The role of application developers in driving innovation in software applications is no secret. Developers today leverage a wide range of tools and pre-built frameworks by utilizing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). The cloud-native ecosystem provides a technology framework for developers to rapidly create such applications including, but not limited to, Edge Computing and IoT applications. The application development process has also seen rapid changes as development is now done through rapid iterations and DevOps. The platform for such development has shifted towards lightweight containerization technologies like Linux Containers, Docker containers and cluster-management technologies such as Kubernetes.
NFV (Network Function Virtualization) is a transformative technology whose advent has been highly anticipated for 3 years now. NFVManagement and Orchestration (NFV MANO), in turn, is the heart and brain of the NFV architecture. In this blog, I’ll start with a high level description of the NFV MANO architecture followed by challenges that the industry faces in adopting this architecture.
Machine-to-machine (M2M) technology is changing the way companies and customers communicate and interact with one another. Connected technology is growing, and allowing for more efficient means of communication.
Unfolding the need for Unified Communications Federation
UC Federation is becoming the communication solution of choice not just for high-flying enterprises with shrinking travel budgets, but for Small Medium Businesses as well. Adoption of unified communications federation in enterprises is accelerating. More and more enterprises are embracing the need for software-powered communications beyond their network boundaries, to facilitate communication and collaboration anytime, anywhere among colleagues, vendors and customers around the globe.
At this year's Mobile World Congress we showcased a video that gives a quick overview of the wide range of capabilities that we have at the Aricent Group, including expertise in telecom as well as in industries that are being driven by communications and mobile innovations, such as healthcare, retail, and financial services. It gives a taste of our integrated strategy, design, and engineering capabilities, highlighting a few recent projects. Enjoy!
