Nokia Optimizes 5G Network Operations

February 5, 2020 | 150 views

Nokia recently introduced the addition of Nokia Network Operations Manager to its Network operations that provide highly automated and modular tools to communication service providers (CSPs) for the operation of their 5G networks. Since 5G introduces new levels of complexity and difficulty, CSPs will need an adaptive control system to handle the rapidly increasing number of physical and virtual network activities that will put heavy workloads on network operations centers. Network Operations Master allows these processes to be automated and simplified with a software-driven approach, machine learning techniques, and customizable operations while ensuring that existing procedures are maintained.

Ericsson researchers top 4.3Gbps downlink on 5G millimeter wave

Article | August 23, 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 | October 7, 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.
