IP video can place a high demand on network infrastructures, especially as the number of on-demand services and high-definition subscribers grows over a large geographical area. Ensuring the best user experience requires a network infrastructure that flexibly adapts to changing subscriber demands. As bandwidth demand increases, fiber is pushed out to the network edge toward the subscribers. This allows adequate capacity for growth in consumer video applications, as well as enterprise services, wholesale services and network infrastructure consolidations.
