"Open Research Institute and Phase 4 Ground are honoured to be given the chance to put advanced software defined radio hardware like the LimeSDR Mini into the hands of active developers across the world," says ORI's Michelle Thompson of the hardware grant.
Free and open source package includes LTE Release 8 support, selected LTE Release 9 features, and full compatibility with Lime Microsystems' LimeSDR family of open software defined radio (SDR) hardware.
"Those new tagged/released versions contain half a year of work since the previous versions released during summer 2018," explains project maintainer Harald Welte. "The primary focus was on bug-fixing and stabilisation as well as some major new features, such as inter-BSC-handover support in osmo-bsc."
"We share a software-defined vision with Canonical," explains Lime Micro's Ebrahim Bushehri. "Ubuntu Core, snaps, and IoT app stores create a secure, open-source platform that enables our partners to develop and deploy new disruptive technologies quickly."
"In the end," explains the GateHouse Telecom director of satcom, "this will lead to improved flexibility and user experience of satellite terminals, thus improve conditions for end users."
"Researchers said the high-speed can reduce the risk of deadly medical mistakes," reports local news outlet the South China Morning Post, "and raises hopes that 5G-enabled remote surgery will soon be reliable enough for use on human patients."
"Context-aware networks and artificial intelligence (AI)," the report explains, "which can process context transfer patterns and correlate them with user, device, application, and security context meta-data to make predictive decisions, present the UK with a significant innovation opportunity."
5G could revolutions jobs, healthcare, education, and "equalise some of the economic development opportunities and the places where some employers want to be located," claims former Delaware governor Jack Markell.
"Technology plays an increasingly important role in connecting people over Christmas," claims Vodafone UK's chief technology officer Scott Petty. "Flying a drone over 4G for the first time gives us a glimpse of what Christmas deliveries of the future might look like."
