Although 5G is still in its early stage, it isn’t anything esoteric, even if you may not consider yourself a digital-first company. With 5G set to become the impetus of forward-thinking organizations, Singapore is taking the lead with its deployment. The nation’s mobile network operators (MNOs) are currently racing in a bid to become one […]

The prescription for precise SSB configuration As 5G moves from the lab into the field, service provider (SP) deployment teams are learning about the nuances of different 5G NR implementations. Unsurprisingly, all 5G NR implementations are not the same, but getting a solid dose of understanding on beamforming and the impact of profile configuration is […]

It’s New Year’s Eve, the clock strikes midnight. You try making a VoLTE call to your friend to wish them well, but the call fails. WhatsApp is down, and your message doesn’t go through. At the very least networks should be able to handle 4G demands; the alternative is having to handle subscriber complaints and […]

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 […]
