Networking is on the cusp of a major change. The hardware-centric networks you’re familiar with are hitting the plateau of stability, and are struggling to keep up with the digitization of business. Virtualization, automation, and the cloud are all transforming the way networking professionals do their jobs. A working knowledge of virtualization is no longer optional. Those who want to stay relevant must develop a fresh set of skills, or risk being left behind.

How 5G will change the face of the automotive and industrial segments

Article | April 1, 2020

5G is already being rolled out and is only going to increase in the next couple of years. The global 5G rollout map now covers over 30 countries and 115 operators. The number of 5G devices supporting gigabit speeds in the market has also doubled, with both operators and ODMs committing to 5G connectivity offerings. Market research suggests that 5G will account for 1.2 billion connections by 2025, covering about one-third of the world’s population and about 30 million 5G capable connected cars.

How will 5G transform transport?

Article | February 26, 2020

If 2019 was the year that 5G’s impact on transportation spluttered into life, then 2020 will see it move through the gears and start to transform the way we travel.While the arrival of the much-vaunted, fully autonomous vehicle is still some way away, most of the world’s major car brands are set to release new 5G-enabled models which link into the internet of things (IoT) and offer drivers and their passengers a wealth of new opportunities. According to analysts Gartner, the share of cars actively connected to a 5G service will grow from a current base of 15 per cent to 74 per cent by 2023 and 94 per cent five years later.

FUTURE-PROOFING 5G ARCHITECTURE WITH OPEN-RAN

Article | May 19, 2021

The RAN (Radio Access Network) architecture for mobile networks includes a remote radio unit (RRU) located at the top of a cell tower, which communicates with a baseband unit (BBU) at the base of the tower. The hardware and communication interfaces are owned by a specific vendor, and its software-driven functionality is tightly coupled within the hardware. Traditionally, this has worked well for mobile network operators (MNOs). However, there are several drawbacks to consider – for instance, upgrading or changing the wireless network demands physical hardware replacements throughout the network, which is cost-inefficient, labor-intensive, and time-consuming. Furthermore, the equipment and interfaces that connect the hardware are owned by the vendors that originally supplied them, which locks MNOs into existing relationships with them.

4 ways 5G will change your enterprise threat model

Article | March 3, 2020

With 5G poised to become widely available across the globe, enterprise organizations need to seriously consider the security implications of deploying the technology. Over the next few years, 5G networks are expected to play a central role in enabling new digital transformation initiatives and in supporting new business use cases that are beyond the reach of current 4G-network technology. Driving much of that change will be 5G’s speeds of up to 1Gbps, its 1-millisecond latencies, and its support for up to about 100 times more connected devices per unit area compared to 4G.
