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 […]

  The technology in a radio tower is undergoing dramatic change, which is presenting tough real-world challenges for the crews that carry out the installation work. Riggers, or tower climbers as they’re better known in the US, are finding that as networks become more complex, their role is becoming increasingly difficult. As technicians, riggers perform […]

Centralized Radio Access Network (C-RAN) deployment is a growing trend in the wireless industry. I am often asked what is driving this trend, why some operators are using it more than others, and what are some of the challenges and benefits of C-RAN. In this blog, I will try to capture some of those questions […]

Security Forensics

Another day, another cyberattack. Just as companies were recovering after the WannaCry attack, a number of organizations were hit by Petya… or NotPetya. Name it as you see fit. In a matter of just two months, two devastating ransomware attacks have crippled networks globally. Clearly, security threats are multiplying in intensity and complexity. But what […]
