TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company and an industry pioneer in
undersea communications technology, today announces the commencement of
the new Hibernia Express submarine cable system. The 4,600 km cable will
provide the lowest-latency fiber-optic path between New York and London,
connecting Halifax, Nova Scotia and Brean, UK, with terrestrial fiber to
extend connectivity to the major metro areas.
Hibernia Express will initially launch with 100 Gbps transmission
capacity using TE SubCom’s C100 SLTE platform. It will be a 6-fiber-pair
submarine cable, with a portion of the fibers optimized for lowest
latency and a portion optimized for 100x100 Gbps design capacity. The
total cross-sectional design capacity of the cable will be over 53 Tbps.
“Having a unique, low latency route combined with increased capacity
allows Hibernia Express to offer unmatched services to trans-Atlantic
connectivity customers,” said Bjarni Thorvardarson of Hibernia Networks.
“As a pillar of the submarine cable industry, we are confident that TE
SubCom will deliver a highly advanced cable system and world-class
implementation. We’re thrilled to have reached this critical point in
the deployment of Hibernia Express.”
“Our company’s technology portfolio and extensive trans-Atlantic
installation experience make us an ideal supplier for the Hibernia
Express system,” said John Mitchell, President, TE Subcom. “We’re
looking forward to tackling the special challenges of this unique
project and supplying the newest high capacity, low latency cable across

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures.
Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
