Our new e-book contains everything you wanted to know about network benchmarking.
Probably a few extra things, too.
Hello and welcome to the third entry in our series about wargaming WAN configuration scenarios. We’ve made it to the MPLS-broadband edition!
Before we continue: if you haven’t read the previous entries where I introduce our hypothetical WAN and then add local internet breakouts with DIA, it probably makes sense to do that before you dive into this one. (This scenario mirrors our last, but replaces DIA with ISP-sourced business broadband.)
Mexico’s open-access mobile network provider Red Compartida is approaching the 50% coverage milestone. I can think of no better time to take a closer look at Red Compartida’s business model and track its progress to date.
When we look through some of the most interesting telecom stories from the last month, a theme emerges.
There's a lot of submarine cable and data center news coming out of Africa.
We've selected stories about Facebook's plan to bring cheap internet to Africa, as well as a profile on Equiano, Google's new private subsea cable connecting Portugal and South Africa.
Welcome to the second entry in this series on “wargaming” WAN scenarios to make sure you’re getting the most bandwidth bang for your buck.
If you didn’t read the set-up to the series, please go back and check that out. This will all make a lot more sense if you do.
The first actual scenario we’re going to tackle is adopting local internet breakouts in an MPLS-DIA hybrid WAN. Let’s dive in.
SD-WAN technology is evolving rapidly. With new technological developments, service offerings, and marketing promises, how does the industry start to sing from the same songbook? And how do consumers wade through ever-changing tech speak?
MEF—the industry association comprised of companies that share an interest in connectivity services—has these questions on their mind.
This book tells the story of near-future humanity struggling to survive after the moon explodes and threatens to end all life on Earth. The scientific and military elite game out their way forward, running models to identify scenarios with the highest probability of survival.
This brings me to wide area networking.
The Philippines has moved one step closer to breaking the cellular market duopoly of well-established operators PLDT/Smart and Globe Telecom.
Mindanao Islamic Telephone Company (Mislatel)–the new major player (NMP) that was licensed in November 2018–has formally been issued its Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN). This paves the way for a planned commercial launch next year.
