“AWS is delighted to work closely with Prosimo as we share a common vision in helping customers simplify and automate cloud networking to support distributed workforces and digital transformation strategies,” said Chris Grusz, Director of Business Development, AWS Marketplace. “This work delivers tightly integrated services that leverage Prosimo AXI for comprehensive hybrid and multi-cloud networking with industry-leading cloud services from AWS to simplify the onramp, migration and management of the enterprise journey in the cloud of our customers.”

Due to the heterogeneous nature of enterprise cloud adoption, hybrid architectures and multi-cloud networks are becoming increasingly complex. A consistent, reliable and secure experience across business critical and latency-sensitive applications for users in any location are table stakes for enterprises to support distributed workforces and deliver superior customer experiences. Furthermore, as more organizations leverage cloud-native architectures to modernize application frameworks and deliver applications faster, a simple, elastic and scalable solution is required for ‘application to application’ networking.

Prosimo AXI is an autonomous multi-cloud networking solution built on cloud-native constructs that offers comprehensive observability with ML-insight driven recommendations and orchestration. Prosimo AXI gives enterprises fine-grained control over routing for optimized performance of applications and the ability to create policies based on a Zero Trust framework for security.

“Our work with AWS makes it easy and seamless for any enterprise to simplify and realize autonomous cloud networking at any stage of the multi-cloud journey from hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and to the edge,We are ecstatic to be working closely with AWS on go-to-market, collaborating on product integrations and delivering compelling new services to customers.”

Ramesh Prabagaran, CEO and co-founder of Prosimo

Managing segmented network mapping to higher level business constructs based on AWS Cloud WAN provides the building blocks for a simpler networking architecture. Customers can now build an elastic and scalable transit network that can be orchestrated by the Prosimo AXI platform. The Prosimo App Transit provides optimal network layer segmentation as well as cross-region routing to seamlessly connect any application in the public cloud or on-premises infrastructure. Prosimo AXI edges enable enterprises to define fine-grained policies on top of AWS Cloud WAN mapping to their user groups and application endpoints.

“With these new features and functionality on the AXI Platform, Prosimo will be ideally suited to meet our goals: enable modern infrastructure capabilities using newer AWS networking constructs such as Cloud WAN, built-in observability for applications, and remove as much complexity as possible,” said Kevin Paige, CISO, Flexport.

In addition, the new AWS Marketplace for Containers Anywhere integration enables customers to deploy AXI edges through a single AWS portal, for orchestration of the entire transit infrastructure in their hybrid architectures, delivering a better Day 0 experience.

The Prosimo AXI platform leverages cloud-native connectivity constructs, enabling customers to orchestrate Transit Gateway, Virtual Private Cloud peering and PrivateLink and now AWS Cloud WAN. With Prosimo AXI, customers can also easily migrate to the preferred cloud native networking option including AWS Cloud WAN and create granular and contextual policies while providing a fast, secure and frictionless on-demand application experience for users globally without any disruption to end users.

On January 27th, reports of a rapidly spreading ransomware attack started to emerge from Ukraine. The speed at which critical infrastructure networks were shutting down pointed to a ransomware application with a wormable component, whose virality called to mind the WannaCry ransomware. In less than three hours, the infection crippled banks, ATMs, public transport and an airport, as well as utilities provider Kyivenergo. Then it spread outside the Ukraine.

MaxLinear Develops High Efficiency 5G Open RAN Radio Platform on Intel Agilex FPGA

MaxLinear | February 16, 2022

MaxLinear, Inc. announced its collaboration with Intel on a new reference design for next-generation 5G infrastructure Radio Units (RUs) that delivers industry-leading power amplifier (PA) performance and efficiency. Combining Intel's high performance and low power Agilex FPGA family with MaxLinear RF transceivers and MaxLINTM ultra-wideband digital predistortion (DPD) solution allows developers to deliver new radio units rapidly and cost-effectively with pre-integrated and pre-tested cutting-edge linearization capabilities. Radio Access Network (RAN) product developers are challenged to deliver quickly higher bandwidth, more compact, and lighter radios that support new 5G spectrum while simultaneously increasing energy efficiency. Implementing higher bandwidths at higher 5G RF frequencies also drives engineers to use new PA technologies such as Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Doherty architectures. To harness these exciting technologies in practical deployable radios, high-performance DPD signal processing is necessary to linearize the PA output. In addition, designers want a proven off-the-shelf solution for implementing an O-RAN Alliance compliant fronthaul interface. This joint solution addresses these challenges. Together MaxLinear and Intel are combining Intel® Agilex™ FPGAs and O-RAN interface IP with MaxLinear RF Transceivers and DPD IP to provide a complete programmable pre-verified software-defined radio (SDR) platform with the highest integration and lowest power consumption for macro, massive MIMO, and small cell applications. “The Open RAN ecosystem will immediately benefit from our cooperation with industry leader Intel. Our RU reference platforms, featuring Intel Agilex FPGAs, will provide the most flexible programmable solution with the highest system performance available on the market for global Open RAN radio use cases,These high efficiency reference solutions will dramatically reduce the power consumed by 5G radio systems while simultaneously maximizing network performance."
