Reimagining SDN with Next-Gen White Box Technology

Since 2011, software-defined networking (SDN) has revolutionized how data centers, service providers and other enterprises manage and control their networks. By separating decisions about where traffic goes on the network from how it is forwarded, network administrators can control traffic directly from a centralized console without manually reconfiguring individual switches or routers. As a result, SDN can provide flexible and scalable network architectures for companies needing to adapt to the changing demands of modern applications.

The Ins and Outs of Transimpedance Amplifiers

At its most basic level, an optical communication system uses a transmitter to encode a message into an optical signal; a channel, to carry that signal to a destination; and a receiver, to turn the signal back into its original, readable form.
