BTI Systems to Showcase Interoperability in EANTC Demo

Test Network Featured at the Co-Located MPLS & Ethernet World Congress, V6 World Congress and SDN Summit 2013

OTTAWA and BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 -- BTI Systems, the software and networking leader empowering content and service providers to capitalize on trends in cloud services, mobility and Internet video, today announced that it will participate in a multivendor Interoperability Showcase organized by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC). The annual demonstration will take place at the co-located MPLS & Ethernet World Congress, V6 World Congress and SDN Summit 2013 in Paris, March 19-22.

The EANTC Interoperability Showcase will focus on the latest advances in the industry, including software-defined networking (SDN) and Carrier Ethernet 2.0. In addition, mobile backhaul over packet switched networks will be tested, including packet-based clocking and synchronous Ethernet. Complete details on the test network can be found in the EANTC white paper.

"We successfully demonstrated interoperability and are extremely proud that the BTI Service Access 810 will play an integral role in the final showcase test network," said Peter Green, Senior Product Manager of Ethernet Products at BTI Systems. "We are excited to collaborate with other leading companies in this public multivendor interoperability event to validate the state of the art of Carrier Ethernet clocking and synchronization for mobile backhaul applications. It's a tremendous achievement, and one that comes on the heels of BTI being named to the inaugural class of companies that have attained the coveted CE 2.0 certification status from the MEF."

The Service Access 810 is the first offering in the BTI product suite to be MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified. A foundational component of BTI's Mobile Backhaul and Ethernet Business Services solutions, the Service Access 810 is a compact, carrier-grade, cell tower-ready access platform with enhanced service-level management that delivers scalable services and helps reduce operational costs. With integrated support for both Ethernet and TDM connectivity, it creates an affordable, seamless path to high-performance Ethernet WAN and wireless 3G/4G mobile backhaul services.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
Here to help unpack insights into the new era of using containers to gain ease with multi-cloud deployments are our panelists: Matt Baldwin, Founder and CEO at StackPointCloud, based in Seattle; Nic Jackson, Developer Advocate at HashiCorp, based in San Francisco, and Reynold Harbin, Director of Product Marketing at DigitalOcean, based in New York. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lose a lot of visibility into these containers resulting in operational blind spots and even more haystacks to find the presumptive performance issue needle.
