Evocative operates a global network of 20 carrier and cloud-neutral data centers including colocation facilities in 11 U.S. markets and global Points of Presence (PoPs). Evocative's Boston data center, BOS1, provides mission critical services to support their customers in New England's largest city.
"We are pleased to expand the TOWARDEX ecosystem to Evocative BOS1, enabling their clients with our fiber network services along with direct access to the hundreds of networks and ISPs available through our IX and massive conduit system," said James Jun, Chief Operating Officer of TOWARDEX. "When our market succeeds, we succeed. Partnering with a company that shares in our collaborative vision of bringing faster and easier accessibility to Boston's Internet and data center communities is an ideal outcome."
"The Hub Express System is a revolutionary utility project for Boston's interconnected data center communities and partnering with Evocative is a natural fit," said Gavin Schoch, General Manager of TWDX Infrastructure. "We've created an open access utility environment that allows easy entry into Boston's leading and world-class data centers for all telecommunications providers, while expanding capacity and increasing business opportunities for network providers."
"Providing a greater diversity of carriers and connections to our Evocative client base is of the utmost priority," said Steve Rubin, Vice President of Network Engineering at Evocative. "We are aligned with TOWARDEX in their vision of building for the future and are excited about what this partnership means for our Boston based customers."
Based in Massachusetts, TOWARDEX is a facilities-based network provider specializing in data center interconnections and high-bandwidth fiber optic communications for the cloud and network-enabled enterprises. Powered by its sophisticated statewide optical network that reaches every major interconnection facility in the region, TOWARDEX powers the Massachusetts Internet Exchange (MASS IX) to foster the internet peering community and lower the cost of interconnections throughout the Bay State.

Intelligent Waves (IW), a leading tech integrator that provides mission-focused, multi-domain operational expertise and innovation to the Federal Government, announced that it has entered into a strategic technology collaboration, integrating Trulifi by Signify technology with IW’s GRAYPATH (GP) solution, developing an obfuscated, Non-RF solution that enhances the mission of the next-gen warfighter and battles.
For decades, the United States has been at war with adversaries where our military’s superior C4I capabilities allowed us to communicate uncontested across all domains of warfare with little resistance. As we enter a new era of warfare with near-peer adversaries we find ourselves communicating in highly monitored and contested environments. This new era allows the detection, identification, interception, and denial of network communications methods we have relied upon for decades.
With IW's GRAYPATH solution plus Trulifi by Signify, military forces on the ground can communicate outside of the radio spectrum, enabling critical communications between dispersed locations without deconfliction of the spectrum.
GRAYPATH Next-Generation enables the obfuscated transmission of sensitive data over any transport method native to any current airfield communication package, but it also enables transmission within host country communications networks that may be available during FEAS operations. GP additionally operates via asymmetric routing, ensuring the highest level of redundant communications by employing all transport paths simultaneously.
As a result, smaller, low bandwidth dishes can be combined, ultimately increasing bandwidth, which allows high-speed communications that would not otherwise be possible until larger communication packages were employed, resulting in better reporting of photos, videos, and other information to commanders.
Chief Strategy Officer of Intelligent Waves, John Hammes, said, "Intelligent Waves is thrilled to incorporate Signify’s light-based communication solution with our award-winning cyber defense platform, GRAYPATH, which currently serves the most demanding and secure special operators in austere environments, and we look forward to integrating Trulifi by Signify into our existing platform."
LiFi technology, a two-way wireless connection enabled by light, allows for reliable high-speed data transmissions. Instead of radio, invisible light is used for communication, making the connection impervious to jamming. The integration with GRAYPATH provides low probability detection, and low probability intercepted communications from an enterprise to an operational environment.
Using GRAYPATH, users can employ several methods of transport simultaneously while utilizing the quantum-resistant routing and encryption techniques to grant operators freedom of movement in the cyber realm. Signals from electromagnetic sources are eliminated when LiFi is implemented in an operational environment, providing users with a fast and easy to deploy and wire-free solution that is both time-efficient and secure, reducing the likelihood that they will be intercepted, jammed, or disrupted by adversaries.
This exciting collaboration between Intelligent Waves and Trulifi by Signify will be showcased at SOF Week on May 9th - 11th, 2023, in booth 1805 in the C4 and Special Reconnaissance section on the 2nd floor of the Tampa Convention Center. SOF Week provides special operations and industry partners the opportunity to reexamine SOF policies, investments, and activities, find ways to augment existing SOF capabilities, foster rapid future capability development and employment, and leverage relationships with allies and partners.

Adtran today launched its FSP 3000 Edge OLS, an open line system designed for the new generation of coherent edge access, aggregation and metro networks. It enables operators to efficiently address soaring bandwidth demand from mobile, broadband and enterprise applications by leveraging the latest coherent pluggable technology in this cost-sensitive part of the network. The FSP 3000 Edge OLS has been specifically engineered for the use of coherent transmission at the optical edge, including the recently introduced Coherent 100ZR, as well as 400ZR optics. By utilizing power-optimized wavelength broadcasting technology and a gridless architecture, the solution enables a simple and affordable optical layer with compact and flexible nodes that can transport any coherent signal and baud rate.
“At OFC, we showcased our world-first QSFP28 Coherent 100ZR, bringing robust, efficient and simple coherent technology to the edge of the network. Now we’re complementing this innovative transceiver with an OLS optimized for the cost-efficient transport of coherent technology at the optical edge. Providing maximum performance, it meets all critical demands of edge aggregation networks, including scalability, compact design, low power consumption, operational simplicity and extended temperature operation for outdoor deployment,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO at Adtran. “Our pioneering work at the network edge is creating whole new opportunities for service providers.”
The Adtran FSP 3000 Edge OLS is an open line system engineered to help operators roll out coherent optical edge networks in the most cost-effective and flexible way possible. With ZR-optimized technology for minimal insertion loss, the new OLS enables the use of ZR coherent optics at the optical edge in multiple use cases, including linear, hub-and-spoke or tree topologies. With its modular design, it empowers users to mix and match elements to create a solution that meets their exact needs. What’s more, the Adtran FSP 3000 Edge OLS facilitates the development of a compact and efficient optical layer with low-power nodes that require minimal space and can function in an extended temperature range. This enables deployment in outdoor environments, such as street cabinets.
“Our FSP 3000 Edge OLS offers a major boost to operators looking for an affordable way to tackle relentless growth in data traffic. Low-cost yet highly flexible, it can scale to transparently accommodate any line speed or baud rate. Now there’s a clear route to deploying an optical layer that leverages coherent transport technology, including 100ZR and 400ZR optics, and meets the stringent requirements of the new optical edge,” commented Henning Hinderthür, VP of product line management, Optical Networks at Adtran. “Our FSP 3000 Edge OLS harnesses advanced wavelength broadcast technology for new levels of power and cost efficiency. It’s also ready to be deployed anywhere from central offices to street furniture.”
