"5G New Radio is, however, much more complex than LTE given beam steering and mmWave signals," writes Martin Rowe in a piece for EDN. One possible answer: machine learning smarts at the network's edge.
"We need a new architecture for applications that changes the fixed, hierarchical client/server model," says Armani. "We need to build a larger, faster cloud where billions of devices at the edge can participate as either clients or servers, and provide services directly for one another. We need the edge cloud."
"There's going to be a transformation from the hardware side of things into a more open or disaggregated view," Chua tells Fierce Telecom. "Then from there, when you go up the stack, you would see more of the same thing."
"This agreement with ETSI signals it's possible to reach a harmonisation of collaborative activities across open source and standards for the networking industry," claims Linux Foundation GM Arpit Joshipura. "Working together results in less fragmentation, faster deployments, and more streamlined innovation."
"What all these updates have in common is that they’re proving that our network transformation is real. It works," says Andre Fuetsch. "We know there are entrenched interests that want to see the old models prevail. But that's not happening. We're determined to find a better path forward for ourselves, our industry, and, most importantly, for our customers."
ITU filings reveal a 3,236 satellite constellation in low Earth orbits, providing coverage for around 95 percent of the world's population - and a clear reason behind last year's launch of the Amazon Web Services Ground Station platform.
"We are excited to collaborate with O-RAN Alliance in bringing communities together to create software for this important access area of telecommunications," says the Linux Foundation's Arpit Joshipura. "This step towards execution marks another major milestone in networking partnerships across standards and open source organisations."
"A statement will be published in Q3, with auction applications expected to begin in December 2019," the UK's communication regulator explains. "We will also publish a statement in Q2 on potential spectrum-based solutions to improving coverage both indoors and in rural communities."
"5G is indeed the next big thing in wireless," says Pai. "It has transformative potential, including much faster speeds, much lower latency, much more capacity, and new services and applications, many of which nobody can even predict today."
"Drones offer exciting opportunities for the future that will benefit society and the economy. However, we need to make sure they are used safely and responsibly," explains Vodafone Business UK director Anne Sheehan. "We are delighted to bring our mobile connectivity expertise to the NBEC consortium so that drone technology can be further tested and developed."
