Four USC Annenberg students spent two weeks in New York as part of the 2017 Maymester program. They talk about what that trip meant to them, what they are taking away from their time at USC Annenberg -- and the jobs they have all secured after graduation. The students included: Nicholas Alfano (BA, journalism ’19), Andie Wright (BA, public relations ’19, Matthew Simon (BA, communication and political science ’19) and Jacqueline Baltz (BA, journalism ’19).

Making Sense of the 5G Spectrum Mess

Article | March 25, 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.

What's New In 5G - June 2021

Article | June 7, 2021

The next-generation of wireless technologies – known as 5G – is here. Not only is it expected to offer network speeds that are up to 100 times faster than 4G LTE and reduce latency to nearly zero, it will allow networks to handle 100 times the number of connected devices, revolutionizing business and consumer connectivity and enabling the “Internet of Things.” Leading policymakers – federal regulators and legislators – are making it a top priority to ensure that the wireless industry has the tools it needs to maintain U.S. leadership in commercial 5G deployments. This blog provides monthly updates on FCC actions and Congressional efforts to win the race to 5G.

How to keep 5G data secure with software probes

Article | March 17, 2020

Enhanced security and privacy are cornerstones of 5G Core, but service providers still need to be able to capture quality, actionable data to secure the end-customer experience. Specifically, I’m referring to the data needed to perform troubleshooting, monitoring, customer care and analytics for marketing campaigns. But can this be done in 5G Core using traditional probing methods, without breaching security? The 3GPP standardization for 5G considers enhanced security to be an essential network component. Imagine, for a moment, that we live in a world where it’s common for open heart surgery to be conducted remotely, and I’m sure you’ll agree. The need for a secure, reliable network has resulted in the introduction of a new Service Based Architecture (SBA) that utilizes encrypted interfaces between network functions (NFs). Traffic between network functions is deployed in a cloud native 5G Core Kubernetes node and will not be visible outside the cluster, meaning traditional probing solutions are unsustainable.

HOW 5G WILL DRIVE CLOUD COMPUTING TO THE NEXT LEVEL?

Article | February 13, 2020

The world is now leading towards fifth-generation (5G) network connection, which is set to revolutionize the network and communications industry by providing ultra-fast transmission rates. This can be as much as 100 times faster than the existing 4G or previous networks. Undeniably, today we are generating a massive amount of data and to process effectively, there is a need to leverage a big data set that can make these data actionable. This is where Cloud Computing comes in, delivering a large data storage option to businesses. However, this large storage service needs faster connectivity as the amount of data is continuously growing.
