Emulex has launched the new OneConnect OCe14000 family of 10GbE and 40GbE Network Adapters and 10GbE Converged Network Adapters (CNAs). They enable higher virtual machine (VM) densities, and support secure hybrid clouds with virtual network fabrics. The RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) low latency architecture delivers application acceleration and provides an open application performance interface (API) that integrates with next generation software-defined networking (SDN) solutions.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
