  • Why Use HARDWARE Appliances for SOFTWARE-Defined WAN?

    Enterprises are investigating software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) to save networking costs and gain application control. Hoping to increase customer retention, service providers are rolling out managed SD-WAN offerings. These initial service offerings rely on deploying closed and vendor-specific SD-WAN appliances at the customer site. With so much buzz in the SD-WAN community, it is easy to forget that ...

  • Could Hacked Robots Pose Physical Dangers?

    Your robot might beat you up. It sounds like a tired sci-fi cliché, but it’s true. Early last month, security firm IOActive released research that documented the sorry state of robotic security. The firm found lots of problems – and did so without looking very hard. The research covered home, business and industrial robots from six companies: SoftBank Robotics, UBTECH Robotics, ROBOTIS, Universal ...

  • The Where, When and Why of Dark Fiber

    Enterprises looking to improve connectivity across the internet of things and other wide-area data ecosystems basically have two choices when it comes to fiber optics: purchasing leased line services from a telecommunications carrier or implementing its own network using dark fiber. Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages, but in terms of cost and flexibility many organizations are...

  • Reincarnated Network Functions (RNFs)

    You're probably familiar with network functions virtualization (NFV) and its virtual network functions (VNFs) as a means to provide software replacement of dedicated hardware, aka physical network functions (PNFs). The ETSI NFV ISG has formally described the NFV architecture and its use cases, highlighting the agility and flexibility of software. What impact VNFs will have is less clear. “Software...

  • The Wi-Fi Alliance Pushes Timing Indoors

    The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) does a good job of methodically increasing the distance that 802.11 – Wi-Fi – can cover and the amount of data that can be transmitted. The key now is to make sure that services within the areas covered offer the same level of quality as other wireless approaches. The organization has taken two steps towards that goal this year. A key c...

  • Applications: The Real Drivers of 5G Infrastructure Requirements

    Discussions around 5G tend to focus on radio technologies and frequency bands. As with any innovation, the technical aspects are important, but they are a means, not an end. Furthermore, the deployment of 5G will require a tremendous expenditure of time and money. Why will operators invest their precious resources in 5G? The answer is applications and revenue. The real drivers behind the 5G rollou...

  • One Thing We Do Know About 5G: It’s Inevitable!

    4G as a mobile telecommunications technology has been bandied around for over a decade or so and has appeared prematurely in several guises, predominately due to industry rumors, gossip and, alas, hype. Progressive Steps to a New Generation I do my best to no longer think in terms of 2G and 3G since in the UK we are building up the expectation of the 4G network. Incidentally, this is not backward ...

    Synchronization is now an enabler for many high-value services. In the case of new mobile technologies, it’s even a prerequisite for service availability. Quite simply – if you don’t have sync you don’t have service! Synchronization enables business and if ever the flow of dollars is stopped someone will pay. With this kind of value attached, it’s no surprise that there’s so much interest both in ...

  • Unlocking Innovation: Could Hackathons Be the Key?

    As engineers at a global company with competition around every corner, we believe that continuous innovation is the key to competitive differentiation. But innovation is an elusive thing and doesn’t appear on demand. The popular image we have when we think of innovation is that of the lone engineer having a light-bulb moment. Sometimes it does happen that way, but true light-bulb moments are unpre...

  • Welcome to the New Enterprise Edge

    One of the biggest challenges the enterprise faces with the advent of big data and the internet of things is what to do about the network edge. Emerging data patterns require an edge that is not only distributed across a wide area, largely on third-party infrastructure that is beyond the direct control of IT, but one that can handle a much broader set of responsibilities than traditional security ...

  • How Can the Financial Industry Meet New Timestamping Regulations?

    Financial markets are currently governed by strict rules; one of these being the requirement to record when a deal has been brokered. Typically, the finance industry has logged this by day, date and time. However, new rules to be introduced in 2018 will mean much more stringent parameters are put in place. The US Securities and Exchange Commission will implement Rule 613 stipulating all machine-to...

Aimed at producing the levels of accuracy necessary for 5G, enhanced PRTCs (ePRTCs) go far beyond the current technology. While the time output of today’s PRTCs should be acc...

  • Bad Marriage: Botnets and the IoT Spell Big Danger

    Beginning a post on cyber security with the observation that the threat being discussed is frightening is a bit redundant. They all are frightening.  Very often, today’s threats are more dangerous because they are a mix of multiple things that, when combined, are more potent than the sum of their parts. In this case, four elements are present: botnets, DDoS attacks, the internet of things (IoT) a...

Few enterprises, however, rely solely on their own data center anymore. Advanced cloud environmen...

  • Closing the Security Gap: Automation and Trust at the Network Edge

    Unsecure edge devices are challenging our economies and our societies. We have experienced major hacking attacks on edge devices such as cameras and DSL routers.

And yet, in just a few years, gigabit has become a common offering. It’s far from universall...
