WEAVING THE 5G EDGE – THE ENABLING POWER OF PROGRAMMABLE FABRICS

June 22, 2021

5G brings edge computing to the forefront, and the edge has become much more complex and critical. For those contemplating new 5G rollouts or making non-standalone (NSA) to standalone (SA) transitions, understanding how to take advantage of this unique solution architecture could reduce costs and improve customer outcomes. This research brief will examine the novel use of programmable fabrics in edge architectures and how this hybrid approach can minimize the deployment footprint, reduce power consumption and cooling needs, and improve network performance.

Multi-Vendor 5G Core Networks

whitePaper | July 26, 2021

5G standalone (SA) operation, using a new core network, is foundational to mobile operators seeking to offer advanced 5G services with a low cost of production. Over the next two to three years, operators in all global regions will design, deploy, and scale 5G core networks on software-defined infrastructure. By April 2021, eight operators had already launched SA, according to the Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), and a further 36 have firm plans to launch in the near term. There is now a good supply of devices that support SA mode, including the iPhone 12 after the latest iOS update.

The Third Wave of the Internet

whitePaper | August 5, 2021

The third wave of the Internet is marked by substantial growth of more mobile, powerful, intelligent, and automated devices on the emerging edge network. In this environment, IT and OT will be converged and contribute to the increasing volume of data creation. This growth will outpace the growth of the core infrastructure capacity and create congestion points in the end-to-end application delivery chain, causing massive latency. Delay will bring near fatal blows to system stability and the application experience. Security challenges will also increase significantly. These conditions require a new approach—one centered around holistic application distribution and based on a different set of technology design principles. This is the essence of the Edge 2.0 era.
