What is the difference between network slicing and Quality of Service?

How polar codes work

How polar codes work

Polar codes break the wheel somewhat in the field of channel coding with an unorthodox approach that resembles some of the operations more conventionally seen in the standard communication chains between the baseband and radio front...

The 5G New Radio: 3GPP standards progress

The 5G New Radio: 3GPP standards progress

An examination of the 5G New Radio – will this new radio really be a true paradigm shift away from 4G or simply more of an overhaul and a refresh for a new generation?

The 5G core network: 3GPP standards progress

The 5G core network: 3GPP standards progress

An examination of the future of the core network as we move towards 5G.

Challenges in realizing the promises of the holistic edge

Challenges in realizing the promises of the holistic edge

One thing that appears certain is that the holistic edge will manifest as a somewhat diverse beast that will present far-reaching challenges for innovators well beyond the relatively simple solutions of today.

Enabling the multiverse of mini-internets

Enabling the multiverse of mini-internets

In order for the Device Virtualization vision to be realized, Alan Carlton explains how the edge will need to transform into a different type of mini-internet that behaves just a little differently than the wider internet

HTTP and DNS in a 5G World

HTTP and DNS in a 5G World

HTTP and DNS are almost established as household name protocols having been around since the earliest days of the World Wide Web but, like everything else in 5G, some changes are coming.

The future is not the cloud or the fog: it is actually the SEA!

The future is not the cloud or the fog: it is actually the SEA!

5G is in the works and one of its primary goals is actually to deliver a ubiquitous, ultra-reliable, low latency and high data rate system. 5G will very likely be a key enabler for device virtualization.

Real world challenges between us and the Internet of Things

Real world challenges between us and the Internet of Things

Alan Carlton examines the real world challenges between our today and the many promises of the Internet of Things (IoT) tomorrow; specifically in the Smart City space.

Big Data will enable better network and application intelligence in 5G

Big Data will enable better network and application intelligence in 5G

5G requirements clearly call out the need to support the IoT and the Big Data it produces. This article explores Big Data, how it can improve network and application intelligence, and how it will all work in 5G.

5G reality check: Where is 3GPP on standardization?

5G reality check: Where is 3GPP on standardization?

Good progress is being made in the key standardization efforts around 5G, but there is still a long way to go with Phase 1 standardization.

Surprise! Polar codes are coming in from the cold

Surprise! Polar codes are coming in from the cold

Polar codes appear to have been accepted into a certain role in 5G, driven perhaps more by political forces than immediate differentiation.
