Flexibility of IT Infrastructure can mean different things to different people in various roles and companies. For example, developers in need of testing an application could easily go into a flexible IT infrastructure environment, ask for a large set of resources to do the testing and then when it's done, turn it back into the pool of resources because it’s very flexible. For a CIO, on the other hand, the last thing he or she wants to be thinking about is not being able to succeed and meet requirements for a company because they have to go through a long time of trying to acquire new hardware.

In surprise choice, Zoom hitches wagon to Oracle for growing infrastructure needs

techcrunch | April 28, 2020

With the company growing in leaps and bounds, Zoom went shopping for a cloud infrastructure vendor to help it with its growing scale problem. In a surprising choice, the company went with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Zoom has become the go-to video conferencing service as much of the world has shut down due to the pandemic, and life needs to go on somehow. It has gone on via video conferencing with Zoom growing from 200 million active users in February to 300 million in March. That kind of growth puts a wee bit of pressure on your infrastructure, and Zoom clearly needed to beef up its game. What’s surprising is that it chose Oracle, a company whose infrastructure market share registers as a strong niche player in Synergy Research’s latest survey in February. It is well behind market leaders including Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and even IBM (and that’s saying something).

TNS and Cellusys Partner With an Eye to the Future of 5G Roaming and Security

TNS | December 13, 2021

With 5G roaming and interworking on the horizon, US-based Transaction Network Services (TNS) will collaborate with Irish solutions provider, Cellusys, in research, development, and testing of roaming and security solutions for 5G networks. Utilizing the TNS 5G Innovation Lab, the team will combine TNS’ expertise in steering of roaming and other services for regional and national US carriers for 3G, 4G, and soon 5G traffic with security solutions from the Cellusys portfolio, including Signalling (Diameter, GTP, SIP, SS7) and SMS Firewall. “We see 5G as a pivotal component within every roadmap and are confident we will be able to offer first-rate solutions to our customers as 5G roaming and security continue to evolve,” said Bill Versen, President of TNS’ Communications Market business. “Developing new technologies requires creativity and competence, but also a flexible and agile approach, which is why we are excited to embark on this journey with Cellusys.” 5G NSA, based on 4G infrastructure, has become prevalent in much of the country and is gaining traction around the world. Over 500 million 5G handsets are forecast to be sold in 2021, according to Gartner, signalling an appetite for faster download speeds. However, when 5G SA roaming is more prevalent, it may also bring new security threats to mobile operators’ networks. “Our multi-tenant solutions are designed with worldwide leading organizations like TNS in mind, as signalling is increasingly centralized,” said Daniel McTague, Cellusys CTO. “TNS shares our zeal in having the best 5G solutions available to our customers and we are looking forward to working closely with them, as well as continuing our expansion into the Americas.” About Cellusys Cellusys introduced the Signalling Firewall to the telecom industry in 2014 and are consistently recognized as a Tier-1 provider, focusing on the flexibility and agility of signalling-based solutions to offer mobile network groups and operators solutions for 5G, VoLTE, signalling security, anti-fraud, A2P monetisation, roaming, analytics, and IoT. Cellusys systems improve the quality of service and security for over 880 million subscribers worldwide and make communication service providers more secure, intelligent, and profitable.
