Intelligence Brief: How is 5G changing network ownership?

Article | February 12, 2020

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.

Reducing mobility interruption time in 5G networks

Article | April 2, 2020

The next steps for 3GPP, release 16 and 17, will introduce additional features to further enhance the support for new use cases related to smart manufacturing, connected vehicles, electrical power distribution and more, such as drones which are controlled by the network. All of these potentially critical use cases require ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) which means high reliability and availability, as well as very low end-to-end latency in the range of a few milliseconds. The 5G system is designed with this in mind, and the continued evolution of 5G New Radio (NR) will continue to optimize mobility performance further. A critical part of this is to reduce the handover interruption time between cells in the 5G network.

Poor Power Supply, Inadequate Fibre Cables May Hinder 5G Network – NCC

Article | March 2, 2020

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), has said that the current level of power situation in the country as well as the inadequate fibre cables may impact negatively on the commercialisation of the fifth generation network, 5G These are the key challenges identified by experts from the commission at the Social Media Week, Lagos (SMWL) on Thursday, during the NCC session themed: Fifth Network Deployment: Social Economic Benefits and Challenges. The experts from the commission agreed that the power infrastructure gaps that currently exist in the country does not encourage that level of technology and prays things improve before telecom operators in Nigeria are ready for massive rollout of the business.

5G’s promise: A new heartbeat for healthcare

Article | March 8, 2020

Picture this: An ambulance rushes a seriously injured patient to the hospital. In the back, the paramedic makes a video call with doctors while sending them real-time vital signs and images of the injury. It doesn’t look good. The paramedic pulls out what looks like an oversized ski glove connected to wires and grabs an ultrasound wand that a sonographer in an office somewhere virtually steers over the patient’s injury. The sonographer then reviews the images for signs of trouble.
