Dense Air 5G infrastructure to deliver coverage infill, private networks

ROHAN PEARCE | December 14, 2018

UK-headquartered Dense Air plans to use its recently acquired licences for 5G spectrum in Australia to primarily deliver services to complement the networks of Australia’s existing mobile operators, with the company viewing carriers as its key customers rather than competitors. Chief executive officer Paul Senior told Computerworld that Dense Air’s aim is to “densify mobile networks” by offering additional capacity in highly populated areas and infill in cell-edge locations, with mobile network operators expected to be its lead customers when it launches commercial services. “We specialise in putting small cells in the places where there’s gaps, or holes if you like, in the macrocell mobile networks,” Senior said. “If you put a small cell inside someone’s office or inside someone’s home, they get a really, really good service because they’re very close to that small cell — so their performance, their quality of experience of that mobile service can be dramatically better. Especially if it’s a location that’s at the edge of coverage of the mobile network.”

To cloud or not to cloud . . . that shouldn’t be the question

Article | February 24, 2020

In my discussions with clients about their journey to cloud, it’s becoming evident that many of them are viewing cloud as a goal, instead of looking at cloud deployments as a capability. In some cases, line-of-business owners are under corporate pressures to “adopt” a cloud-first strategy. A recent Forrester Consulting study commissioned by IBM, “The Key To Enterprise Hybrid Multicloud Strategy”[1] suggests that “75% [of 350 surveyed global decision makers] have received pushback while advocating for strategies outside of cloud environments.” The result of this, unfortunately, is the lack of continued investment on their on-premises (“on-prem”) environments. From my experience, this type of deployment focus may not yield the expected results. We shouldn’t think about problem solving as “To cloud or not to cloud?” Instead, we should ask ourselves, “What is the problem I’m trying to solve?” and “Are cloud deployments (public or private) going to optimize my solution?”

Edge computing environments: what you need to know

Article | March 24, 2020

The saying goes: “If you’re not on the edge, you’re taking up too much space”. And compute itself is now moving to the edge, forcing datacentre operators to wring the last drops of productivity from their infrastructure, ahead of a future supporting multi-sensor internet of things (IoT) devices over 5G for machine learning, and even artificial intelligence (AI). Jennifer Cooke, research director of cloud-to-edge datacentre trends at IDC, says datacentre operators need to start thinking about how many systems they will need to roll out, and the people they will need to support them. “Cost becomes the prohibitive factor,”

How to backup hyperconverged infrastructure

Article | May 4, 2020

Enterprises running hypervisors on hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) systems typically have backup options available to them that are not available to those running on generic hardware. Such customers may also have additional backup challenges depending on the HCI vendor and hypervisor they have chosen. Let’s take a look.
