Until recently, enterprise-grade disaster recovery had been prohibitively expensive for most organizations. Thanks to the rapid development of cloud infrastructure, organizations can now attain top-of-the-line disaster recovery capabilities into Microsoft Azure at a fraction of the cost. An enterprise-grade disaster recovery (DR) solution is no longer something that is “nice to have.” Nor can it be a document approved by the Board of Directors but hasn’t been touched or tested in years. Why not? In addition to the probability of damaging your hard-earned reputation, downtime also comes with major costs. Gartner estimates the average cost of IT downtime at $5,600 per minute, which can add up quickly.

Accelerating 5G vRAN: The Case for GPUs

Article | April 1, 2020

The pace of 5G rollouts in 2019 surpassed expectations, and in 2020 the momentum is only increasing. So far, 5G usage has been predominantly 4G-style mobile broadband (MBB) services driving smartphone traffic growth. By the end of 2019, global mobile data traffic was around 40 exabytes (EB) per month and by 2025 we expect 160 EB, with video-related streaming accounting for about three-quarters of the total. Beyond MBB, 5G will allow service providers to address more of the IT value chain as they accommodate and enable an emerging range of enterprise applications and services. What will it take to spur this next wave of 5G across a broad spectrum of use-cases? RAN virtualization is a key element to the story of 5G reaching beyond MBB.

Why America Must win the Race to 5G

Article | April 1, 2020

The United States has entered another technology duel on par with the space race—the race for the 5G network. It will revolutionize digital interconnectivity through enhanced data processing and storage capacity. The Chinese technology giant Huawei is capturing the 5G telecommunications equipment industry worldwide. Huawei promotes contracts covering every aspect of the 5G network from financing to installation. The United States is concerned that the company’s growth amplifies China’s political sway and brings security vulnerabilities. Huawei is subservient to the communist government under Chinese law. Multiple governments have indicted Huawei for espionage, theft, bribery, and corruption. The United States has added to these charges obstruction of justice, fraud, and illicit sales to the rogue regimes of Iran and North Korea. As the West and China haggle over the 5G market, several nations face a telling choice. To meet the 5G challenge, the United States should negotiate trade agreements on end-to-end 5G services, create supply chains for upcoming virtualized 5G networks, support alternate suppliers, and invest in domestic research to dampen Huawei’s expansion.
