Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Week in Review: Comcast, Socionext, Microsemi, AT&T


April 14, 2017

Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in Multi-Gigabit Ethernet this week.

The week started off with the news that Comcast is planning to draw customers in with promises of powerful Ethernet. It has been adding new customers for ongoing growth in The Battery Atlanta, which is approaching its opening day, according to reports. Not only did the company install two 100 Gbps Ethernet lines—the pair of which actually went live last month—but also brought in a supplementary 320 Wi-Fi access points to join the 800 points already found within SunTrust Park. Find out more HERE.


Next up, Socionext has introduced new solutions to improve video. TMC’s Steve Anderson states, “These new solutions from Socionext include two key points: one, a new high-end media server, and two, a complete 4K HEVC codec on a single chip. With these two systems, both content providers and service providers can get new, powerful options for presenting content without pulling a lot of Ethernet capability out of the equation.” Everything you need to know is HERE.

Meanwhile, Microsemi also announced a new Ethernet development this week. The Libero system-on-a-chip (SoC) version 11.8 offers new design tools geared toward the field programmable gate array (FPGA) user. Anderson points out, “The biggest changes here focus around the new tools involved, ranging from mixed language simulations to brand-new debugging capabilities said to be some of the best around, improving Ethernet use for all.” Continue reading HERE.

Finally, the week rounded out with the news that AT&T Partner Exchange has introduced new enhancements. TMC’s Paula Bernier covered the story, writing, “The AT&T Partner Exchange has come out with a trio of new capabilities on the automation and self-service front in an effort to help businesses become more efficient and effective. That includes new application programming interfaces, expansion of its Ethernet capabilities, and additional self-service support tools.” Everything you need to know is HERE.

That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Multi-Gigabit Ethernet space.
