re: Mellanox to open source Ethernet software

They make their money on the hardware that they sell and the ASICs in there are fairly specific to them. Opening up their software stack is hardly a big step, most companies don't do it because their products can easily be cloned by nefarious manufacturers (this is quite common in China). If you have such a secure position that no one can copy your hardware (e.g Juniper & Cisco won't), then you can do this with impunity. If this software actually helped commoditise the high end product then I would be happy, but I doubt it will.

How so? Personally, I don't believe this initiative will upset Ether-giants such as Cisco, etc. but I see them trying.

they seem to have missed the point.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
