In order to keep up with the need for more connected devices, as well as demands for increased data speeds and reliability, technology standards for cellular networks are expanding into their fifth generation, called 5G. Learn the benefits and challenges of 5G mmWave, including compliance testing and promising use cases.
This 5G Q&A will give you a good intro to 5G: how does is differ from today’s 4G LTE, what are the new IoT uses cases and how can MNOs benefit from G5 technology.
Edge computing reduces the latency between a device and service where latency is the roundtrip time between two systems over a network. While reducing latency is one of the its main benefits, edge computing has other benefits that will be exposed as 5G use cases are discussed.
5G, the fifth-generation cellular network, will be a key enabler of many emerging technologies. Smart cities, smart factories, autonomous vehicles and many other tech targets will all depend on 5G. But as wonderful as it will be, 5G comes with a whole slew of design challenges. Industry veteran Fram Akiki explains the benefits and design challenges of 5G.
China might be crushing it in 5G, but the rapid rollout is also widening its digital divide. According to the latest MIIT figures, Chinese operators have deployed 480,000 5G base stations – that’s at least twice as much as the rest of the world combined.
But these base stations serve a tiny proportion of potential users. Shenzhen has 45,000, Beijing 44,000 and Shanghai 56,000. In other words, 30% of China’s base station population serves 4% of its human population.
This webinar gives data center managers some key cabling strategies to manage multiple waves of 5G — helping ensure next-generation coverage for billions of devices. Topics include the three phases of 5G deployment, data processing at the edge to reduce latency, and centralized data centers to support the workloads generated by 5G.
Cloudlets, or mini-clouds, are starting to roll out closer to the sources of data in an effort to reduce latency and improve overall processing performance. But as this approach gains steam, it also is creating some new challenges involving data distribution, storage and security.
Technological innovations in the optoelectronics sector, increasing use of electronic gadgets and rising demand for power-efficient devices are the major factors which are driving the growth in the Global Optoelectronics Market.
Capitalizing on growth in 5G technology and with support from state and local officials, a startup company called viaPhoton has opened a fiber-optics factory in Aurora, where it is hiring 30 people and hopes to add another 200 employees in three to five years.
CEO Baber Abbas said the company will supply data centers and mobile communications companies throughout the Midwest. Its presence here will help Illinois expand access to 5G services statewide.
Do you know 5G’s 3 major benefits, 8 technical goals that deliver those benefits, and 4 technology building blocks that meet the technical goals? This article discusses the technology’s enhanced mobile broadband/capacity enhancements, massive IoT/massive connectivity, and low latency/ultra-high reliability and low latency. The proximity of each application to each benefit in the triangle indicates the benefit’s influence on the application.
