Broadband already is offering pay-TV operators better margins than their traditional video services. The ability to leverage multiple data sources and analytics engines - "big data" - will bring further intelligence to their smart pipe and help operators deliver expanded services to households, generating new revenue opportunities.
To ensure a sustainable competitive advantage, CSPs must evolve their current static and inflexible processes into fully programmable and machine-learned, closed-loop decision systems.
With the advent of cloud technology, software-defines networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV), data center and telecom operators are transforming their data center architectures.
Managed WiFi services are a rapidly growing revenue source for residential service providers. Resolving customer WiFi problems helps improve customer relationships and the customer experience and provides the opportunity to upsell broadband services.
WiFi Advisor is the first wireless LAN analyzer built for installers at all skill levels.
Numerous challenges lurk at the mobile service layer, from security for IoT to the promise of 5G. The reality is that service delivery is continuously evolving and at dramatic speed. This report presents a broad and granular view of the state of mobile service delivery.
This white paper describes a management and orchestration layer, that integrates with current network virtualization and SDN technologies, enabling network operators to create adaptable IP/MPLS wide area networks that can be reconfigured quickly to accommodate different business requirements.
The Challenge of Securing and Managing Today's Complex Network Environments.
Fortinet Security Fabric and the Threat Landscape
Scale and Segment the Cloud. Security Solutions for Private Public and Hybrid Clouds
As more devices are connected to enterprise networks, the average security profile and baseline of the endpoint is rapidly decreasing. Listen to this webinar which discusses how webinar will discuss how evolving network security controls that can mitigate some of these IoT device security threats.
Validating service chaining and interoperability is an essential step to proving in the operational readiness of NFV-based network offers. Read this whitepaper summarizing Interoperability testing sponsored by the New IP Agency - NIA -where Fortinet shows how our Fortigate-VM - functions as a VNF providing next gen Firewall Security Functions in a service chain.
Most analysts expect that 5G networks will begin operating in 2020, but 5G development has already begun, spurred on by new technology and high demand for 5G connectivity.
As communication service providers (CSPs) seek to improve operational efficiency in the face of exponential network growth, virtualization and greater competition, they have twin objectives; to increase both agility and automation.
When it comes to audience engagement, the landscape has been completely rewritten. Media and entertainment companies need to embrace new technologies to achieve revenue goals. The Adobe guide, Play to Win in Audience Intelligence, shows you how.
By 2025, it's projected that consumers will purchase 70 million virtual reality devices every year. This creates a major opportunity for TV networks and MVPDs to go beyond the smartphone and tablet and engage customers in a whole new immersive world.
What are the key trends that drive the design of tomorrow's utility networks? how does IoT fit in? This white paper reviews the path to future networks.
ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile Internet, has proposed the service development trend of "Zero Touch Evolution
In recent years, some operators have encountered large area network outages, which cost them massively. Traditional HLRs become isolated data islands, which makes it hard to manage and find value of data. Read more in this white paper by ZTE.
This SDON Whitepaper issued by ZTE details the core technologies that may be involved in the SDON development and gives deployment suggestions.
IMS, as the technology on which this ambition rests, can achieve Fixed Mobile Convergence, help operator provide abundant multimedia services, and also serves as a critical component of VoLTE commercial launch.
This paper outlines some high-speed standards for next-generation communications and describes some physical-layer measurement techniques, targeting the era of 5G and IoT.
Spectrum regulators are recognizing the need to open up new spectrum to support the rapidly growing use of high speed data. This white paper outlines procedures to make mmWave in-building propagation predictions and measurements.
As the radio interface of mobile phones has evolved, it has typically been changed about every 10 years, and the 5G interface is expected to start being used in the 2020s. This Guide discusses: ITU-R's vision of 5G, 3GPP activities for 5G and new functionalities in 5G.
In this paper we will look at the industry requirements and use cases being used to form and define 5G networks and technologies. Topics include: requirements, spectrum, standards and technologies and testing challenges.
5G implementations will require wider bandwidths and probably higher carrier frequencies which will complicate the characterization of power amplifiers and other components. This paper will reflect structures, calibrations and examples of measurement improvements.
