Designing Modern 5G and 4G Core Platforms

As the industry moves to the next phases of the 5G rollout, operators face the need to deliver a greater number of new services, with increased speed, lower latency and strict Quality of Service (QoS), over more endpoints than ever before. Many begin by deploying 5G radio services connected to a 4G Evolved Packet Core (EPC), known as non-standalone (NSA). While NSA can enable higher speed of services, the EPC is not capable of enabling 5G core's (5GC) rich feature set, including QoS-enabled network slices.

Designing Open RAN Platforms

As the industry moves into the next phases of the 5G rollout, operators face the need to deliver a greater number of new services, with increased speed, lower latency and strict Quality of Service (QoS), at higher speeds and over more endpoints than ever before. This is the lynchpin for delivering higher quality, more profitable services. Among the many advantages, 5G's inherent virtualization and cloud-native frameworks set the stage for not only hardware-software disaggregation, but also the disaggregation of vendors, promoting best-of-breed Open RAN (O-RAN).

Evolution of Mass Notification into Critical Event Management

According to the 2020-21 MIM Annual report, 73% of respondents felt their companies did not invest enough into Major Incident management. While your organization likely has a stand-alone mass notification tool, it is often no longer enough to handle a critical event in the most effective way. This is where a Critical Event Management platform comes in.

Enterprise Resilience During a Severe Weather Crisis

Since 2019, there has been a 40% increase in weather-related events causing a staggering $80B in insured losses according to Allianz Risk Barometer. As the world emerges from a global pandemic, more and more business leaders are no longer just preparing for 'one big disaster,' but rather preparing their companies to be agile against several severe weather threats.

Application Aware Storage For GKE and OpenShift

As more and more enterprises move to Kubernetes for their cloud-native needs, they are looking for high-performance storage options for their stateful and data-intensive workloads. Beyond a seamless workflow to provision storage, they are also looking for complete data lifecycle management features as a part of their storage platform. Robin Storage is a perfect candidate for this need. With their application awareness, high performance and scale, Robin Storage is well suited to meet enterprise cloud-native storage needs.

High Performance Kubernetes Platform For Stateful Workloads

Enterprises need high-performance storage for their stateful applications. Their needs vary from running Relational and NoSQL Databases to Big Data to AI/ML workloads. They want near bare metal like performance along with scale. In this white paper, we compare Robin Platform with open source GlusterFS and our analysis show that Robin platform provides near bare-metal performance and could scale well to meet the needs of Big Data and AI/ML applications.
