There are few people whom we meet and connect instantly. Recently, We met Subrata Sen, (Head, Fiber/Transport Planning at Bharti Infratel Ltd) and veteran in telecom industry during a conference. During our conversation, we had long discussion about upcoming technologies and how important the backhaul , specially fiber is for future network.
For example, if we wish to move our telco infrastructure to Cloud, virtualize our network elements, do we have the capability to move all data traffic to centralized cloud? Mr. Sen provided his expert opinion on how the transport network needs to be redesigned and what are important parameters for the same.
