Securing cloud connectivity for IoT

We first became aware of cellular IoT connectivity by accident. After blocking illegitimate 3G signalling data traffic to our network in 2015, we got a call from a mobile operator (not a customer) complaining that we had taken down their connected car programme. Additional issues arose and soon it was clear that the hype around […]

Stepping back into the Ethernet

Getting the high-speed connectivity your business needs can be a balancing act between different technologies and topologies. Most companies today have a mixture of on-premises and cloud-based solutions that make up their IT infrastructure, along with multiple locations, and possibly multiple owned-data centres. Working out the best way to meet your connectivity needs across such […]

Building Network Diversity into US Market

2020 was a record-breaking year for us in terms of network growth, with substantial global growth of 30 new Points of Presence (PoPs) around the world.

Internet as the underlay for enterprise networking

In 2020, Covid-19 drove remote working and cloud adoption, overhauling traffic patterns in the WAN. In parallel, SD-WAN enabled network buyers to source their WANs differently. With MPLS connectivity contracts coming due, many CIOs are looking at transitioning from MPLS WANs to hybrid or Internet-based underlays for WAN services. Having the right Internet underlay is […]

The corporate WAN – it’s time to transform

Our newest report has found that corporate WANs are not delivering on their promises in a number of key areas, with security in particular the biggest pain point, alongside service flexibility and supplier performance. 

The Rise of Hybrid Networks

If the public Internet could speak in its own defense, it would likely quote Mark Twain’s London 1897 remark, “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” For the past decade or two, network solution vendors and others peddling various enterprise services have all declared the public Internet is broken, or worse, dead. Those […]

The Internet Backbone Spoils Us

It’s hard to imagine life without the internet, but in all reality, it wasn’t born until 1991, and that version is unrecognizable compared to what the internet has evolved to as we know it today. Connectivity drives interactions and innovation impacting nearly every aspect of the world. We wake up and open Facebook or fire […]

In early March, Telia Carrier expanded our global enterprise portfolio by completing the roll-out of the world’s best connected SD-WAN service. Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) has been all the rage for a number of years. We’ve all heard about the benefits: Optimizing transport cost with Internet connectivity instead of MPLS. Application visibility. Simplified network […]
