Realizing Carrier Wi-Fi

Mobile data consumption is growing exponentially with the rapid growth of smartphones/tablets and bandwidth-hungry applications (Video/Music Streaming, Rich Media Communication and personal Cloud services, etc.) that they run. Analysts predict that Wireless Data Traffic will increase by 300% in 2017, compared with what it was in 2012.


Life,Death and CloudComputing
Jasbir Singh Dhaliwal - Global Program Manager | January 22, 2020

Blog is an interesting take on cloud computing fundamentals and how these fundamentals mimic human life and life philosophies. Cloud technology (as we all know) is major technological disruption in the field of computing - democratizing the compute, networking and storage functions and providing immense “value for money”. It is very easy to get bogged down by technical jargons associated with any new technology and “cloud computing” is no different. Availability of cloud computing from myriad of vendors further complicates the whole cloud ecosystem. The blog provides a simplistic explanation of what, how and where of “cloud computing”. The content should be of interest to both technical and non-technical readers and even the seasoned cloud users should find the content relevant. The blog is a good mix of knowledge, suspense and humour. This blog also highlights the fact that spirituality has potential to permeate every aspect of our life (including seemingly unrelated “cloud computing”).


5G Acceleration through Intelligent Connectivity
Manas Sahu - Sales Director | October 17, 2019
213 Views

There is a plethora of innovation happening in the telco eco-system to define a new business paradigm based on 5G architecture. While we can assume every innovation is an acceleration, the author talks about the linear acceleration which helps the 4G to 5G transition seamless and less overwhelming.  In other words instead of directly jumping on to a new 5G network, carriers needs to address the current sub optimal 4G infrastructure to deliver higher speed with guaranteed SLAs.


Guidelines for Securing Data in IoT Constrained Node Networks
Vijay Annamalaisamy - Technical Specialist | September 12, 2019
205 Views

Constrained node networks face many challenges like mobility, reliability, scalability, management, availability, interoperability and cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is one of the major concerns of all these challenges. Among all the cybersecurity areas, securing data is very important as it determines both confidentiality and integrity in the CIA (Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability) triad. Conventional data security methods could not be followed for constrained node networks because of the resource constraints. The objective of this blog is to present the guidelines needed to secure the data in constrained node networks in an IoT system.


Introduction to IoT Constrained Node Networks
Vijay Annamalaisamy - Technical Specialist | September 12, 2019

An end to end IoT system includes various networks in an IoT system, type of devices and the applications running in those networks. Constrained node network is deployed as an edge network in an IoT system. There are various classes of constrained nodes based on the memory constraints, network stack and security support. This constrained node network comprises mainly of sensors, actuators and gateways. Sensors and actuators interacts with the external world and communicates to other networks through gateways. Constrained networks cannot use conventional TCP/IP stack and need a new network stack because of its resource constraint nature. These protocols depend on the link layer technologies used. Most common link layer technologies are Zigbee, Thread, BLE & Z-Wave. The firmware design relies heavily on which type of link layer technology is used in a constrained node. Among the various firmware, thread is slowly becoming the de-facto technology for constrained nodes.This blog presents a brief introduction about IoT, its building blocks and then focuses on the constrained node networks, their characteristics, protocols used and the recommended firmware.

Performance Counter Dumper tool dumps the Windows performance counter(s) data set to a file/console. This tool needs the inputs (Category/Counter/Instance) related to performance counters and then either save the file containing the output or display the output on console. From this output, you can easily look for any specific category/counter/instance. This shall save our research time by 60%.This document further describes the tool usage and how the resultant tool output benefits the project productivity


Getting a piece of the Telco Cloud on the ground
Ajitesh Gupta - Senior Solution Director | June 11, 2019
167 Views

Cloud, network slicing, and edge computing technologies and processes are changing the way that it is being put to use for service providers. It has to be admitted that with different purposes, 5G performance expectations are found wanting with current network topology. Under certain requirements of performance for some of the use cases, using edge computing becomes imperative; this necessitates bringing the cloud to the ground. This is particularly true for cases where the key drivers for service providers are ultra-low latency and high throughput.


HCL VNF Onboarding solution for service providers
Ajitesh Gupta - Senior Solution Director | February 14, 2019

Telecom operators are on the way to find new source of revenue as monolithic, vendor oriented and non-agile operational networks are narrowing the profit margins. The cloud technology is a perfect solution for these issues. This technology offers quick scalability and innovation to the telecom operators. The service providers can also take benefits from it in the form of new services and innovative revenue model for their end-users and customers. Telco Cloud Architecture can be embraced by utilizing the Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Network (SDN), distributed computing, and APIs. The telecom operators have the advantages of both quick cloud adaptability and faster cloud ready.


The 5 Minute Guide to SDN (Software Defined Networking)
Yogesh Joshi - Senior Project Manager | February 13, 2019

Cloud computing has taken a the world by storm in a the last decade and it continues to transform IT in unprecedented ways. The real tangible outcome of Cloud Computing is XaaS (everything as a service) which has significant cost- saving benefits (CAPEX/OPEX) for enterprises. Scenarios where apps are majorly deployed in an enterprise network, is are now slowly migrating to cloud, or at least embracing hybrid cloud to lower down the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) .Moore’s law Law which seemeds relevant until now – the law conveys that the per unit computing power doubles in every 18 months. This symbolizes the exponential growth in computing power and therefore in server technology.
