Alex and Ani (320 sq. ft.) is a new specialty retail concept at the AIRMALL BOS and is located in Terminal E.  The store offers eco-friendly and stylish accessories that emit a positive energy, including bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings.  Alex and Ani accessories provide a vehicle for wearers to express their individuality in an organic, spiritual way.  The company is based in New England and also has a retail location on Newbury Street in Boston.

Travel + Leisure Travel Store (1,545 sq. ft.) brings the adventurous spirit of the popular magazine to a unique retail experience.  Located in Terminal E, this one-stop travel shop was created by Travel + Leisure magazine and Hudson Group.

Cosi (1,235 sq. ft.) will offer travelers in the Southwest Airlines holdroom a place to relax and enjoy a delicious meal in a comfortable and contemporary atmosphere.

But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
