Harnessing SD-WAN for intelligent networks

October 16, 2019 | 193 views

The public sector faces constant change in terms of policy, technology and the population it serves. Add this to the desire for transformation, continuing budget restraint and inexorably increasing demand for services, and there is a clear challenge to the infrastructure that underpins operations. It became clear during a recent UKA Live discussion that the sector has much to gain from harnessing an agile new generation of intelligent networks that can respond to change in real-time, are flexible enough to take advantage of new technologies as they come on stream and capable of powering excellent anytime, anywhere services to both citizens and staff alike.

Ericsson researchers top 4.3Gbps downlink on 5G millimeter wave

Article | June 7, 2022

With a technical specification comprising 8 component carriers (8CC) aggregating 800MHz of millimeter wave spectrum, Ericsson engineers achieved delivery rates of 4.3Gbps – the fastest 5G speed to date. Ericsson Radio System Street Macro 6701 delivered data with downlink speeds of 4.3Gbps over-the-air to an industry partner test device during interoperability testing. The commercial solution, including network and terminal support, will be available to 5G consumers during 2020.

Intelligence Brief: How is 5G changing network ownership?

Article | August 23, 2022

5G necessitates a different network strategy. Unlike previous generations, 5G deployment is not only about adding more sites and increasing backhaul capacity. In fact, it is more about rethinking the whole network architecture to make it agile. The high capacity requirements of 5G will necessitate the use of small cells in cities and areas of high footfall (such as airports) to complement national macro networks. Private networks (for example to sell into enterprise customers) and the concept of a neutral host (such as for sports stadiums) are further examples of diversification.

5G Needs Edge Computing to Deliver on Its Promises

Article | February 11, 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.

Google bans 5G coronavirus conspiracy theory ads

Techradar | April 08, 2020

Google has announced a crackdown on adverts around misguided conspiracy theories concerning a link between coronavirus and 5G networks. The search giant has said it will be banning advertising on search terms and keywords that relate to “misleading health claims” surrounding 5G and coronavirus. The news follows a number of attacks by conspiracy theorists on 5G masts across the UK, despite repeated advice from scientists that there is no link between the global pandemic and the high-speed networks. This looks to prevents companies and individuals from profiteering from public health emergencies by blocking their adverts from appearing in search results. Earlier this week, scientists, the UK government and the country's mobile industry joined together to plead for the spread of misinformation to stop. As well as attacks on masts, telecoms and networking infrastructure workers have also faced abuse and assault.
