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 OCP’s 3rd regional summit in Amsterdam’s RAI centre was a resounding success by every measure.  Attendance increased by 9% to 700 visitors, with those visitors hailing from 38 different countries. There were executive talks, engineering workshops, case studies, project working groups and new product announcements from the likes of Inspur and Wiwynn. While videos and slides for all these sessions are available on the OCP’s  website nothing can really replicate attending to get a feel for the way the OCP and industry is shifting, and the shift was noticeable.
