ISPs are ready to upgrade as the world's internet bandwidth is pushed to the brink
Internet Service Providers (ISPs) of all sizes are re-evaluating their IT infrastructure capabilities as the world's internet bandwidth struggles under the weight of millions of extra users unaccustomed to being confined to their homes. Regulators are even urging major streaming services, including YouTube, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video, to reduce their bandwidth usage as to minimize stress on the network. Although it may seem trivial to lose HD streaming, the unprecedented circumstance exposes a very real infrastructure challenge.
The current situation is taxing the internet with large populations working from home, schooling from home, and consuming media all at the same time. Network operators are scrambling to identify a variety of solutions to support scale at unprecedented levels.
The good news is that ProLabs' solutions are built for scale. Whether you need to migrate from 1G to 10G and beyond, here are top options to consider:
- Moving from 1G to 10G – Enhance your edge and access networks with our wide range of SFP+ transceivers to CWDM and DWDM fixed and tunable wavelengths.
- If you need more efficient use of fiber resources –10G tunable SFP+ transceivers are a smart choice that enable ISP subscribers to enjoy higher bandwidth, while simplifying on-site setup. And when the DWDM transceivers can self-tune, this further reduces costs – as the need for tuning equipment is eliminated. Clarity™ auto-tunable transceivers work at both 1G and 10G with plug and play deployment, covering all your wavelength needs with no host intervention required. Simply plug into host device and passive mux, the transceiver does the rest.
- Migrating from 10G to a 25G or 100G infrastructure – Our wide range of SFP28 transceivers is a popular upgrade to keep up with rapidly increasing demands whilst limiting cost exposure. The transition from 10G is most often driven by more bandwidth for video streaming or to offer flexibility in the server rack. 25G is the interim option before stepping up to 100G.
- Fiber patch cables, the popular choice to connect it all together - ProLabs’ test certified fiber patch cables are robustly constructed, ensuring circuit integrity and seamless connectivity. A wide assortment of single mode, multi-mode, and MPO cables are available. View all fiber patch cable options.
