Combining Diversity and Low Latency with Sidera and Sabey

By admin, July 2, 2012 3:03 pm

The recent collaboration between Sidera Networks?(News – Alert) and Sabey Data Centers means a few things for the evolution of the data center industry not the least of which is the combining of diversity and latency. Clint Heiden?(News – Alert), president of Sidera, shed some light at last week’s Telecom Exchange 2012 in New York City on what has influenced Sidera’s decisions over the last several months, and what all this cloud business means moving forward for the industry.

As a provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, Sidera brings its market expertise to Sabey Data Centers to connect its properties in New York, Ashburn, VA, and Seattle, WA.

Heiden said that the two major reasons Sidera has “gone after the data center” include the movement to the cloud and how “the ability to do things for data centers is coming to fruition.” The developments in the fiber-optic network space now enable impressive connectivity.

“We are able to take a Sabey data center in New York and one in Seattle and make them feel like the same data center. The theory is that the latency is so low you can back up your data in Washington State where power is 2 cents and have it feel like power in New York where data is 14 cents,” said Heiden. Making the connectivity of the highest quality at the lowest cost is what this collaboration brings to market.

Ubiquity is also at the forefront of this collaborative partnership. Sidera’s goal is for a user to be able to have the Internet at the same price in one location as the next. “If I go to Clifden or Secausus, a 1 gig is the same as it is in Chicago. From budgeting standpoint, the operators can go to their bosses, and they can tell them they can disperse data traffic across whichever points they want because Sidera prices the entire Internet at one price,” said Heiden.

Sabey will be able to focus on its financial and healthcare customers more keenly now as the diversity and low latency brought to its data centers with Sidera’s collaboration will enable it to continue to deliver prime uptime, scale, and service. John Sabey, president of the company, noted in the news, “Sidera allows us to extend that focus with unique diversity and low-latency connectivity throughout the New York Metro and between New York and Ashburn, VA, which are critical areas for our financial services and healthcare customers.”

Essentially, the diversity of the connections while maintaining low latency is what Sidera focuses on in order to deliver this high-quality connectivity. “The cloud is making things simple – that’s what it’s about,” said Heiden. “Infrastructure and IT pricing. It’s the next level of simplicity. It’s about supplying the best amount of bandwidth necessary.”

Basin Electric Power Cooperative Selects Aviat Networks to Replace Microwave Network

By admin, April 2, 2012 8:52 am

Basin Electric Power has signed an agreement with Aviat (News – Alert) Networks for its Eclipse Packet Node microwave platform as the electric utility gears up for replacing its existing networks in North and South Dakota.

Under the deal, Santa Clara, California-based Aviat Networks will roll out a replacement network based on the Eclipse Packet Node microwave platform, an enhanced Hybrid radio that supports existing TDM and future IP traffic in native formats.

The platform that Aviat is supplying is expected to upgrade Basin Electric’s 45Mbps infrastructure to 360Mbps throughput using the antennas of similar size. For Basin Electric, it was a long-pending dream to boost the capacity of its microwave network to cope with the rising traffic.

Aviat is dispatching a team of experts who will design and roll out the microwave network in North Dakota and South Dakota as early as the first quarter of 2013.

“The existing system does not have the bandwidth to carry the additional protective relaying, SCADA, mobile radio, data and voice channels to support system growth,” said Boyd Trester, project engineer with Basin Electric.

Trester believes that Aviat’s new  microwave radio system will have eight times the capacity of the current system.

Mandan, N.D-based Basin Electric caters to more than 2.  Aihepiirilliset pelit On uusin konsepti kasino maailmassa..8 million electric consumers and its service territory is spread across 540,000 square miles in nine states. You can sign up for ObamaCare’s marketplaces by finding your State’s health marketplace or going directly to healthcare..

The network upgrade is expected to help Basin Electric streamline its operation and expand the service to newer areas in the years ahead.

“Basin feels that microwave is more reliable than ‘aerial’ optical fiber, mounted on electric transmission lines,” Trester said. “Optical fiber takes time to repair and put back into service. Microwave systems have a higher in-service rate and if they do go down, can be restored much more quickly in a crisis scenario.”

In other news from September 2011, Aviat Networks selected Parature (News – Alert) for online customer support, the company has announced.

Customers can now search a comprehensive Knowledgebase, full of useful articles for more than 36 products, and receive auto-suggested answers to their inquiries with Parature’s EasyAnswer feature through Aviat Network’s website.
