Stepping Out: 5G Finds Its Stride in 2019

| April 8, 2019

Every past generation of cellular mobile communications has delivered lower latency and greater cost efficiency. It’s clear that this alone wasn’t going to be enough for 5G, yet for some time the industry wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. The primary reason was market confusion: Until standards were formalized at the end of 2017, any pilots or trials were basically just proprietary at best. Supporting this were results of a late 2017 Ericsson survey we released.

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.

Cisco Dreams of a 5G WAN

Article | March 10, 2020

Cisco envisions a future in which enterprise’s WANs are connected not by MPLS or broadband, but instead by high-speed, low-latency cellular networks, or what it calls the wireless WAN. Once relegated to failover, Cisco says today’s cellular networks, in particular 5G, offer high enough throughput and low enough latency to be viable alternatives to traditional wired networks. “About 10-years back everyone would say that my primary circuit from the enterprise branch was MPLS and then the higher bandwidth speed of having an internet circuit became a viable alternative,” said Shankar Ramachandran, director of product management, routing platform at Cisco, in an interview with SDxCentral.

4 ways 5G will change your enterprise threat model

Article | March 3, 2020

With 5G poised to become widely available across the globe, enterprise organizations need to seriously consider the security implications of deploying the technology. Over the next few years, 5G networks are expected to play a central role in enabling new digital transformation initiatives and in supporting new business use cases that are beyond the reach of current 4G-network technology. Driving much of that change will be 5G’s speeds of up to 1Gbps, its 1-millisecond latencies, and its support for up to about 100 times more connected devices per unit area compared to 4G.
