Access network cabling and connectivity

Improving broadband cabling infrastructure for what’s to come

With the rapid development of 5G networks, access network operators will need to prepare for the added stress that comes with the new bandwidth-hungry applications.. The strong demands for higher broadband speeds and increased capacity, both on wireline and wireless networks, are expected to grow exponentially with each passing year.

To address these challenges, service providers will need to embrace the virtualization (NFV, SDN) of the central office/headend and the convergence of wireline and wireless networks.

Along with the traditional active components, passive components of the access network also play a critical role in any network evolution. Passive optical solutions allows an existing network to reach it’s full potential with minimal investment and time. CommScope has solutions which can help implement any network strategy with the appropriate combination of technologies, topologies and services.
