Mass market broadband with fixed wireless access solutions

Wireless Access has been used successfully for many years to deliver Internet services to mainly rural areas. Thanks to recent developments in LTE, CBRS and 5G wireless, broadband access is now a viable alternative to wired broadband connections. Sub-6 GHz 5G NR wireless connectivity can provide a quality 50-200 Mbps service, while 5G NR mmWave […]

Podcast | Edge: From ambition to implementation

Edge computing’s benefits to data security, latency and bandwidth are making possible a host of new use cases across a swathe of industries. WWT’s new research, conducted with Analysys Mason, reveals the scale of the Edge opportunity by highlighting 30 use cases expected to deliver significant revenues and that really is just the tip of the iceberg.

Making these use cases a reality is the topic of the final podcast in our series on Edge computing for telecoms service providers, created by WWT in partnership with Telecoms.com.

In this episode, Telecoms.com editor Scott Bicheno is joined by WWT’s EMEA Chief Technologist for Service Providers Daniel Valle and Intel’s Senior Solution Architect Larry Horner. Their conversation gets into the nitty-gritty, exploring what enterprises are already doing with Edge, taking in examples such as high-resolution cameras in industrial QA and data security in remote healthcare. They discuss what makes Edge so well suited to these applications, and why telcos are essential to their success.

As Larry says, no-one’s data gets to the cloud without going through service providers. But the opportunity is much greater than that. This discussion highlights why telcos should look to move from offering connectivity to providing use cases and outcomes, and how the right partnerships can help them turn the complex ecosystem of Edge hardware, software and connectivity into enterprise-ready platforms and solutions.

Podcast: Edge Modernising to Monetise

Edge isn’t just a new technology; it’s a complex ecosystem of hardware, software and connectivity, and the radical new outcomes that can be achieved with them. Telcos are well placed to capitalise on the connectivity needs of enterprises exploring Edge computing, but that’s just one piece of the puzzle and just one aspect of the $17bn opportunity at stake.

Monetising Edge is the topic of the second of three podcasts on Edge computing for telecoms service providers, created by WWT in partnership with Telecoms.com.

In this episode, Telecoms.com editor Scott Bicheno is joined by WWT’s EMEA Chief Technologist for Service Providers Daniel Valle and GSMA’s Head of Future Networks Henry Calvert. Their conversation centres on telcos main challenge to cultivating success in enterprise Edge: the new expertise and models needed in order to adapt from providing the plumbing for voice, messaging and data to offering value-added services such as apps and experiences.

There’s no one way to monetise Edge, but as they discuss, there is a consistent theme: partnerships. With the increasing cloudification of the network, forging partnerships will enable telcos to manage the risk inherent in adopting IT production models, upskill on emerging trends like OpenRAN, and bridge gaps in their knowledge to offer the easy-to-consume Edge platforms that enterprises are crying out for.

The first podcast in the series, Opportunity at the Edge, can be found here, and the final installment will be available on 2/7.

5G & the enterprise opportunity

The 5G shakeup has already started in many markets. Service providers are actively considering how they can evolve from being primarily consumer – oriented providers of voice, text and data to become much more business – and enterprise-focussed, enabling a more diverse range of B2B2x services. This paper discusses network slicing, partner ecosystems, enterprise marketplaces […]

Virtualizing the Cable Headend

As service providers continue to evolve their networks to support the ever-growing demand for content, and as video delivery shifts from broadcast technologies (QAM) to IP, solutions are needed for flexible and adaptable network deployments. Distributed access architecture (DAA) is the next step in a 20+ year evolution. In this white paper you will learn […]

Podcast: Opportunity at the Edge

Edge computing is a hot topic: a buzzy area at the confluence of numerous other buzzy areas in technology, including cloud, 5G and IoT. And crucially, it’s one that enterprise decision makers are taking very seriously indeed.

That’s why WWT partnered with Telecoms.com to record a three-part podcast series exploring enterprise Edge computing for telecoms service providers.

In the first of these podcasts, Telecoms.com editor Scott Bicheno is joined by WWT’s EMEA Chief Technologist for Service Providers Daniel Valle and Dell Technologies EMEA GTM Manager Telco/5G Eric van Vliet. They discuss enterprise attitudes to Edge and the $17bn revenue opportunity it represents, based on findings from new research conducted with Analysys Mason. They also delve into why telcos infrastructure and experience make them so well positioned to capitalise on the Edge ecosystem.

After touching on other hot topics such as OpenRAN, they conclude that the Edge opportunity is great, but so is the complexity of the space. That complexity, and the fact that telcos are not currently front-of mind for enterprise Edge deployments, make forging the right partnerships essential for any telco eager to grab a slice of the Edge pie.

Don’t miss the following two podcasts in the series, which will be available on 18/6 and 2/7.

5G Poster: Cell Site Installation Tips

5G is not just faster than 4G, it is way more complex. And this means installation and turn-up is also much more involved. All the different pieces have to work together instantaneously. Things like beam forming with new antennas with massive MIMO, new frequency ranges, millimetre-wave and of course it also depends on how the […]

IoT and Network Sunsets: A 4G/5G Planning Framework

Internet of Things (IoT) projects are often part of enterprise digital transformation initiative.
