Overcoming the edge security reality of real 5G
Enabling applications to perform at 5G speeds to ensure expected user experience is one thing, but ensuring that this happens securely, across more network access points than ever before, presents an entirely new set of very serious challenges.
5G revenue opportunities for telcos and enterprises
5G is highly capable of creating newer growth opportunities for all businesses across industries. This is also true for telecom service providers that have been facing immense competition from the increasing popularity of OTT platforms and services over the last five years.
Rethinking the telco of the future
The emergence of network embedded services, network slicing capabilities and the ability to spin up individual sub-networks with their own Quality of Service (QoS) and tailored service experiences will see 5G become a key strategic business enabler.
5G digital transformation: Capturing and analyzing data in a continuous flow
As 5G digital transformations continue to upend traditional business processes, enterprise organizations have the most to gain. The imperative for these organizations is now to identify ways to monetize the data they ingest in order to gain a competitive edge in today's fail-fast business economy. To do this, they must move data-driven intelligence closer to the edge of the network.
Survey shows player one is ready for 5G
Ribbon surveyed 5,000 dedicated gamers to see what they thought about the potential for 5G technology and gaming. The goal was to examine whether the technology potential was matched by market expectation or demand.
Who disaggregated my RAN?
While much of the network has already benefited from a wave of disaggregation and virtualization in support of 4G/LTE, the RAN remains the last piece of the network to be disaggregated. This blog post provides the background that has led to the industry's push for the adoption of an open, disaggregated RAN.
Five crucial elements of 5G security
CIOs, CISOs, architects and operators designing for 5G needs should consider five key elements: scalability, performance coupled with security, secure SD-WAN, segmentation and VNF/PNF.
Clearing the spectrum for 5G
Indeed, all stakeholders must continue to work together to create flexible models for spectrum management, including standards, incentives and enforcement mechanisms that promote efficient and effective spectrum use. In addition, they must include flexible-use spectrum allocations or licenses, while accounting for critical safety and security concerns.
5G fixed wireless access and ROI opportunities for telcos
5G World's Francesca Greane discusses the future of 5G with Huawei's Dr. Mohamed Madkour, in addition to the impact of the technology on vertical markets, and how technological developments such as mobile edge computing are going to change telco services.
The cloud-native telco takeover
5G and the cloud brings real structural change to the table and could deliver new revenues from a range of enterprise services that extend far beyond standard connectivity.
5G success requires security by design
With the introduction of 5G, the total amount of connections, users and the number of innovative applications will increase dramatically. More attention to the security of this growing landscape is thus required.
Demystifying private 5G
We are at an exciting time where the convergence of licensed and unlicensed access technologies will foster the evolution of private networks, public networks and Wi-Fi 6 networks. They will collaborate and compete to bring enormous benefits to the entire ecosystem.
5G's post-pandemic prognosis is hopeful
Many employees are now sequestered to their homes because of COVID-19, and the current 4G Wi-Fi network is experiencing a surge in demand. While the promise of 5G – lower latency and higher reliability and data rates – was just around the corner, wide-scale adoption has also been put on hold – at least for now.
The future of 5G: What consumers really expect
Although 5G will continue to roll out for several years to come, 2020 will be the year where it’s expected to prove its worth. With a solid foundation being built by significant providers and with more than 15 5G-equipped smartphones entering the market this year, 2020 could very well be the tipping point for adoption.
One giant leap for a common 5G core
Thanks to collaborative efforts by the Broadband Forum, 3GPP and CableLabs, operators are starting to evaluate new architectures that allow fixed and mobile broadband access to be supported by a common 5G core network.
The perfect pair: Edge computing + 5G
With the emerging 5G ecosystem, we are in the middle of a data revolution that has operators scrambling to overcome the challenges associated with having a centralized cloud computing environment. Edge computing promises to remedy these challenges.
5G readiness for a world changed by crisis
The Coronavirus pandemic points to a compelling need for mobility, communications and faster data – both immediately and in the future. This blog explains the state of 5G today, corporate readiness and suggests practical steps executives should take to become 5G ready.
What is the enterprise case for 5G?
Commercial 5G networks only just emerging. For enterprises, this is an awkward time. Clearly no one wants to miss out on the opportunity, but to date plenty of questions remain unanswered.
FPGA-based network acceleration for 5G network slicing
As the implementation of network virtualization has risen sharply in the last few years, organizations have included network slicing in the design and implementation of their virtualized infrastructure. Defining network slicing is an important precursor to any discussion on its capabilities and techniques for realization and management.
Extraordinary circumstances bring new meaning to 5G
The potential of 5G has taken on new significance through the experience of confinement during the coronavirus pandemic. It has suddenly become obvious just how vital the communications infrastructure we often take for granted is to our lives.
A brain surgeon's perspective on 5G and AR
As hospitals and medical centers continue to innovate new treatments in their facilities to improve the outcomes of their patients, they are implementing using new cutting-edge technology – like augmented reality – that requires cross-industry collaboration.
Wi-Fi 6 vs. 5G: Key advantages for businesses
In a world where access to the Internet and your data has become a necessity for every business, the new superfast Internet speeds and high-bandwidth efficiencies that these technologies will deliver are something worth getting excited about.
5G's impact on the future of work
