Relying on the laws of quantum mechanics, transmission is carried by a single particle that can only be measured one time, making encryption and decryption difficult to compromise. Businesses are evaluating architectural solutions using Quantum Cryptography to understand its potential benefits. Future implementations of the technology may soon make it more available for enterprise business.
One of the greatest challenges to any advanced wireless operation is the maintenance of continuous and economical service. Today’s networks have evolved into business-critical services that organizations rely upon every day. However, unplanned remote site downtime due to equipment and power failure, and adverse environmental conditions can severely impair network service.
Today’s service providers face more pressure than ever to keep remote equipment up and running as customers continue to demand higher levels of reliable service while keeping costs competitive. Thus, there is a growing need for remote site management solutions that can help service providers monitor, access and control telecom equipment located at customer sites.
