The Critical Role of Surge Protection and Power Distribution in Protecting 5G mmWave Small Cell Networks

Thumb original small cell surge protection position paper

5G small cell sites typically consist of existing poles with attached concealed radio equipment and antennas, or more integrated poles packed with expensive electronic hardware. These densely packed nodes are increasingly susceptible to damage from overvoltage surges and transients, especially conducted disturbances through cables and radiated disturbances, from nearby events like lightning discharges.

Since 5G networks will operate over large numbers of small cell sites, carriers, tower companies and A&E firms must make sure each site integrates high performance and flexible AC power distribution and protection devices to ensure continuous operation.

Understanding the Obstacles to WAN Transformation — Security, Performance, and TCO

Network engineering and operations leaders are looking to software-defined wide- area networks (SD-WAN) to support the influx of traffic and applications driven by digital transformation (DX). These applications improve staff productivity while creating new business opportunities, but they also reshape corporate networking and security needs.

In response, many organizations are beginning to rethink their traditional WAN architecture. SD WAN has emerged as a replacement, but many SD-WAN implementations also present serious challenges—from ina ...

SD-WAN in the Age of Digital Innovation — Achieving Business Agility While Reducing Disruption

Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital innovation (DI) - leveraging technology to achieve specific goals—and ultimately deliver greater value to their customers. But DI also brings disruption. Disruption in the form of an expanded attack surface and the introduction of a more sophisticated threat landscape. Disruption can also lead to increased complexity as organizations try to counter these new threats with a range of new security solutions. Finally, maintaining compliance with relevant industy and regulatory standards su ...

SD-WAN Isn’t Just for Retail

In any organization, being responsible for cybersecurity is a complex job entailing interactions with the teams managing software development, servers, databases, storage, and networking. It becomes even more challenging where there is also a need to protect industrial installations and the Operational Technology (OT) that runs them in critical industries such as manufacturing, energy, and extraction.

Although it is not always on the OT security team’s radar, in the IT networking world Software Defined Wide Area Network, or SD-WAN, is the ho ...

Securing Dynamic Cloud Environments — Developing Your Solution Checklist in a Changing Paradigm

Cloud computing has transformed how we consume and deploy IT solutions. Compute power is rapidly evolving to a utility model, with shared infrastructure at its core. This shared infrastructure underpinning the cloud revolution has also driven a fundamental shift in how we design and deploy technology within the data center. Servers, storage, networks, even the data center itself has moved beyond physical limits to become virtualized services residing on physical hardware. With this new virtual shared infrastructure model, comes new risks.
