Rising on the back of its accelerating DOCSIS 3.1 deployments, Cox Communications now offers 1-gig broadband service to 40% of the customers in its footprint, a marked improvement from a year ago.
Making the announcement late Tuesday at CES, where the cableco is providing both wired and wireless broadband services at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Cox Communications Inc. said its gigabit rollout pace will keep picking up now that it's deploying DOCSIS 3.1 over its hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) wires. Previously, the company relied primarily on deploying fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks to new housing developments to offer its "Gigablast" service.
IPsec is an important security technology for virtually all communication service providers (CSPs). CSP requirements for IPsec are shifting away from proprietary gateways due to cost and other factors like vendor lock-in. CSPs now require high-performance IPsec on general-propose x86 servers as this move opens up their business to more vendors, and gives them greater control of their network, at a lower cost basis. CSPs are looking for IPsec vendor solutions where they can deliver server configuration options, which achieve their requirements for deployment in the central office as well as data center environments. This webinar will discuss IPsec performance on x86 COTS servers, covering:
Use cases for IPsec, including high-throughput data center interconnect, enterprise VPN and mobile backhaul
How high-volume enterprise IT economics can support a new cost model for high-performance IPsec
Brand-new performance test results showing IPsec on COTS can offer over 120 Gbit/s of bidirectional throughput on industry standard servers
The importance of selecting the right server to ensure high performance and manageability of CSP networks whether in the CO or the DC
