Aryaka is doing software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) a little differently from others in this arena that provide overlays. Aryaka has invested in a global private network, which it put together by buying Layer 2 capacity from Tier 1 and Tier 2 service providers.The company today launched its SD-WAN Ultra service, which combines the global private network, WAN optimization, and cloud acceleration. This product is differentiated from overlay technologies in which SD-WAN vendors encourage the use of MPLS along with multiple transport technologies.

Vello Systems

Vello Systems’ disruptive open software solutions represent a completely new design model for the future of application and service delivery for Cloud service providers and their enterprise customers alike. Already in commercial deployment at Global 200 companies and MSPs, Vello’s flagship VellOS OS and Connectivity Exchange software are re-writing the relationship between applications and the underlying networks by allowing the application layer to directly program both inter- and intra-data center links on both merchant Ethernet and merchant Optical switches. Three primary use cases have been deployed to date by Vello’s customers: 1) Application-logic edge routing 2) Virtual cross-connect (creating a single virtual data center that can span continents) and 3) Optical router bypass

How 5G Mobile Networks Will Change IoT Security

Article | February 26, 2020

This technology claims to provide more efficient interconnectivity, and faster data transfers between people, objects and devices. All good things, right? But what security risks does 5G represent for the modern age? Some cybersecurity experts suggest that new vulnerabilities are versions of problems not entirely flushed out from 4G and even 3G networks. This article will attempt to explore some problems and opportunities that IoT security experts need to be aware of, and how savvy enterprises can be proactive about security in the age of 5G.

Strategize to compensate for the leak in core network services revenues

Article | February 26, 2020

There is a fundamental shift in demand for core network services from enterprise customers, away from MPLS and private leased circuits to fixed broadband, Ethernet VPN, and DIA. Omdia forecasts that through 2026, the increase in revenue from fixed broadband, Ethernet VPN and DIA will be insufficient to make up for the decline in revenue from MPLS and private leased circuits.

Demand for compute remains strong in 1Q21

Article | February 26, 2020

Demand for data center compute continues to be strong and we believe 1Q21 would have been even stronger had it not been for the semiconductor supply shortage. We learned from vendors that the flow of server CPUs out of TSMC and Intel’s fabs was steady in 1Q21 but supply of other components necessary to build a server was tight, including power semis, BMC and PCB substrate.

Four reasons why NB-IoT is the enabler of mass IoT apps and tracking

Article | February 26, 2020

Everyone understands the need to track and trace and tracking was one of the first apps that kick-started the M2M industry at scale about two decades ago. It now encompasses everything from routine shipments to monitoring of high value equipment and has even further proved its worth in the pandemic, enabling tracking of essential shipments and cold chain logistics for vaccines. With narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) now rolling out across the world, the technology is powering tracking applications for the mass-market, bringing new capabilities and functions to tracking and opening up new markets and use cases. Four essential attributes of NB-IoT, in addition to the fundamental ability of throughput, were discussed in a recent Quectel webinar
