Telecommunications networks are going through major transformations to meet insatiable bandwidth demand growth. The cable operators are marching towards 10G capable HFC solutions, the fiber operators are rolling different PON solutions, and other targeted access solutions are evolving (such as Fixed Wireless and Low Orbit Satellite). In addition to the exponential demand growth, the competition amongst these operators is rampant, and the changing bandwidth needs are encouraging the FCC to redefine the basic definition of broadband. This is causing a perfect storm of a spending spree in the Telecom networks.
