Skype had an average of 124 million connected users per month in the second quarter of 2010. People spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook. According to Cisco VNI, the global mobile data traffic will increase 26-fold between 2010 and 2015, reaching 6.3 exabytes per month by 2015.

To handle all this data and signaling, network and service provider need to adapt their networks. Using the existent fiber-optic links more effectively seems to be the most economical approach. Increasing the spectral efficiency will therefore play a major role in the future.

This web seminar proposes some ways how to face these challenges from the test and measurement perspective. Additionally some time will be spent on highlighting the latest developments in the test instrumentation area.

Who should attend?

Engineers in manufacturing, R&D and education who are working on generation communication networks for the upcoming Terabit Era.
