The dream of one day being able to make use of 40Gbps Ethernet for enterprise networks cmes one step closer to being reality as infrastructure solutions leader CommScope successfully demonstrated the technical feasibility of Category 8 cabling for enterprise networks.
The proof-of-concept demonstration made use of prototype Category 8 RJ-45 connectors and copper twisted pair cables, all designed in CommScope's lab. The demonstration took place at the recent International Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.3 NGBASE-T study group meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.
Enterprise security rarely ranks in the top ten favourite programming related disciplines for many software application developers who simply want to build, construct, enhance and deploy as their main priority goals.
But where vulnerabilities are locked down, Security Policy Management (SPM) company Tufin argues that not every enterprise eco-system needs to be so complex that application deployment is rendered impossible.
A few days ago, I had the pleasure of being involved in an interesting security discussion on Twitter. If you tuned into the middle of the conversation, it appeared to be about VPNs and whether they were a valid way of connecting to the enterprise with a mobile app.
Presenting the device February 8, in the Institute of Physics and German Physical Society's New Journal of Physics, it has been described as the "building block of future quantum networks."
In an optical quantum network, information is carried between points by photons -- the basic unit of light. There is a huge potential for this type of network in the field of quantum computing and could enable computers that are millions of times faster at solving certain problems than what we are used to today.
A serious flaw in the operating system running Juniper routers can make them crash and reboot, the network equipment vendor has advised.
By sending a specially crafted transmission control protocol (TCP) packet to a listening port on a Juniper Routing Engine, it's possible to make the kernel in JunOS crash, and cause them to swich over or reboot.
