Author: Joanna Styczen, Technical Writing Director at iMiller Public Relations

content is king concept

Twenty years ago, Bill Gates wrote in an article titled, “Content is King,” that “Those who succeed will propel the Internet forward as a marketplace of ideas, experiences, and products —a marketplace of content.”

But at what point does content drive meaningful audience engagement — a positive exchange of valuable information between business-to-business or business-to-consumers — or fail to elicit attention and become lost in a cacophony of irrelevancy? As many companies seek to meet self-imposed content quotas in an effort to engage customers, they walk a fine line between initiating worthwhile dialogue and over-saturating their audiences with mediocre messaging.

Progress, But Still Far to Go for Women in Tech & Telecom

Single red 3D people figure in group of white figures.A generation ago, a popular cigarette advertising campaign targeted at professional women
appeared across glossy magazines and television. Condescendingly, but consistent with the prevailing attitudes of the times concerning gender roles, its tagline and jingle proclaimed, “You’ve come a long way, baby.” Just how far women have come in the traditionally male-dominated technology and telecommunications sectors, and the current state of affairs concerning their leadership roles at major companies around the world, is the subject of a thought- provoking article in a recent issue of Global Telecoms Business.

LINX deploy multi-100Gig DWDM over 57km using HUBER+SUHNER Cube Optics

LINX LogoThe London Internet Exchange (LINX) recently expanded their metro optical network by deploying a simple 100Gig DWDM based solution from HUBER+SUHNER Cube Optics AG.

LINX were seeing increased need for more and more low latency and high bandwidth between their data centers around London. LINX were also keen to utilise the switch/router vendors’ native 100G ports, if possible, whilst also aiming to keep the transport portion of the network as simple as possible. Although there were many options from large DWDM vendors, the investment costs there were just too high.

In the year of some of the most highly publicized security breaches, availability trumped security. When your application isn’t available, all else becomes less important.

Fronthaul: That’s A New One to Me – Don’t You Mean Backhaul?

ZenFiSo, what exactly is “fronthaul”? The short answer to that question is that fronthaul is essentially a fiber distribution network that provides connectivity between Remote Radio Heads (RRHs) in the field to the Base Band Units (BBUs) through a protocol known as Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI).  Neutral hosts are excited about this new network function because it provides connectivity to more locations; carriers are excited because it lowers CapEx on the base station; network operators are excited because it increases leased lines; and end-users are pumped because it enables more Shark Tank episodes while waiting for the bus.
