Communications related vendor contracts start to pick up

Article | July 28, 2021

Publicly available announcements on all telecom contracts started to see a slowdown in 2nd quarter of 2019 and dipped in the 2nd quarter of 2020. We believe there might be several factors that could lead to the slowdown in 2019. In transport networking, operators are assessing new deployment models that include virtualization and disaggregated platform and in wireless segment, 4G rollout has reached maturity and started to see decline while 5G rollouts have just started and at an early phase of evaluation. And obviously at the end of 2019, we are seeing a more distinct slowdown likely from the impact of COVID-19 on global business deals. CSP has been more cautious with spending due to the challenges and uncertainties from the pandemic. However, dynamics related to COVID-19 have on the other hand accelerated bandwidth consumptions and subsequently driven investments across all segments of the network as we start to see recovery in the number of contracts announcement in the recent few quarters.

Achieving Network Visibility and Security in the Age of 5G

Article | July 28, 2021

Technology is constantly evolving, and one of the most visible signs of this in 2020 is the advent of widespread 5G mobile networks. These networks provide higher speeds and support for more devices, making it possible for enterprises to deploy Internet of Things (IoT) devices in environments where it would previously have been impossible. However, with 5G comes security concerns. As business traffic moves onto mobile networks, organizations lose visibility and security. A software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solution provides an organization with the ability to secure these new devices without sacrificing network performance.

How a 5G coronavirus conspiracy spread across Europe

Article | July 28, 2021

At about 9.30pm on Easter Monday, in the small Dutch town of Almere near Amsterdam, the fire brigade was called to put out a blaze at a large telecoms mast—the second fire of its kind that night in the area. Though neither of the Almere towers were equipped with any of the latest 5G telecoms equipment—in fact one was designed only for use by the emergency services—authorities soon concluded that the fires were perpetrated by vandals acting in the name of an unusual theory: that 5G networks have contributed to the coronavirus pandemic.
