By 2020, more than half of United States households are expected to have 4K- and 8K-capable televisions. Wired broadband can support 4K/8K video streaming in homes, but it can’t support data-thirsty apps on the go.
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 […]
The world of mobile is filled with opportunity, but, to make an impact, your digital property needs to be used by thousands – if not millions – of users around the world. These users are on different devices, operating systems, networks and more. To keep them happy and loyal, your users must be delighted and […]
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.
Customers with unmanaged mobility programs are spending too much and getting too little in terms of data protection and employee productivity. If your mobility program consists of unfettered mobile data usage and IT passing out expensive smartphones — or letting any user-owned device access your network — you are spending too much and putting sensitive […]
For channel partners, the telecom buyer landscape is changing. In this article, we look at the expanding role of mobility in helping agents identify key business decision makers as well as to establish credibility as a trusted seller of managed services. We also explore the potential for mobile-enabled agents to modernize the sales process through […]
With Microsoft’s Intune Graph APIs, partners can pull PCs, tablets and smartphones under one policy and control umbrella, commonly described as unified endpoint management, or UEM. That should be music to the ears of any partner with a mobility management practice — but beware Windows desktop admins seeking to preserve the status quo. Learn about […]
The routing mechanism currently used for internet peering has remained largely unchanged over the past few decades, but it is fraught with problems. It still relies heavily on slow manual configuration, which requires skilled engineers and is laborious and errorprone. Added to this, the lack of visibility and the limitations of the Border Gateway Protocol […]
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 […]
