AI has been touted as the panacea to operators’ network complexity woes. By deploying AI applications for the radio access network (RAN), it’s hoped that operators will be able to automate and optimize base station processes. Many operators are already investing in the technology: spending on AI-driven network management software is forecast to grow to […]

MWC19 was undoubtedly the year of 5G: 5G-enabled handsets were on show, as were 5G modems, 5G broadcasts, use cases – including a demo of live tele-monitored surgery over 5G – plus a whole host of network equipment. VIAVI too used MWC19 as an opportunity to show off some impressive kit, and to demonstrate to […]

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 value […]

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 […]
