The Open Networking Foundation, an SDN advocacy organization, today announced it's opening its conformance testing program to non-members. The change should make it easier for carriers to find OpenFlow-compliant hardware and software, as well as making it easier for conformance testing labs to make money.
Recent product announcements prove the NVMe (NVM Express) revolution is underway and is expected to continue with a wave of new products hitting the market in the coming months. Through its NVMe Testing Consortium, the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) gives subsystem vendors, silicon vendors, IP companies and enterprise storage companies an early, competitive advantage to test and prepare their NVMe products for market prior to the widespread introduction of NVMe SSDs.
The telephone industry wasn't kidding when it named the newest version of its digital subscriber line (DSL) technology G.fast. Indeed, it's fast in two ways: The speed at which it delivers data over copper and the timeline the telephone industry is employing to bring it to market.
LEXINGTON, Massachusetts (November 1, 2014) - WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study G.fast Chips: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014 to 2020. The 2014 study has 256 pages, 109 tables and figures. Worldwide G.fast Chip markets are increasingly diversified, poised to achieve significant growth as broadband is used in every industry segment.
Non-volatile flash memory (NVMe) has been used to increase the performance of high-end servers for years, notably pioneered by Fusion IO. Today, NVMe is becoming the preferred technology for flash storage and the all-flash datacenter. As NVMe adoption increases, other elements of usability will allow this technology to increase its reach beyond the datacenter, including its use as a boot device.
At least two North American service providers are very interested in using G.fast technology to dramatically boost the bandwidth that can be delivered over existing copper pair phone wiring, according to a source who should have a good handle on this - Lincoln Lavoie, senior engineer for the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab oratory, which has been selected by the Broadband Forum to certify G.fast equipment.
While cable's DOCSIS 3.1 platform looks to extend the life of HFC networks, an emerging technology called G.fast aims to perform a similar trick for DSL for the telcos as they look for ways to squeeze more speed out of their widely deployed copper-based networks.
Durham, N.H. -- The Broadband Forum has announced the selection of the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab (UNH-IOL) as the official test lab for the latest upcoming iteration of DSL, known as G.fast. The UNH-IOL is currently the only official test site for G.fast products.
