Ethernet ports are composed of multiple lanes, each operating at a common data rate. Ten Gb/s per lane over 10 lanes, which provides a 100 Gb/s Ethernet structure is the norm today and can be moved over copper cable, although they are increasingly being moved over more efficient fiber optic strands...

Security in digital banking is all about convenience and trust

Article | May 12, 2021

The increasing use of mobile applications and digital payment services has not only paved the way for new banking models, but also highlighted the importance of user experience in digital banking. Banking applications are now developed completely on cloud, support multiple platforms, and use AI/ML extensively. Security, a critical aspect of digital banking, has transformed with innovative capabilities like self-service identity verification, passwordless access, risk-based multi-factor authentication (MFA), behavioral analytics, and encryption capabilities. The underlying reason for developing the above-mentioned capabilities is to provide consumers with a secure banking experience, where they can access their financial data without fear and conduct transactions with ease. For the bank employee, it is all about working with the latest digital services and securely accessing them from anywhere. It is important to understand that user experience, be it consumer or workforce, is all about providing convenience and establishing trust. Only then can a financial institution remain ahead of the competition.

Did 5G cause coronavirus? Four reasons why ‘dangerous’ conspiracy theory is completely wrong

Article | April 14, 2020

5G is a little higher at 3.4GHz to 3.6GHz, but that's tiny when you consider that microwaves go up to 300GHz. And visible light comes in at a range of around 430THz to 770THz. That's more than a thousand times higher than the maximum microwave – and 100,000 higher than 5G. Dangerous radiation, like UV rays, X-rays and gamma rays are also far higher up the spectrum still. Early theories suggested 5G could lead to cancer – and now crackpots have linked it to coronavirus too. But it's simply impossible for 5G to cause any of these problems. Radiation damages cells by breaking them apart, but 5G microwaves simply lack the power to do this. 5G is a low-frequency radiation, far below infrared and visible light. In fact, it's essential that 5G is low-frequency, because higher frequencies are less useful at delivering mobile signals over large areas. We know that this level of radiation is safe, because otherwise the visible light from our televisions would have killed us a long time ago.

RAN Management and Orchestration Is Central to Operators Gaining Control Over Their Own Networks

Article | July 6, 2021

The promise of Open vRAN is to give back to mobile operators some form of control over their networks. The “open” refers to the opening of RAN interfaces. It is critical because it gives operators the possibility to buy the radio unit and the baseband unit from different vendors, rather than having to buy an integrated system, and therefore helps them diversify their suppliers and reduce their dependence on traditional vendors. The “v” refers to virtual. Virtualization is about disaggregating hardware and software and enabling the use of commercial off-the-shelf servers, instead of the usual purpose-built hardware, to run network functions in order to increase flexibility and reduce costs. Across Asia-Pacific, the announcements and activities from operators including Airtel, Axiata, NTT Docomo, Rakuten Mobile, Smartfren and Telkomsel indicate a growing appetite for open and virtualized radio access networks. In countries like India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, open RAN can for example help to address the challenges of remote connectivity and to deploy a network in places where it has been traditionally difficult to achieve a satisfactory return on investment.

Intelligence Brief: How will Covid-19 impact 5G?

Article | March 25, 2020

Mobile technology will help to get us through this whether that be from supporting health services, allowing more people to work remotely or simply providing a link to the outside world for people self-isolating. That said, for the average consumer priorities have clearly changed. With the epicentre of the crisis now in Europe, many potential early adopters of the latest technologies will now need to concern themselves with their financial and personal wellbeing rather than the latest handset. This year is already shaping up to be a bad one for everyone, but what does it mean for 5G vendors, operators and users? How will the crisis affect national rollouts and what should we expect to see in the future? There is little doubt that this is the most significant challenge mobile network and handset vendors have faced.
