Fast innovation and the ability to deliver differentiated 5G services rely on cloud-native solutions driven by AI-powered automation, security and scaling.

The exponential growth of network-connected devices is creating new service opportunities for Communications Service Providers (CSPs). In parallel, 5G brings an order-of-magnitude improvement in bandwidth and latency.

An open horizontal architecture brings unconstrained innovation via an ecosystem of ISVs, allowing CSPs gain a level playing field over OTT competitors. CSPs are also better equipped to provide connectivity-centric services towards experience-based services.

Read this whitepaper to understand key considerations for faster innovation in a 5G world.

  • Cloud-native networking is one of the basic building blocks to build an open, horizontal telco cloud platform.
  • Telco edge solutions deliver low-latency services to enterprises that help you build intelligence from your data faster and drive significant efficiency in data ingestion, storage and speed of inference analysis.

IBM, Red Hat and Juniper Networks have jointly committed to the realization of an open, cloud-native approach and offer a horizontally integrated, multi-vendor telco cloud solution to monetize new 5G services.

IBM, along with a robust ecosystem of partners, provides CSPs with end-to-end system integration capabilities, AI-driven Automation, IBM Cloud, orchestration and service assurance software to build horizontal telco cloud platforms to monetize 5G.

Enhance your data security posture with a no-code approach to application-level encryption

4 min read - Data is the lifeblood of every organization. As your organization’s data footprint expands across the clouds and between your own business lines to drive value, it is essential to secure data at all stages of the cloud adoption and throughout the data lifecycle. While there are different mechanisms available to encrypt data throughout its lifecycle (in transit, at rest and in use), application-level encryption (ALE) provides an additional layer of protection by encrypting data at its source. ALE can enhance…

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…
