Digital Transformation is steering development in a decidedly software defined direction, as rigid architectures of the past are giving way to agile, on-demand and automated deployments and services driving industry into a new era. A shining example of some of today's innovation is in Web-scale networking. With the weekend upon us, there's no better time than the present to take a look at the week that was in Web-scale networking: Time for the Week in Review!
Automation is here today. It will only see increased adoption going forward in service provider networks. In fact, automation is now a business imperative. That’s the word from Tim Doiron of ACG Research, who recently conducted an automation in networking survey on behalf of Ciena. Find full insight and analysis HERE.
Network solutions suppliers and technology journalists like to spend a lot of time talking about what’s next. So when a technology is already well established, we often move on to focus on the newer and more exciting things. But businesses have real problems to solve and limited budgets. They want to innovate. But they also like proven solutions that address their needs today as well as into the future. Ethernet services can do all of the above. Everything you need to know is HERE.
Ciena is driving change with a robust portfolio of adaptive networking solutions, and this week is elevating the Blue Planet intelligent automation platform with the announcement of a definitive agreement to acquire Packet Design (News - Alert). The Packet Design purchase pairs network performance software with an already comprehensive portfolio. All the details are HERE.
Transoceanic communications has been around a long time. And many of the subsea cables down there have been in service 10 or more years. But installing subsea cables obviously is not easy or inexpensive. So the organizations that own these important assets want them to last as long as possible. And technological advances have extended their life span again and again. TMC’s Paula Bernier (News - Alert) delves more deeply into the matter HERE.
Remember to stop by early and often for your fill of things Web-scale networking! See you
