5G and beyond: Hybrid networks are here to stay
July 17, 2019
Virtualization, digital transformation and 5G are taking us on a path towards hybrid networks, in which convergence, integration and coexistence among the different components is more than a way to protect legacy and ensure service continuity. Monolithic and homogeneous networks are no longer capable to address our growing and increasingly diverse connectivity needs. With hybrid networks, evolution to new technologies is not about rip and replace: it is about flexible and dynamic integration and coexistence.
Automate your way out of complexity. And benefit from it
July 13, 2019
As networks evolve to 5G, become virtualized and distributed, and serve a wider range of devices, complexity grows and presents new challenges. How can automation help us manage complexity? Can complexity become and opportunity to increase network efficiency and profitability?
The power of location in networks without borders
May 31, 2019
Digital transformation and virtualization erase the borders across elements and layers and bring end-to-end visibility into wireless networks. Tearing down borders that isolate network components frees operators from the constraints of location, but it does not abstract network performance from location. On the contrary, networks without borders unlock the power of location.
Know your network. Extracting the benefits of virtualization
December 15, 2018
In this blog on the benefits of virtualization, Monica Paolini, Senza Fili, argues that to gather the knowledge they need and leverage it to optimize their networks, service providers need to change the way they run their networks, concurrently along multiple dimensions.

Webinar: Getting edgy
June 21, 2018
Location, location, location. With virtualization operators have the choice to centralize or distribute functions. Far from making location irrelevant, virtualization enable operators to leverage location to optimize network performance and subscriber experience.
Automation: Test automation in virtualized networks
April 13, 2018
Testing is an area where automation is crucial as we move to virtualized, complex and dynamic networks, where more elements and vendors have to interoperate, and operators have to ensure everything works as expected. We talked abuout these topics with James Hopson at Luxoft.
