Must Read Whitepaper, ‘Making Money With Network Slicing’, Hits The Shelves

Network Slicing Leader Cloudstreet Showcases the Vast Opportunities of this Promising New Mobile Business Model

CaribPR Wire, Espoo, Finland & Berlin, Germany, Oct. 23, 2018: Cloudstreet, ‘The Network Slicing Company’, is pleased to announce the publication of its most recent industry whitepaper, “Making Money with Network Slicing”. A business-forward take on the practice, the paper puts slicing at the very center of the mobile industry’s transition now underway. With a focus on practical, market-ready models, the authors unravel the misconceptions about Network Slicing, exploring its potential to disrupt the cultural and business logjams that have hampered growth.

Less about technology than a new way of doing business, Network Slicing has quickly risen from a mere buzzword to a budget line item, as mobile operators retool for the opportunities to come

“Inherently disruptive, it will create new business ecosystems to support unique and evolving demands that touch quite literally every industry sector and market segment. Like any evolution, it will start small and then scale exponentially as demand grows and the practice becomes more refined. The financial returns will quickly follow and soon become a core top line revenue generator.”

Showcasing several high-value, low-barrier examples including Fixed Wireless, Private LTE, Mobile Gaming and Live User Generated Content, to name a few, the study charts a carrier-friendly course for Network Slicing in today’s 4G networks, and a cogent strategy for staying competitive in what promises to be a highly competitive market in 5G.

“No doubt but that carriers need to lead the way and begin the process of transforming their businesses today” said Mika Skarp, Founder and CEO of Cloudstreet “The next generation of telecom isn’t just about improvements in speed and latency. These are not selling points in and of themselves, but reliability is,” he adds. “There are huge expectations of mobile networks that go well beyond what new antennas and spectrum alone can address. The moment that carriers move on from Best Effort to differentiated Quality-of-Experience and SLA-based business models, the next-generation of mobile will truly begin”

On the occasion of the paper’s publication, Mika Skarp wil be delivering a companion presentation at the Broadband World Forum, Network Slicing Summit, in Berlin Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018.

Analyst firm Arthur D. Little suggests that in meeting these demands, carriers can expect a 34% boost in revenues to 2026. That’s a big jump from today’s annual growth average of about 1%. But as the whitepaper points out, addressing the unique needs of multiple segments, particularly in industry 4.0, means being mission-critical ready, leveraging the power of Network Slicing to deliver virtualized dedicated resources to customers of all stripes. And it’s that special recipe, argue the authors, that will have a positive knock-on disruptive effect.

“Traditional go-to-market cycles will accelerate, mobile operator relationships with enterprise, government and small business will become more strategic, networks will become more efficient, resource allocation more logical and both current and future investments in capacity will show dramatically greater return.”

Drawing on years of experience as the first to deploy a market-ready Network Slicing capability at scale, as well as some of the most advanced PoCs, including a demonstration of End-to-End Network Slicing at the recent Telecom Infra Project’s TIP Summit 18 in London, Cloudstreet provides key insights from across functional groups, to paint a clear picture of this promising, soon-to-be defining feature of mobile networks.

Readers interested in the whitepaper can visit the Cloudstreet web site for their online or printable version.

LACNIC 27: Experts Highlight Growth of Internet IPv6 Protocol in Latin America and the Caribbean

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The IPv6 protocol, key to the development and growth of the Internet, has reached considerable levels of deployment and traffic in the region over the past year, as IT leaders concluded at the LACNIC 27 event, which brought together more than 735 participants.

The IPv6 protocol is the key not only to driving development of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the region, but also constitutes a vital tool for connecting with 40% of the Latin Americans who still have no Internet, emphasized LACNIC President, Warder Maia.

LACNIC 27, the most important meeting of Internet professionals  from Latin America and the Caribbean, was held in Foz de Iguaçú, Brazil, with the support of NIC.br and CGI.br.

Maia emphasized that in 2017, LACNIC is celebrating 15 years of institutional life, and placed special emphasis on the construction of the Regional Internet Register community, which has made possible development of a Web suited to the needs of Latin American and Caribbean users.

This year, Latin America and the Caribbean achieved Internet penetration of 59.6%.  As per this last figure, the region’s Internet community now stands at 385 million users, incorporating 40 million new ones in the past year. “It’s a reason for pride, and at the same time a double challenge, because we have to connect those who are not connected, while keeping on the Web those who are already there,” said Maia.

During the event, emerging technological trends were addressed, and their impact on the future development of the Internet in the coming decade in the panel, “The Internet of the future: its evolution in the next 10 years.” Moderated by Oscar Robles (CEO of LACNIC), the panel featured the participation of Adiel Akplogan (ICANN), Christine Hoepers (CGI.br), Flavio Amaral (Netflix) and Matías Quintanilla (Telefónica Argentina).

Furthermore, for the first time at a LACNIC gathering, ICANN CEO Göran Marby made an appearance, and presented “ICANN – after the transition from IANA supervisory functions.” He recognized the digital community’s work and stressed the growth of IPv6 in relation to Latin America and the Caribbean.

Out of the event’s five days, one of them was dedicated to IPv6 Day, with a panel of success stories where good practices and examples from the region were presented (Telefónica Brasil, COPEL, ANTEL de Uruguay and Telecentro Argentina).

Another highlight of LACNIC 27 was a presentation by the region’s first anti-abuse group, an initiative to strengthen the fight against online threats.

Meanwhile, LACNIC’s inclination towards greater  participation by women in IT in Latin America and the Caribbean was reflected in the heavy attendance at the panel on diversity and inclusion. Organized by the discussion list ‘IT Woman,’ the initiative sought to strengthen regional women’s role in the Internet community.

Brazil Is the Site of the Most Important Internet Event in Latin America and the Caribbean

FOZ DO IGUAÇU, Brazil, May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The promotion of integrated efforts at developing the Internet in Latin America and the Caribbean was prominently underscored during the first day of sessions of the meeting LACNIC 27, being held May 22-26 in Foz do Iguaçu.

The opening session featured Ariel Graizer (LAC-IX), Eduardo Santoyo (LACTLD), Demi Getschko (NIC.br), Hartmut Glaser (CGI.br), and Wardner Maia (LACNIC). “Given the overwhelming interest, registration had to be closed two weeks before the start,” said Maia. More than 650 people were in attendance, not including the 420 attending from a distance. The session also included a welcome by LACNIC’s president to the first woman to serve as co-moderator of the LACNIC Public Policy Forum, Paola Pérez.

Demi Getschko stressed the importance of being able to contribute as a co-organizer of the debates generated at LACNIC events. “Several challenges in the Internet space have caused concern, including attacks, regulations and neutrality. It is, therefore, important for us to remain vigilant of aspects such as these that can affect the Internet as a whole,” he explained. Harmut Glaser reminded everyone that “this week, the Internet’s headquarters in Latin America and the Caribbean is Foz do Iguaçu.” Certain topics of special interest to the region, such as IPv6 growth and local traffic exchange, were also highlighted.

The panel on the “Internet of the Future: Its Evolution over the Next 10 Years” was moderated by Oscar Robles, Executive Director of LACNIC, and included members Adiel Akplogan (ICANN), Cristine Hoepers (CERT.br), Flavio Amaral (Netflix) and Matías Quintanilla (Telefónica Argentina). Cristine addressed concerns such as security, stating that these should not focus solely on an attack response, but also implementation of good practices that do not increase the contribution of devices and networks with attacks. Adiel underscored the need to consider privacy at every level of the network. Flavio talked about the increasing interest of companies in providing users with more and more personalized content. Matías wrapped up the session discussing the important role that the 5G will play in the medium-term evolution of the Internet.

The opening session also included ICANN CEO Göran Marby. “The Internet gets larger when we connect and smaller when we disconnect. It is because of this that we need for more people from different places to say what needs to be improved and how. The collaboration that exists in Latin America and the Caribbean is a model for the rest of the world.”

The 27th meeting of the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC) will hold activities through May 26 and is co-organized with the support of the Internet Management Committee in Brazil (CGI.br) and Information and Coordination Nucleus of Dot BR (NIC.br).
