Thursday Bytes: Greenlight Networks, Samsung, Vodafone, Netcracker

February 15th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

A bit of FTTH, some nextgen wireless tech, and some cloud marketplace news:

Greenlight Networks is expanding its FTTH plans into two more communities in the Hudson Valley. They will be building out fiber in Mechanicstown and in Circleville, which are parts of Wallkill. Greenlight has partnered with the fire districts in both hamlets, using them to host network hubs. Rochester-based Greenlight first entered Wallkill in 2023, connecting its first homes last summer. They have also been expanding near Buffalo and in the state’s southern tier.

Some high profile names are putting Open RAN technology through its paces. Samsung Electronics and Vodafone announced this week the successful demonstration of an end-to-end call using Open RAN on the latest processors from AMD. The demo was performed in Samsung’s R&D lab in Korea using Samsung’s software, AMD chips, Supermicro servers, and the Wind River CaaS platform. The test exceeded 1Gbps throughput for multi UE.

And Netcracker’s technology will be getting a more intensive workout over in Germany. Bechtle Clouds, a division of Bechtle AG, will be expanding its use of the Netcracker’s revenue management and marketplace platforms in a multi-year contract. Bechtle hopes to bring more cloud vendors on board and thus increase its addressable market into new regions within Europe.
