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 […]

One of the most common forms of network threats today is distributed denial of service (DDoS). An attack involves flooding networks and servers with false internet traffic, thereby blocking access to genuine devices. Sometimes used to target specific businesses, cyber-attacks can bring down entire telecoms networks, as was the case in the attack on Dyn, […]

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 […]

Fiber Deployment is on the rise (no shock there).  How do you transfer need-it-now, real experience to a new (and inexperienced) fiber tech? There are any number of things that you can point to to demonstrate what is driving growth in fiber deployment including regional FTTH/PON initiatives, national high-speed broadband growth, core 100/200G upgrades, or […]

400G - we're making the right mistakes

Con Houlihan, the great Irish sports writer from my hometown of Castleisland, once replied to a young poet who had shared his writing, “Keep going. You’re making all the right mistakes.” As a young boy, the words did not fully resonate with me, but now—a bit older and hopefully wiser—I can see the wisdom therein […]

5G New Radio (NR) connectivity for the enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) use case will transform the mobile experience for consumers and business across the globe. Delivering mobile data speeds up to 100 times faster than today’s 4G networks, 5G NR will also offer huge improvements in latency (network responsiveness) and reach. It will enable high […]

sinkingship

5G Challenges Current Timing & Sync Standards Investment in the mobile ecosystem is driven by seemingly insatiable consumer demand for mobile bandwidth. Supplying it to them is arguably a great business to be in. Mobile operators will continue to compete for market share by deploying 5G for more bandwidth capacity, and adding more radio towers […]
