    In June, AMD reentered the data center with a new SoC, demonstrating new record SPECint scores. AMD’s EPYC scored 18% higher than the prior record holder, Intel’s E7 8894 v4 . At the launch event in Austin, Texas, over a dozen server designs were shown from eight server OEMs, including HPE, Dell EMC, and Supermicro. AMD also revealed that Microsoft and Baidu lead the list of first adopters. With a high core count, well suited for virtualization and data analytics workloads, high I/O allowing a direct link to coprocessors, and a competitive price at less than half of Intel’s E7-8890 v4, AMD seems set to take market share in the data center.

    Today Mitel announced its intent to acquire ShoreTel, which does not come as a big surprise. Over the past several years this combination has been rumored multiple times, and ShoreTel’s board has publicly been looking at strategic options for the company. The enterprise communications market is extremely tough with premises-based sales in decline and the majority of sales in the hands of only a few dominant vendors. Meanwhile businesses are shifting to cloud services, which is a very crowded market with a number of providers and no dominant company. Mitel and ShoreTel are among the few that have a position in the legacy PBX market while working on pivoting to cloud services. Clients, please log in to access the full content.

    Last month, at 5G World in London (June 13-15), I chaired the Antenna Evolution Focus Day, which turned out to be extremely well attended with more than 100 people, mostly mobile operators representatives, and nobody was shy. Instead, much food for thought was brought to the discussion by speakers from 3UK, BT/EE, Bell Canada, China Mobile, Elisa, KT, Orange, Telekom Slovenije, TIM (Telecom Italia Mobile), T-Mobile, and Vodafone. Since everybody is operating an LTE-Advanced network with various levels of carrier aggregation, adding new antennas to achieve massive MIMO (Multiple Inputs Multiple Outputs) was the core of the discussion.
