In this issue, we profile Sherita Ceaser, the recipient of the 2014 Women In Technology Award. CED editors attended the 2014 Cable-Tec Expo, caught up on keynotes, sampled the seminars, and sat through the sessions to bring you a comprehensive overview of the technologies that are driving progress in the cable industry. Contributed articles address managing networks – one looks at smart home networks, the other at the cloud.
Cogeco Data Services is beefing up its flagship data center in Barrie, Ontario by adding more than 20,000-square-feet of operational space. Cogeco said the expansion project at the data center was underway and it will be wrapped up early next year.
RCN Business has installed a point-of-presence at 325 Hudson in New York City in order to provide its business customers with more interconnection options. On the flip side, 325 Hudson customers gained access to other markets served by RCN Business including: Boston, Chicago, Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

The three hardware platforms do all touch “endpoints” in a network, and could all, presumably, be used by any single network operator, so to that end, Cisco is lumping them all together in what it’s calling its Elastic Access portfolio. The software to manage them all is called Virtualized Elastic Access management.
Worldwide shipments of PCs fell during the first three months of the year, but the latest numbers show that the global slump in PC demand may be easing. Although the numbers released Wednesday by market research firms Gartner and IDC mark the industry's eighth straight quarter of declines, they also show a considerable slowdown from the drops in the fourth quarter of 2013.
British-American physicist Stuart Parkin has won the 1 million-euro ($1.3 million) Millennium Technology Prize for discoveries leading to a thousand-fold increase in digital data storage on magnetic disks. His discoveries enabled cloud services and the online distribution of social networks, music and film.
By partnering with Cisco on the MRS program, TWCBC can offer its subscribers managed services for WAN connectivity, security and other services and technologies. TWCBC assumes responsibility for provisioning, configuration, change management, monitoring and remote operations of a customer’s Internet and wide area network services.
CED interviews Nathan Tracy of TE Data Communications on the data trends, and how optical interconnect can alleviate increasingly severe power/thermal issues. Data centers, video headends and hubs, and other facilities are digesting Internet traffic in 100G streams. Pushing all that data around takes copious amounts of power, and a good portion of it gets dissipated as heat.
Fiber deep? You have no idea. The reach of fiber has extended far, far beyond the network level, and photonics are now critical in interconnect with routers, switchers, and similar network equipment. The industry is also investigating ways to incorporate photonics not only on printed circuit boards, but even beyond that all the way down to the chip level.
Bright House Networks and Fujitsu Network Communications recently completed a field trial of 400 Gbps and 800 Gbps on a ring between Tampa Bay and Orlando, to demonstrate the use of “super channels” on a live production network. The test is another indication of how quickly MSOs might need to move toward terabit speeds on their networks.
Demand for 100 gigabit services is rising as companies across financial and market data services, media and entertainment, and healthcare move to support emerging needs for additional bandwidth. These needs include supporting cloud-based services, an influx of devices onto enterprise networks and an increase in volume, scalability, and quality of media content.
Comcast Business has hooked up Atlanta-based Jim Ellis Automotive Group, which is the third largest online dealer in the nation based on sales volume, with its Ethernet services. With 14 dealerships spread across metro Atlanta, the dealership’s previous T1 lines from various providers were costly, slow and hard to manage.
This article takes a look at the challenges that network operators face in validating carrier Ethernet services, as well as the benefits and associated workflow of using advanced Ethernet demarcation devices (EDD) integrated with service activation test (SAT) technology.
Bright House Networks Enterprise Solutions is laying claim to being the first cable operator in the nation to achieve the CiscoMaster Service Provider Certification, which is under the auspices of the Cisco Cloud and Managed Service Program.
