Network operators have been thrust into the spotlight as wireless and wireline networks handle significant traffic shifts... Read more  

Combatting Cloud Security Concerns via the Principle of Least Privilege

Last summer, there was some big news in the cloud-computing space when it was reported that Capital One was hacked. They apprehended the perpetrator, a Seattle-based engineer.

This sent ripples through the industry, with a lot of speculation as to how secure cloud systems really are... Read more  

Doubling Mobile Network Capacity and Throughput

In the early ‘90s the launch of MIMO delivered an enormous mobile network performance boost – effectively doubling the throughput of a frequency band. Similarly, each new cellular generation – 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G – also contributed huge performance gains. One common denominator delivering these impressive results was Moore’s law - a dramatic increase in cost effective computing resources. Unfortunately, in each previous case, a hardware refresh was required to unlock the spectacular benefits. Read more  

5G Roadblocks: The Growing Need for Green Options

As we enter 2020, it is estimated that over 5 billion people worldwide use mobile devices, with smartphones accounting for over half of these connections. Subscribers have seen vast improvements in speed and quality of their mobile interactions as wireless networking technology continues to advance. However, meeting growing demands for fast, consistent connections means overloading existing cells and inevitably building more cell towers, thereby increasing the amount of radio frequency (RF) radiation in the environment and energy needed to power the infrastructure.
