Cigniti Enhances its 5G Assurance Focus With innovate5G Partnership
Cigniti Technologies, a global leader in independent quality engineering and software testing services, expands its portfolio of pioneering innovative digital assurance and experience solutions for next generation 5G technologies by forming a strategic partnership with innovate5G.

As companies move to 5G, they are going to be challenged in optimizing for the plethora of possibilities that 5G has to offer and with that, customer expectations and demand for new services will increase at a rapid pace. So, whether it be enhanced video, telehealth, adaptive manufacturing, AR/VR, gaming, consumer IoT services, connected vehicles, to name just a few, the pivot to the 5G paradigm will be significant as will the manner in which these new solutions are rolled out.

Embracing this new horizon of transformation and realization of 5G networks - machine type communication (mMTC), enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) – creates the mandate for a new paradigm of digital assurance. innovate5G’s in5Genius platform combined with Cigniti’s 5G Assurance capabilities, creates an end-to-end assurance model for organizations that are leveraging 5G as the backbone for their business and consumer applications, IoT, and edge computing.

“The promised benefits of 5G - high-speed networks, increased capacity and minimal latency – creates a new dimension for companies to exploit across business and consumer applications, as well as with IoT. But what comes will be new architectures supporting the intrinsic relationship between the applications/IoT devices and the network. Our partnership with innovate5G, further enables Cigniti’s Digital Assurance services to best support our clients’ 5G initiatives with speed, reliability and predictability.”

Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is a software architecture that manages multiple clustered nodes of tightly-integrated server, networking and storage technology together as a whole unit. HCI has matured to offer standard enterprise features, however implementation differences between vendors can affect performance, limit efficacy of enterprise features, and complicate cluster management.

Chef Updates Tool for Managing IT Infrastructure as Code

devops | April 29, 2020

Chef today updated its tool for automating the management of IT infrastructure as part of an effort to further eliminate the need to rely on manual processes that generally fail to scale. Interest in automating the management of IT infrastructure is expected to accelerate considerably in the wake of the economic downturn brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many IT teams are likely to be considerably reduced in size. The remaining IT staff will need to automate the management of IT at much greater degrees than ever before. Much of that infrastructure soon may also be residing in a public cloud rather than in an on-premises IT environment.
