The OPNFV Verification Program (OVP) is a compliance and verification program created within Linux Foundation Networking to address the deployment and interoperability challenges that operators are encountering as they engage in more real world NFV deployments. The vision is to create an end-to-end framework with a comprehensive certification program that includes aspects such as validation performance as well as compliance. The goals are to help operators to introduce commercial services faster because the VNFs are arriving pre qualified; to reduce the cost of lab-based testing; and to de-risk their engagement with a wider number of VNF vendors.

NVIDIA Providing Free GPU Virtualization Software Access for Remote Workers

Article | May 28, 2021

To support companies needing quick setup and support for remote workers, NVIDIA is expanding their free, 90-day virtual GPU software evaluation from 128 to 500 licenses. With vGPU software licenses, companies can use their on-premises NVIDIA GPUs to provide accelerated virtual infrastructure so people can work and collaborate from anywhere. Companies can also temporarily repurpose NVIDIA GPUs being used on other projects to support their remote workers. NVIDIA offers a variety of customized vGPU software to meet diverse workplace needs; all three tiers of the company’s specialized vGPU software are available through the expanded free licensing. In addition to providing high performance and reducing latency for remote workers, NVIDIA vGPU software ensures protection for sensitive data and digital assets, which remain in the data center and aren’t saved to local client devices. This is an important security requirement for remote work across many industries, including visual effects and design, as well as for research and development.

Why America Must win the Race to 5G

Article | May 28, 2021

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.
