What is SD-WAN and Why you need it

| February 15, 2019

A useful analogy to understand SD-WAN is where VPN’s are like manual gearboxes in a car; SD-WAN is an automatic radar-guided cruise-control solution. Both can achieve the same result: connectivity between 2 remote locations, but SD-WAN can automate much of the complexity in tunnel monitoring, redundancy and fail-over configurations. Full SD-WAN combines all data transport types into a single overlay connection that is intelligently managed to route network traffic through optimal physical network connections (fiber, DOCSIS, MPLS, 4G, etc). For example a branch office can employ commodity local broadband internet, wireless 4G/LTE and commercial connections such as MPLS and merge them into a single robust tunnel. Certain implementation separate the traffic into exclusive tunnels to reserve private MPLS tunnels for highly-specific workloads like branch connectivity. This implementation is referred to as hybrid SD-WAN. This creates a highly resilient connection with multiple backup fail-over, high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity options.

QUANTUM CRYPTOGRAPHY: HOW QUANTUM COMPUTING WILL HELP SECURE 5G NETWORKS?

Article | February 25, 2020

Quantum Computing is the use of quantum-mechanical phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform computation. Quantum computers perform calculations based on the probability of an object’s state before it is measured – instead of just 1s or 0s – which means they have the potential to process more data compared to classical computers. A quantum computer works with particles that can be in superposition. Observing the market trends we can say that quantum computing will change our computer architecture, IT architecture, and even corporate structure.

How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | April 8, 2020

The current global pandemic is drastically impacting our daily lives, and as a result, the relevance of such digital applications and services is accelerating. For example, we suddenly see an increased need for communication services, tools for remote collaboration, and fast and reliable access to data – whether it’s from the office, the home or somewhere in between. Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) are two technology concepts providing significant benefits in this new digital reality. These technologies open new ways of working in areas such as manufacturing, gaming, media, automotive and healthcare, allowing for both increased productivity and completely new user experiences. In the Ericsson ConsumerLab merged reality report, 7 out of 10 early adopters expect VR and AR to change everyday life fundamentally.

How Is SD-WAN The Fastest Moving Technology?

Article | February 10, 2020

A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is an evolution of traditional WAN that allows businesses to leverage different networking options and transport services to connect users to applications. This includes the MPLS, LTE and broadband internet services. The SD-WAN is a better, more efficient means of supporting latency-sensitive applications. Enterprise customers can make use of this new network to increase network and application performance and/or lower costs, all of which contribute to improved user experience.

What are the implications of LinkedIn’s latest data breach?

Article | June 30, 2021

Although the cause is as yet unknown, this breach is likely to have the same culprit as most large scale data breaches that have occurred in recent memory, through a simple misconfiguration of a server or shared repository. As the sheer size, scale, and footprint of global technology vendors like Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and so on continues to grow, so too does the opportunity for simple errors to make their way into some infrastructure configurations that can then be exploited.
