"An audience poll here at the Edge Computing Congress," writes Ray Le Maistre, "showed that almost all attendees at the first morning's keynotes (almost 300 in the room -- my estimate) saw the main financial opportunity related to edge computing as being related to new revenue opportunities from new or enhanced services (rather than cost savings)" - though experts say cost savings are definitely there for the taking too.
"The initiation of ICD validates the ability of Federal and civil users to work together to share spectrum, a feat that many had claimed could not be accomplished," says Dr. Eric Schmidt. "I look forward to seeing the innovation in wireless services, business models, and technologies that this will enable."
"Any government that prices spectrum to maximise revenue now does so with full knowledge that its actions will have negative repercussions on citizens and the development of mobile services.," says GSMA's Brett Tarnutzer. "We now have clear evidence that shows by restricting the financial ability of operators to invest in mobile networks millions of consumers are suffering."
"The main idea for my narrowband transponder solution," Estevez explains, "is that the BeagleBone Black will just run some software which controls the LimeSDR Mini and streams IQ samples using Ethernet to and from another computer where all the heavy duty work is done."
"Over the next few years, LEO satellites will be abundantly available at favourable geometric configurations and will transmit in several frequency bands," Inside GNSS explains, "making them an accurate and robust navigation source."
"Let the developers hack on DSP," say the maintainers of the popular software defined radio development toolkit. "Software interfaces are for humans, not the other way around."
The combination of the LimeSDR Mini low-cost software defined radio platform and satcom software distributed on a dedicated app store designed to accelerate development while bringing down the barriers to entry.
New release adds support for network slicing in NFV, management over multi-administrative domains, and multi-site network connectivity, all highlighted by ETSI as of benefit to 5G networks thanks to its partnership with 3GPP.
"In the long run, telco edge deployments will become the de facto platforms to deliver services close to end users and enterprise facilities," says ABI Research analyst Don Alusha. "5G and edge are partner technologies, and in the long term neither can become truly profitable without the other.
