Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, today announced the launch of the ECS4125-10P, the world's first enterprise PoE network switch that supports the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) OpenLAN Switching (OLS). With the ECS4125-10P, IT professionals can enjoy a competitive and differentiated wiring closet switching solution, enabling more diverse and flexible network deployment options. The switch can support all TIP OpenWiFi devices, providing an open network solution that spans both wired and wireless environments.
The OLS project, initiated by TIP’s Open Converged Wireless Project Group in 2022, seeks to address the next major network upgrade demands for high power, high throughput, and low latency. The project aims to provide diverse and competitive alternatives for PoE switches and accelerate innovation, enabling an ecosystem that provides end-to-end solutions. As a pioneer of OpenWiFi, Edgecore has taken the lead in supporting the OLS project, being the first commercial vendor to contribute Ethernet switch expertise to the TIP OLS project. The company is working closely with TIP’s OpenWiFi Program Group to accelerate the progress of the OLS technology stack.
In addition to the highly-anticipated ECS4125-10P, Edgecore plans to release an exciting lineup of switch models that support TIP OLS in 2023. The Edgecore OLS series will include PoE switches ranging from 8 to 48 ports and from 1G to multi-G speeds, leveraging Edgecore's existing comprehensive enterprise PoE switch product line. With over 35 years of experience in switching technology from the parent company, Accton Technology, Edgecore has shipped hundreds of thousands of switches around the world, demonstrating the company's expertise and success in the industry.
"We are excited to be participating in the OLS project and collaborating with TIP OpenWiFi and other partners to expand end-to-end solutions under the OpenWiFi architecture that addresses the next major network upgrade," said Tengtai Hsu, VP of Edgecore Networks. "Our commitment to innovation and experience in open networking makes us an ideal partner for this project."
"This product launch demonstrates the strong momentum we have seen for OpenWiFi around the globe. With commercial deployments expanding and new Managed Service Providers launching OpenWiFi deployments, this is another example of how OpenWiFi accelerates innovation in the industry and provides customers with more choice and flexibility," said Jack Raynor, Co-Chair TIP OpenWiFi. "We look forward to working with Edgecore and other vendors in the OpenWiFi community to develop open-source software for network switches that meet the needs of customers that seek an open and disaggregated Wi-Fi solution."
The release of the ECS4125-10P and the upcoming introduction of multiple switch models that support TIP OLS in 2023 demonstrate Edgecore's commitment to offering a range of cutting-edge PoE switches, fostering innovation in the networking industry, and meeting the needs of IT professionals worldwide with quality and feature-rich solutions.

euNetworks Group Limited, a company that provides bandwidth infrastructure in Western Europe, recently announced its acquisition of the dark fiber business branch of a utility company called ‘the Business Branch’ in Belgium.The Business Branch, constructed in the late 1990s, is a duct-based network with 1,660 km of fiber dispersed throughout unique Brussels routes and long haul routes across Belgium. It has access to additional high-bandwidth sites and is close to 13 data centers.
Customers from national and regional ISPs to content, cloud providers, mobile network operators, and hyperscalers will receive dark fiber and lit services through euNetworks' long-haul infrastructure. The recent upgrade underwent increased expansion capacity and ability to pull the new, higher-count cable, satisfying euNetworks' client bandwidth growth needs.
Paula Cogan, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks remarked, “euNetworks continues to distinguish itself in the digital infrastructure ecosystem, delivering critical internet infrastructure to customers through an asset-rich business focused on developing and deepening its fibre networks in Europe.” She added, “This acquisition will strengthen euNetworks’ leadership in European infrastructure by enabling us to expand across Belgium while maintaining our focus on delivering unique and scalable network routes to our customers between key data centres. It also presents compelling investment opportunities as we look into adjacent geographies with our customers to give them an end-to-end experience and as we focus on the ongoing densification of the high-demand bandwidth region of FLAP (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris).”

The inclusion of the Business Branch complements euNetworks' current approach. euNetworks is committed to providing high-bandwidth fiber connectivity within and between European cities, constantly improving its infrastructure. These improvements include creating new routes, adding new paths, and expanding into key hyperscale data center sites, network aggregation points and data center clusters. These investments drive the capacity needs of euNetworks' customers and fuel the company's expansion.
euNetworks was started in 2002 and has been serving wholesale, finance, content, media, mobile, data centers, and enterprise customers with critical bandwidth infrastructure services. The company owns and runs 17 fiber-based metropolitan networks and a high-capacity intercity backbone that connect 53 cities in 17 European countries. euNetworks offers a range of metropolitan and long-haul services, including Dark Fiber, Ethernet and Wavelengths and is a leading cloud connectivity provider.
