Vyatta has network virtualization, software defined networking (SDN) and cloud computing platforms that Brocade will couple with its Ethernet fabric architecture.
It launches Ethernet switch and new enhancements to meet rising trend toward software-defined networks and expects service producers to lead adoption--though, those in Asia-pacific will largely adopt a wait-and-see approach.
Brocade brought out a new switch family on Monday as part of its Brocade One converged datacentre strategy.First announced in June, the new VDX switches come in two variants and combine 10Gb Fibre-channel over Ethernet (FCoE) networking technology with a Brocade-developed software layer called Virtual Cluster Switching (VCS).
As industry players unveil connectivity plans for Singapore's national broadband network, analyst notes value-add services will be differentiator going forward while observers say initial adoption to be slow.
NComputing's X300 provides a cost-effective way to hang up to six terminals off a single desktop PC using low-power, secure, easy to administer and quiet access terminals. It's not for power users, but is well suited to schools, business workgroups, libraries, internet cafés and suchlike.

ALL PCs with the Centrino logo or any computer using an Intel Wireless Ethernet adapter must update their PROSet software and drivers found here or your computer can be remotely hijacked. An update was released earlier this month but that version was found to leak memory and cause PC slowdown. It is absolutely critical for IT departments and individual users to update their PROSet software and drivers. Get tips and links for the update here!

SEATTLE--Hardware designers should feel free to re-use existing plug-in methods originally designed for tiny storage devices but also useful for more sophisticated devices, said Jeremy Cahill, a program manager with Microsoft's operating system team. Memory stick, CompactFlash and Secure Digital all were designed as simple ways to plug flash memory into small gadgets such as handheld computers or digital cameras, but those interfaces also can be recycled for a new generation of devices, including Bluetooth and 802.11b wireless communications systems, global positioning system (GPS) receivers, modems, digital cameras and Ethernet adapters, he said at Microsoft's WinHEC conference for hardware engineers. Microsoft's advice is to also recycle connection software such as Universal Serial Bus or IEEE 1394 "Firewire" to make it easier to support such devices in Windows, Cahill said Tuesday. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
Two companies backing the InfiniBand standard have taken steps to move the high-speed networking technology closer to reality, the companies announced Tuesday at the Intel Developer Forum. Chipmaker Mellanox has revamped the Beowulf technique for making cheap supercomputers, using InfiniBand connections between computers instead of the Ethernet network that prevails today. The system uses the Message Passing Interface (MPI) communication standard common in Beowulf clusters. The software ran on Mellanox's Nitro computer, which has 16 thin server "blades" in a single 7-inch-thick cabinet. Also Tuesday, Banderacom announced new product kits to help companies use its InfiniBand chip designs. One is for fiber-optic connections to the current "1x" version of InfiniBand; the other is for the second-generation "4x" version with copper wire connections, the company said. Products with InfiniBand 4x connections are expected in 2003, the company said. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
Nortel Networks on Monday announced new gear and software upgrades aimed at reducing operating costs for its telecommunications carrier customers. The Nortel hardware comprises two new optical boxes that handle Ethernet traffic in urban areas. The Optera Metro 1200 usually sits at a customer location like a large business or office building and sends or receives traffic to the Optera Metro 8000, which sits at a telecommunications carrier's central office. Nortel has also upgraded the software on its Optera Metro 3500 gear to work with the other two boxes. Nortel says that these Ethernet products can handle traffic that run on a variety of protocols so that carriers can guarantee the same level of network reliability to their customers regardless of the underlying technology that operates the network. The gear will also help carriers provide services like VPNs (virtual private networks) and VoIP (voice-over-IP) to businesses. The Canada-based company adds that the equipment helps reduce costs because it allows carriers to simplify their networks and requires less time and know-how to connect a customer. --Sam Ames, Special to ZDNet News
Today's lineup includes a compatibility fix for AppleShare IP; new Gigabit Ethernet adapters from Asante; QuickMovie 1.3, the latest version of Chaotic Software's movie-making software; and an updated keyboard-control utility from Mac Unicorn.
Lucent Technologies last week helped fuel a surprising trend toward private optical networks that could set today's managed service model on its ear.Lucent introduced OptiStar, network storage adapter cards and software designed to connect servers directly to an optical network and thus speed and simplify the process of connecting Gigabit Ethernet, Fiber Channel or other networks over the wide area.
