—The multiwavelength optical networking (MONET) consortium has demonstrated national-scale optical networking in a multilocation testbed in New Jersey. The demonstration involves transparent optical connections over path lengths as long as 2290 km, through several network elements (NE's) controlled by two interoperating network control and management (NC&M)(More)
The past several years upgrading the cable networks to support next generation end-user services, multiple system operators (MSOs) are looking for new ways to generate incremental revenue while reducing subscriber churn. It is widely believed that the so-called "triple play " of voice, video, and data services will help the MSOs to achieve these goals.(More)
This paper describes the results of an analysis conducted to quantify and determine how applications/services deployed using an IMS infrastructure can reduce operations costs and improve "time to market (TTM)". A detailed task-based operations cost model was developed for comparing IMS-based solutions with point solutions. The model used the following:(More)
