the amount of bandwidth that connection can accommodate increases at a rate that makes network planning challenging. What makes it even more challenging? Usually, higher bandwidth interconnects, such as active optical connectors, are initially more expensive and less available due to their rapid adoption by data center and telecommunications installations. Supply eventually catches up to the demand, but costs sometimes make early adoption prohibitive.

In the world of broadcast and media distribution, IP networks are being deployed to exploit the benefits that this technology presents: scalability; simplified geographic distribution; workflow efficiency; and the promise of future bandwidth increases. They are also being deployed in an effort to provide faster adoption of new media distribution services and formats as the role of traditional broadcast evolves into a more consumer choice-driven business model."
