"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."
"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."
