Internal pressure fluctuations in telecommunications equipment put significant stress on the housing seals, which over time can result in compromising the seals and the equipment’s reliability. These fluctuations are most frequently caused by sudden weather and temperature changes in the outdoor environments in which the equipment must operate. Once the seals fail, contaminants such as rain, dust, and dirt can enter the housing and cause premature failure of the electronics. GORE® Protective Vents are engineered to eliminate stress

RADCOM Launches Cloud-Native, Automated 5G Assurance on Amazon Web Services

RADCOM | September 01, 2021

RADCOM Ltd. today announced the launch of RADCOM ACE on Amazon Web Services (AWS), providing real-time subscriber analytics and advanced troubleshooting for telecom operators adopting cloud for rolling out 5G, Internet of Things, and edge services as well as operators already running 4G and VoLTE networks. RADCOM ACE helps operators enhance the Mobile Wireless CX (Customer Experience) and ensure service quality on a public cloud. The integration of RADCOM ACE with AWS enables operators to dynamically deploy an automated, cloud-native service assurance platform while utilizing AWS to scale efficiently and reduce time to market. "We're excited to be working with Amazon to provide telecom operators a fully integrated, cloud-native service assurance solution for deploying and optimizing 5G, 4G and VoLTE services on the AWS cloud and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) for on-premises implementations," said Hilik Itman, RADCOM's Chief Operating Officer. "Telecom operators will be able to use AWS Cloud, and Amazon Managed Kubernetes Services along with RADCOM ACE to simplify 5G rollouts and smartly manage network services more automatically." RADCOM ACE provides end-to-end network coverage, dynamic slice management, and advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based anomaly detection algorithms to quickly pinpoint and resolve network degradations. As a result, RADCOM believes its solution is uniquely positioned to help operators overcome the challenges of rolling out new 5G standalone networks. Running as a cloud-native function within the AWS cloud and leveraging a microservices-based architecture, RADCOM ACE is deployed, scaled, and managed through Amazon EKS. Additionally, RADCOM ACE supports the Control and User Plane Separation (CUPS) architecture. Operators deploying 5G Next Generation Radio Access Network (NG-RAN) usually split the UPF function at the edge in addition to the split on the RAN side. As a result, it can benefit from elasticity, scalability, and cost-efficiency in OPEX and CAPEX. Due to its patented CUPS solution, RADCOM ACE enables operators to smartly monitor these edge deployments by correlating the control plane data in real-time, which is critical for gaining visibility into the subscriber experience and optimizing network performance. In addition, RADCOM ACE reduces Mean Time to Resolution. It provides a fully integrated Continuous Development/Continuous Integration pipeline for rapid product customizations and automated testing, so services are continually monitored 24/7/365 from the edge to the core. Being controlled by Amazon EKS—a container-based orchestration system—provides operators with a closed-loop automated approach to assurance in the cloud for large-scale networks, thus enabling operators to deliver an improved customer experience while saving operational costs using minimal data center resources in implementing end-to-end automation. RADCOM ACE employs patented load-balancing, packet-brokering technology for cloud environments, containerized probing for capturing and processing network packets, and real-time streaming analytics for capturing and processing network events and event detail records. By combining innovative cloud-native technologies, advanced 5G capabilities, and utilizing AI/Machine Learning (ML), RADCOM ACE provides operators with a dynamic, automated service assurance solution for deploying and optimizing 5G services on the AWS cloud and Amazon EKS for on-premises implementations.

The Global Telecoms Supply Chain is Strangling Geopolitics

prnewswire | January 12, 2021

Prohibiting Chinese sellers from Western nations' 5G arrangements on the grounds of supposed gear security concerns will detrimentally affect 5G rollouts and innovation advancement for the years to come. As per new examination by worldwide tech warning firm ABI Research, barring Huawei from arrangements will postpone the 5G rollout by quite a while and trouble network administrators with extra expenses of a few billion dollars to supplant existing framework. "Our research shows that banning Huawei and ZTE from 5G deployments and restricting their access to silicon and semiconductor supply chains will have severe implications on economic performances. Furthermore, banning these Chinese vendors will hamper 5G and 6G R&D," says Leo Gergs, Research Analyst for 5G Markets at ABI Research. First and foremost, restricting vendors from 5G deployments poses consequential economic implications for network operators. Gergs explains, "Banning Huawei and ZTE not only imposes additional costs for operators having to replace Huawei equipment from existing network deployments but also restricts the vendor landscape, reducing the degree of competition within the market. This imperfect competition inevitably decreases downward pricing pressure, forcing network operators to pay higher costs for network equipment than if they were under perfect competition conditions." Most importantly, confining merchants from 5G organizations presents noteworthy monetary ramifications for network administrators. Gergs clarifies, "Prohibiting Huawei and ZTE not just forces extra expenses for administrators supplanting Huawei gear from existing organization arrangements yet in addition confines the seller scene, diminishing the level of rivalry inside the market. This blemished rivalry unavoidably diminishes descending estimating pressure, driving organization administrators to pay greater expenses for network hardware than if they were under wonderful rivalry conditions." On top of financial impacts, a Huawei boycott will likewise have serious ramifications on 5G normalization. Huawei and other Chinese telco organizations are among the top givers for 5G related patent revelations to the third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). "Taking Huawei from the chance to adapt this R&D venture will make Huawei reevaluate and decline their endeavors. Accordingly, rollout and advancement of 5G will endure on a public level as well as universally," clarifies Gergs. "Regulators need to be very careful and avoid taking a politically motivated decision on economic and technology matters," warns Gergs. "To ensure that 5G can unveil its true transformative effect to the world, regulators and political bodies need to prevent the 5G rollout from becoming a bargaining chip for geopolitical interests." At the heart of this, regulators and politicians need to fully understand what's at stake by banning these vendors. "If certain network equipment was found to be insecure from a technology point of view, a healthy and unrestricted economic market would naturally move away from these infrastructure components. This would happen without the political intervention, which is harmful to the economy and will jeopardize the immense value that 5G and future generations of cellular connectivity will bring to societies around the globe," Gergs concludes. These discoveries are from ABI Research's Impact of Huawei Restrictions on 5G Markets application investigation report. This report is important for the organization's 5G Markets research administration, which incorporates examination, information, and expert experiences. In view of broad essential meetings, Application Analysis reports present inside and out examination on key market patterns and factors for a particular innovation.
