'... I've done further digging (by no means exhaustive) and can't find anything in the trades or literature corroborating the larger message behind the release: "Putting the Internet on an energy diet." '

— Same here. That was what triggered my query to you. That fact must be weighed against the company's origins, genetics and bona fides.

'Since this is something that directly touches on my own areas of interest, I'll do a more exhaustive search. and call the company sometime this week and ask for clarifications. One way or the other, I'll get back here with my finding.'


— There'll be more discerning questions (and likelihood of answers) thru you than via muggles like me.

'The more I think about this claim, the more unlikely it seems.'

— Yes. Probably time and attention has been captured by marketing and hype. But, maybe not. Looking forward to your evaluation.

Mobile vendors used money losing Managed Services contracts to block changes in the network. Operators shed thousands of employees to them to concentrate on their business. Both were happy. It worked as long of the profits of selling SW and HW subsidized Managed Services. This is ending now.

Because of the 3GPP.
That is why out of an almost infinite number of possibilities that technology avails itself to, we end up with only two choices?

This is communism.

OTT is capitalism

What happened when "Big Content moved closer"
Two huge impacts from Big Content moving closer to where the customers are:

1) It broke the bottleneck and data consumption in the fiber metro loops (Datacenter to Consumer) skyrocketed and keep going up

2) As the users experienced faster downloadings, their perceptions changed.

>>The international Cert group, based at Carnegie Mellon University, informed technology companies of the flaw on 28 August, meaning that most have had around a month and a half to implement a fix. The Guardian has asked Apple, Google, Microsoft and Linksys the status of their patches. Google said: “We’re aware of the issue, and we will be patching any affected devices in the coming weeks.” No other vendor has replied at press time.<<

Microsoft distributed the patch last week

Hi elmat,

Years ago I wrote here about the data center scaling pendulum swinging back. Well we're not seeing that entirely, but a portion of new installations are expressly designed to be close to users and small. Just as you discussed in your LI post. This PR from Clareon Fiber Networks, below, should interest you.

Cleareon Fiber Networks Acquires NYC-based Data Center Operations

Newly acquired data center assets bring Cleareon’s product suite to the “intelligent edge” of network capability and service options.

Which is more unusual? That Google did mention something? Or, that the other vendors didn't?

Related, given they've had almost two full months to act on it, what are the odds that the other vendors actually did nothing?
