Overview: It is well known that network operators' revenue growth has not kept pace with traffic growth. In order to retain sustainable businesses, operators must dramatically reduce their cost per bit for transport. Capex reductions alone are not sufficient to close the gap between traffic growth and revenue growth. This white paper focuses on how operators can use network element/layer convergence with packet-optical transport combined with flexible and dynamic networking (through new optical hardware innovations as well as software-defined networking (SDN)) in order to decrease network total cost of ownership (TCO).
