The fifth-generation global wireless technology promises to deliver data rates at faster speed, low latency, and the ability to power brand-new experiences in 2021. With its superior network performance, the arrival of 5G promises to transform our daily lives. Because of this, 5G is expected to drive most of the anticipation and activity in the […]

During the installation of a wireless network, antenna alignment counts. As mobile operators plan coverage objectives, it is critically important that antenna alignment is accurately implemented during cell site installation. Otherwise, it may result in coverage gaps, network performance degradation, and loss of revenue. It is equally important that installers are equipped with an effective […]

Learn about VIAVI 5G Solutions 5G is in its infancy, which means challenges – in terms of testing, launching and funding new networks – still remain. Yet major industry players including Apple, Google, Ericsson and Nokia have announced their participation in industry research initiatives to develop 6G. How can we incorporate learnings from the ongoing […]

Today, we are in the midst of rapidly expanding 5G’s global footprint. Around the world, over 70 mobile operators have deployed commercial 5G services, and many more are expected to follow by the end of 2020. This continuous expansion and evolution of 5G will not be as successful without the existence of technology inventions that […]

There are various ways to which 5G mobile networks can improve the way we live – yet, they are framed as a luxury rather than a necessity. These networks produce faster speeds and lower latency that facilitates ultra-high definition video streaming, which are typically perceived as a means to enhance smartphone and gaming experience. However, […]

In an ideal world, all installations are flawless, and construction and commissioning should feel like plug-and-play with no need to test any of the network components or the cables that connect them. However, in the real world, we routinely encounter errors during installation projects, such as defective or damaged components, untrained or inexperienced installers, and […]

In 2020, experts estimate that there are at least 31 billion IoT-connected devices worldwide. These devices rely on 5G connection to function properly and thus, perhaps now more than ever, there is a huge demand for 5G-ready telecom engineers and fiber contractors. In fact, research conducted by IHS Markit has predicted that by the year […]

In a data center environment, there are several key considerations that go into whether to deploy a multimode fiber, short-wavelength or a single mode-fiber-based, long-wavelength optical network. As they continue to drive critical business processes with fiber-optic connectivity as their backbone to allow connection with link servers, storage systems, and switches, both data centers and […]

Despite the emergence of the internet of things (IoT) and increasing implementation of the first wave of 5G, the telecom industry is facing an inflection point and remains stuck in a low-growth mode. In fact, the decline in mobile voice services is expected to continue in the foreseeable future, which will largely offset the revenue […]
