BRIEF: Verizon to expand 4-G network [Ruidoso News, N.M.]

(Ruidoso News (NM) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Feb. 06--The recent upgrade to Verizon Wireless' 4G network in the Ruidoso area was touted earlier this month by the wireless communications provider as a part of 2012 technology solutions that helped millions more Americans access preventative healthcare and made one of the largest recyclers in the nation more efficient.

"Our technology and networks help to make people stronger by delivering powerful solutions for consumers and businesses," said Andres Irlando, region president for Verizon.

Verizon Wireless invested more than $75 million in New Mexico and El Paso, Texas during 2012 to provide new wireless services, expanding network coverage and capacity for customers. Verizon's network investment in New Mexico and El Paso now totals more than $625 million since 2000.

Verizon first launched its 4G LTE network in metro Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Las Cruces and El Paso in 2011. As part of its 2012 network investment, the 4G network was expanded to include Alamogordo, Ruidoso and a half dozen other New Mexico communities. By the end of this year, Verizon plans to see its 4G footprint completely cover the areas served today by its 3G network.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
