Communicate anywhere, any time … without infrastructure, without mobile towers, without satellites, without wifi hotspots, and without carriers. Use existing off-the-shelf mobile cell phone handsets. Use your existing mobile phone number wherever you go, and never pay roaming charges again.

Spooked Cisco chief phoned AWS, asked: You're not making a switch, are you?
Thursday, 19 July 2018 23:20

Networks hardware makers can rest easy: the tech titan that is Amazon Web Services isn't going to be selling switches any time soon, which will likely be music to the ears of current AWS supplier Cisco.

News website The Information reported at the end of last week that Amazon was mulling over whether to sell its own switches. Those potential devices, the site reported, could have been supplied with built-in connections to AWS.

Thursday, 19 July 2018 20:18

Ericsson has dodged a loss for the first time in two years, after 18 months under the strict regime imposed by CEO Börje Ekholm, who took the reins at the vendor at the start of 2017.

Thursday, 19 July 2018 12:48

Cisco has emitted 25 product security advisories – with four critical bugs flattened in its service provider-oriented Cisco Policy Suite.

The suite’s Policy Builder toolkit can be exploited by an unauthenticated remote attacker to gain access to its policy interface, due to an authentication bug ( CVE-2018-0376 ). The switch giant explained that an attacker can use this foothold to edit existing repositories or create new ones.

Mellanox plumps up thanks to the storage world's hankering for high-speed Ethernet
Thursday, 19 July 2018 00:52

High-speed Ethernet biz Mellanox has posted record revenues for the second quarter of fiscal year 2018, driven in part by Dell EMC and HPE's seeming insatiable appetite for Ethernet switches.

Sales for Q2 ended 30 June was up by 26.7 per cent to $268.4m, which chief exec Eyal Waldman put down to its "25 gigabit per second and above" kit being slurped more widely across the cloud and HPC markets.

Profits came in at $16.5m, a healthy increase over Q2 FY2017's loss of $7.9m.

Mellanox's financial history is one of steady growth, less a three-quarter-long blip between the end of
