    Guest blog by Matt Pooley, Virtualisation Practice Lead at STL Partners. Japanese new-entrant mobile operator Rakuten Mobile has made waves recently for its claims that it has built a cloud-native, multi-vendor 5G network. The hype is justified: this is a world first. But how true are these claims? And why does this matter?

  • Your 2020 essentials – trust and truth

    Our hectic, 24-hour lifestyles have inevitably led to an increase in the number of stories required to keep up with our constantly ‘switched on’ demands, and unfortunately fewer people to produce those stories.

Add ‘fake news’ to the mix, and a multitude of channels to communicate across, and there was always going to be a consequence: a complete lack of trust and the rise of ‘mis and disinformation’.

However, the changes in the new regulations are not just about conformity of the product now, and manufacturers need to be thinking beyond simply completing their transition from MDD to MDR.
