The Unification of Network and Security

April 1, 2021

The Unification of Network
Organizations today require immediate and uninterrupted
access to critical network and cloud-based resources in order to support the swift pace of digital business transformation. Spurred by the boom in remote work and the ongoing migration to cloud-based applications and services, consumption patterns are transforming traditional private and public networks into a single network of many end-users and devices scattered across
the organization’s footprint. As a result, there are growing
security concerns with this rapidly changing environment
many traditional security solutions no longer provide the
protection needed along with the flexibility to support
businesses anywhere, anytime, via any device

5G and the Future of Work

whitePaper | January 12, 2022

The world is becoming increasingly connected with advancements in wireless technology. Now in its fifth generation, 5G brings unprecedented speed, reliability, and responsiveness. As 5G wireless technology is further developed and brought to mainstream markets, it will catalyze a paradigm shift for how we connect with our devices, information, and one another. Verizon partnered with Gensler to explore how 5G will transform the way people work. We started by evaluating the critical capabilities and limitations of 5G. An analysis of 5G disruptions in tangential industries yielded five key emerging trends. Finally, by applying these trends to the workplace, we distilled specific implications that are most likely to shape the future of work.

5G TERMS AND ACRONYMS

whitePaper | November 15, 2019

The promise of 5G is faster and more reliable communications. 5G opens doors to exciting new connections to Internet of Things (IoT) networks, autonomous driving, broadband wireless, and interruption-free video viewing. Whatever you develop 5G technology for, it will be imperative to understand design and test concepts and solutions across multiple dimensions. There are a lot of 5G terms and more on the way. We’ve got you covered – here’s a list of what’s out there today. Second-generation digital cellular networks used by mobile phones, designed as a replacement for analog first-generation radio (1G). Designed primarily for voice using digital standards.

The Future of IT Network Security

whitePaper | July 12, 2021

It’s no secret that the sudden drastic changes in the way we work over the past nine months have negatively impacted user experience and increased cybersecurity risk. IT departments have scrambled to empower newly remote employees, seeking ways to enable ubiquitous application access and improve network performance. But the acceleration of the Future of Work has come at a cost. Business continuity concerns have caused organizations to focus on improving the user experience for remote employees at the expense of security and IT professionals know this isn’t sustainable. Menlo’s new research report captures the concerns of IT professionals at U.S. based organizations as they grapple with the acceleration of digital transformation in the age of COVID-19.

How To Achieve Secured Wired and Wireless Networks

whitePaper | May 1, 2022

The access layer offers the broadest attack surface in an enterprise’s network. It supports all network connectivity (via both wired Ethernet switches and wireless access points) for employees, contractors, and guests—as well as Internet-ofThings (IoT) devices. With ever-increasing numbers of devices connecting to networks each day, ensuring access layer security becomes a critical need. And with remote working becoming a new standard during the COVID-19 pandemic (and even beyond), proper security to mitigate access layer attacks has never been more important.

Satellite Synchronization is Critical to 5G Mobile Cellular Network Operation

whitePaper | January 15, 2020

Synchronization in carrier networks has been in use forever, but because of its elevated role in 5G, it is now getting more attention. Mobile cellular networks must be synchronized so that towers (base stations) with overlapping coverage do not interfere with each other causing dropped calls or service degradation. The NodeBs used in Third Generation (3G) cellular communications rely on satellite communications for synchronization, as do the Baseband Units (BBUs) used in Fourth Generation (4G) cellular communications.
