The rapid gains in data center efficiency, the emergence of mega data centers and the impact of cloud computing, as well as the virtualization of data center architecture and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) mean that large enterprises need to consider new approaches to meet current and future data center interconnect (DCI) needs. Alcatel-Lucent provides a wide choice of DCI solutions that help large enterprises de-risk the provisioning of data center interconnect. These include high performance, low latency, secure optical WDM solutions for synchronous applications to IP/MPLS solutions that provide high performance, multi-site DCI with advanced QoS and traffic engineering for asynchronous applications. Alcatel-Lucent DCI solutions are used by many large enterprises in the financial, healthcare, consumer and industrial segments for business and mission-critical applications. Alcatel-Lucent is also at the forefront of data center network virtualization with SDN solutions that deliver unrestricted data center networking while enabling SDN extension across the WAN — greatly simplifying operations, reducing costs and increasing agility.

Reflecting on a year of partnership to advance data for racial justice

Article | July 6, 2021

One year ago, Tableau Foundation launched our Racial Justice Data Initiative out of a core belief that data can and should play a transformative role in the fight for racial equity and justice in the United States. We have forged new partnerships and deepened existing relationships with organizations committed to using data to raise awareness of inequities, point to solutions, and advocate for progress. Just today, we announced two new partnerships that will deepen our commitment to advancing racial equity in the Southern US with—Southern Economic Advancement Project (SEAP) and Fair Count. We believe that data can be a powerful resource in both identifying the experiences and challenges of people whose voices we may not normally hear and help create the necessary programs, policies, and resources needed to ensure these same people are not left behind

Cisco issues urgent fixes for SD-WAN router flaws

Article | March 23, 2020

Cisco has patched a clutch of high-priority vulnerabilities in its SD-WAN routers and their management software that admins will want to apply as soon as possible. SD-WAN is a technology that allows large companies to manage different types of Wide Area Network (WAN) communications links such as carrier MPLS, conventional broadband, and mobile 4G as a single virtual entity. Making SD-WAN work requires specific routers that support it, spread out across the WAN, as well as management software to interact with this infrastructure. It is this software that is vulnerable. There are five CVEs in total, three of which are rated high, including one, CVE-2020-3266, given a CVSS severity score of 7.8. The latter is a privilege escalation vulnerability in the SD-WAN management software used with a range of Cisco routers, including the vEdge 100 Series, 1000 Series, 2000 Series, 5000 Series, and Cloud Router.

Keeping Innovation RuralStar Pro, Connecting the Unconnected

Article | July 1, 2021

According to the GSMA 2020 report, 600 million people do not have mobile network coverage and 3.4 billion people do not have mobile Internet access.
