Driving Innovation in 2022 and Beyond

As we kick off a new year, we at Equinix find ourselves looking back and forward at the same time, much like the Greek god Janus for which the month of January is named. We’re excited to recap the key advancements we’ve made in 2021, and we’re also looking ahead to what new innovations will mean for our customers in 2022 and in the years to come. As the Global Interconnection Index (GXI) Volume 5 shows, we are living in a world defined by digital. The digital leaders that have optimized every aspect of their infrastructure—across the digital core, edge…

5G deployment near US airports slowed for now

5G deployments are proceeding around the country, albeit more slowly, after a partial agreement between the FCC and the FAA about the potential danger of 5G transmissions generated too strong and too close to airports on bandwidths adjacent to the spectrum used by airplane altimeters.

President Biden announced that Verizon and AT&T had agreed to slow deployments of 5G around major airports after consultation with the Department of Transportation, in order to assuage concerns over air travel safety.

At issue is potential interference between newly opened 5G spectrum in the 3.7GHz range and radioaltimeter equipment on older aircraft. While there’s some separation between the 3.7GHz 5G signals, which top out at 3.98GHz, and the bottom of the 4.2GHz range used by the avionics equipment, the FAA and the airline industry remain concerned over potential interference that, theoretically, could prevent affected aircraft from landing safely in low-visibility conditions.

6G exploratory group to be led by wireless heavyweights

The FCC has named 44 people to a technological advisory council tasked with exploring the possibilities of 6G wireless connectivity, a large proportion of the council’s members being drawn from the ranks of the country’s biggest networking-technology corporations.

The chair of the committee will be a former Qualcomm executive, Dean Brenner. Intel, Cisco, Comcast, Microsoft, Nokia, Ericsson, and all of the major mobile operators are also represented on the commission’s Technological Advisory Council (TAC). Also representatived are large trade associations and academia.

FCC chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said that leadership in the 6G realm has to be a priority for the US.

Sample Lab: RSVP TE on Junos

It’s amazing how creative networking engineers become once they have the basic tools to get the job done a bit quicker. Last week Pete Crocker published the largest topology I’ve seen built with netsim-tools so far: a 13-router lab running RSVP TE to transport IP traffic between external autonomous systems1.
