A oferta de CPE virtual de SmartNode para a implementação de hipervisor agiliza implantação do serviço SD-WAN, fornecendo um conjunto de produtos CPE de software nativo na nuvem nativo para download e implantação de hardware bare metal mais conhecido como CPE universal no local (CPE on-premise universal – uCPE).

Ao contrário de muitos produtos CPE concorrentes, o Patton vSN não limita o número de usuários registrados ou sessões. A capacidade de chamadas pode ser facilmente aumentada ou reduzida com o modelo de licenciamento flutuante que distribui automaticamente as licenças da Nuvem para hipervisores SDN onde quer que estejam.

Este lançamento da Patton após a divulgação de uma taxa de crescimento anual composta (compound annual growth rate – CAGR) de 45,4% no mercado de CPE virtual que pode alcançar US$ 16,4 bilhões em 2022, de acordo com uma previsão recente do IDC .

Proporcionando todos os benefícios e nenhuma das limitações de um dispositivo CPE retrátil de desempenho, o vSN pode ser fornecido, configurado, gerido e monitorado remotamente como uma máquina virtual (virtual machine – VM) com o uso da Patton Cloud .

Graças a operação simplificada, CAPEX e OPEX reduzidos e entrega mais rápida dos serviços, os CPEs virtuais são os fatores-chave da crescente tendência de implantação de virtualização de função de rede (network function virtualization – NFV), de acordo com a techtarget .

Os casos de uso de SmartNode NFV oferecidos no momento são:

  • Servidor VPN
  • Porta de rede IPv6-para-IPv4
  • Roteador de acesso IP
  • Controlador de borda de sessão para empresas (Enterprise session border controller – eSBC) para aplicações de troncos de PBX ou de SIP hospedados

Le nouveau CPE virtuel prend en charge les solutions d’hyperviseur VNF pour SD-WAN

La gamme virtual SmartNode (vSN) de produits CPE virtuels simplifie, accélère et diminue les coûts de déploiement des services de trunks SIP, de PBX hébergés, de SDN, d’accès HP et de VPN

Les passerelles VoIP SmartNode sont désormais la réalité !

GAITHERSBURG, Md., 15 avr. 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND : Patton Electronics, fabricant éprouvé d’équipements de réseau IP physiques, a officiellement publié sa ligne virtual SmartNode (vSN) de logiciels CPE virtuels, d’après une annonce faite aujourd’hui.

L’offre de CPE virtuels pour la mise en œuvre d’hyperviseurs simplifie le déploiement du service SD-WAN en fournissant un ensemble de produits CPE logiciels sur le cloud à télécharger et à déployer avec du matériel sur site « bare metal » (également appelé « universal CPE » (uCPE)).

Contrairement à de nombreux produits CPE virtuels concurrents, le vSN de Patton ne limite pas le nombre d’utilisateurs enregistrés ou de sessions. La capacité d’appel peut facilement être augmentée ou réduite en fonction des besoins à l’aide d’un modèle de licence flottante qui distribue automatiquement les licences du cloud vers les hyperviseurs SDN quel que soit l’endroit où ils se trouvent.

L’annonce de Patton fait suite à la prévision d’un taux de croissance annuel composé (TCAC) de 45,4 % sur le marché du CPE virtuel, qui pourrait atteindre les 16,4 milliards de dollars en 2022, selon une récente prévision d’IDC.

En offrant tous les avantages et aucune des limites de performances d’un périphérique CPE sous emballage, le vSN peut être provisionné, configuré, géré et surveillé à distance en tant que machine virtuelle (VM) à l’aide du Cloud Patton.

Grâce à un fonctionnement simplifié, à une réduction des dépenses en immobilisations et en exploitation, et à une prestation de service plus rapide, les CPE virtuels sont les principaux moteurs de la tendance haussière que connaît le déploiement de la virtualisation des fonctions réseau (NFV), d’après techtarget.

La NFV SmartNode actuellement proposée sert dans les cas suivants :

  • Serveur VPN
  • Passerelle réseau IPv6 à IPv4
  • Routeur d’accès IP
  • Contrôleur de session de périphérie de niveau entreprise (eSBC) pour les applications de trunks SIP ou PBX hébergés

Avec le téléchargement des logiciels depuis le cloud, les machines virtuelles de l’hyperviseur peuvent être redéployées pour n’importe quelle option de VNF mises à disposition par Patton, en fonction des demandes de l’administration du réseau.

>>Patton dispensera un webinaire qui traitera des cas d’utilisation de la solution vSN. Les participants peuvent rejoindre le webinaire proposé à l’heure qui leur convient le mieux :

Belfrics Group launches a blockchain skill-drive initiative in association with DIT

DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania, April 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Belfrics Group, one of the largest international blockchain conglomerates of the world, in association with Dar Es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT), one of the leading technology and engineering institutes in Tanzania and the East African region, today announced a joint initiative to develop a pool of talented and skilled technology professionals for blockchain as a domain. Belfrics Academy SDN BHD, the research, international training and skill development vertical of Belfrics Group of Companies, would lead the efforts to address the knowledge-gap and the rapidly growing requirements Blockchain Talents in the industry.

Belfrics DIT signing ceremony

On this momentous association, Mr. Praveenkumar Vijayakumar, Founder and CEO — Belfrics Group of Companies said, “We all know that the Internet is filled with the so many online courses on Blockchain technology. But the sad reality is that, the quality of talent and knowledge that is out there, is not even close to what the industry needs. There is still a humungous knowledge-gap, and a huge void in terms of the quality and quantity of blockchain talent in the market. This is not only an Africa problem; this is a world problem! And we are happy to have associated with an esteemed institute like DIT which is synonymous with technology as an industry.”

DIT, being one of the leaders in the space of capacity building for the latest technologies in the industry, keenly believes blockchain to be the next big wave in the digital transformation of the world, and especially, Africa. Similarly, Belfrics Group of companies has been one of the leading conglomerates spearheading the blockchain movement across the globe. With its presence in Asia Africa Middle East and South America regions, Belfrics is one of the few global companies to have worked with government bodies, financial regulators, and conglomerates for a blockchain-ready infrastructure.

We are pleased to see educational leaders like DIT come forward and being open to the need of the industry. I would say, that this is the right time, between being proactive or before being reactive to the industry demands. Employment and development is Key, and for that we must understand where the future is. DIT is doing just that. In fact, we’re pleasantly surprised to see the level of awareness and requests from other prestigious institutes from the East African Region for blockchain skill development. Since we are one of the major blockchain talent hirers ourselves, we are very much aware of the quality and quantity of the talent available currently. Such collaborations are required to address the current gap,”says E C Uday Senan, Global Strategist — Belfrics Academy.

Blockchain technology is among the emerging technologies that will soon revolutionize the internet and the ICT industry. Due to its inherent features, such as distributed system with no single point of failure, usage of cryptograph for data protection, and fast data transfer and sharing of digital assets, Blockchain has huge potential and a number of applications, particularly in developing countries. To leverage the potentials of this technology, it is critically important we create awareness of the technology as well as build the capacity of our students, staff and the general public. This is exact what DIT will do in collaboration with Belfrics. This will enable DIT to become the hub of blockchain technology, the hub where capacity building of our people as well as experimentation and eventually development of the blockchain systems for improving government service delivery will take place,” says Dr Joseph W. Matiko, the Director of ICT Centre at Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology.

“DIT is positioned to support the industrial economy by creating skilled workforce for the nation. Therefore, collaboration between DIT and Belfrics is important for capacity building of our students and staff and creating the digital skilled workforce in the country. We are really pleased to establish this collaboration because it is in line with our strategies of teaching factory concept and engagement of the industry in teaching and learning activities,” says Prof Preksedis M. Ndomba, Principal of the Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology.

“We are excited to partner with Dar es salaam Institute of Technology (DIT) on the launch of Blockchain Trainings for Corporates, DIT Students and Staff Members and the Tanzania Community at large. Blockchain Technology ensures digital skills are accessible to Tanzanians particularly youth and supports with securing meaningful opportunities where they can apply their talents, ideas and expertise to advance the Country’s economic, Industrialization and social development,” said Aziz Chonya, Director, Belfrics Tanzania.

The collaboration between DIT and Belfrics comes in at a very crucial stage, with Africa being closely eyed as the next talent-hub by the world. With blockchain strongly anticipated to be the driver for the next stream of technological innovations, African countries “stand to benefit from this shift more than other nations because most of Africa has a Greenfield in banking, finance, health and other legacy infrastructure. Africa has a unique opportunity to leapfrog in many areas and develop new infrastructure and use cases to power the future” according to an article on medium.

Belfrics Academy, the international research and skill-development vertical of Belfrics, is dedicated to customized blockchain training for Universities, Colleges and training institutes, and capacity building for Government bodies, Regulators and Private Organizations. Belfrics Academy also mentors and nurtures Blockchain talents by setting up Innovation-hubs within the University campuses to drive and mentor more blockchain talent and ideas.

Belfrics is one among the very few companies who have developed and built their own blockchain, ‘Belrium’, which is now live and deployed, and which is being seriously considered as the technology carrier by many government bodies and conglomerates for solutions from identity data harmonization, to supply chain infrastructure, to smart governance infrastructure to healthcare infrastructure, around the globe.

DIT and Belfrics Academy, through this collaboration, aim at nurturing as much talent as possible in the academic year of 2019, as the demand is rapidly increasing, thus resulting in employment of young Africans in this technology space.
