WHAT DOES THE IDEAL 5G NETWORK LOOK LIKE?

December 7, 2018

5G holds the dual promise of unprecedented services and unparalleled user experience. 5G will not be just another G, because it will go beyond capacity as we know it and require networking, as we know it, to change. 4G’s main service was mobile broadband, hence the focus on the capacity and connectivity offered by the radio access network (RAN). The transport network provided MBH (mobile backhaul) as “dumb, nailed-up, capacity pipes”, which linked the RAN to the services and applications in the core of the network. In general, the architecture of choice for 4G MBH was a physical ring supporting logical hub-and-spoke connectivity.

THE INTERNET THINGS BUSINESS INDEX A quiet revolution gathers pace

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The quiet revolution is taking shape. Businesses across the world are piloting the use of the IoT to improve their internal operations and are preparing a stream of IoT-related products and services. Consumers might not recognise them as such,but that will not stop them from being launched, as few end users need to know that user-based car insurance, for example, is an IoT-based application.Yet some important unknowns remain. Nobody knows what the winning business models are going to be. Even seasoned management consultants will struggle to provide definitive answers. It is a matter of experimenting with different models to see which ones work. The main message for latecomers and doubters is to consider the opportunities offered by the IoT—if nothing else for improving internal operations: the vast majority of survey respondents agree that companies that are slow to integrate the IoT risk falling behind the competition.
