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.

5G Standalone: What's So Exciting About It?

Article | February 11, 2020

The much-anticipated 5G Standalone has arrived. T-Mobile is the first to launch it in the USA, covering 250 million people across 7,500 cities and towns, including rural areas. China Mobile is the only other service provider to launch it in Hong Kong. Overall, 58 operators are currently investing (November 2020) in 5G SA, including those who have launched. 5G SA makes a break from 5G non-standalone by integrating the evolved packet core or the signaling brain of the 5G network, which controls the network's devices. It prepares the groundwork for new services unique to this generation of networks, such as network slicing to customize enterprise services across multiple networks.

How 5G can build the connected industry of the future

Article | February 11, 2020

Despite a global pandemic and the associated economic challenges, the world has moved to 5G four times faster than it did with 4G LTE, according to 5G Americas. In the midst of this rollout, how can industries ensure that the benefits of 5G investment warrant the long-term investment costs? Or to put it another way, how can industries leverage 5G technology to build cost-efficient connected industry on a global scale? The answer is the intelligent edge. The intelligent edge is the analysis of data and development of solutions at the site where the data is generated. By doing this, the intelligent edge reduces latency, costs and security risks, thus making the associated business more efficient. As 5G puts compute closer to the user (whether that be a human or a device) it enables a new paradigm of capabilities with AI, machine learning and a host of related use cases.
