June 19th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

A subsea project, some AI network work, and some 5G xHaul interoperability:

Padtec says its gear will be getting a subsea workout down along the coast of Brazil. Global Fiber has chosen Padtec and Satelital as primary suppliers for a new festoon network. The cable system will connect Forteleza with Belém, following the northern coast of Brazil to the state of Pará. From Fortaleza, of course, it will be able to connect to a wealth of subsea cables not just south to Sao Paulo, but across the ocean to North America, Europe, and Africa.

Aryaka is taking aim at supporting AI workloads. They have introduced the Aryaka AI>TM Perform solution, which tunes their network acceleration capabilities to support businesses that are looking to leverage GEN AI applications but need their SASE networks to be ready for the challenge. Aryaka has additional AI-focused capabilities in the pipeline in anticipation of growing demand for connecting LLMs with existing infrastructure securely and reliability.

Infinera, DZS, and Calnex have been busy demonstrating 5G mobile broadband xHaul. The multi-vendor project used coherent open XR optics in a point-to-multipoint optical configuration. The demo was hosted by TIM in Torino at the European Open Test & Integration Center. Infinera supplied its coherent pluggables, DZS supplied its Saber 2200, and Calnex supplied its Paragon-NEO.
