FUTURE-PROOFING 5G ARCHITECTURE WITH OPEN-RAN

Article | May 19, 2021

The RAN (Radio Access Network) architecture for mobile networks includes a remote radio unit (RRU) located at the top of a cell tower, which communicates with a baseband unit (BBU) at the base of the tower. The hardware and communication interfaces are owned by a specific vendor, and its software-driven functionality is tightly coupled within the hardware. Traditionally, this has worked well for mobile network operators (MNOs). However, there are several drawbacks to consider – for instance, upgrading or changing the wireless network demands physical hardware replacements throughout the network, which is cost-inefficient, labor-intensive, and time-consuming. Furthermore, the equipment and interfaces that connect the hardware are owned by the vendors that originally supplied them, which locks MNOs into existing relationships with them.

Cisco issues urgent fixes for SD-WAN router flaws

Article | March 23, 2020

Cisco has patched a clutch of high-priority vulnerabilities in its SD-WAN routers and their management software that admins will want to apply as soon as possible. SD-WAN is a technology that allows large companies to manage different types of Wide Area Network (WAN) communications links such as carrier MPLS, conventional broadband, and mobile 4G as a single virtual entity. Making SD-WAN work requires specific routers that support it, spread out across the WAN, as well as management software to interact with this infrastructure. It is this software that is vulnerable. There are five CVEs in total, three of which are rated high, including one, CVE-2020-3266, given a CVSS severity score of 7.8. The latter is a privilege escalation vulnerability in the SD-WAN management software used with a range of Cisco routers, including the vEdge 100 Series, 1000 Series, 2000 Series, 5000 Series, and Cloud Router.

The role of BSS in the journey to 5G monetization

Article | March 23, 2020

The rollout of commercial 5G services is well underway. This evolution is unlocking exciting new opportunities, but it also presents new challenges. To capture new 5G revenue streams, service providers must transform their existing business support systems (BSS), and develop clear roadmaps to guide this transformation. In the latest MIT Insights report, telecom executives share their vision for 5G-enabled BSS, and how they are preparing for it. Here, we explore some of the highlights.

A SMART FUTURE: HOW 5G AND SMART DEVICES WILL CHANGE THE WORLD

Article | March 2, 2020

When one thinks of 5G, they think of cellphones and how communication will improve with faster internet. It will do so for sure, but that’s a very limited way of thinking about this great technological feat. What 5G will inexplicably revolutionize is the way we interact with machines and how integrated they become with our lives. Combined with AI, and smart devices we’re looking at a whole new way of life. So, let us look at what it all means for the future. Before we move further, we must look at what 5G is and how it is different from 4G. First off, this new technology comes with OFDM encoding which is part of an air interface design especially modeled to be flexible such that it meets the needs of other tech pieces with different bandwidths as well as scale for future applications. Compared to 4G, it will be able to operate on larger channels and that too, with lower latency. This means more people can work online at the same time easily with low lag times.
