Virtualized RAN Challenges Debunked

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.

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.

How Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Can Help Your Business Survive the Pandemic—And Prevailin the Future

whitePaper | December 6, 2022

Growing demand for remote working solutions in light of the pandemic is bolstering the case for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) adoption. In this white paper, we discuss why VDI is best suited for today’s business environments, especially since remote work is poised to play a big role both now and in the “new normal” of a post-COVID-19 world. We discuss VDI’s main advantages, its shortcomings and what can be done to address them.
