Vodafone has successfully completed a live network trial in Spain as part of its work with the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), using the Voyager optical ‘white box.’
The goal of the live trial was to showcase the future of applying a disaggregated model to optical networks and to provide more flexibility to handle the real time dynamics using Voyager, combined with a software-defined network (SDN) controller.
The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) took to the podium at this year’s NGON and DCI Europe conference in Nice to reveal the results of its 2018 Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Transport Application Programming Interface (T-API) multi-vendor interoperability demonstration.
LightCounting has released its June 2018 Quarterly Market Update Report. Amongst the key findings, the specialist market research company cites ZTE as ‘an early casualty of the unfolding trade war’ and warns that some sales will be impacted in Q2 of 2018.
Now available from ADVA is the ConnectGuard cloud software, which is designed to deliver virtualised encryption in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Based on the company’s Ensemble Connector, ConnectGuard cloud features military-grade encryption and zero touch provisioning capabilities to allow customers to roll out secure cloud connectivity to thousands of endpoints within minutes. The company says that ConnectGuard Cloud has been specifically engineered for this task.
