VIAVI Introduces Fusion JMEP 10 Smart SFP+ Gigabit Ethernet transceiver VIAVI Solutions today introduced Fusion JMEP 10, a smart, small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) Gigabit Ethernet transceiver for network test, turn-up and performance monitoring up to 10 GbE. Part of the VIAVI NITRO lifecycle management platform, the Fusion JMEP 10 addresses the emergence of 10 GbE as the dominant Ethernet bandwidth being used for applications like 5G xHaul, Business Ethernet Services, Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) for Cable or GPON/ XGSPON for Fiber Access Networks. The past year has seen a global reordering of network traffic patterns, and service providers are responding by accelerating their technology evolution, relying on distributed architectures with significantly larger links. For example, 5G requires 10 GbE to the tower compared to 1 GbE for 3G or 4G. Cable networks require 10 GbE links that connect to remote-PHY devices at the edge. Traffic growth and complexity are further driving adoption of virtualized test and monitoring solutions. By actively monitoring and analyzing key performance indicators (KPIs) virtually, operators can maximize network performance and ensure the best possible customer experience, even as they accommodate exponential traffic growth.
Global Korean gifting platform – Giftiicon enters the Indian market with casual gifting app Giftiicon has launched in India with a new app specifically designed for the Indian market.
