Catalyst 8000 Edge Family

Networking Introducing the Catalyst 8000 Edge Family, Cisco’s New SD-WAN Platform We have been asking more of our networks lately. The cloud has become the operating platform for the new enterprise, while SASE, multicloud architectures, and edge applications add new levels of complexity. It’s time for us to revamp the WAN edge devices that handle the network traffic, to address these needs. At the same time we need to keep IT teams agile, so they can support resilient businesses. I am thus very proud to announce availability of an entire new line of edge devices, the Catalyst 8000 Edge Platforms and Catalyst Cellular Gateway. An upgrade path from several of Cisco’s ISR and ASR routers, the Catalyst 8000 line is built for SD-WAN, multicloud, security, and analytics — for managing traffic that is increasingly distributed across the cloud. The Catalyst 8000 family provides the security, performance, and agility our customers need. It will serve enterprises with seamless connectivity and consistent policy-based automation for all users, customers, and applications. On top of that, our new Catalyst Cellular Gateways will allow networks to add cellular connectivity – including…

New High-End Exynos Chipsets

Samsung developing two new high-end Exynos chipsets, one features AMD GPU It is rumored that Samsung will soon introduce the Exynos 2100 chipset and that it won’t be plagued by performance and power efficiency issues that plagued the Exynos 990. However, that isn’t the only processor that the South Korean smartphone giant is working on. The company reportedly has two more Exynos processors in the pipeline. The Exynos 2100, which is expected to be a part of the Galaxy S21, goes by the internal model number Exynos 9840. According to Ice Universe (@UniverseIce on Twitter), Samsung is working on the Exynos 9855 and the Exynos 9925. So, we can expect the Exynos 9855 to debut with the Galaxy S22 in 2022. The Exynos 9925 will reportedly feature AMD’s Radeon graphics, and we can expect it to be released only in 2023. However, some previous rumors had claimed that we could see an Exynos chipset with AMD graphics as soon as 2021, so we can only be certain after an official announcement from Samsung. Samsung had recently unveiled the Exynos 1080 processor with 5nm process, Cortex-A78 CPU cores, Cortex-A55 CPU cores, and the ARM Mali-G78 GPU. The Exynos 1080 is expected…

Emerging Technologies in Electronics That Will Change Our Future Electronic textiles (or smart clothing) are fabrics embedded with digital components and electronics to provide added value to the wearer. There are many other applications that rely on integrating electronics into fabrics, such as interior design technologies. This type of technology is considered revolutionary because it has the ability to do several things that conventional fabrics cannot, including conduct energy, communicate, transform, and grow. Future applications for smart clothing may be developed for health monitoring, tracking soldiers, and monitoring pilot. Personal and portable physiological monitoring,  communications, heating, and lighting can all benefit from this technology.
