Lanner Ready to Offer LTE Certified, FirstNet-Ready Wireless Gateways

FirstNet Next-gen emergency communications network. hardware platforms for critical communications and services.

The evolution of emergency services is now spearheaded by this year’s deployment of a nation-wide public-safety dedicated network known as FirstNet. This critical network reserves 20Mhz out of the valuable 700 Mhz frequency range due to the obstacle penetrating power this frequency affords. FirstNet was developed to provide mission critical communications and emergency services the …

What is SD-WAN and Why you need it

SD-WAN connectivity, uCPE on premises SD-WAN

Software-defined Wide Area Networks are the next evolution to VPN’s (Virtual Private Networks) now providing highly flexible, automated and resilient data transport for businesses. A useful analogy to understand SD-WAN is where VPN’s are like manual gearboxes in a car; SD-WAN is an automatic radar-guided cruise-control solution. Both can achieve the same result: connectivity between …

Why Multi-Access Edge Computing is the future

Most modern devices, applications and services make extensive use of cloud computing resources (data centers, CDN’s). Nearly all hardware leveraged in cloud computing is composed primarily of: CPU’s, GPU’s, RAM, Network interfaces and non-volatile storage; all of these are the essential building blocks of modern cloud computing. But there’s much more to computing, especially networks, …
