Intel and VMware announces collaboration on integrated software platform for virtualized RAN to accelerate LTE and future 5G networks
Today, Intel announced they are collaborating on an integrated software platform for virtualized Radio Access Networks (RAN) to accelerate the rollout of both existing LTE and future 5G networks. As communications service providers (CoSPs) evolve their networks to support the rollout of future 5G networks, they are increasingly adopting a software-defined, virtualized infrastructure. Virtualization of the core network has already enabled CoSPs to improve operational costs and bring services to market faster. This expanded collaboration between Intel and VMware aims to offer CoSPs reduced development cycles and scale across multiple designs.

The lack of a simple and efficient IT platform designed for easy consumption by application workloads is adding to the cost of doing business. Cisco HyperFlex Systems™ addresses this need while also including the desirable features of flexibility and consistent management. The Cisco HyperFlex™ platform reduces the time needed to deploy the required computing, storage, and network infrastructure for desktop virtualization to two hours or less, an order of magnitude faster than with some converged systems, which typically require two weeks. VMware Horizon with View can be used as the broker for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) for pooled, nonpersistent Microsoft Windows virtual desktops and, with Horizon 6 with View, for hosted applications and desktops through integration with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) on Microsoft Windows Server. This solution allows nearly immediate use of new capacity as it is brought online and enables seamless desktop image maintenance.

Mozilla Introduces its VPN to Mac and Linux

Mozilla | January 14, 2021

The Mozilla VPN has finally arrived on Mac and Linux. Following a Private Network expansion it brought to Firefox in 2019 and a shut beta, Mozilla revealed a Windows and Android VPN in July. It later presented an iOS variant. The VPN is at present accessible in six nations — the US, Canada, the UK, New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia — and it'll open in more areas soon, as per Mozilla. A $5/month membership conceals to five gadgets, so you'll have the option to utilize the VPN on your telephone, tablet and PC, regardless of whether your PC runs Linux. The Mozilla VPN isn't the least expensive alternative available. Nonetheless, Mozilla has said that, since it utilizes less lines of code than other VPNs, the administration is quicker than many opponent ones. You can interface with in excess of 280 workers in excess of 30 nations through the VPN with no data transfer capacity limitations. The administration utilizes WireGuard gadget level encryption and it doesn't log your organization movement.

Edgecore Networks | December 22, 2021

Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, announced the launch of the Work-from-Anywhere (WFA) solution to provide organizations a plug-and-play, secure, agile, reliable mechanism to deliver enterprise-grade services to their remote workers. The trend of making offices a place for collaboration has been going on for years, but the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the dial. Social distancing requirements across the world have prompted thousands of companies and millions of employees to discover the benefits of a flexible work environment. This shift to remote work and hybrid workspace forces organizations to take a more systematic and strategic approach to connecting remote workers to applications and data. Traditional WAN connections over MPLS tend to be rigid, costly, and provide deployment connections that cannot easily adapt to today's dynamic networking needs. Edgecore's WFA solution includes feature-rich SD-WAN devices, the SDW-series, addressing those networking issues and provides robust, secure, adaptive network services on demand. WFA Solution Key Features Central Management Multiple options for central management:\ VM in x86 appliance based VM in cloud platform Edgecore ecCLOUD Administrator can monitor and auto-adjust remote networks with real-time feedback from premises and deploy pre-configured network paths to remote sites. Zero Touch Deployment Automated provisioning from central management with pre-configured network setup to edge devices without user intervention can improve reliability and minimize bring-up costs, while maintaining efficiency and flexibility on deployment. Adaptive WAN Selection The SDW-series provides parallel connections for load-balancing, failover, and traffic steering to ensure the high-quality and reliability of network connections. Container Management Containerized software that pushes container images to remote sites for consistent application performance and availability while reducing the connectivity cost. Remote VPN The remote worker can access the data center by PC VPN login with 4 simple steps, greatly reducing the remote office roll-out time. The future of work is work-from-anywhere. With Edgecore’s WFA solution, delivering an in-office experience to workers, wherever they are, isn’t a pipe dream. The flexibility and openness of the solution proactively prepares organizations for an ever-changing future.” TT Hsu, Vice President of Edgecore Networks About Edgecore Networks Edgecore Networks Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Accton Technology Corporation, the leading networking ODM.
