Why you can't ignore dynamic cloud security

Suppose you’re throwing a party at your office (to celebrate your success with deploying cloud security at your organization). Word has gotten out… a bit more than you expected. Too many people are coming, and many of them aren't even employees or clients. Things could easily get out of hand. But you can’t cancel the party, or it will look like your company is having trouble. You start thinking about, well… security. Unpredictability makes security harder. You just can’t know for sure what will happen. You think about hiring someone to help you. What kind of guardian do you need? Someone intimidating? Good at combat? Maybe just someone with a nose for finding troublemakers? I’m reminded of Roadhouse, the 80s B-movie classic starring Patrick Swayze as Dalton, a midwestern bar bouncer, who is also some kind of Zen master.

How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | March 3, 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.
