Topic: Where’s the Bandwidth?
It is 2014 and the public/best effort networks are as choked as they’ve ever been. With more and more content moving to these backbones, it does not appear there is an end in sight to contention, bottlenecks and choke-points, particularly during events and activities that require scale.
Also, as powerful as optical technology may be, high quality private networks are sometimes challenged to provide a high QOS, particularly during the myriad of failures that seem to happen on these networks far too often, when restoration and protection need to happen almost instantaneously. Instead, choke points on portions of these networks make recovery for high-quality service a challenging proposition.
The satellite supply chain provides great reach but has always had its bandwidth challenges and is looking at high orders of frequency re-use and spot beam technology to optimize bandwidth in the future. Is it too little, too late?
