Vehicles are currently undergoing a technical revolution spearheaded by IoT technologies. While there are already examples of cars that can park on their own and self-driving vehicles are emerging, this is not yet a reality accessible to all.
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.
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.
We are approaching the end of 2019 and the beginning of a new decade in which we are expecting amazing technological innovation capabilities. The last few years have seen repeated reports of trends, with much talk of 5G, cloud services, blockchain, edge computing, IoT, and so forth.
