Where Does SDN Fit In Edge Computing Architecture?
SearchNetworking, November 26th, 2018
"SDN and edge computing can work together to apply data processing decisions that make better use of network links and bandwidth, especially when it comes to edge versus cloud...

Edge computing is the concept of pushing data processing to the edge of the network -- closest to where the data is generated. The idea of an edge computing architecture is to use an edge device's computational power, so data doesn't always have to be uploaded to a private data center or a cloud service provider's network to be processed..."

Higher Speed Ethernet Requirements Continue To Grow
InformationWeek, November 27th, 2018
"A wide variety of use cases drives demand for Ethernet speeds exceeding 100 Gigabit. In response, the industry is racing to deploy new signaling types to achieve these higher data rates.

Once data centers were the primary driver for higher Ethernet speeds; today applications are playing an ever-increasing role in defining new Ethernet incarnations. The need for Ethernet speeds exceeding 100 Gigabit is being driven by exponentially increasing capacity demands across the board in a wide variety of use cases. In response, the industry is moving rapidly to deploy new signaling types to achieve these higher data rates..."
