The Move to IP: Getting Practical

The transition to IP-based signal transport continues to gain speed, especially with the introduction of ST-2110 last year. But there is still much to be done, and learned, as manufacturers build out their IP-based products and their customers put them to use. Experts in IP-based systems discuss where we stand on the road to IP, where the challenges are, and what steps the industry will take in 2019 to make the move to IP easier than ever.
