Paper Presentation & Seminar Topics: Next-Generation Network

Next-Generation Network

Abstract:(seminar)The next-generation network seamlessly blends the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and the public switched data network (PSDN), creating a single multiservice network. Rather than large,centralized, proprietary switch infrastructures, this next-generation architecture pushes central-office (CO) functionality to the edge of the network. The result is a distributed network infrastructure that leverages new, open technologies to reduce the cost of market entry dramatically, increase flexibility, and accommodate both circuit-switched voice and packet-switched data.OVERVIEW:This tutorial explains the evolution of the next-generation switching architecture and highlights the superior features of this emerging technology.
