|Partnership Enables Automated Network Slicing for Increased Flexibility and Control Across 5G Networks|
Itential® has partnered its automation platform with Kaloom's edge networking software to deliver innovative networking and automation capabilities for communication service providers and enterprises shifting to 5G networks. Together, both platforms will now offer customers the ability to integrate, automate, and deploy network slicing intelligence. Customers will become better equipped to unlock the monetization of 5G through automation, network slicing, and virtualized network fabrics connected to the cloud.
"For operators to extract returns on their massive 5G investments, they need the means to offer and charge for differentiated services," said Roy Chua, Principal at AvidThink, a research and analyst firm. "However, many operators worldwide are struggling to put together the underlying end-to-end infrastructure that can power these offerings. Kaloom and Itential's partnership couples an agile network automation solution with a flexible network fabric, enabling network operators to bring such services to market much faster."

|Smart Switch Achieves Network Interoperability and Integration Faster than Ever|
Moxa has added the SDS-3016 Series of industrial smart Ethernet switches to its product family. The new SDS-3016 sports: Gigabit uplink, eight additional ports, and an easy-to-configure Industrial Automation (IA)-profile that allows automation engineers to quickly process the increasing amounts of data generated within smart manufacturing industrial environments, and to help them achieve network interoperability and integration faster than ever before.
The new smart switch was specifically designed for IA engineers and automation machine builders. It only includes the functions IA engineers and automation machine builders need, and importantly, does not require them to have IT-based network management skills. The SDS-3000 Series is the ideal product for today's manufacturing industry, especially for machine builders who are embracing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0.
|Built-for-5G Fast Data Platform May be Key for Future Network as a Service (NaaS)|
Network virtualization is heralding a new age of real-time, event- and data-driven intelligence that requires handling complex decisions leading to automated operational optimization at the speed, scale, and precision that 5G demands. Network as a Service (NaaS) has emerged to address some of these core challenges.
For enterprises, NaaS is an opportunity to free up in-house resources to focus on running and scaling business operations without having to worry about the underlying networking functionality. It also immensely improves the employee experience and makes their teams more productive and collaborative.
5G and Industrial IoT, with their proliferating smart device connections, distributed workloads, and ultra-low latency demands, will play a vital part in accelerating NaaS deployments. 5G's predictable single-digit millisecond-latency, capacity to support 1 million devices per square kilometer, and network slicing capability make it an ideal platform to deliver NaaS.
The team at VoltDB -- a built-for-5G fast data platform -- offers unique insight into the future of NaaS.
