Intel bides time on faster Thunderbolt connector - PC World 2 hours ago
As a company that draws more than 2 billion eyeballs per month, Facebook was a fitting harbinger of trends to come at an optical networking conference.The social networking goliath is lighting up its own optical fiber, deploying 100Gbps links in its data centers and looking towards emerging silicon photonics technology, Facebook Director of Technical Operations Najam Ahmad said on Monday at an Optical Society of America meeting held alongside the annual OFC (Optical Fiber Communications) Conference in San Francisco.Facebookâ€™s challenges mirror those of other enterprises and data center operators, with fast-growing data traffic and rapidly evolving network needs, but with 1.2 billion active monthly users, itâ€™s facing those issues sooner than some. Though his company is unique in some ways, Ahmadâ€™s comments in an on-stage interview may shed some light on the future of connectivity.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Intel's fastest connector lights up data transfers - PC World 2 hours ago
Intel could soon bring to market a faster version of its Thunderbolt connector technology with a throughput of 50Gbps, but the company is biding its time until there is a need for faster connectors.Thunderbolt technology connects computers to peripherals like external hard drives at much faster speeds than USB 3.0. Thunderbolt ports are found in Macs and select Windows PCs, but are more expensive than USB technology, which is found in most PCs that ship today.The latest iteration, Thunderbolt 2, transfers data at 20Gbps (bits per second). Intel is researching how to speed up Thunderbolt, but the company could potentially develop and deploy a faster connector for PCs based on silicon photonics technology, which combines silicon components with optical networking, said Mario Paniccia, Intel fellow and general manager of silicon photonics operations.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Microsoft's Surface Power Cover set to ship next week - PC World 4 hours ago
After more than a decade of research, Intelâ€™s new connector that uses light as a speedy way to shuffle data between computers is finally ready to replace slower copper cables.The MXC optical cables will be first implemented at the rack level and use light and lasers to move data between servers, storage, networking and other computing resources. The cables will transfer data at speeds of up to 1.6Tbps (bits per second), outpacing the throughput on copper cables used for networking in data centers.The cables are based on Intelâ€™s silicon photonics technology, which combines optical networking with silicon components. Component company U.S. Conec is now shipping MXC parts, paving the way for distributors to sell cables to server makers and data center companies. Corning, Tyco Electronics and Molex will sell MXC cables.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Floods that washed out rural roads in central Montana left hundreds of people stranded on Monday and forced the evacuation of 30 homes in one small town, as forecasts predicted more rain and snow that could worsen conditions in the region. Floods also threatened to inundate three towns in north-central Wyoming where vast ice formations blocked the flow of the Bighorn River and caused it to spill from its banks. In Montana, a network of dirt roads linking rural Montana neighborhoods and ranches outside of Roundup were submerged in water or washed out by Monday, making them impassable, said Tara Gates, volunteer with the Musselshell County Disaster and Emergency Services. Governor Steve Bullock declared a flood emergency, allowing him to mobilize Montana National Guard troops and direct other resources to affected communities, and local authorities scrambled to devise plans to deliver food and supplies to an estimated 400 people who were cut off by the flooding.

By Tom Ramstack and Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A leading District of Columbia businessman pleaded guilty on Monday to violating campaign finance laws in a case that has tarnished the U.S. capital's Democratic mayor and overshadowed his bid for a second term. Federal prosecutors had accused Jeffrey Thompson, once a major government contractor, of running a "shadow campaign" that funneled more than $660,000 through friends and relatives to Washington Mayor Vincent Gray's successful 2010 campaign, breaking campaign laws that forbid contributions of more than $25,000 by one person. "Mr. Gray agreed to keep Mr. Thompson's fundraising secret," Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Atkinson said. "The things that I've heard today are fabricated." Under the plea bargain Thompson reached with prosecutors, the U.S. Department of Justice agreed to waive the penalty for a heavier federal charge of conspiracy to violate federal campaign finance laws and submitting false filings to the Internal Revenue Service in exchange for his guilty plea and cooperation with the government.
