Industry executives representing five of the leading wireless associations worldwide shared their knowledge at the first of the bi-annual Global 5G Events in Beijing on May 31 and June 1, 2016. Hosted by IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group in China with the theme of “Building the 5G Technology Ecosystem”, the conference was jointly organized by: The 5G Public Private Partnership (5G PPP, Europe), IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group (China), The Fifth Generation Mobile Communications Promotion Forum (5GMF, Japan), 5G Forum (Korea) and 5G Americas (Americas).
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced new collaborations with China Mobile on key 5G technologies. This includes channel measurement and modeling and massive MIMO over-the-air (OTA) testing. China Mobile is the world’s largest mobile network operator. This work is a continuation and strengthening of the 5G collaborations with China Mobile Communications Co. Ltd. Research Institute (CMRI) that began in 2014.
Tune into our webcast on May 18 for a preview of what to expect at TIA 2016 on the topic of 5G and the Mobile Future.
Join Mobile Future and TIA for this free webinar on May 18 discussing the power and promise of 5G. Industry experts, Jim Kohlenberger of JK Strategies and Jonathan Spalter of Mobile Future, will hold a fireside chat about the next generation of mobile technology, and how “5G”, as it is currently called, will spur innovation and help reimagine long-established industries.
‘Speed is just a question of money: how fast do you want to go?’ is an old hot-rodder’s saying. And it also applies to telcos and MNOs. They have invested heavily in their 4G and LTE networks, embracing virtualization to enable faster, more agile and scalable deployments that can keep pace with the explosion in subscriber data traffic and consumption, while keeping control of their overall CAPEX and OPEX costs. Even though these investments have already given us mobile connectivity of unprecedented speed and pervasiveness, they have only laid the foundation
Santa Clara, CA
Gigamon Inc., the leader in traffic visibility solutions, today announced new 100Gb product offerings and software updates to its portfolio that further extend the power of its market leading visibility solutions for high-performance enterprise networks, as well as 4G/5G LTE mobile operator infrastructure.
Santa Rosa, CA
Keysight Technologies, Inc. today announced successful verification of 1Gbps IP data throughput with the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, and the E7515A UXM wireless test set. This accomplishment brings support for LTE-A category 16 (Cat16) IP data throughput in a benchtop network emulator and was demonstrated live at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
With talk of a 5G mobile network slated to launch sometime in 2020, cellular carriers and consumers in the know are equally delighted: 5G will mean more than 10 times the current capacity of even the best 4G LTE. Still, with the announcement of this and other technological advancements, some are concerned about what the debut of new technology could mean for the cellular industry as we know it.
Given that 5G is still in its infancy, work also remains relative to channel modeling, radio architecture definition and chipset development before the first commercial systems will be deployed. However, there are certain trends and requirements already agreed upon and problems to be solved that will lead to final 5G systems. Let’s consider 5G access systems at microwave and millimeter wave frequencies. One of the major hurdles in implementing radio access at microwave frequencies is overcoming the unfavorable propagation characteristics.
Today, the Senate Commerce Committee voted to approve the MOBILE NOW Act (S. 2555) with amendments for consideration by the full Senate. This bill, introduced by Committee Chairman John Thune (R-S.D.) and Ranking Member Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), would increase the development of next-generation 5G wireless broadband by freeing up more spectrum for both commercial licensed and unlicensed use and improving broadband infrastructure deployment.
