This week the global market for Enterprise WAN is experiencing an inflection point as Dell launches a new global SD-WAN offering based on technology from VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud. VMware SD-WAN occupies the number one position in the SD-WAN space for market share according to Frost & Sullivan’s Global SD-WAN Vendor Market Mid-Year Forecasts 2018, and is also a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure. The landscape of SD-WAN vendors is crowded, but Dell EMC’s entrance is a big deal. This solution will help expedite the industry trend toward SD-WAN and to non-proprietary platforms in the branch WAN edge. Changes in the bandwidth market landscape and further adoption of advanced functionality like edge VNF, real-time edge processing, and enhancement for real-time apps like IoT will likely take place. With support and logistics in 180 countries, 34 Star awards for customer service, and a total sales organization of close to 34,000 across the globe, Dell will bring next level capabilities that are very desirable to enterprise customers.

How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | April 8, 2020

For some time now, 5G has been associated with the promise of new digital applications and services that come with a hyper-connected life. We have seen that this new technology, which provides “perfect” connectivity, creates new value for both us as individuals and to industries and enterprises. The current global pandemic is drastically impacting our daily lives, and as a result, the relevance of such digital applications and services is accelerating. For example, we suddenly see an increased need for communication services, tools for remote collaboration, and fast and reliable access to data – whether it’s from the office, the home or somewhere in between. Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) are two technology concepts providing significant benefits in this new digital reality. These technologies open new ways of working in areas such as manufacturing, gaming, media, automotive and healthcare, allowing for both increased productivity and completely new user experiences. In the Ericsson ConsumerLab merged reality report, 7 out of 10 early adopters expect VR and AR to change everyday life fundamentally.
