Transformation Network

Transformation Network

By pwsadmin | May 15, 2021

The Achilles heel of every transformative business model is their reliance on ever increasing amounts of data that need to be transported quickly across wide area networks and processed at edge computing end points. To meet this expected demand, the global telecommunications industry is rapidly moving toward a future in which networks must have the…

Essential Characteristics of Cloud Computing as Digital Transformation

By pwsadmin | May 15, 2021

Hybrid IT blends traditional datacenters, managed service providers, and cloud service providers to deliver the necessary mix of information technology services. This IT consumption model enables a composable infrastructure which describes a framework whose physical compute, storage, and network fabric resources are treated as services. Resources are logically pooled so that administrators no longer need…

4 Factors Driving Digital Transformation ROI The critical assessment factors for cloud ROI risk probability are the following:      Infrastructure utilization Speed of migration to cloud Ability to scale business/mission processes Quality delivered by the new cloud-based process  These four factors directly drive digital transformation ROI because they affect revenue, cost, and the time required to…

Transformation Frameworks

By pwsadmin | May 15, 2021

Digital transformation necessitates changes in an organization’s operational processes. According to Harvard, a focus on operations can lead to business process optimization and entirely new revenue streams. Three common routes for this are the following:      Robotic process automation (RPA) which uses artificial intelligence to automate routine activities      Remote worker enablement that uses workspace virtualization and…

Transformation Infrastructure

Hybrid IT enables a composable infrastructure which describes a framework whose physical compute, storage, and network fabric resources are treated as services. Resources are logically pooled so that administrators need to physically configure hardware to support a specific software application, which describes the function of a composable architecture. This type of transformative infrastructure is foundational…

Essential Characteristics of Cloud Computing as Digital Transformation

By pwsadmin | September 25, 2020

A survey of 2,000 executives conducted by Cognizant in 2016 identified the top five ways digital transformations generate value:      Accelerating speed to market      Strengthening competitive positioning      Boosting revenue growth      Raising employee productivity      Expanding the ability to acquire, engage, and retain customers   Digital transformation is also a cultural change. Cloud Computing as Digital Transformation Since cloud…

Embrace Transformation

By pwsadmin | September 22, 2020

From a business perspective, differentiating business processes and quality customer service are central to overall success. Business leaders must therefore clearly identify and measure how information technology contributes to the value of every key business process. They must also know how to most cost effectively use IT when the task is merely the management of…

Computer Vision Advances Zero-Defect Manufacturing

By pwsadmin | July 25, 2020

by Kevin L. Jackson Electronics manufacturers operate in a challenging environment. It’s hard enough to keep up with the ever-accelerating rate of change in the industry. Now customers want increasingly specialized product variations in less time and of higher quality. Meeting this demand for increased product variation can seriously impact the bottom line. Such variability increases…

Real-Time Analytics Power the Roadway of the Future

By pwsadmin | July 25, 2020

By Kevin L. Jackson The complexities of citywide traffic are pushing the limits of existing transportation management systems. Outdated infrastructure is based on proprietary, single-purpose subsystems, making it costly to acquire, operate, and maintain. And current roadways are simply not prepared for the future of autonomous vehicles. Enter the SPaT Challenge, an initiative encouraging cities and…

Thriving on the Edge: Developing CSP Edge Computing Strategy

By pwsadmin | March 6, 2020

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are facing significant business model challenges. Referred to generally as edge computing, the possibilities introduced by the blending of 5G networks and distributed cloud computing technologies are redefining how CSPs operate, partner, and drive revenue. A new Ericsson Digital whitepaper entitled, “Edge computing and deployment strategies for communication service providers,” addresses these challenges…

The Achilles heel of every transformative business model is their reliance on ever increasing amounts of data that need to be transported quickly across wide area networks and processed at edge computing end points. To meet this expected demand, the global telecommunications industry is rapidly moving toward a future in which networks must have the agility, flexibility, and scalability to deliver aggregated capabilities through fully programmable networks.

Since the late 1970s, new generations of technology and wireless standards have been introduced every decade through the current transition between 4G and 5G capabilities. Limited data capability was provided using circuit-switching under the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) standard. Improved data rates were brought to the market in the late 1990s by using 2.5G and 2.75G technology, which were named GPRS (general packet radio service) and EDGE (enhanced data rates for GSM Evolution). The introduction of the LTE network later set the standard for high-speed wireless communications on mobile devices and data terminals.

Historically, sovereign nations have managed their telecommunications networks as national assets.

The political negotiations that drove that history led to underlying technological choices and today’s

heated international competition around 5G network deployments. In fact, western nations fear that China’s Huawei Technologies’ dominance of 5G technology could give the Chinese government backdoor access to Western mobile networks and the application. This international competition will determine the availability of specific technologies and telecommunications resources in each geographic region.

For 5G networks, data transfer speed, volume, and latency depend on the spectrum bands used and the network usage context (fixed or mobile). MmWave spectrum is a high-frequency technology that lies between 30 GHz and 300 GHz. It is attractive because its shorter wavelengths create narrower beams, which provides better resolution and security for data transmission. A 5G mmWave system requires a significant infrastructure build but could reap the benefits of data transferred at up to twenty times the speed of current 4G LTE networks. MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) increases throughput by using high-quality signals to receive multiple data streams at a reduced power per stream. Massive MIMO can multiply the capacity of a wireless connection without requiring more spectrum, which could potentially deliver a fifty-fold increase in the future.

These network capabilities are substantially superior to previous wireless technology generations and have subsequently set off the rapid development of many new application requirements and functions. With this new infrastructure, application components are placed in an optimal location to use compute and data storage services of the distributed cloud. The distributed cloud approach increases capacity, availability, and coverage while also limiting data transfer requirements. A distributed cloud solution enables edge computing by using micro and small data centers. Application developers must learn how to exploit these new design requirements to deliver ever increasing value to their end users.
