Juniper Networks, the industry leader in networking innovation, and Affirmed Networks, the leader in virtualized mobile networks, today announced the formation of a technology partnership focused on the development of solutions that help service providers transition quickly and efficiently to a virtualized mobile architecture. The goal of the partnership's virtualized mobile network reference architecture is to enable wireless service providers to deploy new services faster and at a lower cost than legacy solutions.
In late January, the Federal Communications Commission voted on a Broadband Progress Report, which once again reaches the erroneous conclusion that the United States is not making reasonable and timely progress toward deploying “advanced telecommunications capability” (a.k.a. broadband). The report’s conclusions rest on a highly strained reading of the evidence, and do not conform to the statutorily-directed purpose of the report.

RAD’s award-winning MiNID®, part of its Service Assured Access (SAA) solution portfolio for communications service providers, has become the first miniature network interface device to receive MEF CE 2.0 certification.
With this certification, operators can now instantly upgrade their infrastructure to support premium Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified offerings for business, mobile backhaul and wholesale services without expensive investments in network forklifts.
As the Internet of Things (IoT) matures, and begins to mean more than the oversimplified (and over-hyped) early examples, such as the much maligned connected fridge, it has become clear that mobile networks will be crucial for ensuring connectivity of devices. It’s beyond doubt that mobile data connectivity (3G/4G) will be key to this, until the arrival of 5G at least.
InterDigital, Inc., a mobile technology research and development company, today announced that ETSI’s Industry Specification Group for Mobile Edge Computing (ISG MEC) officially accepted the proposal submitted by the company and four other collaborators titled “FLIPS – Flexible IP-based Services.” The proof-of-concept is the fourth accepted by the ETSI group, joining proofs-of-concept by China Mobile, Intel, Nokia and Telecom Italia.
