The 5G mobile communications standard is designed to fulfill several performance and use case requirements currently not possible in 4G networks, including: Enhanced broadband that brings fiber-optic speeds and bandwidth to over-the-air (OTA) connections Low latencies and extreme reliability for realtime OTA process control Much higher device densities that will enable the massive Internet of […]
It was the technology visionary Steve Jobs (1955–2011) who expanded the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard’s (1813–1855) philosophical quote which originally said, “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” Steve applied this notion to technology saying, “You cannot connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So […]
Amid all the positive signs about the advent of 5G, mobile communications service providers have a number of questions. Are they doing things right today? Should they change their offerings? How should they monetize data traffic and services when 5G comes along? Are there newer and better ways in which to monetize traffic and usage […]
5G will create exciting opportunities for you to collaborate with enterprises to deliver premium digital experiences. To seize these opportunities, you need a monetization solution that simplifies partnering and enables new levels of business speed, scale and innovation. Learn how an early start on deploying a 5G-ready monetization solution will help you boost revenue for […]
This article looks at widespread deployment of 5G and the benefits that could stem from it including ultra-low latency, increased data throughput and edge computing potential.
It’s easy to consider 5G as a progression of internet speeds and bandwidths from 4G that will make the instant gratification that we expect from our online experience even more instantaneous. But 5G is about more than just enabling unprecedented speed. Its architecture will profoundly transform the way people experience their homes and cities, how […]
3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP): Originally convened to establish agreed upon standards for 3G wireless technology, the 3GPP is a collaboration group of telecommunication standard setting associations. The 3GPP is one of the groups currently working on new standards for 5G wireless technology. Beamforming: Traditionally, wireless signals are broadcasted in all directions, but beamforming, signals […]
