5G cellular networks have become far more popular thanks to the new uses they can provide to public services and industrial segments. The current technological context is key for the implementation of 5G architecture, based on SDN / SD-WAN – Software Defined Network, NFV – Network Function Virtualization or MEC – Multi-Access Edge Computing technologies.
I have lost count of how many trillions $ 5G can generate in the next years. It all depends on the time scale as well as the market segment you are in, whether being hardware, or software, or services, or the entire ecosystem taken from its many different and multiple angles.
The current Covid-19 crisis has some of you wondering if it is the result of a biological weapon from a shady military lab. The answer is a simple no! As the scientific community so rightly states, nature is enough and more than enough to make new viruses like this all by itself.
A fundamental feature of wireless (duplex) bidirectional communication systems is the way to separate the transmitted and received signals. We almost always find that the standard either establishes alternating them in time intervals, with the device quickly switching between transmission and reception, or transmitting them in different frequency bands and separating them by means of radiofrequency filters.
In my previous blog post last week on 5G, we saw how Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is considered a cornerstone use case for 5G and a new source of revenue stream for both MNOs and CPEs manufacturers.
