"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."
"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.
"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."
