The shift from a supply-led to a demand-led model is challenging the role of the network equipment provider, shifting focus to QoE outcomes.

Announcing the Overture ∆Q testbed

Just as a new aircraft is tested in a wind tunnel, any new application needs to have its performance limits discovered in a network emulation testbed.

The 5 steps to scientific network management
