Through the integration of optical transport network (OTN) technology and the SDN architecture, ZTE s SDON controller provides open support to upper-level multi-domain controller/service orchestrator and applications, while simultaneously offering centralized control of hierarchical network interoperability.
Central to this lie a series of patented and patent-pending technologies namely; Altobridge Data-at-the-Edge (intelligent mobile broadband data optimization and delivery across wireless networks), Hierarchical Network Caching, meshed cache, Self-Learning Content Prepositioning, Local Connectivity (local voice switching) and Split Architecture(transmission and power optimization), all of which, drive down communications delivery costs for mobile network operators by reducing backhaul and power consumption costs.
Among the topics are phase transitions in single neurons and neural populations, how hierarchical networks prevent the transition to the epileptic state, inducing transition in mesoscopic brain dynamics, a continuum model for the dynamics of the phase transition from slow-wave sleep to REM sleep, and what a mean-field model reveals about the dynamics of the cortex.
