Physical Telecommunications Infrastructure: Its Evolution and Challenges

May, 28th, 2021

The telecommunications infrastructure is the set of technical means and facilities that allow the development of telecommunications services. It is essential for the development and consolidation of the Digital Ecosystem, on which we are increasingly dependent due to its link with the optimization of processes, both in organizational environments and in the private sphere. It is made up of connections that range from international links to user access networks. The most common technologies used are fiber optics, microwaves, satellite links, wired or wireless fixed accesses and mobile accesses.

In recent years, connectivity facilities have grown from anywhere in the world with a growing demand for content, in quantity and quality, especially high definition video, this constitutes a great challenge facing telecommunications networks. The accelerated development of electronics, with a high degree of minimization of components, is marking the availability of a wide variety of devices, portable and fixed, that allow viewing content of ever greater resolution. The trend towards what we call the Internet of Things (IoT) joins this demand, and in the future, in addition, augmented reality and virtual reality can further increase the current needs of bandwidth in the networks.

Together, these elements have motivated the emergence of New Generation Networks, NGN for its acronym in English, and are the main factors that have driven the need to develop and deploy fifth generation (5G) mobile networks.

In the current environment, the challenges are increasingly growing, with an exponential growth in the demand for network resources being evident, exacerbated by the also vertiginous development of applications and software, which must be maintained in the coming years. In this sense, the Software Defined Networks,

SDN for its acronym in English, gain more notoriety in their use and development. The use of this alternative provides, among other advantages, agility and flexibility, since it allows communications companies to deploy applications, services and infrastructures to achieve the objectives demanded by customers in the shortest possible time, without affecting quality.

In order to promote the development of the Digital Society, it is important to have access networks that guarantee the demands of the applications and services that are being implemented in very diverse environments. The current protagonists are access networks with 5G technology. The use of this technology allows the connection points to be expanded exponentially, to more and more devices. For the management of this large number of users and their satisfaction, in addition to the existence of data centers, a large number of antennas will also be required.

But we cannot think that everything is based on wireless or mobility connection requirements, there are also fixed applications and services, in home and business environments, that require high capacities in data flows and low latencies, for their correct operation. The most suitable access network solutions to respond to these needs are those based on fiber optic cables (FO) due to their main physical characteristics: Bandwidth greater than Tbps. Low attenuation by distance Low production costs. Excellent robustness to interference. Not affected by humidity.

The conditions imposed by the incidence of the Covid-19 pandemic in the world, raised challenges for communications companies, which have become changes and opportunities. Telecommunications quickly became a vital and indispensable tool in supporting the mobility of economies. This implied that new solutions for telecommunications infrastructures emerged as a necessity, to support new technologies and applications. The areas that benefited the most from these changes were health and education, among others.

Most of the telecommunications companies in the world have opted to implement more and more, the FTTx (Fiber to the X) networks, being FTTH (Home), FTTC (Corner), FTTB (Building) and FTTA (Apartment). Undoubtedly, this deployment obeys the aforementioned aspects and amplified in times of pandemic. Access to quality telecommunications services from home is increasingly a requirement to maintain the standards required to maintain “home offices”, a modality that arrived and is predicted to remain, due to the advantages that it has provided. evidenced for companies, highlighting even greater and better results linked to employee flexibilities, which have led to greater productivity in the positions that can be used in this modality. As much as wireless networks evolve and there is a significant deployment of mobile networks, with data handling possibilities with high quality standards, in the end all this data ends up passing through a fiber optic network. The radioelectric spectrum is limited, it is not a resource with high availability, we can have areas covered wirelessly, but by concentrating high levels of service demands, they sacrifice quality to be able to give access to all users, even excess traffic can lead to collapse. Therefore, it is advisable to bring access as close to the end user as does not jeopardize the quality or stability of the service.

Access networks are part of the telecommunications infrastructure, their implementation with physical connections implies higher costs and efforts than wireless connections, but it has trade-offs that allow a safe return on investment in relatively short terms. The deployment of both solutions must go hand in hand, one does not deny the other, we can deploy wireless solutions ensuring that they are supported by sufficient physical connections to guarantee the quality and security expected by customers.

In our country, the communications policy pursues a sustainable development of the number of broadband accesses in the coming years. The accelerated deployment of mobile accesses is encouraged and in turn contemplates the growth of fixed access networks, with the use of fiber optics. The Cuban Society for Telecommunications, Cubatel S.A. has established alliances with the Cuban Telecommunications Company, ETECSA, to jointly carry out the deployment of telecommunications infrastructure that is required to achieve the computerization goals of Cuban society, established in the country's

Strategic Plan until 2030. From the management point of view, for the company Cubatel S.A., in addition to constituting a commitment, it is a great challenge. It implies a redesign of its structure to be able to face the magnitude of the market that lies ahead. Its experience and prestige acquired in more than 25 years since it was founded, make it possessor of organizational values, which will allow it to identify and implement the necessary adjustments without trauma for the organization, taking into account the parameters of division of labor and its coordination, with a adequate observance of the five mechanisms to carry it out successfully and maintain coherence between the components of the company.

ICT ... that fascinating universe that shows us closeness, often being at great distances. This is how many people value the world of interconnections, interactions, interrelationships, which is what lies behind information and communication technologies.

Since we were little, human beings are used to the various uses that man-made devices have, such as telephones. Ah !! But how interesting to learn more about the possibilities offered by these technologies, which have been on the rise in the last 40 years.

Boys and girls, from their small universe, have dreams, aspirations, interact, play assuming professional roles, sometimes predestined for gender reasons ... So, how interesting it can be that girls are more linked to professions such as telecommunications, automatic , electronics, just to name a few in which the percentage of men is still higher. Encouraging today's girls to be interested in these activities is invaluable, since it will provide society with women with greater economic independence - given the remuneration of these types of jobs compared to others-; Women will not be limited in terms of the development of their talent and it will promote a greater presence of these in the labor market, among other reasons that could be pointed out.

Showing girls the wonderful world of ICT is the way to have more empowered women in different societies.

April, 13th, 2021

We workers are aware that we are facing a complex and challenging scenario, characterized by the criminal, unjustified and inhumane economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed unilaterally by the United States Government, intensified with the implementation of more than 240 new measures, to what is added the effects of a global pandemic. Both have impacted on a high contraction of the economy and the consequent shortage of the domestic market, which has caused the rise in prices and a decrease in the purchasing power of wages, as well as the paralysis or intermittence of the production processes of the campus industrial, generating a slowdown in our development programs.

On this occasion, the May Day commemoration will take place virtually, presided over by the slogan "United: We do Cuba." Its main protagonists are the workers' collectives and the communities, where the deployment of creativity and multiple popular initiatives will reflect the joy, responsibility and commitment of the union movement, together with the workers, in the decisive battle to advance our economy, and the efficiency that is demanded of it, directing the priority to the increase of food production.
