Focus: Mobility, virtualisation and desktop

CIOs are now accustomed to letting employees access company information on their mobile phones and tablets, and using these devices to carry out business-critical tasks on the go. But that wasn’t always the case.

Not that long ago, many IT leaders scoffed at the idea of letting their staff store and access commercially-sensitive information in this way because of credible concerns about what would happen to their data should the device be lost, stolen or hacked.

Since then, mobile security technologies have come on leaps and bounds, but enterprises have also turned to virtualisation to protect their data, and ensure their infrastructure can cope with the growing number of end-points connected to it.

In this e-guide, we share details of how mobility and virtualisation has helped organisations in the publishing and manufacturing industries meet their business objectives, while taking a look at some of the broader industry trends playing out in these technological areas.

  • Current trends in mobile networking

    There’s no doubting that the word on everybody’s lips in the mobile industry this year is 5G, the next generation of mobile networks, promising vast improvements in browsing speed and network capacity, and enabling future use cases.

    But two years before anticipated commercial roll-outs, little is really known about 5G, and what its impact will really be. In this e-guide to mobile networking we help shed some light on the technology, exploring current approaches to 5G, checking out the landscape and finding out how government, regulators and the industry itself are helping lay the groundwork for the future of mobile networking, as well as learning how the conversation moved on at Mobile World Congress 2018 at the end of February.

    Of course, 5G is still just one part of the picture. There’s plenty of mileage left in 4G mobile networks, and we will also examine how the current mobile networking standard is still being enhanced and refined.

    Finally, with Brexit less than 12 months away, we will explore the possibility that British travellers to the EU will once again have to pay sky-high mobile roaming charges after March 2019. Business travellers and tourists alike heaved a sigh of relief last year when EU legislation eliminated these charges – could they be about to make a comeback?
