With 5G the talk is more than just about the network. 5G will be transformational, with the coming of the new RAN, beamforming, mmWave etc. Yet, for mobile operators this is as much about business transformation as it is about network transformation.  It’s about new business models and growing revenue streams, collaboratively working across the […]

The world is going mobile and we’re consuming more data every year, particularly as the popularity of video and music streaming increases, and that’s just from humans.  Machines and devices are increasingly acting as consumers of Internet bandwidth and generating even more traffic on the network.  Consequently, the industry is in the throes of implementing […]

As 5G moves from a concept in the lab to a commercial field-deployable solution, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) are working hard to ensure 5G delivers on its promise of gigabit throughput, massive machine type communication and ultra-reliable low latency communications. Time-to-market and conformance to 3GPP specs are key to their success and in achieving the […]

5G is and will be transformational – not only in terms of the network but also in terms of what the technology enables and the resulting business opportunities. As Sameh Yamany, our CTO describes in his Forbes article When 5G Hype Becomes Reality, 5G is not simply “4G on steroids”. It’s not just about more […]

5G will be an innovation platform that will provide the ability to bring new services to market quickly with use cases that will allow ultra-fast mobile broadband, mission critical communication, massive device connectivity, and ultra-low latency. How networks and their different components will evolve will be nothing short of a revolution; we will see network […]

Gigabit LTE technology is supposed to help service providers (SPs) overcome the data tsunami until 5G technology becomes commercially ready. At the same time Gigabit LTE will allow SPs to maximize on their current network investments by delaying significant upgrade costs and improving the spectral efficiency of today’s network. If optimized well, Gigabit LTE will […]

When we talk about 5G or any other wireless technology, our brain focuses on the wireless aspect of the technology. In reality, only the last hop of the wireless network is actually wireless. Most of the data communication happens over a wired network. RF spectrum being such a precious resource, mobile operators try their best […]

On March 22, VIAVI held a webinar on real-world narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) testing. The webinar covered IoT market trends, an NB-IoT technology overview, field testing scenarios, and NB-IoT measurements. But the best part by far was the Q & A! We got so many great questions, we decided to turn them into a blog post. […]

The evolution to virtualization and cloud, network automation, massive traffic growth, IoT, increasing service velocity and revenue growth…together with the advent of 5G.  These are just some of the challenges mobile service providers face today. Consumers are demanding that mobile services are always on, always available, and everything is connected. In response, operators are deploying […]

The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to drive the next technological revolution that will change how we live and work. IoT will enable billions of devices with intelligent sensors and machine learning capabilities that will communicate, sense, and interact with internal or external systems, all without human intervention. To reach to this potential, the […]
