Delivering Connected Intelligence at the Edge with AI and 5G

Enterprises are using AI in conjunction with network connectivity to automate operations and generate analytical insights that improve products and services. Many are now adding 5G to connect devices to these systems because its high-speed, high-capacity, and ultra-reliable low latency characteristics can enable new use cases for AI or enhance current offerings. Until now, AI …

Beyond eMBB: 5G for enterprise digital transformation

In its current form, 5G is focused on delivering an enhanced mobile broadband experience to consumers. But, in terms of creating new revenue opportunities, operators are looking to enterprise digital transformation to deliver 5G use cases that draw on the full feature set of eMBB, massive IoT, and ultra-reliable low-latency communications. As 5G continues to …

Real-time Application and New Service Revenue Opportunities

With one notable exception, commercial 5G networks use a non-standalone architecture wherein new 5G NR radio infrastructure is connected to an Evolved Packet Core that also supports LTE data transmissions. Virtualization of EPC functionality is common but stops short of the cloud-native core network needed for a standalone 5G implementation. With non-standalone 5G, the emphasis …

How 5G Network Could Improve Business: Coverage, Performance, Bandwidth, and Access

The benefits that 5G could provide right now are often overlooked. The hype surrounding future use cases can overshadow the benefits that 5G is already capable of bringing. While these enhancements to current broadband capabilities are perceived as less fundamentally disruptive, they could enable organizations to begin taking advantage of 5G now, helping their businesses …

When the Changing Definition of 5G Real-Time Breaks Existing Tech Stack

In this article, we look at how the expectations of 5G are colliding with how we host and develop software. Several factors are coming together to break how we do things: 5G’s millisecond latency expectations mean that the laws of physics will force us to operate under constraints that can’t be bypassed with more or …

Key Challenges for 5G Networks New Radio (NR) Field Testing

Live field testing 5G networks ensure that beams are transmitting accurately to fulfil performance metrics such as throughput per cell, throughput per device, and Quality of Experience (QoE). Learn about the key challenges that mobile network operators face in this article.
