Check System Health on the Go with Splunk Observability Cloud For Mobile

With the demand to meet service level agreements (SLAs), any on-call SRE can tell you that incidents always happen at the wrong time. Things break when you least expect them to (on a date, about to beat a new level in a video game, pizza delivery just arrived, asleep at 3am). During these inopportune moments, you want to make sure it's easy to get the data you need, no matter which device is nearby.


Is Kubernetes the answer to the challenges in Multi-access Edge Computing - or is there more to this equation?

The market for Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) is pegged at $4.25 billion in 2025. The reasons are many – from the recent surge in AR/VR gaming, to a growing preference for video calling and Ultra-High-Definition, and of course, the Internet of Things (IoT) that spawn SmartX applications, including cities, manufacturing, agriculture, and logistics. The majority of MEC opportunity is both driving and driven by 5G, and the two will grow hand-in-hand in the days to come.


Announcing the General Availability of Splunk Mobile RUM for Native Mobile Apps

As the world increasingly works, buys, and communicates through native mobile apps. In 2020 there were 218 billion new app installs globally, 13.4 billion from the US alone. The challenge, while iOS and Android applications make up significant portions of user traffic and business, engineering teams and monitoring tools are split between mobile app and backend developers; this creates siloed visibility on how changes to the app or backend components impact each other, and end user experience.

Building out the Open RAN ecosystem for end-to-end cloud structure deployments at scale

Connectivity is often a key priority for operators today. But in the race towards better connectivity, they tend to forget that there’s a tremendous amount of money in the services that run over top (OTT). In a world that’s rapidly moving towards #5G, service impact should be as big a priority as connectivity. #5G E2E is up and running already, and early adopters of open solutions and #cloudnative are winning in the market. Operators need to learn how to develop specifically for OTT services so they can monetize them faster. Waiting won’t help!

Demystifying the complexity of cloud-native 5G network functions deployment using Robin CNP

Some of the key requirements as operators deploy #telecom data centers include managing their NFs in a cloud-native world to achieve low-latency and high throughput for #5G applications, meeting scalability targets, achieving bare-metal performance without virtualization overheads, and so on. Robin’s #CloudNative Platform solves various challenges associated with #5G CNF deployments, along with delivering the convenience of zero touch automation, multi-cloud portability, and hyperscale orchestration.

Designing Open RAN Platforms

As the industry moves into the next phases of the 5G rollout, operators face the need to deliver a greater number of new services, with increased speed, lower latency and strict Quality of Service (QoS), at higher speeds and over more endpoints than ever before. This is the lynchpin for delivering higher quality, more profitable services. Among the many advantages, 5G's inherent virtualization and cloud-native frameworks set the stage for not only hardware-software disaggregation, but also the disaggregation of vendors, promoting best-of-breed Open RAN (O-RAN).

Designing Modern 5G and 4G Core Platforms

As the industry moves to the next phases of the 5G rollout, operators face the need to deliver a greater number of new services, with increased speed, lower latency and strict Quality of Service (QoS), over more endpoints than ever before. Many begin by deploying 5G radio services connected to a 4G Evolved Packet Core (EPC), known as non-standalone (NSA). While NSA can enable higher speed of services, the EPC is not capable of enabling 5G core's (5GC) rich feature set, including QoS-enabled network slices.
