Take a Network Break! Multi-cloud networking gets two new competitors as Fortinet extends its SD-WAN capabilities to link up public clouds, while startup Arrcus announces new multi-cloud networking software as well as a virtual distributed router. Fortinet also acquires cloud-based security provider OPAQ to bolster its SASE offering.
ASIC maker Innovium scoops up an additional $170 million in venture funding to drive production of its Teralynx switching silicon, Canadian SD-WAN provider Adaptive buys Elfiq Networks from Martello, and U.S. telecom carriers are shutting down older 2G and 3G networks.
Intel reports its second-quarter 2020 fiscal results, and Greg and Drew discuss whether the Internet has morphed from a proper to a common noun and should therefore be lower-cased.
