Rethinking Network Architecture with Routed Optical Networking

Building the internet of the future is no small task and we need the right people to help make this happen.

Why Innovation Is Key To Connecting The Next 3 Billion

It is incredibly challenging to provide high-speed connectivity in rural areas. Service providers need to innovate and go beyond the traditional network deployment models to provide broadband connectivity in difficult-to-reach areas. Open RAN provides a paradigm shift beyond traditional network deployment and will help connect the remaining half of the world's population.

The Internet for the Future: Simple, Flexible, and Affordable

The legacy architecture has multiple layers that have created not only architectural silos. There is an opportunity to simplify this complex and redundant three-layer architecture. Rakuten Mobile takes this approach to use Segment Routing over IPv6 (SRv6) and Cisco Routed Optical Networking to add operational flexibility, enhance profitability, and improve time-to-market. The service provider would be using this to bring newer opportunities, including 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) offerings, to its enterprise customers.
