To meet greater traffic demands and lower operating costs, some of the world’s largest service providers today are looking at open source software to deliver new network services using OpenStack and Linux containers.
In a panel on ‘Rise of Open Cloud Architectures and Over-the-Top Network Services’ at Open Networking Summit 2016, speakers from Arista, Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) and Akanda shared OpenStack implementations for over the top (OTT) network services.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is an emerging alternative to using dedicated hardware appliances, particularly for service providers, where quick, flexible responses to traffic pattern shifts and user demand changes are essential. It implements network tasks like access security, load balancing, and packet filtering as software modules suitable for virtualized cloud environments.
As Lee Cheng explained in his keynote speech at the Collaboration Summit held March 29-31 in Lake Tahoe, California, fighting patent trolls as part of his job at Newegg Inc. is a natural progression from his earliest legal involvement in civil rights advocacy.
OpenDaylight (ODL) is an open source SDN platform designed to serve a broad set of use cases and end user types, mainly service providers, large enterprises, and academic institutions. Uniquely, ODL provides a plethora of network services in all domains--data center, WAN, NREN, metro and access.
SK Telecom envisions transforming itself into a platform company, making the mobile network as a platform where new services can be created and supported including traditional telco applications, media apps, streaming and IoT applications.
IBM loves Apache Spark. It’s training its engineers on it, it’s contributing to the project, and it’s building many of its big data products on top of the open source platform so IBM’s enterprise customers can use its powerful tools.
With so many technologies, tools, and techniques to keep track of, it can be hard to know where to start learning new skills. This series on next-gen cloud technologies aims to help you get up to speed on the important projects and products in emerging and rapidly changing areas such as containers, container orchestration, software-defined networking, and more.
At the recent Embedded Linux Conference and OpenIoT Summit, Mozilla Technical Evangelist Dietrich Ayala proposed a simple and affordable solution to home automation: A discarded smartphone can handle some of the most useful home automation tasks without requiring expensive hubs and sensors -- or risking data security in the cloud.
“With a smartphone you can detect motion, sound, presence, and the absence of radio services,” said Ayala in his presentation, “Turning Sensors into Signals: Humanizing IoT with Old Smartphones and the Web.”
