5G is on the horizon, and alongside it all of those use cases we’ve seen demonstrated or have heard are in development and under test: connected driverless cars, virtual and augmented reality, remote robotic surgery, smart city infrastructure, wearables. The list is endless, and can be further extended with the whole host of applications we’re […]

The Future of Connected Automotives Conversation about the future of the connected automotive industry has been accelerating at pace, and will continue to do so throughout 2018. Interest and investment has gained momentum thanks to the media, car manufacturers, data scientists, technology developers, telcos and operators, regulators, governments and chipset providers, with everyone keen to […]

In 2007, the iPhone revolution threw mobile operators off guard. They simply weren’t prepared for the huge increase in mobile data usage the devices stimulated. The iPhone set the foundation for smartphones to become the consumer’s gateway to the internet, superseding both laptops and desktop PCs. Operators took years to develop the network infrastructure that […]

Everyone’s talking about 5G. Industries as diverse as healthcare, agriculture, automotive, broadcast, utilities and public safety – to name but a few – have all been strategizing how they can use the new connectivity standard to drive efficiencies, improve business and enhance the end-user experience. There is a need to define and trial use cases […]

Network functions virtualisation (NFV); a concept which would have sounded unachievably futuristic a decade ago, is now very real and very exciting, yet there is slight apprehension for some. It is much like the intriguing, but tentative reception to autonomous vehicles; you know the technology is there, and you sense that it is safe, but […]

A New Approach to Network Architecture Fulfilling the potential of 5G will bring the need not only for new air interfaces and frequency bands, but also for an innovative and more dynamic approach to network architecture. 5G networks will have to be capable of providing flexible allocation of computing resources in order to enable all […]

It’s official: the DDoS attack on Dyn in October was not just huge but a record breaker, earning the unenviable badge of world’s largest Distributed Denial of Service hack. Scott Hilton, Executive Vice President of Products at Dyn, placed the number of infected IoT devices at the source of the attack at 100,000, with peaks […]

With more than 10 standards already being proposed for low-power applications related to the Internet of Things, it seems reasonable to ask why we might need another one. Yet NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT), which forms part of the LTE-Advanced Pro (3GPP Release 13) standard that was finalised in June 2016, is perhaps the most eagerly-anticipated new […]

4G network operators are keen to implement VoLTE in order to be able to deliver a high quality voice experience to their subscribers, and to reduce their dependence on fall-back to 3G technology for voice calls. At the same time they want to keep costs down by carrying voice traffic over all-IP networks, and are […]

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) solutions have the potential to greatly improve the overall security of an enterprise’s data, by enhancing the security which an employee gains access to the data and/or a service. We can see today, that a vast majority of enterprises enable their employees with tools or services which are both internal […]
