Navigant Japan

July 3, 2019

Japan can be considered the most industrialized nation in Asia Pacific, with geographic, technology, and market dynamics all pointing toward greater reliance on renewable distributed energy resources (DER). Though the market for virtual power plants (VPPs) is nascent in Asia Pacific (see Chart 1-1), it has the potential to grow into a major hotbed of VPP innovation spanning both commercial and industrial (C&I) and residential customers. While Asia Pacific ranks third among major regions for VPPs according to Navigant Research,1 it is expected to move into second place within the decade. A series of market reforms have set the stage for VPPs and other DER management platforms such as microgrids and DER management system.

Network as a programmable service

whitePaper | November 10, 2021

Over the past decade, the cloud has become integral to nearly every digital and business transformation strategy, allowing clients to access the latest technologies, such as IoT, high-performance computing, and blockchain from multiple vendors to reimagine business processes and ecosystems. However, the network and the inter-connectivity across physical infrastructure, virtual infrastructure, and “as-a-service” ingestion points hinder or block broad cloud adoption across the enterprise. Traditional networking approaches make it difficult to keep pace with change and take advantage of new and differentiating technology. Today’s leading network service providers are virtualizing the network, separating the proprietary network appliance functions into discrete hardware and software components. This enables networks to achieve the same benefits already realized with the virtualization and software-defined enablement of systems and storage. The virtualization of the network is recognized as Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Virtualized Network Functions (VNF).

Dell EMC VxRail vSAN Stretched-Cluster Planning Guide

whitePaper | November 20, 2019

vCenter Server is the centralized platform for managing a VMware environment. It is the primary point of management for both server virtualization and vSAN and is the enabling technology for advanced capabilities such as vMotion, Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) and HA. vCenter scales to enterprise levels where a single vCenter can support up to 1000 hosts (VxRail nodes) and 10,000 virtual machines. vCenter supports a logical hierarchy of datacenters, clusters, and hosts, which allow resources to be segregated by use cases or lines of business and allow resources to be moved as needed dynamically. This is all done from a single interface.

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.
