The next steps for 3GPP, release 16 and 17, will introduce additional features to further enhance the support for new use cases related to smart manufacturing, connected vehicles, electrical power distribution and more, such as drones which are controlled by the network. All of these potentially critical use cases require ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) which means high reliability and availability, as well as very low end-to-end latency in the range of a few milliseconds. The 5G system is designed with this in mind, and the continued evolution of 5G New Radio (NR) will continue to optimize mobility performance further. A critical part of this is to reduce the handover interruption time between cells in the 5G network.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk first announced a plan to launch thousands of satellites into space in 2015 as part of a broadband internet service project called Starlink. Musk's initiated the project "to deploy the world's most advanced broadband internet system," according to SpaceX's Starlink website. "With performance that far surpasses that of traditional satellite internet, and a global network unbounded by ground infrastructure limitations, Starlink will deliver high speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable," the site reads.

Enhanced security and privacy are cornerstones of 5G Core, but service providers still need to be able to capture quality, actionable data to secure the end-customer experience. Specifically, I’m referring to the data needed to perform troubleshooting, monitoring, customer care and analytics for marketing campaigns. But can this be done in 5G Core using traditional probing methods, without breaching security? The 3GPP standardization for 5G considers enhanced security to be an essential network component. Imagine, for a moment, that we live in a world where it’s common for open heart surgery to be conducted remotely, and I’m sure you’ll agree. The need for a secure, reliable network has resulted in the introduction of a new Service Based Architecture (SBA) that utilizes encrypted interfaces between network functions (NFs). Traffic between network functions is deployed in a cloud native 5G Core Kubernetes node and will not be visible outside the cluster, meaning traditional probing solutions are unsustainable.

In a recent release, Viavi Solutions revealed new industry data that indicates a rapid surge in the spread of 5G technology over the last year. As of January 2020, commercial 5G networks have been deployed in 378 cities across 34 countries, according to the new VIAVI report, “The State of 5G Deployments.” South Korea leads the world at 85 cities with 5G availability, followed by China with 57, the United States at 50, and the U.K., with 31. In terms of regional coverage, EMEA is ahead, having 168 cities where 5G networks have been deployed, Asia is second with 156 cities, and only 54 cities are covered by 5G across the Americas. Deployments include both mobile and fixed wireless 5G networks, under the report’s parameters.
