Information Centric Networking (ICN) is receiving increasing interest in the context of future wireless networks. So, what is ICN? Why is it important and will it have a role in next generation 5G networks? I think it will and for some very good reasons. ICN is a research area that dates back to about 2006 and has been cooking for over a decade. It defines a new way of inter-networking or, as I see it, a very natural next step now for the internet—if it is done right.

5G Challenges: Exploring the Biggest Challenges for 5G Deployment

Article | March 31, 2020

5G promises exciting advances for communications service providers (CSPs), but the 5G rollout is going to be challenging. CSPs must rapidly build out dense, low-latency edge networks in ways that are affordable, secure, and easily maintainable. CSPs are looking toward open-source, container-based network infrastructures that meet the 5G latency, reliability, and flexibility requirements while being inexpensive to deploy and maintain.
