CHICAGO -- Light Reading’s Big Telecom Event -- Omnitron Systems Technology, (www.omnitron-systems.com) a leader in Carrier Ethernet demarcation, today announced the launch of the iConverter XM5 10G Network Interface Device (NID). The XM5 is an MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 compliant NID that provides 10 Gigabit and Gigabit service demarcation and aggregation for wholesale Ethernet, 4G/LTE mobile backhaul, small cell, business and cloud services.
The XM5 is the smallest, full-function 10G NID available, and has the lowest power consumption. It features three 10G SFP+ or XFP ports and up to four SFP or 10/100/1000 RJ-45 gigabit ports, and functions as a UNI or NNI. The XM5 can be deployed as a 10G ring node with aggregation ports for 10G and gigabit spoke links, or as a demarcation NID on a 10G access link with gigabit and 10G customer-facing ports for multiple tenants. It is available with redundant AC or DC power inputs, and supports extended temperature ranges from -40º to 75ºC.
Light Reading founder Steve Saunders recently visited the University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNCC) where Cisco's Tetration application is providing data center analytics, simplifying SDN, helping with cloud migration and overseeing white-list security policy.
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
