But for mobile service providers, there are several things to consider and implement into a mobile network to make a voice service work over 5G. We prepared a ‘5G voice for dummies’ infographic, so you can learn the basics in 10 minutes.

How service providers can unlock the coveted SME market

Article | June 7, 2021

For communications service providers, questions still loom over how 5G will be monetized. Many have voiced the view that the enterprise segment is where 5G will make its money, with potential use cases across a breadth of verticals including the automotive, manufacturing and utilities industries to name a few. However, if service providers focus more on delivering 5G business use cases to small and midsized enterprises (SMEs), this market segment could prove to be a fruitful source of revenue. As 5G deployments continue to roll-out globally, CSPs are focused on deriving value from projects and partnerships with large multinational enterprises. And they are eager to do so quickly to assure payback from their $1trillion investments in the next generation network. However, are CSPs blinkered in their approach to generating ROI from 5G? Are they limiting themselves by focusing too much on a small segment of the enterprise market, that to date has limited CSPs' involvement in early 5G projects, reducing them to mere providers of connectivity?

Four reasons why NB-IoT is the enabler of mass IoT apps and tracking

Article | June 7, 2021

Everyone understands the need to track and trace and tracking was one of the first apps that kick-started the M2M industry at scale about two decades ago. It now encompasses everything from routine shipments to monitoring of high value equipment and has even further proved its worth in the pandemic, enabling tracking of essential shipments and cold chain logistics for vaccines. With narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) now rolling out across the world, the technology is powering tracking applications for the mass-market, bringing new capabilities and functions to tracking and opening up new markets and use cases. Four essential attributes of NB-IoT, in addition to the fundamental ability of throughput, were discussed in a recent Quectel webinar

Don’t worry, 5G is entirely safe say international radiation experts

Article | June 7, 2021

Yes, 5G is here and it’s making internet speeds faster and more reliable around the world. It’s also causing a few people to panic about radiation levels. And whether it causes the coronavirus, but that’s another story. Thankfully, the international regulator for radiation levels has given it the all-clear. The International Commission on Non‐Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is a Germany-based scientific body assessing health risks of radio broadcasts. It has called for new guidelines on 5G but says that the even the most high-frequency 5G waves are far below the threshold for anything that would cause us harm.
