SDN-Enabled All-Optical Circuit Switching

February 10, 2017

Current data center network architectures cannot scale to meet the demands created by the proliferation of bandwidth-hungry mobile data applications and the associated rapid increase of internal (East-West) traffic volumes. The trend toward multi-tenant and disaggregated virtual data centers creates further challenges in provisioning Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Operators need more capacity in the same footprint together with the flexibility to allocate resources dynamically when, and to where, they are needed most. While optical interconnects are widely deployed to provide high speed transmission between processing elements in the data center, switching is still performed electronically, with fiber layer connectivity remaining mainly static.

Virtualization is the Present and Future of Mobile Networks

whitePaper | September 5, 2022

The future of mobile networks will be software-centric, and Samsung is leading the way to transforming how wireless networks are designed and implemented using virtualization. The hardware-centric approach for network development, using vendor-specific hardware designs, has remained static for decades. That model is unable to keep up with the fast-changing world of today’s telecommunication services. Samsung’s virtualized Radio Access Network (vRAN) solutions reduces costs, not only for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), but also for enterprises and government agencies looking to adopt 5G technology for private networks. It increases network flexibility, enables simpler capacity management, reduces Time to Market (TTM) for new services, and improves operator efficiencies.

Infrastructure Protection Best Practices

whitePaper | December 14, 2022

In the post-pandemic world, we spread data everywhere. As remote and hybrid workforce models become the norm, multi-cloud deployments evolve into the de facto computing standard for distributed workloads. This expands the attack surface well beyond the walls of a traditional data center and overextends already understaffed security teams. As a result, organizations struggle to combat the growing number of insider and outsider threats targeting their invaluable digital assets.
