Thursday Roundup: Ciena, Avelacom, DataBank

April 23rd, 2020 by · Leave a Comment

The lockdown continues, but so does the news.  Next week we start learning the bad news about quarterly earnings across the sector.  Here are a few quick takes:

Ciena's Blue Planet is contributing some new code to the Linux Foundation's Open Networking Automation Platform Policy Framework. The additional functionality is aimed at giving service providers who use ONAP more flexibility in administering intent-based policies. In parallel, they are componentizing additional capabilities within the Blue Planet platform so that they can be leveraged with ONAP. An unnamed major service provider was also involved in the code contribution.

Avelacom has won a new financial platform over to its low latency network. ZUBR, which specializes in crypto derivatives, will be using those links across major cryptocurrency markets in Europe and APAC. The platform's clients need low latency connections both to crypto exchanges and of course the major cloud providers. ZUBR just launched this spring.

And DataBank is deploying software from MOPstar as part of an effort to streamline its operations. The solution will standardize method of procedure and daily maintenance across DataBank's data center footprint and eliminate manual and paper-based steps with a centralized, digital approach. The roll-out will kick off in Indianapolis, Kansas City, and Salt Lake City, followed by 20 more locations in 9 markets by the end of the quarter.
