“Cable companies are facing a perfect storm of business and technical disruptions including gigabit pressure, regulatory encroachment, and a groundswell of community broadband competition, many of which directly impact their access network,” said Greg Whelan, principal of Greywale Insights. “Cable companies need a graceful migration strategy to fiber architectures such as GPON. This migration must be simple and address the entire end-to-end service delivery architecture including the installed base of management systems and customer premise devices, as well as the realities literally on the ground, or in the outside plant.”

“Communities around the globe – from dense urban to sparse rural and everywhere in between – have determined that affordable high-speed broadband is no longer a nicety, but a requirement for economic prosperity and quality of life,” said Greg Whelan, Principal, Greywale Insights. “Deploying fiber rich Gigabit broadband is the logical way to go. It gives the network operator great flexibility to serve business and residences with a range of cost-effective options. We know that when broadband rates increase the global innovation engine creates new compelling applications that drive economic development and improve our lives.”

Greg Whelan, Principal Analyst at Grewywale Insights said

“Mobile app performance is critical as consumers have little tolerance for sluggishness,” said Greg Whelan of Greywale Insights. “Poor app performance directly impacts business success. CDN’s help but the last 50 miles is best effort. There’s huge variability of network performance particularly over the last 5 miles in both location and time. Solutions that elegantly improve app performance and are transparent to the mobile network operator solve a real business problem for the app provider.” (Full Release)


January 15, 2015:  Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs updates interactive energy consumption tool to measure impact of NFV, SDN and high-bandwidth services

Greg Whelan, Principal Analyst at Greywale Insights said: “It really is a question of when not if energy issues will impact carriers’ bottom line.   A linear correlation between traffic growth and OPEX can’t continue.  Adding an energy strategy to the mix is the prudent thing to do.  Alcatel Lucent is clearly taking the lead to address these tough issues.  Their work at Bell Labs and through GreenTouch™ is setting the agenda for energy aware network architectures.”
