Overview: For network operators, the cost of keeping pace with growing bandwidth demand is outpacing the revenue generated, squeezing margins and threatening business models. Looking deeper, the characteristics of traffic driven by cloud applications and content delivery is changing traffic patterns, creating opportunities to optimize traffic flows, simplify the core network and minimize the need for routing. In this paper, ACG examines the five-year total cost of ownership (TCO) of Cyan?s packet-optical hollow core network solution versus comparable LSR and IP over OTN solutions. The results are game-changing.
