Anatomy of a 5G smart city

Anatomy of a 5G smart city
As smart city technologies begin to emerge in volume, their network requirements will have to cope with 5G workloads, and will need to do that in a 5G way. This month Rethink Internet of Things (Riot) takes an in-depth look at a smart city approach which is built around the municipality’s own fibre, Software Defined Networks and cloud analytics software – a system which will survive the transition into a 5G world, as it searches for a formula to monetise next-gen citizen services.

Fixed wireless deployed by AeroNet survives two hurricanes

Fixed wireless deployed by AeroNet survives two hurricanes
To deliver business broadband in Old San Juan before two back-to-back hurricanes devastated the island, one of Puerto Rico's service providers, AeroNet was using Siklu's MultiHaul, a point-to-multipoint 60GHz radio. The storms wiped out much of the fibre and wireless infrastructure, but the MultiHaul survived both storms intact. With no fibre available and a long expected time for redeployment, residents turned to AeroNet's wireless solutions.

End-to-End 5G NR interoperable system based on 3GPP standard

End-to-End 5G NR interoperable system based on 3GPP standard
Qualcomm Technologies (a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated), ZTE, and China Mobile have announced that they have successfully achieved the world’s first end-to-end 5G NR Interoperability Data Testing (IoDT) system demonstrating a data connection based on 3GPP R15 standard. Following the guidelines of China Mobile, the IoDT connection demonstration took place at China Mobile’s 5G Joint Innovation Centre, and utilised ZTE’s 5G NR pre-commercial base station and Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G NR sub-6 GHz UE prototype.

The need for broadband in rural areas need to be addressed

The need for broadband in rural areas need to be addressed
GlobalData believe that UK residents and businesses located in rural areas should push for improved access to ultrafast broadband (with connectivity at 300 Mbps and above) and 5G services. One of the primary inhibitors to economic growth in the UK is the shortage of internet access services and lack of ultrafast broadband. It is also increasingly harder for consumers and businesses in rural areas to keep up with their urban neighbours.

There could be one billion 5G subscriptions by 2023

There could be one billion 5G subscriptions by 2023
By 2023, Ericsson forecasts there will be one billion 5G subscriptions for enhanced mobile broadband. This prediction is among the key statistics presented in the November edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report. Expected to be deployed first in dense urban areas, 5G will cover over 20% of the world’s population by the end of 2023. The first commercial networks based on 5G New Radio (NR) are expected to go live in 2019, with major deployments from 2020.

Who has the best IP position to face the 4G to 5G transition?

Who has the best IP position to face the 4G to 5G transition?
  Since 2000 and the development of smartphones, the number of frequency bands used in mobile telecommunication has undergone a huge increase from four bands in the 2000s to more than 30 bands today. To manage this growth, also pushed by the upcoming 5G, RF modules have been widely developed.

Don't get it twisted

Don't get it twisted
The UK government has invested £16 million in 5G network development. Here, Dervish Ibrahim, international sales manager at wire payoff machine supplier, TM Robotics, explains how the success of this, and investments in high speed broadband and smart city connectivity, are very much dependant on the quality of manufacturing processes for high speed internet cables. 5G will go beyond enhancing our own smartphone usage. It will enable the smart city, enhancing the cities we live and work in.
