  • Nokia claims end-to-end 4G and 5G New Radio slicing first

    Nokia claims to have stolen a march on its rivals by being the first supplier to offer end-to-end slicing network functionality for 4G and 5G New Radio (NR) networks.

    One of the key potential benefits of 5G networks is the ability to build scalable and dedicated logical/virtual networks, and recent research from Amdocs revealed that such capability is a top concern for communication service providers (CSPs) and operators. Amdocs surveyed 50 global CSPs and found that 54% were already trialling a 5G network slicing system, while 30% plan to trial one by the end of 2020.

    Nokia believes that although

  • 5G now available in 378 cities globally

    Research from network test, monitoring and assurance technology provider Viavi Solutions has revealed a surge in the roll-out of 5G networks across the globe.

    According to its fourth annual The state of 5G deployments report, as the battle for 5G supremacy heats up, a number of operators are blanketing the largest global population centres, with as many as five communications service providers (CSPs) deploying 5G in cities such as Los Angeles and New York.

    As of January 2020, commercial 5G networks have been deployed in 378 cities across 34 countries.

    The country boasting the most cities with 5G availability is

  • Oxbotica on board with Cisco to drive autonomous vehicle data challenge

    Autonomous vehicle software specialist Oxbotica has struck a partnership with Cisco to unlock the potential of fully connected autonomous vehicle (AV) fleets, aiming to enable seamless and secure sharing of high-volume data while on the move.

    The partners calculate that AVs make 150 independent vehicle detections every second and generate up to 80GB of data per driven-hour from sensors such as lidar, cameras and radar, as well as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) logs. This constant activity means amassing 1.2TB of data in a 16-hour day, much of which is gathered when the vehicle returns to base.

  • How to find the right zero trust strategy

    In 2019, Forrester reported that zero trust (ZT) would hit the mainstream in Europe. Security and risk professionals in international organisations with European operations need to understand how to apply zero trust.

    Forrester has developed a zero-trust extended framework to guide chief information security officers (CISOs) with their zero-trust strategies.

    Zero trust is a conceptual architectural model that uses microperimeters and microsegmentation to secure corporate networks. The approach increases data security through obfuscation techniques, limits the risks associated with excessive user privileges, and dramatically improves security detection and response through analytics and automation.

  • Datacentres operators must move away from diesel backup generators to give back to grid

    Until datacentre operators transition their backup generators from diesel to cleaner alternatives, they should not be used to power datacentres for extended periods of time or feed energy back into the grid.

    While the UK government’s most recent projections expect massive growth in renewable energy up to 2035, plans to close all the remaining coal plants by 2025 and retire the majority of Britain’s current nuclear reactors by 2030 suggests there is a real possibility of a low-carbon energy gap in the 2030s.

    At the same time, datacentres are proliferating to meet the increasing demand for digital data, which will
