SD-WAN

 

SD-WAN is an acronym for software-defined networking in a wide area network (WAN). SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling the networking hardware from its control mechanism. This concept is similar to how software-defined networking implements virtualization technology to improve data center management and operation.

 

A key application of SD-WAN is to allow companies to build higher-performance WANs using lower-cost and commercially available Internet access, enabling businesses to partially or wholly replace more expensive private WAN connection technologies such as MPLS.

Optic Fibre

 

Fiber-optic communication is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of infrared light through an optical fiber. The light is a form of carrier wave that is modulated to carry information. Fiber is preferred over electrical cabling when high bandwidth, long-distance, or immunity to electromagnetic interference is required. This type of communication can transmit voice, video, and telemetry through local area networks or across long distances.

 

Optical fiber is used by many telecommunications companies to transmit telephone signals, Internet communication, and cable television signals. Researchers at Bell Labs have reached internet speeds of over 100 petabits × kilometer per second using fiber-optic communication.

NBN

 

What is NBN access network?

Australia’s broadband access network. Find out how we’re building the infrastructure that will be used by phone and internet providers to connect you to an nbn™ powered plan. Speed options

 

How does the NBN network work?

 

The nbn™ works using islands of fibre connectivity to deliver the majority of its data. The bulk of the system relies on fibre connections defined as Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) … Fibre to the node (FTTN)

 

Do all NBN providers use the same network?

 

Although every NBN company runs off the same network, there are plenty of differences. When you’re searching for an NBN plan, you should make sure that you’re getting everything you want from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) – which involves deciding on what perks and bundles you want with your plan
