As the number of internet users continues to grow, the applications used have become exponentially more bandwidth intensive. In the face of this demand and growth, proper bandwidth management is essential for subsea network operators. In the March issue of Ocean News & Technology Magazine, XKL’s Chief Systems Architect Chad Lamb outlines the unique challenges these operators face and how they can make the most out of their subsea cable investment.
The process of controlling traffic passing through routers to ensure there is enough room for traffic surge has been a critical aspect in the network operator’s toolbox. No network operator wants to accept packet loss or high latency, as today’s end-users consider such inconveniences unacceptable. And while there are many complex approaches to bandwidth management, one of the most effective takes place at the simplest network layer.
By maximizing assets, network operators get the most capacity out of their subsea cables. With the introduction of XKL’s eVolocity 100G optical transport solution, network operators can leverage statistical multiplexing for Layer 1 to optimize network performance via dynamic bandwidth allocation.
