Getting Started with VMware Virtual Print

TOM FENTON | February 25, 2019

In this article, I'll be looking at VMware Virtual Print, a new feature in Horizon 7.7 that enables a View user to print from his virtual desktop. Along with VMware Virtual Print, there are currently two other options to do so: Virtual Printing and using third-party products. Virtual Printing, View's older printing feature, has been included in View since the early days and uses a basic version of the ThinPrint virtual desktop printing solution. Even though VMware now includes two printing methods for virtual desktops, however, many users opt to purchase a third-party product, including the full version of ThinPrint, mainly due to the advanced features that these products offer.

SD-WAN security: The impact of orchestrated services multiplicity

Article | February 17, 2020

The pace of software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) deployments has experienced strong growth over the past four years. As a result, the SD-WAN has already become a strategic component of many communications service provider (CSP) networks. One reason for SD-WAN growth is that the service richness of SD-WANs continues to evolve, such as with the integration of security services into those deployments. Increasingly, SD-WAN security services are becoming an important differentiator, playing a major role in the managed SD-WAN service provider selection process.

What's New in 5G

Article | May 5, 2021

The next-generation of wireless technologies – known as 5G – is here. Not only is it expected to offer network speeds that are up to 100 times faster than 4G LTE and reduce latency to nearly zero, it will allow networks to handle 100 times the number of connected devices, revolutionizing business and consumer connectivity and enabling the “Internet of Things.” Leading policymakers – federal regulators and legislators – are making it a top priority to ensure that the wireless industry has the tools it needs to maintain U.S. leadership in commercial 5G deployments. This blog provides monthly updates on FCC actions and Congressional efforts to win the race to 5G.

Don’t worry, 5G is entirely safe say international radiation experts

Article | March 16, 2020

Yes, 5G is here and it’s making internet speeds faster and more reliable around the world. It’s also causing a few people to panic about radiation levels. And whether it causes the coronavirus, but that’s another story. Thankfully, the international regulator for radiation levels has given it the all-clear. The International Commission on Non‐Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is a Germany-based scientific body assessing health risks of radio broadcasts. It has called for new guidelines on 5G but says that the even the most high-frequency 5G waves are far below the threshold for anything that would cause us harm.

The network and security must converge for 5G-enabled edges

Article | May 3, 2021

In tandem with the deployment of 5G networks is the emergence of edge computing and edge clouds – placing data processing and storage in close proximity to where it’s needed on the enterprise edge. Moving computing closer to the enterprise edge improves network performance and reduces cost as traffic no longer needs to be routed to central clouds. 5G networks and edge computing are creating new business opportunities and richer consumer experiences. Many mobile service providers are planning to shift their network delivery from a few mega-capacity central clouds to thousands of edge clouds that support more agile, customizable services. Without integration, the new 5G network edges are where the new security challenges will likely occur. The performance of 5G networks has to be matched by the associated security and computing components. Without strategic security planning, the necessary security solutions could inadvertently create bottlenecks that negate the value of edge computing. Enabling applications to perform at 5G speeds to ensure expected user experience is one thing, but ensuring that this happens securely, across more network access points than ever before, presents an entirely new set of very serious challenges. Organizations need to be prepared today with stronger, broader, integrated and automated security foundations.
