Strategic Network Areas


The Access project groups are creating innovative infrastructure solutions, technologies, and methodologies to bring more people internet access across all corners of the globe. Access is focused on removing some of the key blockers that make the connection to the end user difficult.


To keep the pace of exponential growth in network traffic, better backhaul is essential. Our Backhaul project groups are addressing the scalability, fast convergence, ease of configuration and extensibility challenges in wireless and wired backhaul.

Core and Management

The most significant costs associated with a network are the ongoing costs of operations and maintenance. The Core and Management project groups are simplifying the core network architecture and improving efficiency and flexibility while reducing capex and opex costs associated with keeping a network up and running.
