G7 countries outgun UK in worldwide broadband speed test
Tuesday, 14 September 2021 23:01

The UK is second worst in the G7 league of industrial nations – only pipping Italy (61st) in terms of broadband speed, according to a report published today by Cable.co.uk.

Canada (24th), France (19th), Germany (36th), Japan (13th) and the US (14th) all out-performed the UK (43rd), according to the numbers.

Countries ranking highest are those with a strong focus on pure fibre (FTTP) networks, with those countries dawdling too much on FTTC and ADSL solutions slipping further down year on year...

And despite the UK's ongoing commitment to rolling out fibre, Rocio Concha, director of Policy and Advocacy at

Ignore politics of whitebox radio: Mix and match OpenRAN tech will be 10% of market in 2025, claims analyst
Tuesday, 14 September 2021 20:15

Analysts are upping sales projections for Open RAN tech despite the recent kerfuffle that saw Nokia step out of an industry alliance intended to heighten competition in telco networking.

The Alliance itself said yesterday that it remains "fully committed to its mission of delivering open, intelligent, virtualized and fully interoperable RAN."

The whitebox radio tech is increasingly being promoted as an answer by politicians insisting that partial and effective bans on Huawei – for many years the biggest head-to-toes mobile radio comms kit vendor – will create market competition issues.

Huawei's removal in multiple countries, including the UK , has

Operating your network isn’t enough. You need to develop (for) it
Monday, 06 September 2021 19:15

Sponsored No-one said enterprise networking is easy, so it’s understandable that the traditional approach to managing switches has followed the maxim, “keep it simple, stupid”.

For years, NetOps teams have relied on vendors’ own apps to manage their highly complex, and highly expensive, switches, or go on-device using a command line interface (CLI). Of course, they can turn to approved tools or third-party apps in conjunction with standard protocols, such as SNMP - if the supplier chooses to let them.
