Here's a quick roundup of vendor news from this week that's worth a look:
Calix announced a key deployment of its Ethernet technology down in Texas. GVTC Communications has deployed their ESAP and ONT on their fiber network in Boerne, Bulverde, and Gonzales just north of San Antonio. That's 2,200 miles of fiber hooking up 39K end users of all types in what GVTC is calling a Gigaregion.
Champion ONE has launched a new 10G DWDM transceiver capable of 40km reach. FiberCloud is an early adopter of the new module, implementing it as part of its cloud services and connectivity environment.
Juniper Networks has one two router deployments in global markets. The academic and research network REANNZ is deploying its first 100Gbps links using Juniper's MX480 edge routers down in New Zealand. They have been seeing traffic growing at nearly 80% annually, and are creating the infrastructure on which to build an SDN-powered network. Meanwhile, Telecom Italia is also deploying those edge routers, with plans for SDN and NFV built on top of them in the works.
Overture Networks added its own ecosystem to the rapidly growing NFV club this week with the launch of 'Harmony'. The initial 10 vendors on board are 6WIND, Aeroflex, Brocade, Dell, EnterpriseWeb, Intel, JDSU, Metaswitch, Qosmos, and Wind River. There are some big names on that list.
