June 3rd, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Some SASE, an upgrade project, a ULL wireless deployment, and a partnership:

Windstream Enterprise is further enhancing its position within the SD-WAN marketplace. They have unveiled new hardware and features for their VMware-powered SD-WAN offering, adding three new edge devices. The new devices support the company's SASE evolution by increasing integration between SD-WAN and security by leveraging a managed network security VNF.

Ribbon Communications and KGPCo have sold some tech to a member-owned utility provider down in northwestern Alabama. Tombigbee Electric Cooperative will be using Ribbon's IP Optical Transport gear and software and KGPCo's hut locations, routing, fiber, and access systems to upgrade its communications network and enable reaching all customers with FTTH. The utility is leveraging its own rights of way and funding in the form of RDOF and CARES Act grants to make the upgrade happen.

Anova Financial Networks is taking to the airwaves in a big way with a new 10Gbps wireless platform. They have successfully deployed an end-to-end full 10Gbps wireless solution between NY4 in Secaucus and NY11 in Carteret, two key financial data center nodes in New Jersey. The upgrade beats out past inter-exchange systems capacity of 3Gbps or 7Gbps, and Anova can now offer customers dedicated 1Gbps services at ultra-low latency.

And Itential has teamed up with Kaloom for the automation of 5G network slicing. The partnership leverages Kaloom's Cloud Edge Fabric as well as the Itential Automation Platform to orchestrate a range of next generation technologies underlying 5G. They will also be collaborating to enable configuration of IPFS within the mobile core network.
