Lumen is first in the industry to achieve a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ device

Source: PR Newswire (US)
Custom-developed device provides Quantum Fiber customers with next-gen Wi-Fi® experience

DENVER, Jan. 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- At the start of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2024, the Wi-Fi Alliance® announced Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN) has received Wi-Fi 7 certifications for two wireless devices. Lumen is the first company in the industry to achieve a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ device with its custom-developed solution. Lumen designed its devices for its Quantum Fiber residential and small business customers to deliver faster speeds and better coverage than Wi-Fi 6/6E.

Lumen is the first company in the industry to achieve a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7™ device

"We are proud that our Wi-Fi 7 devices are the first certified by Wi-Fi Alliance," said Maxine Moreau, Lumen president of Mass Markets. "This demonstrates our commitment to deliver the best Wi-Fi solutions to our customers as we continue to innovate for growth. Our Wi-Fi 7 devices offer faster speeds than Wi-Fi 6/6E, low latency, and amazing coverage allowing users to enjoy the next generation of Wi-Fi applications and services."

Wi-Fi Alliance certified two Lumen Wi-Fi 7 devices:

The W1700K is a desk or wall mount device that covers 90% of homes with higher data capacity than Wi-Fi 6/6E. It provides reliable and secure Wi-Fi 7 connectivity throughout the home or office.

The W1701K is a fully compliant wall plug-in device that extends the Wi-Fi 7 coverage throughout larger areas of the home or business to reduce dead zones.
Lumen's solution includes MediaTek's Smart Link-Dispatch technology, an advanced QOS/QOE feature built into the Wi-Fi radio, enhancing application performance with high-bandwidth and low-latency traffic in real-world settings.

Lumen's Quantum Fiber Wi-Fi 7 solution is an FCC 6GHz Standard Power (6SD) class device. The 6SD equipment class enables higher transmit power for increased data throughput or twice the range as compared to the theoretical indoor standard (6ID). With the 6GHz channel and the higher power setting, these devices wirelessly unlock the full power of the Quantum Fiber high speed product up to 8 gigabits per second, helping to enable higher data rates throughout a home or business.

Both devices also support cloud-based Digital Twin technology and use the carrier grade OpenWRT standard with Wi-Fi EasyMesh™ and prplMesh enabling real time orchestration and advanced device management capabilities.

Quantum Fiber installed its first customer Wi-Fi 7 device in December. Wi-Fi 7 will be available to new Quantum Fiber customers later this month. Quantum Fiber is available to homes and small businesses in parts of 16 states.

Lumen will showcase its new wireless technology at CES in the Smart Home section #35-209.

For more information about Quantum Fiber and Wi-Fi 7 go to www.quantumfiber.com/wifi7.

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 7TM is a trademark of Wi-Fi Alliance®. Wi-Fi® is a registered trademark of Wi-Fi Alliance®.

Additional Information:

The benefits of Quantum Fiber's unique Wi-Fi 7 capable devices:

Superior Coverage: One device covers up to 90% of a home based on square footprint, significantly reducing the need for additional nodes.
Multi-User Capability: Supports multiple users and gigabit bandwidth demands with 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz radios working together for high-speed data transmission, minimizing the need to run ethernet cable throughout home.
Latency and Speed: A significant improvement from Wi-Fi 6/6E technology, offering less than 3 milliseconds of latency and seamless integration with Quantum Fiber's multi-gig network with symmetrical speeds up to 8 Gbps.
Customer Experience: This Wi-Fi 7 device is part of Quantum Fiber's 360 Wi-Fi capabilities and is fully integrated and controlled through the Quantum Fiber app. The app will unlock advanced parental controls, Wi-Fi performance diagnostics, and includes a first-rate security suite.
High-Performance Applications: Ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications like 8K video streaming, cloud gaming, virtual reality, and large multimedia file transfers.
Advanced Technology: Contains a built-in GPS chip, enhancing 6GHz range performance in line with upcoming FCC specifications.
Cloud Based Digital Twin enabled: Built on carrier grade Open WRT standard with EasyMesh & prplMesh with real time orchestration and advanced level of device management.

Lumen shakes up telecom industry with Network-as-a-Service offering

Source: PR Newswire (US)
Customers dream of fast, flexible networking; Lumen now delivers in minutes

DENVER, July 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN) launched its flagship capability on its Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform today. It's the first important step toward the company's bold vision to disrupt the telecom industry. By offering customers radical flexibility in how they buy, use, and manage networking services, Lumen is cloudifying traditional telecom.

"We have been preparing for this moment for a long time, building a world-class telecom network with state-of-the-art fiber, broad coverage and unsurpassed route diversity and scalability," said Kate Johnson, Lumen CEO. "Lumen's Network-as-a-Service offering takes the next step to deliver on our customers' networking dreams: the ability to fire up any port, with any service, at any time. It's your network, your way."

The Lumen NaaS Vision

Lumen® Internet On-Demand is the first and flagship service added to the Lumen NaaS platform, starting with limited availability. Over time, Lumen NaaS will expand to include security services, such as DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), SASE (Secure Access Service Edge), and Edge services. The platform's fully digital, consumption-based model will set a new standard for customer experience and expectations.

"Lumen is putting the customer at the center of our Network-as-a-Service platform, creating a cloud-like experience for buying, consuming, and managing our network services," said Andrew Dugan, Lumen CTO. "Businesses are looking for a dynamic, dedicated internet connection, but they want it from a reliable and flexible network. Unlike some Network-as-a-Service players, Lumen can deliver on this promise because we own and manage our network."

Delivering on the Customer Dream

"Lumen plays an important role in helping content providers move video content to AWS," said Evan Statton, Sr. Principal Architect in M&E at AWS. For example, Fox Sports was able to bring its live sports content to AWS by using an on-demand connection aligned with Lumen's Network-as-a-Service platform. We look forward to continued work with Lumen to help AWS customers achieve their live cloud production goals."

Customers win big with Lumen's NaaS experience. They will use a digital portal or APIs (Application Program Interface) to order Lumen Internet On-Demand and future services for instant internet connections to public data centers and port-enabled business locations. They can quickly assign an existing port at a new enterprise building, connecting them to Lumen's network. Once established, the digital experience begins, including:

A dedicated connection to one of the largest, most connected and secure networks in the world
Ability to scale capacity in minutes
Internet speeds from 100 Mbps to 10 Gbps
A consumption-based billing model; pay only for the time services are active, starting at hourly rates
Real-time visibility into service performance and network usage
Quick enablement of new capabilities
"Lumen has taken a pragmatic approach when it comes to understanding the evolving needs of the Network-as-a-Service market, in terms of matching user experience with capabilities offered," said Rohit Mehra, group vice president, Network and Telecommunications, IDC. "Using its high-capacity, global backbone network, Lumen Internet On-Demand delivers flexible network services for a customer-first approach. Lumen's commitment to providing an effortless operational experience holds promise for enterprises in terms of consuming, managing and upgrading their networks.

Aligning with Key Partners

Lumen NaaS will leverage a broad digital ecosystem of partners – including data center, cloud, technology, and managed service providers - to maximize impact and reach. Digital Realty is one of the first third-party data center providers to join the Lumen Network-as-a-Service Alliance Partner program. Joint customers can provision on-demand services using a digital portal or API in real-time and increase or decrease bandwidth as needed.

"We're delighted to be partnering with Lumen to redefine the enterprise digital transformation landscape," said Chris Sharp, CTO, Digital Realty. "Lumen's cutting-edge Network-as-a-Service solution combined with our global network of highly connected facilities and orchestration platform ServiceFabric™, empowers enterprises with on-demand, personalized experiences, revolutionizing the way networks are consumed and managed. This highlights our shared vision, as we unite to meet the evolving needs of our customers."

Lumen's new on-demand services will be updated and shared throughout the year. More information on Lumen Internet On-Demand can be found at https://www.lumen.com/en-us/networking/internet-on-demand.html.

Service providers, content providers and enterprises can now quickly and dynamically route network traffic between data centers

DENVER, June 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN) today announced a new network interconnection ecosystem called ExaSwitchβ„’, created in collaboration with Google and Microsoft. This platform empowers organizations with high bandwidth needs to route their traffic dynamically and quickly between networks, and without third-party intervention.

"The days of slow, legacy cross connects are over; ExaSwitch is the future of network interconnections."
"The days of slow, legacy cross connects are over; ExaSwitch is the future of network interconnections," said Andrew Dugan, Chief Technology Officer, Lumen. "Large network backbones no longer need a physical location to connect. Instead, optical switching will be used to establish high-capacity optical links between metro sites. And it's so much more than just internet peering; it's an on-demand network connection for quickly deploying needed capacity across all types of data traffic exchanges."

Current participants

This ExaSwitch project was created by the initial participants to route traffic between large internet and cloud networks. Early adopters include Lumen, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and an additional large cloud provider. The ExaSwitch ecosystem will continue to strengthen as additional participants join, making it easier to automate, scale and manage capacity between the members.

"We like the ease, speed and cost efficiency of performing interconnects to network partners directly from our main sites," said Steve Walter, Global VP of Network Operations, Google. "ExaSwitch provides an agile, on-demand platform using proven technology that achieves that."

"Creating a geographically distributed yet automated interconnection platform creates so many options to improve connectivity, resiliency, and speed to add capacity on to one's network," said Frank Rey, Partner, Azure Networking, Microsoft. "We are pleased at the opportunity ExaSwitch has to change the interconnection ecosystem."

How it works

The ExaSwitch administrator will install optical hardware at the preferred location for each participant, who will choose their own fiber source for connecting into ExaSwitch. When two participants agree to connect, they can join quickly through self-provisioning, or an API portal driven and managed by the administrator. The real-time capacity deployment allows them to easily order, modify and delete services as needed. Lumen is acting as the administrator for the initial deployments.

Key benefits

Participants use a self-service portal to configure and turn up connectivity with other participants much faster than they can now.
Connections are set up in 400G increments and can be consumed on demand in 100G increments, with each site capable of up to 25.6 Tbps of optical cross connects.
Participants will have the ability to connect their edge sites, data centers and central offices in major markets to gain diversity and save costs on cross connects.
"The ExaSwitch optical switching platform is an innovative on-demand ecosystem for automating, scaling and managing high-value interconnect services," said Courtney Monroe, VP of Telecommunications Research for IDC.

Carefully...buying some more VVR...as of "extra" dividend announced-


Read this...It May just be a return of capital...but...
the SP is still way below Net Asset Value (currently $4.22)
To me, its worth it...as once the Fed pauses...I expect SP to get closer to NAV..
Anyway, for minor risk, I like it better than any Bank Savings, CD, T-bond, or Money Market...as the dividends are Monthly, and the symbol can be sold/traded on any given market day...

Name of Closed-End Ticker Dividend Amount Per Share
Management Investment Company
Invesco Senior Income Trust VVR $0.12391
The Board of Trustees (the "Board") of Invesco Senior Income Trust (NYSE: VVR) (the "Fund") approved an increase in the monthly distribution amount payable to common shareholders pursuant to the Fund's Managed Distribution Plan (the "Plan"). Effective October 1, 2022, the Fund will pay its monthly dividend to common shareholders at a stated fixed monthly distribution amount of $0.032 per share.

The Plan is intended to provide shareholders with a consistent, but not guaranteed, periodic cash payment from the Fund, regardless of when or whether income is earned, or capital gains are realized. The Plan may have the effect of narrowing the discount between the Fund's market price and the net asset value ("NAV") of the Fund's common shares, but there is no assurance that the Plan will be effective in this regard.

If a Fund's investment income is not sufficient to cover the Fund's intended monthly distribution, the Fund will distribute long-term capital gains and/or return of capital in order to maintain its managed distribution level under its Plan. A Fund may at times distribute more than its income and net realized gains; therefore, a portion of the distribution may result in a return of capital.

Will add more LUMN before end of 2022

for those who miss dividend/yield...

I will share a symbol I hold/trade as opposed to a "savings account"...


Invesco has a Senior Notes fund V V R

It trades like a stock and pays a monthly dividend/distribution...

Currently trading at around a 10% discount to its Net Asset Value of $4.21

When the Fed nears the end of its tightening cycle..it should, IMO, move back up a bit...

as long as interest rates keep climbing...it may stay at these low levels...but

you get something back each month...


Hope this helps...
