Athonet Announces Bring Your Own RAN™ Program for Private Networks

Athonet | November 15, 2021

Athonet, a global leader in private network technology, today introduced Bring Your Own RAN™ (BYORAN™) program enabling organizations to choose the combination of radio products that meet the needs of the mix of applications in the enterprise or service provider setting; all managed from a single cloud-based dashboard.

Mobile Experts predicts the total private LTE/5G market opportunity over the next six years to exceed $45 billion, including services. Kyung Mun, principal analyst at Mobile Experts, stated, "Providing options in how private networks are deployed and managed will be a key to this growth and adoption. Organizations are looking at best-of-breed but need integrated private LTE and 5G solutions, which makes the concept of 'Bring Your Own RAN' appealing."

The Athonet cloud-based private network management system not only allows the organization to choose their own radio, but enables them to run different radios concurrently in their private network. For example, a different radio may be used indoor compared to outdoor to hit the required coverage and performance targets. IT managers can also view all the radios in a single dashboard without logging in/out of different management platforms.

Many radio vendors have already been tested for interoperability and their respective management tools integrated into the portal. The program is open to all radio vendors.

"Athonet is changing the way private networks are built and managed with this new private network management dashboard which can be located adjacent to the core on premise or hosted in the cloud,All radios are connected to a core. We are taking all the traffic connected to our core and consolidating the data so you have a single pane of glass to get all information from all radios and core elements. Now these radios are not just connected, but easily managed in a centralized place."

Martin Jensen, vice president, Solution Architecture, Athonet

The advantage of this solution is the management of the entire system can always be accessed from a single point with a single pane of glass regardless if the core is deployed as a single or multiple instance or fully in the cloud, on premise, or as a hybrid architecture.

BYORAN by Athonet will be demonstrated in booth #206 at Enterprise 5G Live in Santa Clara, CA on November 16-17, 2021.  Some of the RAN vendors that were tested and approved for interoperability in Athonet's lab will be showcased at the conference.

At Enterprise 5G Live, Athonet will be presenting on a panel highlighting the benefits of private networks for retail on Tuesday, November 17 at 1:30pm PT.

Quantum Introduces Myriad™ Software-Defined All-Flash Storage Platform for the Enterprise

Quantum | April 04, 2023

Quantum Corporation, the leader in solutions for video and unstructured data, announces Quantum Myriad™, an all-flash, scale-out file and object storage software platform for the enterprise. Leveraging advances in application frameworks and design that were not available even a few years ago, Myriad's modern cloud-native architecture makes it an easy-to-use solution that overcomes the limitations of hardware-centric designs and enables customers to adapt to future storage needs while reducing the burden on over-extended IT staff. More than double the amount of data will be created in the next five years than was in the previous ten, according to IDC*. Yet most enterprises continue to store this data on systems that were designed 20 years ago and cannot take advantage of the latest flash and memory technologies available today. Even more recent all-flash file and object storage solutions rely on specialized hardware and won't run natively in the cloud, leading to tradeoffs, compromises, and complexity. Myriad solves these challenges with an all new shared-nothing architecture designed for the latest flash technologies to deliver consistent low-latency performance at any scale. It introduces inline data services such as deduplication and compression, snapshots and clones, and metadata tagging to accelerate AI/ML data processing.

The software operates on standard high-volume flash storage servers so IT teams can quickly adopt the latest hardware and storage infrastructure for future needs. With Myriad, enterprises can replace legacy disk-based storage systems with a software-defined, all-flash platform that provides faster performance, greater scale, and a more sustainable and green solution that is both power and real estate efficient. "To keep pace with data growth, the industry has "thrown hardware" at the problem," says Brian Pawlowski, chief development officer, Quantum. "Integrating feedback from customers, partners and industry analysts on what's missing from current solutions in market, we took a totally different approach with Myriad, and the result is the architecture I've wanted to build for 20 years. Myriad is incredibly simple, incredibly adaptable storage software for an unpredictable future."
