How To Build A Modern Network


There have, in recent years, been fundamental changes to the way in which networks are implemented, as data demands have necessitated a wider breadth of functionality and elevated degrees of operational performance. Accompanying all this is a greater need for accurate measurement of such performance benchmarks in real time, plus in-depth analysis in order to identify and subsequently resolve an... » read more

Network Telemetry Solutions For Data Center And Enterprise Networks


One of the most prominent trends in the networking community in the last few years is network telemetry, which enables accurate measurement of the network’s performance in real-time. In this white paper we will discuss how network telemetry is evolving in modern data center networks. Details will then be given of how the generic approach to network telemetry that has been taken by Marvell is... » read more

Targeting And Tailoring eFPGAs


Robert Blake, president and CEO of Achronix, sat down with Semiconductor Engineering to discuss what's changing in the embedded FPGA world, why new levels of customization are so important, and difficulty levels for implementing embedded programmability. What follows are excerpts of that discussion. SE: There are numerous ways you can go about creating a chip these days, but many of the prot... » read more

Mobile Edge Computing For The IoE


More attention is being focused on the edges of networks as the IoE begins taking hold. The reason is that the current wireless infrastructure is inadequate for handling the billions of endpoints that will make up the IoE. So for the IoE to realize its full potential, it will either require some sort of add-on infrastructure or a new discovery in physics. Edge networks were not always suc... » read more

Accelerating Networking Products To Market Using Ethernet VirtuaLAB


A larger number of ports, expanding throughput, decreasing latency and overall improvement in security and ease-of-use are making today’s network switches and routers among the largest IC designs ever developed, reaching beyond a half billion gates. Verification of such complex IC designs, before silicon availability, is a daunting task. A fast, accurate, easy-to-use solution, VirtuaLAB bring... » read more

Changes In The Cloud


I wrapped up an exciting week last Friday at the inaugural NFV World Congress at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose last week, where more than 1,000 stakeholders had gathered to convey, debate, discuss and learn about the vision for the next-generation cloud and networking infrastructure. One of the highlights of the week was the OPNFV mini-summit to communicate the tremendous progress that t... » read more

Is The IoT Safe To Use?


By Ernest Worthman & Ed Sperling Data security has been a problem since well before the invention the computer, and it has been getting progressively more difficult to contain every year for the past eight decades. It was made much worse when computing was decentralized with the introduction of the IBM PC in 1981, made worse again when networking was introduced into corporations by Novell'... » read more
