Despite the move to a set of common communications standards in 4G, the wireless industry continues to be plagued by a multitude of protocols that require creative solutions. With the exponential increase in processing capability, smaller geometries, impressive reductions in power consumption and truly programmable transceiver solutions, a software defined platform (“SDP”) that can address these needs is now available.
What Is Software Defined Platform
SDN is a networking method that employs software-based controllers or application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect with underlying hardware infrastructure and guide network traffic.
This architecture varies from traditional networks, which govern network traffic using specialised hardware devices (such as routers and switches). SDN may use software to establish and operate a virtual network, as well as traditional hardware.
While network virtualization enables organizations to segment different virtual networks within a single physical network or connect devices on different physical networks to form a single virtual network, software-defined networking enables a new method of controlling data packet routing through a centralized server.
Given the availability of these platforms and leveraging on its history of developing innovative PHY solutions in conjunction with industry compliant protocols, GWT Blog is unique in its ability to channel these capabilities into productizing world class competitive solutions for the following product- markets:
- Integrated Backhaul
- Test & Measurement
- Secure Government Communications
- COTS Backhaul solutions
