Vodafone Idea, the largest telecom service provider in India, is working with Cisco Systems to build an automated multicloud network for its retail and enterprise customers.
Vodafone Idea and Cisco are deploying a distributed multicloud architecture based on Cisco's network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVi.) The integrated cloud, which Vodafone Idea said is the largest in the country, is being used for its IT and network applications that are hosted in one cloud.
The automated solution has enabled a nationwide deployment in record time, according to Vodafone. While the cloud offers many benefits to Vodafone Idea's end customers, it also fast-tracked Vodafone Idea's data core network rollout, increased its capacities, and helped reduce capex, with cloud implementations being done in just 72 hours.
Vodafone Idea said its automated cloud scale architecture is synchronized across applications, operating systems, infrastructure, and an underlying IP-MPLS core. It taps into a range of Cisco solutions including Cisco virtualized infrastructure manager (VIM) for NFVi management, Cisco Ultra Packet Core and policy, third party VNFs (virtual network functions), Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI), leaf-spine architecture, and cloud security.
Vodafone Idea is also working with Cisco's Customer Experience teams on the deployments.
The O-RAN Alliance cemented its collaboration with the Linux Foundation, by creating the O-RAN Software Community (O-RAN SC). As a new open source community hosted by the Linux Foundation, the O-RAN SC is sponsored by the O-RAN Alliance. Together, the two groups aim to develop an open and "smart" radio access network.
The initial set of software projects may include: near-real-time RAN intelligent controller, non-real-time RAN intelligent controller, cloudification and virtualization platforms, open central unit, open distributed unit, and a test and integration effort to provide a working reference implementation.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) built encryption into nearly all of its 165 cloud services. Modern apps require serverless architectures with a lot of automation and continuous security, said Amazon CTO Werner Vogels.
Microsoft launched a bunch of new services and capabilities to secure Azure-connected IoT devices and workloads. The new IoT security tool is called Azure Security Center for IoT, and it essentially connects Azure cloud security, visibility, and analysis tools with the company's Azure IoT Hub.
Azure Security Center for IoT uses Microsoft's threat intelligence, Azure Security Center, which Microsoft says collects data from more than 6 trillion signals daily. It also hooks into Microsoft's new cloud-native security information and event management (SIEM) tool, Azure Sentinel. And it adds new capabilities to Sentinel that allow customers to combine their IoT security data with security data from across the enterprise, and then use analysis or machine learning to identify and mitigate threats.
The U.K. report reinforced previous concerns with respect to Huawei's approach to software development. Vulnerabilities that remain in place include "protected stack overflows in publicly accessible protocols, protocol robustness errors leading to denial of service, logic errors, cryptographic weaknesses, default credentials, and many other basic vulnerability types."
NCSC, which has been reviewing Huawei's equipment and processes to mitigate any perceived risks to critical infrastructure in the U.K. for almost nine years, concluded that the company has made no progress of late and "is not confident that Huawei is able to remediate the significant problems it faces." Moreover, the report concludes that "Huawei's software engineering and cybersecurity competence and associated processes are failing to improve sufficiently."

The Kubernetes community found a "high" severity security flaw in a component of the platform that could delete files on a user's workstation. The latest security blip comes on the heels of the latest Kubernetes release and the platform's first major security flaw that was announced late last year.
The latest flaw, dubbed CVE-2019-1002101, impacts the Kubernetes kubectl cp command. If compromised, the flaw could allow an attacker to write files to any path on the user's machine.
Kubectl, which is pronounced "cube-cuddle," is a command line interface (CLI) for running commands against Kubernetes clusters. It basically allows for the copying of files between containers and the user's machine.
The latest security issue was initially found earlier this month by Ariel Zelivansky, a security researcher at Twistlock. He explained that the new flaw was linked to a patch that was sent out last year.

Agile Networks is preparing to launch a new pilot deployment of Radwin's 60 GHz technology in Canton, Ohio, where it will address a connectivity shortfall in the city.
Plus, they have a lot of confidence in Radwin, whose gear is based on Terragraph technology, the initiative spearheaded by Facebook. The Terragraph by Radwin 60 GHz mesh solution was developed in collaboration with Facebook, Radwin and Intel.
The 3.7-4.2 GHz band, also referred to as the C-band, is seen as one of the best chances for the U.S. terrestrial wireless industry to get midband spectrum for 5G. However, while the wireless industry deems 100 MHz per carrier as the ideal for 5G, the current satellite companies occupying the C-band say they realistically are only able to relinquish 200 megahertz out of the total 500 megahertz for the sake of 5G.
In a note to investors, New Street Analysts said that while the CBA plan at the beginning of the year appeared to be the only horse in the race, they've heard rumblings of discontent over the last several months about the C-band plan, mostly from other stakeholders but also from some in Congress.
