World’s First Deployment of Faucet with NoviFlow’s NoviWare NOS and P4-Programmable Terabit Scale Forwarding Plane with Barefoot Tofino-Powered Switch at SC18

By deploying Faucet on Barefoot Tofino, NoviFlow is proving that Faucet provides a compelling new SDN option for existing and greenfield networks with unprecedented price performance and flexibility.”

— Dominique Jodoin, President, and CEO of NoviFlow

DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, November 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — NoviFlow® Inc., a leading vendor of high-performance SDN network operating software (NOS), cybersecurity middleware and programmable network solutions, today announced that it has deployed its NoviWare NOS on Barefoot Networks’ P4-programmable Barefoot Tofino™-based 6.5 Tbps switches with the Faucet open source OpenFlow controller as part of SCinet, the SC Conference's dedicated high-capacity network.

Faucet moves network control functions (like routing protocols, neighbor discovery, and switching algorithms) to vendor independent server-based software, versus traditional router or switch embedded firmware, where those functions are easy to manage, test, and extend with modern systems management best practices and tools. Faucet controls OpenFlow compatible hardware, including switches using the 6.5 Tbps Barefoot Tofino networking chip with NoviFlow’s NoviWare NOS. Features of Faucet include:
• VLANs
• IPv4 and IPv6 support
• Static and BGP routing
• Flexible port and VLAN based Access Control Lists
• Port mirroring
• Vendor neutral stacking of OpenFlow switches
• Policy-based forwarding to offload processing to external systems (E.g., 802.1x via hostapd)

• Grafana-based dashboards for monitoring
• Prometheus integration for monitoring and instrumentation of FAUCET
• Influxdb support for time-series OpenFlow port statistics
• Comprehensive test suite

Faucet has been deployed in production around the world. Some of the sites include REANNZ, AARNet, ESnet, Victoria University of Wellington, The University of Tokyo, WIDE Project, Toulouse Internet Exchange and WAND Group Waikato University.

This year, Faucet will be deployed as part of SCinet, the dedicated high-capacity network for the SC Conference, designed and built by volunteer experts from industry, academia, and government. Planning begins more than a year in advance of each SC Conference and culminates in a high-intensity installation that, for the duration of the conference, is the fastest and most powerful network in the world. NoviFlow’s NoviWare Network Operating System, the first commercially deployed SDN NOS for P4-programmable Barefoot Tofino-based Ethernet switches, will be running on Tofino-based hardware in the Faucet controlled part of SCinet. NoviWare is the SDN industry’s most complete and highest performance implementation of the OpenFlow 1.3/1.4/1.5 standard for use in switches, cybersecurity solutions, WAN IP/MPLS routers, network and VNF acceleration platforms, and other high-bandwidth data plans.

“Barefoot is pleased to see NoviFlow create a high-performance forwarding plane for Faucet features using Barefoot Tofino and the Barefoot P4 Studio Software Development Environment, enabling a switching platform to meet the stringent performance requirements of SC18’s SCinet,” said Arkadiy Shapiro, Product Line Manager, Core Software and Solution Partnerships at Barefoot Networks. “NoviFlow’s expertise in P4 and ability to leverage open source projects uniquely positions them to bring to market differentiated solutions for next-generation networks.”

According to Richard Nelson, Co-chair of the Faucet Foundation: “NoviFlow, a founding member of the Faucet Foundation, is a pioneer in programmable match-action pipelines. We see the deployment in SCinet of Faucet with Tofino hardware running NoviFlow’s NoviWare as an expression of confidence in the Faucet Controller, our organization, and in our efforts to foster an efficient, flexible and cost-effective Open Source SDN-controller solution.”

Says Dominique Jodoin, President, and CEO of NoviFlow: “NoviFlow’s participation in Faucet is part of our ongoing commitment to ensure that our products support the widest range of Open Source OpenFlow controllers, and the use cases and usage models that each one enables. This commitment to openness has played a great part in NoviFlow’s products being chosen by educational institutions and national research networks around the globe including AARN, CISRO, FIU, KTH, NCSU, PSCNC, SURFNet, UNSW amongst many others. By deploying Faucet on Barefoot Tofino at SC18, NoviFlow is proving that in a world where fluid and flexible information technologies are increasingly the key to success, Faucet provides a compelling new SDN-based option for both existing and greenfield networks, with unprecedented price performance and flexibility.”

The Faucet OpenFlow Controller running on NoviWare/Tofino-powered switches will be featured in the SCinet at SC18, Nov. 12-16, 2018 in Dallas, Texas.

The Piano Legend Has Introduced a Remarkable Educational Technology APP that Parents, Teachers and Students Can Use to Blend Math With Music

This app is my contribution for learning music and math as the kids I teach know I’ve been in their shoes, that’s why the students are attracted to it.”

— Marcus Blackwell, Jr. CEO and Founder of Make Music Count

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Make Music Count has proudly announced that it is blending music with math like never before through its sensational new smartphone application. The app is now available for downloading on Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store for iOS and Android users worldwide making learning math through music more convenient than ever before.

The app has been designed to excite students about learning mathematics, creating a major buzz as parents, teachers and students can use the app at home as well. The app takes innovation and piano playing to the next level and uses STEAM learning to its full potential.

“Make Music Count is a next generation curriculum that will change lives and serve as an example of how we should think outside the box in order to properly teach children,” said Marcus Blackwell, Jr. the CEO and Founder of Make Music Count. “We take current tunes the kids are listening to and create math problems to solve for each note. When the song is played right, the math problem is correct” he added. According to Blackwell, the Make Music Count program is being used in more than 60+ schools around the country and is a method that can break down the barrier that prevents students from learning math.

Blackwell is a living legend in the music industry, his piano skills were inspired by the church and his formal training at school. He started playing piano at the age of five years of age and through the years, even though he was a good student, he did have a math phobia. “This app is my contribution for learning music and math as the kids I teach know I’ve been in their shoes, that’s why the students are attracted to it,” he said.

Blackwell is a graduate Morehouse College with a B.S. in Mathematics and worked for GE Energy as a Lead Modeling Analyst while serving as the Music Director and pianist at Elizabeth Baptist Church.

“Make Music Count was created after I realized how I learned to play the piano,” said Blackwell. “As a pianist and organist who plays music by ear, I realized I built my music chords by applying mathematics versus simply listening and playing what I heard,” he added.

According to the Blackwell, learning music through math is more engaging, interesting, and exciting for the students. Another amazing fact about this inspiring initiative is that this new curriculum sees an average of 28% increase in math test scores.

Some of the key features and benefits of this new app are that it is excellent for students with special needs and dyslexia. Similarly, learning math and solving problems enhances the mental growth of the student and makes them smarter and more active. This app is one of the fastest ways to learn piano and be able to play like a professional. The Educational Technology (EdTech) application is basically a 2 for one application, which is all about building confidence and performance.

“We are proudly offering this game-changing app for schools to license and use during the school day as a math and music supplement,” said Blackwell. “Parents, teachers and students can download the app on any device and use at home too,” he added.

With Friendcentive, You Can Buy With a Little Help From Your Friends

Friendcentive lets shoppers take home great items for just $1

New app offers anything for $1 – if you can convince people to vote for your pitch

This is a chance for online shoppers to show off their ‘convince me’ skills”

— Art Douglas, Friendcentive Spokesperson

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA, USA, November 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new app called Friendcentive is rewarding clever online bargain-hunters by offering them the chance to purchase any item for $1 – if they can convince enough of the other prospective buyers to vote for them to have it.

Users join campaigns for items they want to purchase (like shoes, laptops or electronics) by paying $1 for a pitch. When enough pitches have been entered to pay for the item, all the buyers get to vote on whose pitch they like the best (obviously, they can’t vote for themselves). The pitch with the most votes wins the prize, and everyone else pays the rest of the cost.

“This is a chance for online shoppers to show off their ‘convince me’ skills,” says Friendcentive spokesperson Art Douglas. “You want that laptop? Convince 500 other buyers that you’re the one who should get it. It’s an absolute blast, and you can come away with some amazing items for only a dollar.”

So, what happens when multiple pitches receive the same answer? Well, Douglas says that’s when the finalists get to really turn on the charm. If more than 6 participants have the same number of votes, a new round of voting begins to pick a clear winner. If fewer than 6 participants have the same number of votes, they get to turn to social media to help them round up enough votes to win.

“Friendcentive combines the excitement of a pitch contest with the viral components of other crowdsourcing platforms,” says Douglas. “If you make a social voting round, you start asking your social network to join you in voting for your pitch. Get enough of your friends and family to hop on the cause, and that laptop/game system/pair of sneakers is yours for a dollar.”

Friendcentive is currently available for download on the Google Play Store and will soon be released in the Apple Store. For more information about the app, go to www.friendcentive.com. Art Douglas is available for interviews. To schedule an interview, contact support@friendcentive.com.

About Friendcentive:

Friendcentive combines the fun and community of crowdsourcing, the excitement of an online auction, and the creativity of a pitch contest into one incredibly entertaining and lucrative buying experience, where participants can purchase anything they want for a good pitch and a dollar. More information is available at www.friendcentive.com.

Dov Bechhofer Discusses Hydrogen Fuel Cells and Their Potential in Automobiles

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Computer Engineer Dov Bechhofer reflects on hydrogen fuel cell technology and how we have the potential to integrate it into our automobiles as a way to replace fossil fuels.

Fuel cells produce electrical energy that can be used to power heavy machinery without the harmful emissions we’re used to. Scientists have already applied fuel cell technology to power space shuttles, helping astronauts break the atmosphere and reach space while fighting against the pull of Earth’s gravity.

Although fuel cells are used today in select applications, Dov Bechhofer is hopeful that this revolutionary technology will make more mainstream and consumer-focused appearances in the future.

“The world is run on only around 20% of renewable energy right now. Automobiles account for a tremendous portion of air pollution, and if we can implement more clean energy into our cars, our environment would be much better off,” says Dov Bechhofer

Fuel cells are engine-like machines that can produce clean energy using hydrogen and oxygen (the basic components of water) to convert chemical energy into electricity. That electricity can then be used to power engines and act as an electrical generator. Already, scientists use fuel cells in cold, remote places such as in South Pole research centers to create energy where there’s little (if any).

A fuel cell is a stable machine without any need for moving parts unlike traditional engines. This makes it especially useful on space crafts where violent vibrations may undo vehicle integrity. Engineers like Dov Bechhofer hope to see that same space tech applied to automobiles on a large scale to help battery-powered cars in their fight to leave fossil fuels in the past.

Recently, scientists have tested out fuel cell technology in large vehicles such as buses, determining if they are a stable addition to mass public transportation systems. Car buyers may stumble across rare vehicles that already use fuel cell technology (such as the Hyundai ix35 FCEV and the Toyota Mirai) to test out on their own.

“There are a few restrictions that stop scientists from putting fuel cell technology into more widespread use, and the most notable is the cost of parts,” says Dov Bechhofer.

While fuel cells are stable and non-moving machines, the tremendous heat they produce is what’s holding most plans of implementation back. The materials needed to keep up the engine while producing that much heat are extremely expensive and not at all affordable for the average consumer. But scientists are working hard to find the happy medium between lowering the heat production and constructing engines with cheaper but suitable materials.

The energy produced from fuel cells are much kinder on the environment and atmosphere since the only byproduct––in most cases––is water. Along with other types of renewable energy being used today (such as wind turbines and solar panels), fuel cells are expected to phase out fossil fuels within the next few generations and help keep our planet clean for the generations after that.
