To successfully plan, build, and deploy new 5G services, mobile network operators must have a holistic view of active and passive assets and maintain an accurate and up-to-date inventory of all physical, logical, and virtual network resources. Unified resource management is the common foundation on which an end-to-end 5G network is built and plays a make-or-break role in activities such as cell site acquisition, merger … Continue reading Industry Expertise: Unified Resource Management for 5G Network Deployments
Due to the pandemic, we’ve spent the past two years ushering in new ways of doing things. Sales teams have learned how to connect with business partners and customers online, project managers virtually oversee execution from remote sites, and engineers can determine the right system architecture via video calls. One thing these modifications all have in common is that they all rely on telecommunication and … Continue reading The Importance of a Unified Resource Management Solution to Support Cloudification, Digital Twins, and 5G Rollouts
Every telecommunications company will, at some time, need to consolidate inventory systems or replace a legacy inventory management solution. One common reason is to address new technology challenges such as 5G rollouts or hybrid, VNF-based networks. These technologies have requirements that many current management systems are not able to handle. Virtual network functions, 5G, FTTx, and flex-grid optical networks all require more advanced methods than … Continue reading Industry Expertise: How to Achieve Zero Downtime Data Migration
The cloud and hybrid IT bring flexibility to infrastructure managementThe use of the cloud as part of a cloud-first or hybrid IT strategy increases the complexity of infrastructures. With the cloud shift, its components become more dynamic, volatile and short-lived. While this means the amount of information about the infrastructure grows, the validity of the information decreases. Infrastructure managers need to adopt an integrated documentation … Continue reading Industry Expertise: IT Trends Transforming Infrastructure Management
