Data containerization, digital rights management (DRM) policies, BYOD adoption in mobile workforce

The adoption of BYOD increases the need to separate enterprise files from other personal data. For this, the IT teams of enterprises use data containerization, which is an application that isolates sensitive enterprise data in an employee’s personal device and protects it from malware attacks, intruders, and other device applications
However, the chances of leakage of containerized data and loss of data control still prevail. In such cases, digital rights management (DRM) policies are adopted to enhance data security.

The growth in the mobile workforce explained

It is now obvious that, Employees are becoming more dependent on mobile devices because of the increasing need for a seamless connection between enterprise networks and employees. This growth in the mobile workforce is also because of the high popularity and acceptance of the BYOD policy among enterprises.  In effect, the emergence of new mobile technologies such as near-field communication, wearables, and biometric readers also add fuel to the growth. This is transforming the work culture in developing regions across the world; compelling the organizations to increase their mobile workforce to stay competitive. 
In 2015, the global mobile workforce was approximately 1.3 billion, and it will reach approximately USD 1.64 billion by 2020, according to Technavio.

Here is why Enterprises are adopting virtualization

I have a pleasure to recall that, Enterprises are adopting virtualization to enhance productivity and reduce costs related to hardware upgrades and software license renewals. 
In effect, in virtualization, a server is integrated with the computing resources and provides end-users with on-demand access to these resources. 
The virtualization of IT infrastructure allows employees to share files even from remote locations which enhances employee productivity and collaboration among team members in an enterprise.

LTE small cells are the fastest growing small cell type

Dataset captured this year shows that, LTE small cells are the fastest growing small cell type in the market driven by venue and dense urban deployments. ABI Research forecasts the number of LTE small cells shipped to double in 2016 and by a similar factor each year after as MNOs put in place the framework for 5G deployments. 
In 2021, the value of LTE small cells equipment will represent almost 70% of the small cell equipment market. The Asia-Pacific region; given its large size with 4G deployments in South Korea and Japan, as well as the large LTE and growing networks in China and India, will represent almost 50% of the worldwide small cell equipment market by 2021, predicts ABI Research.
