On July 21, 2010 at 2pm ET, Fierce Telecom is hosting a webinar on Packet Optical Network Platforms, a carrier round table discussion. Grant Kirkwood, CTO of PacketExchange will be participating in the discussion. He will present on the fact that today, services are fast becoming packet-based.

There are number of factors driving this transition. One certainly is cost. As traffic grows, revenue growth is slowing – which means that operators must find a more cost-effective way to transport more traffic over its network.

With solutions such as Global Community of Internet Networks (CoINs) and Global Enterprise Private networking, PacketExchange has been able to combine MPLS and metro packet otpimizied platforms to provide an advanced long-haul backbone management. It is this packet-based architecture that will be revealed during the webinar on July 21 at 2pm ET. To tune in, go to: http://www.fiercetelecom.com/offer/packet-optical-webinar-series?source=web
