    A question of efficiency: C-RAN and SDN

    Published By: Community.Freescale.com
    ​As an acronym, C-RAN has less name recognition than its more popular cousins, SDN and NFV, though if you are in the wireless business it is equally important as we look at the future of the wireless network and its continued evolution over the next five to ten years. However, C-RAN has not been widely implemented to date due to challenges resulting from the lack of efficiency in using general hardware to do specialized hardware’s job. Read More...

    Fog to the Cloud: An atmosphere for the IOT

    Published By: Community.Freescale.com
    Five years ago, the network edge was well-defined and fairly narrow, and the types of devices connected to it consisted primarily of personal computers, either laptop PCs or desktops, as well as terminal platforms.

    No-wait data centers

    Published By: ecnmag.com
    ​Big websites usually maintain their own "data centers," banks of tens or even hundreds of thousands of servers, all passing data back and forth to field users' requests. Like any big, decentralized network, data centers are prone to congestion: Packets of data arriving at the same router at the same time are put in a queue, and if the queues get too long, packets can be delayed.
