The Software Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) market is rapidly expanding. According to a recent report by MarketsandMarkets, the global SD-WAN market size is expected to grow from US$1 billion in 2018 to US$4.1 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 32.7% during the forecast period. Alan Stewart–Brown, VP of EMEA at Opengear, says , SD-WAN has rapidly become the standard in enterprise deployments. An SD-WAN network can manage multiple types of connections, from LTE to broadband to multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) links.

A technical look at 5G mobile device energy efficiency

Article | February 27, 2020

Reducing the level of energy consumption associated with cellular network operations is a strong focus area for Ericsson, and a key sustainability improvement goal. Our post on 5G energy consumption highlights advances in network energy efficiency, but the energy consumed by individual mobile devices also needs to be considered. For example, many components contribute to the energy consumption of a modern smartphone, such as apps, operating systems, and the screen. However, cellular radio also contributes as a critical factor. With 5G, the range of device types is extensive, including built-in modems, smart wearables, and wireless sensors as just a few examples.

Making Sense of the 5G Spectrum Mess

Article | February 27, 2020

Spectrum has been the lifeblood of the wireless industry since its inception. Without it, mobile connectivity simply doesn’t exist. That remains true as ever in a 5G world, but 5G also dramatically changes the breadth and depth of spectrum that is required to power lower latency, higher bandwidth, and more connections per cell site. The spectrum held by most operators today is not enough to deliver all of these key features of 5G, and early 5G customers have experienced these limitations first hand. Operators will need hundreds of megahertz of clean spectrum to provide 5G networks sporting the oft-promised multi-gigabit speeds. Network operators will, in most cases, need a healthy mix of low-, mid-, and high-band spectrum to fulfill that promise. None of America’s mobile network operators have the right ingredients to mix a genuine 5G cocktail today.

5G Needs Edge Computing to Deliver on Its Promises

Article | February 27, 2020

Edge computing will be a key enabler for 5G to deliver on its bandwidth and latency requirements. In the short term, it can enable developers to provide a “5G experience” at scale. In the long term, it will be necessary to optimise customer experience for real-time, data hungry applications. Telecoms operators have reported that 5G in the lab can deliver network speeds that are more than twenty times faster than LTE1. But, this does not reflect the experience of the average user. And 5G roll out in many countries will be limited in terms of coverage and capabilities for several more years, given that the ultra-low latency standards will only be revealed in 3GPP’s Release 16 later this year. This is why it is likely that, for 5G to deliver on its promises, it must be coupled with edge computing.

Why the coronavirus response may unleash 5G

Article | February 27, 2020

Before the COVID-19 crisis, the biggest news in tech was the ongoing -- and controversial -- rollout of the 5G network. First, there was the ban on Chinese companies, prohibiting them from being involved with 5G infrastructure in the U.S., U.K. and Australia. Then articles started pointing out that the threat profile for 5G was an order of magnitude higher than that of existing telecom protocols. The coronavirus outbreak, though, has forced some analysts to reassess the value of 5G. While security concerns remain, the network has been invaluable in the fight against the pandemic.
