Introduction to 5G

The 5G mobile communications standard is designed to fulfill several performance and use case requirements currently not possible in 4G networks, including: Enhanced broadband that brings fiber-optic speeds and bandwidth to over-the-air (OTA) connections Low latencies and extreme reliability for realtime OTA process control Much higher device densities that will enable the massive Internet of […]

A Forward Glance at 5G: Applying Backwards Thinking

It was the technology visionary Steve Jobs (1955–2011) who expanded the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard’s (1813–1855) philosophical quote which originally said, “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” Steve applied this notion to technology saying, “You cannot connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So […]

Why Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) Is Your Next Mobility Management Practice

With Microsoft’s Intune Graph APIs, partners can pull PCs, tablets and smartphones under one policy and control umbrella, commonly described as unified endpoint management, or UEM. That should be music to the ears of any partner with a mobility management practice — but beware Windows desktop admins seeking to preserve the status quo. Learn about […]

Automated Peering Engineering – Peering optimization in a modern internet world

The routing mechanism currently used for internet peering has remained largely unchanged over the past few decades, but it is fraught with problems. It still relies heavily on slow manual configuration, which requires skilled engineers and is laborious and errorprone. Added to this, the lack of visibility and the limitations of the Border Gateway Protocol […]
