Subscribe 5G & Mobile Network Infrastructure

Mobile Network Infrastructure delivers end-to-end coverage of the infrastructure with a strong emphasis on access networks and enabling technologies, as well as the data traffic flowing across these networks. Our coverage includes radio access topologies from antennas, base stations, and access points to supporting front-haul, back-haul technologies. We pay special focus to innovative technology deployments for indoor and outdoor networks operating under both licensed and unlicensed spectrums, including MIMO, massive MIMO and beamforming, distributed antenna systems, carrier aggregation, new waveforms, and new modulation schemes.

5G New Radio

This report explores 5G network technology along with its features, the vendor ecosystem, and overall market trends. The first set of 5G standards ratified by 3GPP in December 2017, also known as the Early Drop, has created a practical timeline and expectations for the launch of first 5G networks. While 5G use cases promise unprecedented potential in terms of speed, latency, reliability, and coverage, 5G NR itself builds on LTE design principles and incorporates new features to allow for scalability and flexibility. This report provides an overview of the main aspects of the Early Drop specifications, deployment considerations for the first 5G networks, and key 5G NR features.

5G for Consumer and Industrial Applications

5G discussions are currently focused on creating a faster network, but the revolution will happen with 5G will allow mobile service providers to address industrial applications. Despite the wide agreement that this will likely introduce a wave of new business opportunities, mobile service providers don’t yet understand the technologies, operational models and culture that 5G will require. They are now trying to understand what end markets need and test new business models, which will mature by the time 5G is fully deployed.

This webinar will present current 5G market activities, and what key mobile service providers are planning to do in the initial stages of commercial deployments, mostly focusing on consumer applications and enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB). The webinar will then discuss industrial applications, where the market landscape is very different: connectivity is just a tiny element of industrial technology systems. Operators need to move away from connectivity-centric industrial strategies, otherwise they will find it hard to convince industrial implementers of the value proposition of their products and services.

This webinar will address the following questions:

  • What are the most recent developments in the 5G market landscape?
  • What aspects of 5G will be deployed in the next 5 years?
  • What industrial applications are possible with 4G and other technologies today? What is not?
  • How can MSPs prepare for industrial telecoms?
  • Which market will lead 5G industrial applications?
