Friday Bytes: Lumen, DZS, KLF Italia, AT&T

August 20th, 2021 by · 1 Comment

Three bits of interesting infrastructure news to finish your Friday with:

Lumen is taking its private cloud capabilities out to the edge. They are merging the VMware-based enterprise offering with the company's extensive edge computing reach, which aims to hit 95% of the US population with 5ms latency or less. The idea is to offer enterprises the automated turnup of pre-built computing resources closer to eyeballs across Lumen's footprint. Lumen's Edge Private Cloud is also available to 2,200 third party data centers around the world.

DZS is teaming up with KLF Italia to serve the hospitality industry in the Mediterranean basin. The vendor and the systems integrator are working together to offer fiber-based connectivity to 30+ high profile locations in and around Italy and Croatia. Properties include Club Med Cefalù Sicily and the Hotel Excelsior Venice Lido Resort, which is where the Venice Film Festival is held.

And AT&T will be working with GM to bring 5G to millions of GM vehicles over the next decade. They are collaborating on a 5G core network targeting roadway-centric coverage, faster navigation/mapping services, faster music and video, and faster software updates. The work will even increase speeds for existing vehicles from 2019 via 4G LTE. Like all the major mobile carriers, AT&T is busy rolling out infrastructure for 5G nationwide, and connected vehicles are certainly a part of those plans.

    Too bad peering is a foreign concept to Lumen.
