5G Open RAN Ecosystem

whitePaper | June 29, 2021

There is no end to the process of network augmentation, and current augmentation process needs to be further enhanced to better serve the future customer needs. To this effect, the networks should be flexible, agile and scalable. In addition, in the 5G era, creation of new vertical markets utilizing the mobile networks will be facilitated. Under these circumstances, operators need to keep evolving their networks by adding new network equipment and/or replacing existing equipment. With open interfaces and open application programming interfaces (APIs), operators can freely choose and adopt best-of-breed solutions among various vendors considering time-to-market and cost in this process by only adding or replacing the required components at the required time without having to swap other equipment that are connected.

FortiGate Secure SD-WAN on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Reference Architecture

whitePaper | December 25, 2019

The public cloud, often referred to as the cloud, is a popular model of cloud computing. Cloud service providers leverage the internet and make resources such as infrastructure, storage, and servers available for businesses. Third-party providers own and operate the shared physical hardware and offer it to companies based on their needs. This multi-tenant environment makes it easier to spread the infrastructure costs across a number of users. Companies around the globe are adopting the cloud to take advantage of core characteristics: Cost effectiveness. By using cloud infrastructure, customers do not need to spend large amounts of money on purchasing and maintaining equipment. This drastically reduces capital expenditure (CapEx) costs, saving companies the resources and time to invest in hardware, facilities, and utilities, or to build out a large data center to grow their business.
