In my article “Are You Ready for 5G?”, I explore how the fifth generation of mobile/wireless architecture comes with tall promises of transforming the world with its advances in greater global cellular network speed, scalability and security. In our prediction on where the 5G journey will take us, I’ll discuss how businesses can pave a path to make the most out of its amazing advances in high-speed networking.

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.

The next phase of Tableau Partner Network helps customers accelerate data transformation

Article | March 2, 2020

The next phase of our newly redesigned Tableau Partner Network is officially here. Originally announced during the Global Partner Summit at Tableau Conference 2019, and launched in September 2020, we built the Tableau Partner Network (TPN) to enable our global ecosystem to meet evolving customer needs and deliver exceptional customer experiences. The Tableau Partner Network is an analytics-focused ecosystem that complements Salesforce’s partner ecosystem. With this latest phase, we’ve unlocked new partner branding to showcase our partners’ commitment and expertise. Customers now have a more transparent view of the commitment and quality level of Tableau’s partners by business model track (Reseller, Services, and Technology) and performance level (Premier, Select, and Member), as well as by country groupings versus a single global qualification. These changes make it easier for customers to find and confidently work with the right Tableau partner, knowing they meet Tableau’s standards and are local if desired.

5G judged safe by scientists but faces tougher radiation rules

Article | March 2, 2020

But the standards body behind the new rules says there is no evidence that mobile networks cause cancer or other illnesses. It has spent several years reviewing scientific literature on the effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields. It says the new guidelines will provide improved protection for forthcoming 5G technologies that use high frequencies. It is the first time since 1998 that the guidelines on protecting humans from radiation from phone networks, wi-fi and Bluetooth have been updated.

Making Sense of the 5G Spectrum Mess

Article | March 2, 2020

Spectrum has been the lifeblood of the wireless industry since its inception. Without it, mobile connectivity simply doesn’t exist. That remains true as ever in a 5G world, but 5G also dramatically changes the breadth and depth of spectrum that is required to power lower latency, higher bandwidth, and more connections per cell site. The spectrum held by most operators today is not enough to deliver all of these key features of 5G, and early 5G customers have experienced these limitations first hand. Operators will need hundreds of megahertz of clean spectrum to provide 5G networks sporting the oft-promised multi-gigabit speeds. Network operators will, in most cases, need a healthy mix of low-, mid-, and high-band spectrum to fulfill that promise. None of America’s mobile network operators have the right ingredients to mix a genuine 5G cocktail today.
