Capacity Requirements
Revealed:
Right-Size Your Broadband Build

 

Is your middle-mile up to the challenge?

As you aggregate ever-increasing last-mile traffic, it’s critical to build a network that is capable of handling the unprecedented capacity requirements, both tomorrow and for years to come.

Today, the average household requires 13 Mbps, but that will increase to over 20 Mbps in just four short years. When considering per-household usage, the growth brought on by Zoom, streaming video, work from home and cloud gaming simply cannot be overlooked in your network build. And it’s only going up from here.

Has your team future-proofed your network modernization?

Check out our Capacity Requirements whitepaper, a collaborative project between Ciena and ACG Research, to learn more about the pressures your network will be under by the year 2025, and how strategic planning today can help guide your decisions for a network of the future.
