    The pace of innovation enabled by open networking ecosystems (switches, silicon, and software), which started with disaggregation of switch hardware and Operating System (OS), is set to accelerate with the availability of programmable data plane silicon. The networking industry is again borrowing from the compute world with the advent of network forwarding plane silicon architected as a general purpose CPU, where the actions taken are driven by a sequence of instructions; yet, rather than executing arithmetic and logic instructions, the programmable silicon is executing packet handling instructions.

    Austin, Texas (February 7, 2017) – Today, Vertiv, previously Emerson Network Power, announced the release of lithium-ion batteries for its three-phase UPS range in North America. As the current top supplier of three-phase UPS in North America, and the second major supplier to introduce lithium-ion batteries in this product range (the first being Schneider Electric), UPS applications appear to be revving up for an energy storage revolution. Despite the benefits lithium-ion batteries offer, including saving space and weighing less, reducing total cost of ownership (TCO), and easing maintenance, adoption will still prove challenging as safety concerns and a conservative industry will be hesitant to adopt.

    In 3G, mobile core was very bulky and complicated. When designing LTE, the 3GPP tackled the complexity by collapsing several functions and simplifying the overall architecture that was renamed evolved packet core (EPC). It was actually Starent Networks, acquired by Cisco in 2009, that pioneered the design of a purpose-built packet core platform from scratch involving more and more software rather than repurposing existing router components to make a GPRS gateway support node (GGSN), paving the way for what is now compact EPC mainstream.
