"The market for so-called ‘Cloud Computing’ is perhaps one of the least understood but most widely discussed topics in the field of IT this decade. Originally a simple icon for the bits of a Network which customers did not want or need, the humble Cloud has come to represent anything from Networks to computing infrastructure to full applications. Anywhere you see a Cloud you’re also likely to encounter an acronym usually ending in the letters ‘aaS’ which means ‘as a Service’. This tells you more about what’s changed in the IT world than the Cloud itself. We’re beginning the transition to the whole of IT being delivered, not as a collection of parts, but as a ready-to-use service."

NetFoundry Extends Edge Computing and Private 5G Use Cases via Integration with Azure Edge Zones

Article | April 2, 2020

NetFoundry has announced a new embedded networking solution within Microsoft Azure Edge Zones. According to NetFoundry, the integration will allow businesses to easily and securely tap into the power of edge compute and optional private 5G for use cases, including industrial IoT, near-real time video processing, and analytics.Microsoft Azure Private Edge Zones enable application workloads to span edges and clouds with a common Azure experience, APIs, and security. NetFoundry's integration facilitates direct connections between businesses and Azure Private Edge Zones without deploying extra network gear. This capability is particularly important at edge sites that often lack space, power, and cooling. With the NetFoundry embedded networking solution, all applications, from edge to cloud, can use any Internet connection, instantly joining a NetFoundry-powered zero trust, high-performance network. Zero trust security is an industry-accepted architecture that assumes "zero trust" of actors and protocols both outside and inside an organization.The NetFoundry platform enables businesses to securely and reliably connect distributed compute environments, providing zero trust, high-performance networking as a service (NaaS) from edge to cloud, and everywhere in between.

How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | April 8, 2020

The telecom industry has always evolved to take advantage of newer, better technologies as they become available starting with 1G and evolving into 4G, and now 5G. In fact, the pace of technology adoption will accelerate with 5G. Technologies such as virtualization, cloud native, cloud computing, edge computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, network slicing, automation, management and orchestration are all key components in enabling the use cases and business models that are expected to come with 5G. These technologies will contribute to the high-performance, high-capacity, high-reliability and low-latency associated with 5G, all delivered at a low total cost of ownership (TCO). This combination of high performance and low TCO is essential, both in addressing the exponential growth in data traffic and in handling the increasing number of IoT devices.
