Open radio access networks offer advantages in locating network functions of proprietary RANs. Automation and orchestration let telecom networks do what computing networks have done for years.
Spirent’s Landslide 5G Core (5GC) Automation Package contains test cases that network engineers can use to develop functional and performance tests, among others. Core networks perform many functions in cellular networks such as authenticating users, providing subscribed services, security, and connecting users to requested applications. 3GPP defines standards for how these 5G network functions communicate.…
Spectrum Multiplier software from Cohere Technologies uses Delay-Doppler effects to predict how a wireless channel will change in real time, letting base stations control MU-MIMO beams.
The Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) family of IEEE 802.1 network standards bring reliability and low latency to applications over Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and 5G.
When complete, Altran’s 5G test lab will emulate all parts of a network, letting hardware engineers, network engineers, and software developers test products at any point in the 5G network. 5G Technology World interviewed Altran’s Shamik Mishra, CTO Connectivity, about the lab.
A toolkit lets integrated operators run their mobile and fixed-line operations on a common 5G core.
The Open RAN Coalition’s roadmap provides guidance for governments trying to navigate through 5G by promoting cooperation, providing financial incentives, and implementing policy.
The IX10 from Digi International lets you perform industrial monitoring, control, and configuration of equipment through cellular networks.
Despite the intense hype, 5G looks like a stepping stone to the real thing.
In a video interview, Analog Devices’ Nitin Sharma explains the company’s involvement with open RAN and the concept of a functional split. Open radio access networks are all the talk at the network — as opposed to the wireless — side of 5G. While most of the talk surrounds the disaggregation of network functions, the…
