NEW YORK -- Verizon has expanded 100G technology on its ultra-long-haul network in the U.S. and Europe, adding the technology to more than 4,800 miles of its global IP network during the first half of 2013.
The 100G expansion includes almost 4,500 miles on the Verizon U.S. network, bringing to approximately 21,400 the total number of 100G miles currently deployed on the network. Among the new 100G routes are Seattle to Salt Lake City, Indianapolis to St. Louis, St. Louis to Memphis, Charlotte to Nashville and Cleveland to Detroit.
The company has a goal of deploying an additional 8,700 100G miles in the U.S. by the end of the year.
In Europe, Verizon deployed 100G on an additional 350 miles between Brussels and Frankfurt, bringing to 5,100 the total number of 100G miles in Europe. The company plans to deploy an additional 1,400 miles by the end of this year.
The 'gleaming city on a hill,' Steve Saunders calls it. But who is going to take us from today's NFV componentry to the grand future of a self-driving network? Here's a look at the vendors hoping to make it happen.
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.
