The Five Challenges of a Superior 5G Network

The Five Challenges of a Superior 5G Network

The advent of 5G is an exciting time for service providers. Those that can converge and optimize their networks will be able to offer diverse new services that deliver a competitive advantage and contribute to top line growth. In fact, in ‘The guide to capturing the 5G industry digitalization business potential’, Ericsson delves deeper into how operators can potentially grow revenues up to 36 percent by addressing 10 key industry sectors.

A New Manufacturing Approach to Optical Transceivers

A New Manufacturing Approach to Optical Transceivers

Traditionally, to bring down the cost basis of optical transceivers, the industry relied solely on economies of scale to drive supplier volume for all-optical subassembly supply chains. This stands in stark contrast to the multi-$100 billion silicon electronic supply chain which has benefited from shared design methodologies, automated wafer manufacturing, shared packaging approaches and common test infrastructure to deliver unparalleled economies of scale for computing and networking equipment. The optical transceiver industry, by comparison, is a cottage industry built on fractured design methodologies, captive wafer manufacturing, proprietary packaging and labor-intensive production that limits economies of scale.

The Role of Edge Cloud in Securing the Internet of Things

The Role of Edge Cloud in Securing the Internet of Things

In October 2016, a major domain name system (DNS) service in the United States was hit by a very sophisticated and complex distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that clogged its servers with malicious requests from tens of millions of IP addresses. The attack caused major disruptions and outages for internet heavyweights such as Twitter, Netflix, Spotify and Reddit.

 

Of course, there had been many DDoS attacks before and organizations had long put in place defenses against them. But the October 2016 attack was different. It was caused by malware called Mirai which took advantage of the vulnerable security of devices connected to the internet – the so-called Internet of Things (IoT). In the case of the October 2016 attack, the majority of the devices used were reported to be CCTV cameras.

Powering IoT with Low Latency Networks

Powering IoT with Low Latency Networks

Previously, we looked at how service providers can make 5G a profitable business. A key part of this is also dependent upon service providers delivering distributed compute power as part of the 5G network itself by hosting thousands of mini data centers at the edge. In order to support the rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), this is crucial.

400GbE Captures the Spotlight at the SC Conference

400GbE Captures the Spotlight at the SC Conference

The annual SuperComputing (SC) Conference brings together members of the international high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis community to share the latest applied scientific research, technologies, and ideas. SCinet, the dedicated high-capacity network infrastructure supporting the SC Conference, has pushed the boundaries of networking technologies and innovations since its inception in 1991, and this year’s conference in Dallas was no exception. It’s a collaborative effort by 225 volunteer experts from 85 organizations that span industry, academia and government.

Differentiation in the 5G Era

Differentiation in the 5G Era

5G is nearly here. Three carriers have launched commercial 5G services in South Korea, now offering the service to enterprises. The race is on to take advantage of lower latency, higher speeds, greater coverage and massive capacity increases in order to be more responsive, move data faster and connect more sensors and smart devices to the network.
