Bandwidth and Capacity: The Passive Infrastructure Challenge

Posted by James Donovan on July 12, 2017
Don’t look now, but your bandwidth capacity is being gobbled up. Service providers must continue to evolve their network architectures of costly and increasing unnecessary hierarchies. One way they can do that is by deploying passive infrastructures so they can optimize their costs per bit. If you are unsure how to deploy passive infrastructures in your network, James Donovan and CommScope Infrastructure Academy is here to help. This blog highlights the Academy’s first eBook designed to help you better understand the passive infrastructure that underpins your network.
