Fiber and Wire Roadblocks: How Microwave can Help

The typical forms of voice and data transport for Carrier Ethernet Services are fiber and copper. While both provide connectivity in access networks, fiber is favoured for its prolific capacity, and copper is most widely used in environments with an existing telephone network . However, there are times when physical, geographical, legal, political or financial […]

Microwave and Carrier Ethernet: Separating Fact from Fiction

If you want to cause a stir, walk into a room full of seasoned technicians and mention microwave. Citing the twin fears of limited capacity and weather-dependent performance, many will offer stories of past problems without realizing that, like many other things in life, microwave has moved on. The Future is not the Past The […]

Ethernet’s Path to Ubiquity

Ethernet has been in a state of perpetual evolution since its inception – with significant accommodation for backwards compatibility thanks to frame structure standardization. While exponential increases in throughput are perhaps most noteworthy, Ethernet has also seen improvements in the flexibility of Media Access Control (MAC) mechanisms at Layer 1. A number of physical (PHY) sub-layer […]

Optimizing Economies of Scale in DTV Transmission Systems

The global digitization of over-the-air broadcast television presents an unprecedented opportunity for networks to realize capital and operational cost efficiencies at the transmitter site. In this report, just released by WireIE, we explore a DVB-T multimarket solution where STL/backhaul costs are greatly reduced in comparison to equivalent analogue systems. The report also looks at the significant […]

Network Architecture Considerations for Smart Grid

Most would agree that the traditional centralized electrical distribution model will evolve to a distributed generation (DG) model. When this occurs, and to what degree remains to be seen. Regardless, a smart grid communications infrastructure is essential in the safe, reliable and efficient management of a DG infrastructure. For the past couple of years, WireIE […]
