Looking after a project from beginning to end is a challenging, yet fulfilling task. Whether this be a 30 day long project overseas with multiple teams or a single day job down the road for one guy. Not one project is ever the same. Never is there an exact replica mirroring previous projects, all are very unique in their own way. Complacency cannot be contemplated. You have the baton and it’s your turn to run with it! The planning stage is by far the most important stage of any project – when time is spent discussing and planning what is expected from the project. Coming together to discuss how these goals can realistically be achieved will ultimately increase the chances of the project becoming a success.

Nokia, Japan's KDDI Complete 5G Core Standalone (SA) Network Trial

Article | February 20, 2020

Nokia and Japan's KDDI have completed a 5G core standalone (SA) network trial, moving the operator closer to being able to provide 5G-enabled services. The standalone trial, using Nokia’s 5G AirGile cloud-native core solution, was conducted entirely independently of previous generations’ mobile network architecture. With a comprehensive 5G core portfolio, Nokia claims that it is well placed to assist KDDI in analyzing the network evolution steps and early deployment of 5G core Stand Alone services, like network slicing in which service providers virtually partition network capacity to subscribers based on customized use case needs.

How 4G and 5G networks are vulnerable to Denial-of-Service attacks

Article | March 26, 2020

Mobile operators are racing to upgrade their networks with 5G connectivity while at the same time expanding 4G LTE coverage throughout the world. Though the latest generations of cellular technology offer faster performance and other benefits over their predecessors, they're vulnerable to some of the same security flaws. A report released Thursday by Positive Technologies explains how and why existing 4G and new 5G networks can be hurt by Denial-of-Service (DOS) attacks in particular. For its report "Security Assessment of Diameter Networks 2020," Positive Technologies simulated external attacks against 28 telecom operators in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America during 2018 and 2019. Specifically, the company looked at 4G and 5G networks using Diameter signaling protocol, a method for coordinating data among different Internet Protocol (IP) network elements.

New nubia Red Magic 5G teaser shows off interesting "Slow Door Video" capture mode

Article | March 6, 2020

nubia and its CEO Ni Fei, in particular, have really been going the extra mile to hype-up the upcoming Red Magic 5G phone. Earlier teasersfocused on 5G connectivity, 144Hz display refresh rate, raw performance and active cooling, but now attention shifts a bit as we draw ever closer to the phone's March 12 announcement date. Clearly, Ni Fei wants fans to know that beyond a hardcore gaming experience, the Red Magic 5G will also deliver a capable camera. The latest teaser video shows off a cool feature called Slow Door Video, which we are guessing is a rather crude translation. Also crudely translated, the text of the post itself reads.

Five ways to win at antenna integration

Article | May 7, 2021

Antennas are fundamental to the performance of connected devices, but are often implemented as an afterthought, resulting not only in sub-optimal performance, but also in less-than-ideal form factor. It can also have a negative impact on cost for the device as a whole. It is therefore essential that organisations prioritise antenna design as part of a holistic device design philosophy – bear in mind that it is practically impossible to fix bad antenna design. Early decisions need to be made regarding the relative merits of embedded or external devices and then attention can turn to optimising antenna integration.
