On-demand webcast: Delivering on the promise of IPoDWDM
Delivering on the promise of IPoDWDM
IP traffic over dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) systems (IPoDWDM) has evolved with the rise of 400G coherent pluggables that promise to reduce power consumption, simplify the network, and enhance network flexibility. However, many operational challenges have arisen since its market introduction.
This free webinar will address these challenges and discuss the latest innovations to make IPoDWDM a reality in brownfield and disaggregated networks.
Who should attend?
Communication service providers, internet content providers, cable operators/MSOs, and enterprises who want to hear from the operators who are going through this journey and get insights from the field about how to successfully deploy IPoDWDM by overcoming its operational challenges.
Network Architect, Liberty Global
