Trump's 'Secure 5G & Beyond Act' Explained: What It Actually Means

Article | March 29, 2020

The Trump White House has signed the "Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020," paving the way for the creation of a plan to secure 5G networks and protect related innovations. With 5G devices rolling out in the US market, and providers expanding their 5G coverage, the future of mobile tech is getting closer, and the U.S. government is beginning to look more seriously at how it can best be protected. The path to 5G-enabled devices and compatible services in the United States began opening up in 2019, with major mobile companies introducing a handful of 5G-enabled phones and limited service options. With more devices built to capitalize on 5G on the horizon - and demand for 5G access from other industries on the rise - the signing of the Act gives US lawmakers a path toward legislation to help protect US businesses, citizens, and strategic allies.

A decade of open computing

Article | March 29, 2020

The third Annual OCP China Day, organized by the Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation and hosted by Inspur, will be held on July 27, 2021 in Beijing. It marks another step in the right direction to popularizing open computing across the globe. This year is the tenth anniversary of the open compute project and the theme of OCP China Day is “Open compute for a new decade: Decarbonization, Efficiency, Adoption”. Omdia has tracked the open computing market in detail for 5 years and over that period we have seen the end-user base expand and adoption take off. We expect 40% of the servers shipped in 2025 to be developed based on open standard, up from 7% in 2016. This is a very significant number, partularly given that our forecast takes into account large scale adoption at only two or three of the hyperscale cloud service providers. Most of the net new deployments are expected to be at tier-2 cloud, communication service providers and enterprises, including the public or government sector.
