I admit that being an IPv6 advocate for as long as I have been can cause some self-doubt and loathing at times. IPv6 has had a longer ramp-up than expected and us IPv6 advocates have often been frustrated by the pace of adoption.  The good news for me was that 2016 was a really great year for IPv6. You can check out my end of year prediction reviews and see just how much really did change for IPv6 overall.

A SMART FUTURE: HOW 5G AND SMART DEVICES WILL CHANGE THE WORLD

Article | March 2, 2020

When one thinks of 5G, they think of cellphones and how communication will improve with faster internet. It will do so for sure, but that’s a very limited way of thinking about this great technological feat. What 5G will inexplicably revolutionize is the way we interact with machines and how integrated they become with our lives. Combined with AI, and smart devices we’re looking at a whole new way of life. So, let us look at what it all means for the future. Before we move further, we must look at what 5G is and how it is different from 4G. First off, this new technology comes with OFDM encoding which is part of an air interface design especially modeled to be flexible such that it meets the needs of other tech pieces with different bandwidths as well as scale for future applications. Compared to 4G, it will be able to operate on larger channels and that too, with lower latency. This means more people can work online at the same time easily with low lag times.

The FCC C-Band Auction and the Future of 5G

Article | February 11, 2020

5G and its potential applications are an exciting technology for a number of reasons, and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently announced an auction for wireless spectrum that could speed the deployment of this technology. A faster auction will allow for the benefits of faster connectivity to reach consumers more quickly. 5G is exciting not just for its potential to provide faster service and more connectivity on wireless networks, but also as the potential backbone for many emerging connected technologies such as various smart home devices and autonomous vehicles. Already consumers can see benefits of this new technology, such as improving safety and connectivity at the Super Bowl, and wireless companies such as AT&T and Verizon are planning to offer 5G nationwide by the end of year.
