Establish hybrid work environments in companies, allowing employees to work remotely and to do so safely, with guaranteed access to corporate applications and without loss of productivity. This is smart teleworking and this is how we start a new edition of our MCPRO Pills.
We also tell you how the evolution of mobile networks has facilitated the development of what is known as Open RAN, a new generation of technological solutions that allow 5G networks to be more powerful and capable of supporting more connections in an ecosystem than all competitors benefit.
We are not losing sight of the havoc that Lapsus$ Group continues to wreak, a group of hackers who, after breaking into Otka’s systems, are gaining access to valuable information from many of its clients, including Microsoft itself. We chat with Laura D. De la Torre who tells us about what it means to lead large digital transformation processes in companies like Wolters Kluwer and we explain what Arquimea is, a technological patron to keep track of. Let’s start!
Open RAN, the path to more affordable and innovative 5G networks
Mobile networks have gradually evolved over the last two decades. Thus, from 2G and 3G to 4G, and in more and more countries and points on the planet, these have already given way to 5G networks. At the same time, the world has been increasing its dependence on these networks.
As a consequence, it is not only necessary to increase its power to be able to admit more and more connections, and for these to be more powerful. It has also become essential that the networks reach more and more of the population, and offer greater coverage. Both indoors and outdoors.
Work from Anywhere: discover smart telecommuting

And although this of course has many advantages for all those involved (the workers themselves, of course, also for the companies), it can also present technological difficulties.
