Hybrid Switch Technology
Our new-generation Hybrid Switch Technology represents a major evolution. With full bandwidth for SDH and packet connections, it offers traffic switching in native formats and the deployment flexibility of non-blocking connectivity, using patent-pending technology.
The new technology provides a bandwidth of 480Gb/s for both TDM circuits and packet connections, with the native-format traffic switching including native SDH cross-connecting, free of circuit emulation penalties for TDM switching. Similarly, native packet switching is achieved without any stranded bandwidth.
Non-blocking connectivity enables every input to connect to any output, while offering native multicast broadcast functionality, with Fujitsu’s technology reducing the overall complexity of the system and increasing its throughput.
Insights & Opinions
The conventional view of the mobile virtual network operator is out of date. Service providers that buy wholesale minutes at a discount price and sell no-frills telephony and text messaging to price-sensitive customers are finding it hard to survive.
Overcoming Separation Anxiety
Fujitsu's Graeme Wright argues business leaders must plan more effectively when engaging in divestment activity. Critically, he says, they must involve their CIOs from the very outset of discussions if they are to navigate the IT, cultural and strategic challenges of any separation successfully. He illustrates the benefits and opportunities this could bring, as well as warning of the potentially ruinous consequence of neglecting IT and people issues.
