On March 01, 2023, Cyxtera, a leading company in interconnection and data center colocation services, announced a strategic partnership with Dell Technologies to boost the infrastructure deployments of their customers by combining Dell's infrastructure with Cyxtera's colocation and network technologies.
Using Cyxtera's global network of colocation facilities as well as Digital Exchange network fabric, the companies will offer full stack infrastructure as a service to international enterprises of all sizes, as well as federal, local, and state government bodies. This includes server and rack unit-specific compute infrastructure, colocation space, network connectivity, and power. These capabilities enable a cloud-like deployment experience for workloads requiring performance, security, and control of dedicated infrastructure and colocation.
Within a Cyxtera data center, the Cyxtera Dell Experience Lab allows consumers to interact with Dell Technologies across various consumption models. Through Cyxtera's robust Command Center interface, participants in the Experience Lab can visualize how to construct an on-demand data center using Dell Technologies. Clients can:
Use Cyxtera's Marketplace to gain access to hundreds of providers.
Deploy and manage Dell PowerEdge servers colocated within a Cyxtera SmartCab.
Deploy Dell PowerEdge server infrastructure with Cyxtera's Enterprise Bare Metal service as needed.
Manage the Enterprise Bare Metal and colocated solutions' core networking and Layer 2 interconnections.
Establish dynamic connections to the public cloud, public internet, and enterprise WAN providers.
Chief Revenue Officer of Cyxtera, David Keasey, shared, "We're focused on providing rapid, seamless access to the technologies our customers need to support their unique business demands," He added, "By offering on-demand access to Dell infrastructure via our Enterprise Bare Metal offering, we will enable organizations of all sizes to harness the power of raw compute resources via a cloud-like delivery model across our global data center footprint."

Lattice Semiconductor | March 01, 2023
On February 28, 2023, the leader in low-power programmable semiconductors, Lattice Semiconductor, expanded its Lattice ORANTM solution stack to assist flexible, secure synchronization and timing for Open Radio Access Network (ORAN) implementations. Lattice ORANTM now supports tight synchronization for ORAN fronthaul interfaces adherence with critical ITU (International Telecommunication Union) profiles and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) standards. This enhances the stack's ability to accelerate and secure current and next-generation customer applications.
The latest Lattice ORANTM solution stack (v 1.1) has built-in mutual authentication for secure synchronization and support for
IEEE Standards, including IEEE Std 1588™-2019 (default profile) and IEEE Std 802.1AS™-2020, made for Time Sensitive Networks (TSN).
ITU-T Telecom Profiles, which includes frequency synchronization (G.8265.1), Phase/time synchronization with incomplete timing support (G.8275.2) and Phase/time synchronization with complete timing support (G.8275.1).
ITU-T Timing Characteristics of T-BC and T-TSC Class C (G.8273.2)
In addition, a Lattice FPGA-based development platform has been incorporated into the Lattice ORANTM stack. FPGA stands for Field Programmable Gate Array, and it is an integrated circuit (IC) that facilitates the rapid prototyping and final system design of custom logic. The Secure Timing and Synchronization Kit are intended to simplify the testing, exhibition, and creation of novel telecommunications applications.

Leviton | January 06, 2023
Leader in electrical, lighting, and networking systems, Leviton, has made significant headway in its five-year, $80 million worldwide capital investment plan for its Network Solutions vertical.
Leviton's investment in the Network Solutions business unit will solidify its $202 million acquisition of Berk-Tek in 2020, will increase its production capacity worldwide, and establish Leviton as one of the leading end-to-end makers of copper and fiber network infrastructure systems.
The new expansion project of the Leviton fiber optic cabling manufacturing facility in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, makes up a sizeable chunk of the investment strategy. Construction of the project began in December 2022. Once finished in 2024, the facility will be equipped to support single mode cables, made-to-order fiber optic cable assemblies and long-term growth of multimode cables.
In addition to this vast expansion, Leviton has implemented the following key advancements:
Leviton's ATLAS-X1TM and EXTREMETM solutions have grown globally. Indeed, that doubled capacity in 2021 to meet worldwide demand.
Additionally, Leviton added state-of-the-art technology at its Glenrothes (Scotland) manufacturing facility to improve capacity and deliver a uniform global specification for Category 6A cabling.
Installing the optical fiber cable in the second quarter of last year, Leviton armored in sales support of this rapidly growing product line, including pre-terminated data center solutions in its NC factory.
Leviton designs innovative products across multiple industries, including electrical, lighting, and networking, to improve people's lives in several ways. Isidor Leviton immigrated from Russia to the United States in 1906, started a modest tinsmithing business, and founded Leviton, promising to remain committed to thinking and growing, innovative in creating new products, dedicated to giving safer life to communities throughout the world and adhere to UL standards in producing high-quality products.
