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!

TMC’s (News - Alert) Paula Bernier digs deeper into the matter HERE.
Artificial intelligence has a wide range of applications and use cases. Traditional telcos have the most to gain from leveraging AI. Intelligent, adaptive networking offers the performance required in the digital age. Explore the subject more HERE.
Ciena says WaveLogic Ai is the only 400G-capable solution being deployed today. And deployments for this offering have ramped three times faster than 100G did. An impressive list of network operators including Telstra, Vodafone (News - Alert), and many others have implemented WaveLogic Ai to get more capacity of our their optical networks. This technology allows network operators to multiply the capacity of their wavelengths – regardless of distance. This tunable capability is possible due in part to network programmability. All the details are HERE.
Hawaiki Submarine Cable LP announced the selection of Ciena’s Geomesh Extreme solution to provide exceptional connectivity capability among the United States, Australia, New Zealand as well as the Pacific Islands. Complete coverage is HERE.
Windstream Enterprise (News - Alert) announced its SD-WAN service has achieved PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) 3.2 Compliance.
