March Tech Roundup from EPS Global
The modern world runs on microchips. They drive our cars, run our smart homes, and allow us to communicate at lightning speed. 2020 to 2021 has seen a two-sided squeeze on the global chip market as the Covid-19 Global Pandemic accelerated already unprecedented demand and supply was restricted by extreme weather events, trade wars, and a global slowdown. How can service providers maintain access to supply chains while not compromising on security and quality on their networks?

Since the launch of the TIP Open Optical & Packet Transport (OOPT) project group in 2016, it has been very exciting to see how the world’s major service providers, technology suppliers, system integrators and researchers have worked together towards building a more open, flexible and efficient network infrastructure.
EPS are delighted to see our partners VTS and UGrid highlighted here by the Telecom Infra Project.
In this edition Senior Systems Engineer Barry McGinley takes a look at Edgecore Networks Corporation AS7926-40XKFB Open Core Router - powered by Broadcom Inc.'s Jericho2 DNX Silicon and containing Intel Corporation's XEON 8 core CPU.
Every electronic device we interact with today is packed full of semiconductors. Behind the scenes in our cars, phones, laptops and smart appliances is an orchestra of tiny components each with a specific function, coming together to create a symphony. But what exactly is a semiconductor and how exactly do they work? This blog will give you some quick facts about the tiny components running your day-to-day life.
For every tweet, blog post or photo there is a physical manifestation somewhere in the world. These manifestations are data centers.
The carbon footprint of Data Centers and their energy usage has come into sharp focus as climate targets loom and the climate crisis intensifies. How can open networking meet this challenge and bridge this gap?

OpenZR+ is the latest addition to DWDM implementation that spawned from the need to transport data faster and over longer distances in order for service providers to better control their infrastructure capex and opex. In this article we explore the evolution and benefits of DWDM technology and how OpenZR+ can help service providers build efficient, converged IP/optical networks.
IT and OT networks have converged, new technologies have been deployed, and resources remain constrained. Now more than ever, organizations need a strong security strategy to protect and defend their networks against adversaries.
The first step in implementing a new security strategy is improving network visibility. You can’t secure what you can’t see! This blog discuss methods and techniques for improving the overall visibility fabric.
Lanner has just released the NCA-4030 and the NCA-4035, 1U rackmount network security appliances powered by Intel’s Xeon® D-1700 LCC & D-2700 HCC multi-core processors (codenamed Ice Lake D), built on the modern Ice Lake 10nm process.
