Transforming Network Infrastructure Week in Review: Machine Learning, Ethernet, Linux Foundation & More


March 24, 2018

Digital transformation has taken hold, driving a new era of innovation in the data center and beyond. Starting with the transformation of network infrastructure and ending with the user experience, change is in the air. With the weekend upon us, there’s no better time than the present to take a look at the week that was in network transformation: Time for the Week in Review!

Ethernet down is integral in the modern networking landscape, and this week the community saw the third in three part series of articles from Napatech’s Claus Ek exploring the past, present and future of this critical technology. This final installment delves into Ethernet flexibility and more HERE.

 This week, the Linux Foundation made public a new hypervisor effort in ACRN, with a focus on the supporting the upcoming IoT onslaught. The small form factor makes embedding in a vehicle possible, and possesses the processing power to prioritize traffic. “As Intel’s strategic partner, Neusoft is pleased to join Intel in project ACRN,” said Meng Lingjun. “ACRN has landed in China’s automotive electronics industry with practical implementation. I believe ACRN can meet the development requirements of IoT technology. We’re pleased to work with open source communities and introduce ACRN into the ecosystem.” Complete insight and analysis is HERE.

In 2014, Gartner’s Joe Skorupa noted “IoT threatens to generate massive amounts of input data from sources that are globally distributed. Transferring the entirety of that data to a single location for processing will not be technically and economically viable,” and today the conversation on data center evolution continues. TMC’s Paula Bernier brings you everything you need to know HERE.

Remember to stop by early and often for all things! See you next week!

Day 4, Cisco Live! - The Wrap

Day 4 was the final day of our first ever Cisco Live! We had a great show, with many great conversations and new connections with existing and potential end users, resellers, partners and job hunters.

Day 3, Cisco Live!

Day 3 of Cisco Live is history! For Fiber Mountain, we continued to enjoy visits from decision makers and influencers who were eager to share their data center and structured cabling challenges.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.

Day 1, Cisco Live!

Fiber Mountain is exhibiting at Cisco Live! In Las Vegas for the first time ever! Our first day was hugely successful from just about any perspective - from quantity and quality of booth visitors to successful meetings with customers.
