Huawei: AR Needs 5G, 5G needs AR

Without a robust 5G network, carriers will not be able to take full advantage of new business opportunities surrounding augmented reality (AR). This was the bottom-line message from Huawei’s recent Better World Summit (BWS), which turned the spotlight on “5G+AR.”

How the network is designed is another key consideration. If AR headsets are to become lighter and cheaper, offloading compute processing to the network edge and cloud — over stable and low-latency 5G connections — is essential. It is why Huawei advocates a partnership approach, spanning AR collaboration in all three areas: 5G networks, devices, and content.

The prize of getting these sorts of partnerships ‘right’ is huge. According to Huawei, working in tandem with a third-party research institute, the AR market will reach a hefty $300 billion with 1.2 billion users by 2025.

Five ways to win at antenna integration

Article | May 7, 2021

Antennas are fundamental to the performance of connected devices, but are often implemented as an afterthought, resulting not only in sub-optimal performance, but also in less-than-ideal form factor. It can also have a negative impact on cost for the device as a whole. It is therefore essential that organisations prioritise antenna design as part of a holistic device design philosophy – bear in mind that it is practically impossible to fix bad antenna design. Early decisions need to be made regarding the relative merits of embedded or external devices and then attention can turn to optimising antenna integration.

Unify NetOps and SecOps with SD-WAN Cloud Management

Article | March 4, 2020

CIOs know that ubiquitous connectivity across domains—campus, branch, cloud, and edge, wired or wireless—is a baseline requirement for building a digital enterprise. But, as CISOs know, as the network fabric spreads to encompass devices and location-agnostic data and compute resources, the need for end-to-end integrated security is equally paramount. Add in the necessity to continuously monitor and maintain application performance throughout campus and branch and edge locations and you create an enormous workload for NetOps and SecOps teams that are simultaneously dealing with static CapEx and OpEx budgets. Often the result is a tug-of-war between the teams: one striving to keep the network optimized for performance and availability, the other striving to keeping data, applications, and devices secure.
