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.

Cisco and Microsoft partner on cloud IoT stuff

Article | March 5, 2020

The move was announced in a Microsoft blog, which somehow resisted the urge to use the term ‘end-to-end’ a lot. The thinking is that Microsoft’s Azure IoT platform is great at the datacenter end of things and Cisco is pretty hot at the edge. Industries increasingly want a bit of both from their IoT so this partnership has been created to provide that.Using software-based intelligence pre-loaded onto Cisco IoT network devices, telemetry data pipelines from industry-standard protocols like OPC-Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) and Modbus can be easily established using a friendly UI directly into Azure IoT Hub,” explains the blog, “Additional telemetry processing is also supported by Cisco through local scripts developed in Microsoft Visual Studio, where filtered data can also be uploaded directly into Azure IoT Hub. This collaboration provides customers with a fully integrated solution that will give access to powerful design tools, global connectivity, advance analytics, and cognitive services for analyzing IoT data.

Is Your On-Premises Existence Under Scrutiny? VMware Cloud on Dell EMC Offers a Solution

Article | February 26, 2020

For many IT teams and organizations, maintaining an on-premises infrastructure has become an increasing challenge. The introduction of the public cloud, along with the wholesale perception that running workloads in the public cloud is less expensive and provides an equivalent environment for previously on-premises workloads have captured significant attention. While the popularity of the public cloud is an undeniable force, without considering the disadvantages of relocating applications from on-premises data centers to the public cloud organizations are unable to make a balanced business decision. From the finance perspective, the traditional process of accounting for expensive capital-funded on-premises infrastructure updates creates extra work accounting for the infrastructure assets across the life span of the equipment. For accounting teams – the main allure of moving to the public cloud is that it eliminates the significant capital spend necessary to refresh the infrastructure every few years, replacing that cost with a more manageable monthly bill from the public cloud provider.
