High-speed network

Glossary Page

Also referred to as high-performance and ultra-high-performance networks, these are networks capable of delivering the required speed for comfortable and quality-assured utilization of services with demanding bandwidth requirements, regardless of the number of users. They are also designed to provide stable symmetric up and download rates in the future. While there is no standardized definition, bandwidths starting from 50 Mbps are generally mentioned. The service-related functionalities of these networks are independent of the underlying transmission technologies. Furthermore, they support general mobility by enabling consistent service provisioning for users everywhere.
