Siemens & Sybase team for enterprise mobility

Sybase and Siemens Enterprise Communications Group (SEN) have formed a partnership to deliver enterprise communications systems that integrate fixed and mobile devices and services.

"We're seeing an increasing demand for an unwired enterprise that gives mobile knowledge workers complete access to their data and communications regardless of location," said Marcus Birkl, vice president of mobility solutions, for SEN.

"By partnering with Sybase we can offer our customers the leading-edge management capabilities for all forms of mobile devices that they require, enhancing the usability and the 'industrialisation' of fixed mobile convergence technology."

The partnership will see Sybase's mobile device management capabilities integrated with SEN's fixed mobile convergence (FMC) technology that will enable businesses "to vastly simplify the management of a hugely diversified communications infrastructure...[and] effectively manage operations such as inventory and expenses, logistics, mobile devices and applications."

Specifically Sybase's Afaria will be fully embedded into the SEN HiPath MobileConnect V2.3, software that "seamlessly unifies fixed enterprise VoIP, VoWLAN and cellular mobility."

Afaria is Sybase iAnywhere's mobile device management and security product designed to ensure that mobile data and devices are up-to-date, reliable, secure and encrypted. Features include over-the-air device provisioning, inventory and configuration, software deployment and updating, data backup and recovery, process automation and scripting, data backup, power-on password protection, data-on-device encryption, data fading and lockdown, mobile remote control, anti-virus and firewall, remote 'kill' and data wipe/.

The combination wil consist of a MobileConnect Appliance and MobileConnect Client. The appliance will be located at the central site and sitting on the wired network between the WLAN and the SIP PBX. This will continuously monitor and manage mobile user sessions regardless of whether they are on the corporate or public network. The MobileConnect client software will reside on the dual-mode handset and will work with the MobileConnect Appliance to navigate enterprise-cellular exchange.

Siemens Enterprise Communications is now only 50 percent owned by Siemens, the other 50 percent is held by Gores Group.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
