PETALUMA, Calif. -- Cyan today announced the availability of a single-slot 100G coherent transponder for the Z-Series family of packet-optical transport platforms (P-OTPs). The new DTM 100G sets an industry benchmark for density and flexibility by delivering 100G in a single slot module supporting the full range of optical reach capabilities. In addition to dramatically reducing the cost of delivering 100G transport services, and increasing density for core applications, the DTM-100G gives service providers unprecedented flexibility in their deployments. This flexibility is the result of integrated support for short, medium, long, and extended reach C form-factor pluggable (CFP) client interfaces. Unlike prevailing solutions, this means service providers and data center operators are assured that a single slot will satisfy all optical reach requirements. Early deployments of the DTM 100G include Great Plains Communications in the US, among others. When coupled with Blue Planet, Cyan’s software-defined network (SDN) system developed for service providers and other network operators, the DTM-100G is one of the first SDN-based 100G solutions. This will eventually allow virtual machines to be spun up in large data centers to dynamically create 100G data center interconnect (DCI) circuits for large scale backup and disaster recovery. “The ability to deliver coherent 100G transport services in such a compact form factor is unprecedented,” said Michael Hatfield, Cyan president. “It is in keeping with the philosophy that has characterized Cyan from the beginning—harnessing the latest technical innovations to help our customers scale their networks while driving down costs. Reducing slot consumption, improving optical reach flexibility, and eliminating the need for external modules yields a 100G solution that can be deployed in scale.” Cyan Inc.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
