Nokia expands WING with 5G IoT capabilities

Article | March 18, 2020

In a recent release, Nokia announced that it is evolving its Worldwide IoT Network Grid (WING) managed service to add 5G and edge capabilities. This upgrade reportedly facilitates operators in offering 5G IoT services without having to invest in global infrastructure. WING is designed to help operators capture early IoT market share without having to make investments in infrastructure because of a pay-as-you-go business model designed to allow the scaling of 5G IoT services faster and more cost-effectively. With Nokia WING, operators will be able to leverage new business models and tap into industries such as connected cars, critical public services, and real-time industrial monitoring and control, as well as remote healthcare, the company said. Nokia has invested in a 5G WING lab in Dallas, Texas, to which operators around the globe can connect and begin testing 5G IoT use cases.

5G Needs Edge Computing to Deliver on Its Promises

Article | February 11, 2020

Edge computing will be a key enabler for 5G to deliver on its bandwidth and latency requirements. In the short term, it can enable developers to provide a “5G experience” at scale. In the long term, it will be necessary to optimise customer experience for real-time, data hungry applications. Telecoms operators have reported that 5G in the lab can deliver network speeds that are more than twenty times faster than LTE1. But, this does not reflect the experience of the average user. And 5G roll out in many countries will be limited in terms of coverage and capabilities for several more years, given that the ultra-low latency standards will only be revealed in 3GPP’s Release 16 later this year. This is why it is likely that, for 5G to deliver on its promises, it must be coupled with edge computing.

New nubia Red Magic 5G teaser shows off interesting "Slow Door Video" capture mode

Article | March 6, 2020

nubia and its CEO Ni Fei, in particular, have really been going the extra mile to hype-up the upcoming Red Magic 5G phone. Earlier teasersfocused on 5G connectivity, 144Hz display refresh rate, raw performance and active cooling, but now attention shifts a bit as we draw ever closer to the phone's March 12 announcement date. Clearly, Ni Fei wants fans to know that beyond a hardcore gaming experience, the Red Magic 5G will also deliver a capable camera. The latest teaser video shows off a cool feature called Slow Door Video, which we are guessing is a rather crude translation. Also crudely translated, the text of the post itself reads.

GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SD-WAN: FEATURES YOU NEED TO START USING TODAY

Article | March 20, 2020

Software-defined wide-area network, also known as SD-WAN, is an implementation of software-defined networking (SDN) technology applied on WAN. This can include WAN connections such as broadband Internet, MPLS, and 4G. One of the most common reasons large businesses use SD-WAN is that it helps them connect their branch offices to centralized datacenters located over large geographical distances. While being very helpful to enterprises in a variety of ways, SD-WAN initially lacked several features such as application-aware routing, integrated firewalls, analytics tools, and more.
