Virtualization Defined - Eight Different Ways

whitePaper | October 4, 2021

Virtualization as a concept is not new; computational environment virtualization has been around since the first mainframe systems. But recently, the term “virtualization” has become ubiquitous, representing any type of process obfuscation where a process is somehow removed from its physical operating environment. Because of this ambiguity, virtualization can almost be applied to any and all parts of an IT infrastructure. For example, mobile device emulators are a form of virtualization because the hardware platform normally required to run the mobile operating system has been emulated, removing the OS binding from the hardware it was written for. But this is just one example of one type of virtualization; there are many defi nitions of the term “virtualization” fl oating around in the current lexicon, and all (or at least most) of them are correct, which can be quite confusing.

Virtualized RAN Challenges Debunked

whitePaper | January 17, 2020

Mobile network operators (MNOs) are now considering ways to take advantage of the benefits that Virtualized RAN (vRAN) can deliver. vRAN gives MNOs greater network availability and better deployment flexibility using pooled, centralized resources that are operating on standardized commercially available hardware. The virtualized functions that provide the network’s baseband processing in vRANs also lower CAPEX and OPEX by reducing cell site real-estate space and the power needs of the equipment that no longer resides on-site.

How BPOs Leverage VDI and NoTouch To Succeed in a Competitive Marketplace

whitePaper | July 12, 2021

Prior to the pandemic, BPOs were able to leverage in office knowledge and leadership to ensure they were meeting and exceeding business critical activities. With the pandemic in full swing, BPO leaders have had to rethink their strategies. Namely, they’ve had to ensure that their entire workforce is able to collaborate effectively while also working remotely. The challenge BPOs face in securing their deployment while streamlining endpoint management and reducing costs might have been made more dire by the pandemic, but it is not over. Luckily, through a combination of VDI and DaaS technologies and Linux based operating systems, BPO companies have a real way forward to solve the challenge of remote and dispersed workforces, enabling them to boost productivity and reduce costs by millions of dollars. This whitepaper seeks to explore the challenges posed by current work trends, the pandemic, and how VDI and Linux Thin Client operating systems can solve the challenges of remote work post pandemic.
