Ekinops | April 08, 2021
EKINOPS a main provider of optical vehicle and venture availability arrangements, today declares it has been chosen by TELUS, a world-driving correspondences and data innovation organization, to convey network work virtualization (NFV) and cutting edge programming characterized network (SDN) capacities to improve its honor winning organization.
TELUS picked the OneAccess-marked ONE2501, which conveys a "one-box-fits-all" approach. The ONE2501 depends on OneOS6, the secluded programming arrangement empowering a full scope of inherent programming administrations that can be enacted distantly and on-request, outfitting TELUS with a SD-WAN-prepared, transporter grade and multi-administration business information switch. The smaller and force proficient plan of the ONE2501 likewise lessens TELUS' natural impression in the conveyance of its venture administrations.
"Our work with TELUS represents Ekinops' worth to specialist organizations in giving them both opportunity and control, along with a large group of cost investment funds and operational proficiency gains," remarked Kevin Antill, Ekinops' gathering VP of deals for North America. "We are amazingly satisfied to be working close by this significant level one administrator in North America."
"Conveying the availability and quality organization experience our clients have generally expected requires a SDN methodology that carries out access and optical items that are both interoperable and open," said Walter Miron, Director, Technology Strategy, SDN and Business Solutions DevOps at TELUS. "Ekinops' joint effort and adaptability permits us to improve our organizations in an imaginative and versatile manner that decreases our ecological impression and scales our complete expense of proprietorship."
Acromag | December 06, 2021
Acromag's new XMC633 module offers two independent 10-gigabit Ethernet interface ports with 10GBASE-KX4 protocol. The XMC mezzanine card mounts on VME, VPX, PCIe and other embedded computing carrier boards. An industry-leading Intel XL710 Ethernet Controller provides high-performance network connectivity with advanced off-load and virtualization capabilities. The rear I/O model XMC633 routes two KX4 interfaces to the P16 connector and is compatible with conduction-cooling frames. Two other models are available. Acromag's XMC631 has four SFP+ front panel connectors for fiber optic or copper media transceivers, while the rear I/O XMC632 routes two XAUI interfaces to P16. Optional VITA 61 connectors enable PCIe Gen3 data rates across eight high-speed serial lanes on the XMC P15 connector. Designed for COTS applications, XMC630s are ideal for use in defense, aerospace, industrial, and scientific computing systems. Extended temperature operation is supported.
Acromag responded to requests for additional 10GbE interface protocols. Using the latest Intel Ethernet Controller technologies, we now support 10GBASE-KX4 and XAUI backplane interfaces."
Robert Greenfield, Acromag Business Development Manager
Employing Intel's XL710 4-port 10-gigabit Ethernet controller, these modules optimize network performance with intelligent off-loading, innovative virtualization, and advanced traffic direction. When paired with a Xeon-D processor, the two Intel devices provide a balanced hybrid solution of compute and off-load for optimal performance and reduced bottlenecks. For example, with TCP stateless off-loads, the XL710 demonstrates leading performance vs. TOE solutions without restricting feature usage. Other features include precision timing, Energy Efficient Ethernet, and dynamic load balancing. Advanced traffic steering capabilities increase transaction rates and reduce latency.
In rugged systems, the dual KX4 or XAUI interface offers low-cost, low-power 10GbE chip-to-chip communication over the backplane. The four front I/O SFP+ ports support 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR, 10GBASE-T and 10GSFP+Cu connections. Linux and Windows software support is available.
Founded in 1957, Acromag designs/manufactures hi-tech electronics, offering a complete line of embedded computing and I/O solutions, including; general purpose I/O boards, single-board computers, FPGA modules, embedded computers, COM Express products, mezzanine modules, wiring accessories, and software. Industries served include military, aerospace, manufacturing, transportation, utilities, and research laboratories.
Evolve IP | February 21, 2022
Evolve IP, a leading international service provider of Work Anywhere solutions, announced that it has partnered with Webex, a leading provider of cloud-based collaboration solutions, to develop Evolve IP's new unified communications solution, Evolve Anywhere with Webex. Powered by Cisco, the fully integrated UCaaS solution brings together enterprise-grade calling and cutting-edge features provided by Evolve IP Global Voice with Webex's advanced messaging and meetings capabilities, all within a single app.
Evolve Anywhere with Webex was developed to help customers successfully manage the unique business requirements of today's 'new normal'. During the sudden shift to remote work in response to the pandemic, businesses quickly discovered that the meetings and collaboration solutions offered with traditional UCaaS solutions could not adequately support their remote teams. Companies, therefore, started looking for solutions that supported both at home collaboration and more traditional in-office communication needs in a single solution centered around the world-class solutions they already used – like Webex.
The average business is using 3.5 different collaboration solutions and most expect users to continue to work away from the office the majority of the time. By embracing Webex as the center of the employee experience and providing superior voice quality, premium features, and world-class integrations, Evolve IP is able to meet users and businesses where they are. Making it easier for them to successfully adjust to a Work Anywhere future."
Christian Teeft, Chief Technology Officer and EVP of Global Engineering and Software Development at Evolve IP
The announcement builds on Evolve IP's and Webex's already robust partnership.
"Building on our mutual vision to delight the mid-sized businesses, Cisco is thrilled to join with Evolve IP to deliver Evolve Anywhere with Webex," said Tony Lopresti, Senior Director of Product Management at Webex. "With fully integrated Webex technology, Evolve IP's users will experience a modern, all-in-one collaboration tool that delivers simple, flexible, communications, making their businesses more productive and more secure, with any device from anywhere."

Calling – Evolve IP adds high fidelity voice and PBX features natively to the Cisco Webex application with coverage in over 50 countries and seamless support for a variety of traditional handsets and Cisco devices.
Meetings – Energize meetings and get results with immersive HD video that integrates with users' calendars and other devices at the touch of a button. Personalized layouts and immersive sharing, noise canceling abilities, rich AI-powered transcriptions and translations, and people insights, are just a few of the features users rely on to be more productive and effective in the workplace.
Messaging – Users easily connect and collaborate with people inside and outside of their company to stay on top of what matters, all in one place. Messaging, file sharing, and one-click calling online and offline is a breeze using searchable spaces that integrate with business apps to improve efficiency and workflows.
Collaboration – Integrate Webex with essential apps for simplified collaboration, such as Outlook to schedule, view, and join Webex Meetings from a users' calendar.
