Today, almost every IT department or MSP uses some form of mobile technology. Even though smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other mobile endpoints are incredibly useful for an organization, they can be difficult to manage. TechFunnel’s article on mobile devices in the workplace announces that one laptop is stolen every 53 seconds, while 7 million smartphones are lost every year.
Hybrid and remote work is now the status quo. Companies campaigning for workers to return to the office are facing resistance, with some employers finding that they’re losing employees to jobs that give prospective hires the flexibility they want. Flexible work models have become a competitive advantage in a strained labor market. According to the latest Future of Work report from Accenture, 63% of high-growth companies have adopted a “productivity anywhere” workforce model.
iOS and Android apps are often a common component of distributed applications, forming a key part of the software architecture. These mobile apps provide another way to access data and perform actions on various services, requiring tight integration between the apps and the components which serve the data and control it.
RAN has incrementally evolved with every generation of mobile telecommunications, thus enabling faster data transfers between user devices and core networks. The amount of data has increased more than ever with an increase in the number of interlinked devices. With existing network architectures, challenges lie in handling increasing workloads with the ability to process, analyse and transfer data faster. The 5G ecosystem requires virtual implementations of RAN.
The process of delivering mobile apps utilizing cloud technology is known as mobile cloud computing (MCC). Complex mobile apps today carry out activities including authentication, location-aware features and providing users with customized communication and content. As long as your device is online, mobile cloud computing enables you to store and access data anywhere. This makes it possible for data to be sent without difficulty anytime required.
