UPDATE — Cisco Accelerates Growth for Service Providers with New Silicon and Software for the 5G and Multicloud Era

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the world continues to embrace the reality of 5G and multicloud, service providers are experiencing disruptive growth and change that require new approaches to more efficiently build and cost-effectively manage critical IP networking infrastructure.

5G connections are expected to explode from 2.3 million in 2020 to more than 25 million in 2021 — more than 1000-percent growth1. Multicloud services are accelerating, driven by shifts in content, compute and cloud requirements. Nearly 850 zettabytes of data will be generated by all people, machines and things by 2021, up from 220 ZB in 20162.

How IP networks are architected and built through these transitions is critical for sustaining service provider profitability during this period of explosive traffic growth.

Enter Cisco
Cisco is focused on creating networks that anticipate and respond to customer needs and shifting market conditions in real time, based on closed-loop automation and advanced analytics capabilities.

Today the company is unveiling continued innovation for its flagship service provider edge routing platform to support its customers’ business transitions, offering more flexibility with new licensing models to purchase capacity on demand.

Cisco ASR 9000: Better, Stronger, Faster
In the past ten years, more than 4500 service provider, enterprise and public sector customers around the world have relied on the Cisco ASR 9000 edge routing platform to manage and deliver billions of connections over their networks.

Now the same edge routing platform thousands have grown to know and trust can carry them into the 5G and multicloud era with new automation software, a new networking processor powering high-density 100GE line cards to boost network performance, and enhancements to the IOS XR network operating system.

Continued Investment Protection with IOS XR Software Flexible Consumption Model
Service providers are building their IP infrastructures with end-to-end architecture evolution in mind to support multiple revenue-generating services, as well as preparing for inevitable shifts in traffic. To support these goals, Cisco is now offering network-wide pay-as-you-grow license pooling, allowing ports on the new-generation line cards to be activated on-demand, within deployed or new ASR 9000 chassis.

Customers no longer have to forecast capacity and purchase licenses on a site-by-site basis. Licenses can be dynamically allocated as across global networks, optimizing capex spend and simplifying capacity planning with a full network view.

Primed for Automation to Reduce Operational Expenditures
Powered by Cisco IOS XR software, the ASR 9000 is automation ready. Service providers can now take advantage of the Cisco Crosswork Network Automation portfolio, the industry’s most comprehensive closed-loop, mass-scale automation solution that embraces multi-vendor networks. Architecture plus automation now primes Cisco customers for the most optimal cost footprint with operational agility.

“With these advancements to the Cisco ASR platform, we are simplifying, automating and converging our networking technology for the 5G and multicloud era,” said Sumeet Arora, senior vice president of engineering, Service Provider Network Systems, Cisco. “We are committed to helping our customers deliver better experiences for their customers, enabling them to optimize the capex spend with an easy roadmap for network planning purchasing and optimization.”

Cisco is leading the disruption in the industry with its technology innovations in systems, silicon, optics, and security, and its unrivalled expertise in mass-scale networking, automation, optical, cable access, and mobility. Together with our portfolio of professional services, we enable service providers, media, and web companies to reduce cost and complexity, secure their networks, and grow revenue.

Nasdaq Financial Framework Technology Extended to Banks and Brokers Worldwide

Technology will allow for trading infrastructure and operations outsourcing, as well as trade reporting;

Supports systematic internalizers, MTFs, OTFs, single dealer and algo trading platforms

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nasdaq Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) announced its Market Technology division has now launched its Nasdaq Financial Framework technology into the banks and brokers segment for complete outsourcing of trading infrastructure and operations, including regulatory reporting. This new market infrastructure solution complements Nasdaq’s risk and surveillance technology offering, which, as the industry benchmark for trade surveillance, is leveraged by over 140 sell-side clients worldwide.

“With the Nasdaq Financial Framework, we are now able to extend the same exchange-grade technology and support used by our market operator clients to the sell-side, who are facing increased operational requirements and regulatory demands,” said Lars Ottersgård, Executive Vice President & Head of Market Technology, Nasdaq. “Our unique platform delivers technical scalability and flexibility along with the market operations expertise to support banks and brokers in running best-in-class technology while also focusing on growing their business.”

“Banks and Brokers have adapted their trading business models to the new regulatory requirements by sometimes offering a trading platform, whether an MTF, an OTF or a Systematic Internalizer (SI),” said Josephine Joséphine de Chazournes, Senior Analyst, Celent. “In this era of cost control they have also had to refocus their investments where the ROI is high and decided to outsource what others can do better or has become commoditized. The NFF platform can play a key role by offering Nasdaq’s market infrastructure technology to banks and brokers, including high end surveillance and regulatory reporting capabilities.”

Nasdaq Financial Framework for Banks & Brokers supports:

  • Systematic Internalizers: Continued regulatory pressure, specifically from MiFID II, has forced firms to determine their status as a Systematic Internalizer (SI). Under MiFID II, if firms’ activity exceeds certain thresholds, including equity and non-equity asset classes, they face additional regulatory obligations – including pre-trade transparency, quote and trade matching, best execution reporting and reference data reporting.
  • MTFs & OTFs:  Swift transaction speeds, trading incentives and lower costs have contributed to the growth of popularity in MTFs and soon OTFs throughout Europe. Also under MiFID II, both MTFs and OTFs face additional regulatory obligations – including systematic execution, best execution, pre-trade transparency, post-trade transparency, transaction reporting and regulatory requirements.
  • ATS/Single Dealer Platform: Investment banks are facing enhanced capital requirements as a result of the changing regulatory agenda. Increased data quantities, fragmented liquidity and inadequate technology resources are placing more pressure on sell-side firms to fundamentally reappraise their existing technology capabilities, requiring constant reinvestment to remain competitive.
  • Algo & Routing Infrastructure: Continued proliferation of trading venues has caused increased fragmentation in liquidity – placing additional pressure on firms’ routing systems to ensure optimal execution. To this end, firms must ensure their existing technology capabilities are up to par, continually investing to keep an edge.

“In launching this new offering, the sell-side industry can now leverage the Nasdaq Financial Framework for a range of endeavors, including setting up and running a full-scale, multi-lateral trading venue to addressing regulatory obligations for internalization,” said Carl Slesser, Vice President, Market Technology, Nasdaq. “We have built the platform to enable these services to be both deployed in the cloud and in our data warehouses, which allows for flexibility in terms of initial capacity and growth based on individual client requirements.”

Nasdaq’s world-leading market technology powers more than 250 of the world’s market infrastructure organizations and market participants, including broker-dealers, exchanges, clearinghouses, central securities depositories and regulators, in over 50 countries with end-to-end, mission-critical technology solutions.

  • Vista Global Holding is set to consolidate the business aviation industry
  • Endorsed by further $200m investment from global private equity firm Rhône Group
  • Headquartered at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC)

    • For guaranteed access to aircraft: VistaJet’s Program, available anytime, anywhere around the globe, clients only buy the hours they need;
    • For dedicated aircraft: Vista Global’s leasing and trade-in solutions for business aviation;
    • For the On Demand market: simple and efficient technology-based fleet solutions, where clients get instant online access to aircraft;
    • For the marketplace and operators: proprietary technology upgrading and automating the entire communication flow between end client and aircraft operators.

DUBAI, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today Thomas Flohr launches Vista Global Holding (“Vista Global”), a revolutionary aviation group headquartered at the DIFC which will spearhead the consolidation of the fragmented and expanding business aviation market. Vista Global is the world’s most comprehensive business aviation group and is built on four pillars with complementary services for consumers and trade. It is the first group that has built the scale and the know-how to offer the entire set of private flying solutions for its clients, setting a new global benchmark for the industry.

Vista Global’s fleets will provide every customer with asset-lite solutions to fly point to point anytime, anywhere at a moment’s notice – either with guaranteed aircraft availability or On Demand. In addition, Vista Global will offer the very first worldwide leasing and financing service for customer looking to purchase a dedicated aircraft. Complementing its consumer and trade offer, Vista Global will also support aviation companies looking to improve services to their clients through the most advanced technology, providing an end to end platform in a very fragmented global operator marketplace.vistaglobal-17

The Group is headquartered at the DIFC, the leading financial center that serves global clients from all destinations as well as its exceptionally strong connection to business aviation travelers in the whole world.

“Vista Global has been my vision ever since I started VistaJet in 2004. I wanted to create something truly new, something that would industrialize and consolidate the fragmented business aviation market across the entire range of flight service offerings,” Thomas Flohr said. “It is a historic moment for aviation and is the first of its kind. Vista Global is unrivalled in its service to offer all clients the full range of business aviation services on a global scale – flights, technology, finance.”

In order to serve each pillar of customer needs, three companies are part of Vista Global today, and the group is well positioned to make further acquisitions going forward:

  • VistaJet, the leading global business aviation solution with a fully dedicated fleet for premium fliers offering guaranteed availability anytime and anywhere around the globe
  • Vista Lease, the global aircraft leasing and financing company for client dedicated aircraft solutions;
  • TechX, the cutting-edge aviation technology firm offering end to end solutions for both customers and operators

The launch of Vista Global is backed by longstanding supporters of Thomas Flohr’s enterprises, the global private equity firm Rhône Group. The financial group is investing an additional $200 million, strengthening Vista Global’s balance sheet as it looks to take advantage of future acquisition opportunities.

Steven Langman, Chairman and Co-Founder of Rhône Group, said: “Our investment in Vista Global builds on the relationship with Thomas Flohr and the support for VistaJet we announced last year. In Vista Global we see the organization that will transform the nature of the business aviation sector and the one that is best-placed to take advantage of the changes of the industry. Vista Global’s business model and strategy give it a superior position in the market place. We could not be more pleased to have invested in such a dynamic industry pioneer.”

Vista Global’s premier flight service offer is VistaJet, the market-leading aviation operator founded in 2004. The company pioneered an innovative business model where customers have access to an entire global fleet whilst paying only for the hours they fly, free of the responsibilities and asset risk linked to aircraft ownership. VistaJet provides members the ultimate service on its fleet of over 70 branded silver with red stripe jets and with guaranteed availability to service over 96% of the world.

Vista Lease will start operations in 2019. Thomas Flohr and his team from a former aircraft leasing and trading business have developed substantial experience and reputation in the space, with the prior company having ordered, financed and delivered a book of over $1.5bn of fixed assets between 2012 through 2017. Vista Lease will hold several options for Global 7500 aircraft, as well as having the capitalization to act as principal buyer in the pre-owned segment and then offer its inventory for lease directly to its customers, who seek a dedicated aircraft solution. The company will disrupt an unnecessary and dated process which involves customers being forced through a broker to broker chain and will look after an addressable market of over 7,000 super midsized and ultralong range jet aircraft.

TechX is the aviation technology pillar, with 50 technology specialists and will build off and further enhance existing proprietary technology. The company’s mission is to create end-to-end services to allow companies to find customers, manage bookings, track flights and plan trips directly with operators, all on one platform. Furthermore, TechX provides its partners with technology and data science to deliver a personalized service to their customers, effortlessly. TechX addressable market are all 40,000 fix and rotor wing business aircraft in use around the globe.

Vista Global plans to expand its fleet within the next 3 years, further strengthening its current global coverage and infrastructure to serve every customer’s needs around the globe.
