Affirmed, Intel and Dell EMC Have an Answer for 5G’s Need for Speed

Affirmed, Intel and Dell EMC Have an Answer for 5G’s Need for Speed

July 17, 2019 by

Bring up the topic of 5G services and you’ll hear a lot of ideas, from virtual reality gaming to automated manufacturing floors. Ask how mobile service providers (MSPs) plan to deliver those services, however, and the room usually gets quiet. That is, until now. With the announcement of the first cloud-native 5G core network (5GCN) to support 100 GbE interfaces,...

July 8, 2019 by

The typical network transformation journey would look something like this: Linux, VMs, Containers. But this blog is about the road less taken, and how service providers can pass virtualization by using containers and go directly to the cloud. That’s kind of a revolutionary concept. After all, many in IT have been trained to view virtualization as a necessary evolutionary step....

The arrival of 5G will usher in a new era of high-bandwidth/low-latency applications, break open enterprise markets to mobile service providers, dramatically reduce network costs, make driving exams obsolete and create lasting world peace. That is, if you believe half of the things that you read about it. The reality is that 5G has a good shot at doing some...

Why Meshing Around with Microservices Makes Sense

Why Service Mesh for Microservices Makes Sense

May 16, 2019 by

Containers, Kubernetes and microservices form the foundation of a cloud-native architecture, but they’re not the only considerations. In fact, as I write this, the Cloud-Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is considering adding a fourth pillar to their cloud-native requirements: the service mesh. What is a Service Mesh? When it comes to understanding and managing microservices, the service mesh for microservices is...

April 10, 2019 by

It’s time to take the future back from equipment vendors and return it to the operators and the innovators! Coming from a vendor, that’s a bold statement, so let me explain. For too long, telco operators have leaned on their equipment vendors to provide their platform of the future. Understand this: If you’re looking to a single vendor to solve...
