Lookout

Lookout is a cybersecurity company that predicts and stops mobile attacks before they do harm. Lookout’s cloud-based technology is fueled by a global sensor network of more than 80 million users and tens of thousands of apps that are added daily. With this dataset of virtually all the mobile code in the world and the predictive machine intelligence to analyze and make sense of the data, Lookout can identify connections that would otherwise go unseen and stop cybercriminals from attacking mobile devices.

Demand for compute remains strong in 1Q21

Article | May 20, 2021

Demand for data center compute continues to be strong and we believe 1Q21 would have been even stronger had it not been for the semiconductor supply shortage. We learned from vendors that the flow of server CPUs out of TSMC and Intel’s fabs was steady in 1Q21 but supply of other components necessary to build a server was tight, including power semis, BMC and PCB substrate.

Nokia, Japan's KDDI Complete 5G Core Standalone (SA) Network Trial

Article | February 20, 2020

Nokia and Japan's KDDI have completed a 5G core standalone (SA) network trial, moving the operator closer to being able to provide 5G-enabled services. The standalone trial, using Nokia’s 5G AirGile cloud-native core solution, was conducted entirely independently of previous generations’ mobile network architecture. With a comprehensive 5G core portfolio, Nokia claims that it is well placed to assist KDDI in analyzing the network evolution steps and early deployment of 5G core Stand Alone services, like network slicing in which service providers virtually partition network capacity to subscribers based on customized use case needs.

Incumbent vendors cannot ignore the market-disrupting implications of AT&T’s and Swisscom’s outsourced 5G mobile cores

Article | July 1, 2021

At the tail-end of June, both AT&T and Swisscom announced plans to outsource their 5G mobile core networks to cloud service providers. AT&T’s announcement was with Microsoft Azure. Swisscom’s was with AWS. With the AT&T deal, Azure will be acquiring IP and engineering expertise from AT&T that it can resell to other operators. It was reported that Azure will offer jobs to current AT&T employees, as well. This move suggests Microsoft understands how critical it will be to retain talent that has deep networking knowledge. Swisscom’s deal does not appear to include AWS acquiring any Swisscom assets or employees, but the operator did say it will be using AWS for its own IT applications.

HOW 5G WILL DRIVE CLOUD COMPUTING TO THE NEXT LEVEL?

Article | February 13, 2020

The world is now leading towards fifth-generation (5G) network connection, which is set to revolutionize the network and communications industry by providing ultra-fast transmission rates. This can be as much as 100 times faster than the existing 4G or previous networks. Undeniably, today we are generating a massive amount of data and to process effectively, there is a need to leverage a big data set that can make these data actionable. This is where Cloud Computing comes in, delivering a large data storage option to businesses. However, this large storage service needs faster connectivity as the amount of data is continuously growing.
