CIO IT Infrastructure Policies - Checklist for Pandemic Planning, WFH and IT Infrastructure Policies based on Mobility

prnewswire | February 23, 2021

The "CIO IT Infrastructure Policy" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. One of the best ways to communicate and understand a company and its operating culture is through its policies. Designing and writing policy and communicating it effectively is an essential skill for professionals to have. By having policy carefully developed and communicated, employees will clearly know what the organization expects from them, the degree of control and independence they will have, and what the benefits and consequences are in regard to adhering to policy.

Research shows that well-run companies are most productive, suffer the least loss of sensitive data, and have less downtime of operations if they have good policies in in place.

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.

Athermal AWG Multi/Demultiplexers in LGX Cassettes for 5G Wireless Fronthaul and High Density DWDM Channel Management

POINTek | September 02, 2021

POINTek, Inc., a global leader and provider of high performance athermal AWGs, announced launching of new Athermal AWG Multi/Demultiplexer (MUX/DMX) products in various LGX cassettes for 5G wireless fronthaul application and high-density DWDM channel management. These products fall into three groups as follows: LGX Cassette with Athermal AWG Brick for Metro Area 5G Wireless Fronthaul This LGX product (see Figure 1) consists of (a) 40-CH DWDM AWG equipped with bidirectional Blue/Red channels which stand distinguished each other for 20-CH upstream (Blue) and 20-CH downstream (Red) traffics and (b) 2-Slot LGX-short cassette equipped with 40-CH LC connectors. This 40-CH DWDM brick packaged in 2-slot LGX-short cassette supports solidly point-to-point 5G DWDM wireless fronthaul with bidirectional Blue/Red 20-CH DWDM Upstream and 20-CH DWDM Downstream ports. The 2-Slot front panel accommodates 40 DWDM LC connectors with additional monitoring (optional) ports. Small form factor athermal AWG bricks are necessary for the LXG-Short cassette enclosure. LGX Cassette with Athermal AWG Brick for Rural Area 5G Wireless Fronthaul/FTTH This LGX product (see Figure 2) consists of (a) 40-CH DWDM AWG equipped with bidirectional Odd/Even channels which stand distinguished each other for 20-CH upstream (Odd) and 20-CH downstream (Even) traffics, (b) 2-Slot LGX-short cassette equipped with 40-CH LC connectors and in addition, (c) N-Skip-0 Band Filter at a remote node to support 5G wireless fronthaul/FTTH deployment in rural areas. This 40-CH DWDM brick is similar to that of the Metro Area 5G Wireless Fronthaul application, but is designed to support purely point-to-point 5G DWDM wireless fronthaul as well as FTTH. Hence, the modules work with a N-skip-0 Band splitter for a remote node usage to affect the cost-effective network deployment in rural areas. "The LGX cassettes with the low-loss Gaussian AWG bricks featured in these two 5G Wireless Fronthaul applications have been fully demonstrated and deployed in the field," says Dr. T.H. Rhee, CEO of POINTek. "We meet customer's unique operational environment optimally. For example, we can provide these new LGX-short Cassettes with Athermal AWG bricks for meeting emerging broadband infrastructure deployments where 5G Wireless fronthaul upgrade is needed or where broadband expansion to rural communities is planned," Rhee adds. LGX Cassette with 4x Athermal AWG Multi/Demultiplex Bricks for High-Density DWDM Channel Management This product group highlights packaging of (a) 2 Athermal AWG Multi/Demultiplxer pairs for a total of 4 Athermal AWG bricks in 1-slot LGX-long cassette and (b) the 1-slot LGX-long cassette equipped with MPO connectors. "We have tailored this product in a single slot LGX fiber patch cassette for high density larger scale fiber networking operations, allowing an efficient fiber management for truly maximum use of popular low insertion loss 100GHz C-band 40-CH Gaussian AWG DWDM channels within limited networking spaces of today's customer environment at data centers, central offices or headend of networking facilities," according to Dr. Donald Yu, CMO of POINTek, operating from Los Angeles, California. "Now, we have added this module to our other pluggable high-density 1RU fiber patch form," Yu adds. POINTek's specialty low-loss Athermal AWG Multiplexers/Demultiplexers packaged in small form factors for LGX Cassettes offer a timely and appropriate solution to on-going 5G Wireless Fronthaul for metro infra and rural FTTH applications as well as high-density fiber management globally. About POINTek, Inc. Launched in 2000 with the goal of developing cutting edge Planar Optical Waveguide Technology, POINTek has become a global leader in the following two decades since its establishment, providing top-quality high performance athermal AWGs. POINTek specializes in packaging and manufacturing athermal AWG based DWDM optical device products.
