Vivacom increases 3G network speed to 42Mbps

Feb 08, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Vivacom, a telecommunication services provider, has announced that its 3G network has increased its maximum speed by 50% for downloading data and it now provides speed of 42Mbps for 22% of Bulgaria's population.

It is expected that by the end of the first quarter it will cover the top 10 cities in the country and the main Bulgarian resorts. Until now the network had the capability of 21Mbps for download and 5.74Mbps for upload, the company said.

Currently the telecom's 3G network covers 99.41% of the population and 95.95% of the country, its main advantage is the assured connection of at least 100Mbps to all 3G-telecom base stations. This gives Vivacom the capacity to maintain high speeds of mobile Internet, without being restricted to large cities or high number of users using the network simultaneously, the company added.

The new higher speeds will allow significantly faster obtaining of data directly to the end user and will be particularly useful for sending and receiving large files and for users who want to watch video in high definition via mobile devices. They will be available to all customers using tariff plans for data Traffic Unlimited M, L and XL, as well as packages with unlimited mobile Internet + Data Unlimited M, L and XL with voice SIM cards, the company concluded.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
