For Network Admins, it’s sort of like waiting for your favorite blockbuster to hit the local cinema. You’ve read a few spoilers, you’ve watched all of the previews, now you’re pumped for the movie. Only the movie hasn’t been released. As Tom Petty once sang, “The waiting is the hardest part.”At Cisco, we have our ears to the ground and expect first 802.11ax devices to become available prior to standard ratification by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). The IEEE is the standards body that defines what the new 802.11ax standard is and what are the different features introduced by 802.11ax.

Communications related vendor contracts start to pick up

Article | July 28, 2021

Publicly available announcements on all telecom contracts started to see a slowdown in 2nd quarter of 2019 and dipped in the 2nd quarter of 2020. We believe there might be several factors that could lead to the slowdown in 2019. In transport networking, operators are assessing new deployment models that include virtualization and disaggregated platform and in wireless segment, 4G rollout has reached maturity and started to see decline while 5G rollouts have just started and at an early phase of evaluation. And obviously at the end of 2019, we are seeing a more distinct slowdown likely from the impact of COVID-19 on global business deals. CSP has been more cautious with spending due to the challenges and uncertainties from the pandemic. However, dynamics related to COVID-19 have on the other hand accelerated bandwidth consumptions and subsequently driven investments across all segments of the network as we start to see recovery in the number of contracts announcement in the recent few quarters.

How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | July 28, 2021

The current global pandemic is drastically impacting our daily lives, and as a result, the relevance of such digital applications and services is accelerating. For example, we suddenly see an increased need for communication services, tools for remote collaboration, and fast and reliable access to data – whether it’s from the office, the home or somewhere in between. Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) are two technology concepts providing significant benefits in this new digital reality. These technologies open new ways of working in areas such as manufacturing, gaming, media, automotive and healthcare, allowing for both increased productivity and completely new user experiences. In the Ericsson ConsumerLab merged reality report, 7 out of 10 early adopters expect VR and AR to change everyday life fundamentally.

Operator personal cloud: Engage subscribers with a content hub

Article | July 28, 2021

While many 5G use cases have centered on enterprise opportunities that leverage the speed, responsiveness and capacity of this advanced wireless technology, telecom operators must be careful to not brush off the desires of individual subscribers. They, too, are looking to make the most of their 5G data plans and investments in 5G-enabled mobile devices. Unfortunately for many subscribers, the technology has not yet lived up to its promise. A recent consumer study from Ericsson shows that 70% of smartphone users are disappointed in the availability of new 5G-powered services and apps. The same study also found that subscribers are willing to pay 20-30% more for a premium 5G plan bundled with digital service use cases. Taken together, these two data points indicate that the time has come for operators to develop a 5G strategy focused on increasing value-added services for the subscriber. Operators who want to remain competitive as well as recoup their infrastructure investments must think beyond simply providing enhanced connectivity. Today's consumers are savvy, use multiple connected devices and are short on time. And they expect a lot more from their digital service providers.
