Open Networking – The Future for Service Providers

Open Networking – The Future for Service Providers

In the space of 4 short years the ONF and TIP, along with hardware partners like Edgecore Networks, have altered the service provider hardware industry in aeternum. Their end-to-end, open networking solutions are going to take a large chunk out of a projected 5-year, $490 billion bonanza that traditional vendors like Cisco and Huawei had locked in. Network disaggregation, the pillar of hyperscale datacentres, is now a reality for service providers who are willing to embrace SDN and open hardware to achieve their goals.  Read article

5 Whitebox Products Changing the Face of Carrier Networks

5 Whitebox Products Changing the Face of Carrier Networks

Since 2012, hyperscale data center operators have enjoyed the benefits of the bare metal/whitebox revolution that has taken place in networking. Nearly a quarter of all switches now shipped are bare-metal and that does not include the brite boxes (bare-metal rebranded like HPE and Dell) in that figure. It has become easier to automate, scale, provision our data centers, not to mention the reduced CAPEX and OPEX.

Creating a Modern Campus Area Network: A ‘How to’ Guide

Creating a Modern Campus Area Network: A ‘How to’ Guide

Without question, Open Networking and SDN have altered the landscape of data center networks irrevocably. Less than a decade has elapsed since Facebook open-sourced its hardware designs for its Prineville, Oregon data center and formed the Open Compute Project (OCP). One month previous, the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) had formed to promote the benefits of SDN and the OpenFlow protocol. These two organizations, with more than a little help from companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft, have presided over a shift that has massively reduced CAPEX and OPEX, improved scalability, automation, and efficiency and has given the power back to companies to determine what is the best fit for their particular need.

The Telecom Infra Project – Together We Build

The Telecom Infra Project – Together We Build

I was back in Amsterdam last week, again on my best behavior, for the fourth annual Telecom Infra Project (TIP) global summit in the RAI Centre. I was there in October for the regional OCP summit about which I wrote two blogs that can be found here, part 1 and part 2. This blog is going to be dedicated to exploring TIP with a focus on the Project Groups within. Firstly, we will look at the structure of the organization before examining their 3 strategic domains of Access, Transport, and Core and Management.

The Open Compute Project Part 1

The Open Compute Project Part 1

The OCP’s third regional summit took place on the 26th and 27th of September in Amsterdam. I was in attendance as EPS Global’s representative for the second time (I was on my best behaviour, honest). Over the next 2 blogs I will share some of the new technologies that were on show from the biggest names in the hardware world. In part 1 though, I will give an overview of the OCP, where, when and why they began, the ethos within and where it is heading. Part 2 will be dedicated to the new technologies that aim to solve the ever-increasing challenges within cloud computing and more. With members including Facebook, Google, IBM, Rackspace, Nokia, Microsoft, Alibaba Group and Cisco to name but a few, all working in collaboration, the Open Compute Project looks capable of rising to these challenges.
