You are reading what will be the first of many entries to our new blog section. We are excited to unveil this new source of information about both our company and our industry. We plan to use this as an educational tool – one that discusses and examines the many trends in the world of next-generation solutions. Optical communications technology is constantly evolving, and our blog will be a place readers can reference for the latest news and developments in multi-technology networking. You will also find information about our latest company news and announcements, as well as profiles of the LightRiver team.
We already have a good deal to discuss, as 2017 is off to a fast start. We will take a look at the current “State of the Network” through several entries, including the current direction of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV), how it will change the face of the network in 2017. We will also provide insight into how data centers and engineers should prepare for these leading-edge needs. Utilities are also transforming, and we look forward to providing insight into how the industry should prepare the expansion of the Internet of Things, the smart city revolution and big data.
Our next post will be coming soon, and you can visit this space regularly for new and relevant information. We hope this blog will help you understand and prepare for changes in next generation networks as we navigate the fast-paced, ever-changing world of technology!
