Back-to-back WiFi deployments at two high-density stadium venues with very tight timelines was quite challenging. As discussed in the previous two blogs of this series (see Part 1 & Part 2), the venues were different in terms of stadium layout, structure and seating capacity. As a result the WiFi network design also turned out to be different in many ways. Nevertheless, the underlying design principles and methodology were the same.

How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | April 8, 2020

The current global pandemic is drastically impacting our daily lives, and as a result, the relevance of such digital applications and services is accelerating. For example, we suddenly see an increased need for communication services, tools for remote collaboration, and fast and reliable access to data – whether it’s from the office, the home or somewhere in between. Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) are two technology concepts providing significant benefits in this new digital reality. These technologies open new ways of working in areas such as manufacturing, gaming, media, automotive and healthcare, allowing for both increased productivity and completely new user experiences. In the Ericsson ConsumerLab merged reality report, 7 out of 10 early adopters expect VR and AR to change everyday life fundamentally.

Five ways to win at antenna integration

Article | May 7, 2021

Antennas are fundamental to the performance of connected devices, but are often implemented as an afterthought, resulting not only in sub-optimal performance, but also in less-than-ideal form factor. It can also have a negative impact on cost for the device as a whole. It is therefore essential that organisations prioritise antenna design as part of a holistic device design philosophy – bear in mind that it is practically impossible to fix bad antenna design. Early decisions need to be made regarding the relative merits of embedded or external devices and then attention can turn to optimising antenna integration.

Poor Power Supply, Inadequate Fibre Cables May Hinder 5G Network – NCC

Article | March 2, 2020

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), has said that the current level of power situation in the country as well as the inadequate fibre cables may impact negatively on the commercialisation of the fifth generation network, 5G These are the key challenges identified by experts from the commission at the Social Media Week, Lagos (SMWL) on Thursday, during the NCC session themed: Fifth Network Deployment: Social Economic Benefits and Challenges. The experts from the commission agreed that the power infrastructure gaps that currently exist in the country does not encourage that level of technology and prays things improve before telecom operators in Nigeria are ready for massive rollout of the business.

Achieving Network Visibility and Security in the Age of 5G

Article | March 31, 2020

Technology is constantly evolving, and one of the most visible signs of this in 2020 is the advent of widespread 5G mobile networks. These networks provide higher speeds and support for more devices, making it possible for enterprises to deploy Internet of Things (IoT) devices in environments where it would previously have been impossible. However, with 5G comes security concerns. As business traffic moves onto mobile networks, organizations lose visibility and security. A software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solution provides an organization with the ability to secure these new devices without sacrificing network performance.
