Analysis of the current state and future prospects of data transport networks.
Data transport networks form the technical “backbone” for network operations in the telecommunications industry. These networks link antenna sites, data centers, peering points, etc. and ensure that the core functionality in the respective network is guaranteed. A telecommunications company wants to understand the current requirements for data transport networks, in order to identify future prospects and align strategy accordingly. In this project, it was essential to consider continuously increasing data volumes, permanent cost pressure, and new requirement profiles (e.g., innovations such as edge computing, campus networks, 5G).
