Looking ahead Towards the Anticipated Benefits of 5G

Key motivator of 5G is to meet the growing demand for high quality and high speed wireless connectivity across the globe beyond 2020

What is the big deal about 5G?  Why is everyone talking about it?  Why is so much money being spent on R&D to develop and marketing to capture the hearts and minds of the ICT industry?

As the Internet generation grows accustomed to having broadband access wherever they go and not just at home or in the office, the true promise of mobile broadband is becoming a reality.  Fifth Generation (5G) mobile/cellular networks the next major phase of mobile telecommunications standards beyond the upcoming 4G LTE standards. 

How will 5G and the Internet of Things play together?

Can 5G become an enabler and provide flexibile connectivity and core tools for IoT building blocks?

5G developments are well underway. In turn, definitions of spectrum, latency and bandwidth usage are continuously evolving to adapt to the next generation of mobile networks. However, while the technicalities involving 5G are promising, the ways in which 5G will impact our society is still very much a developing topic of discussion.

Mobile technology and targeted marketing barge in on holidays

Rising trend of beacons signals growing opportunity in Location Based Marketing

LONDON (Reuters) - Thumbing through guide books for restaurant and shopping tips while on holiday could soon be a thing of the past, thanks to mobile travel technology that knows where you are and what you like and can ping you personalized recommendations.

People are increasingly turning to their mobile phones to book flights, hotels and make other travel-related purchases, with $96 billion, or 12.5 percent of global online travel sales, made via the devices in 2014, according to a report by Euromonitor International.

What can SDN learn from a twenty-five year old Standard?

What did we learn from IN? And how will this help us foresee what lies in store for SDN?

The industry regards SDN as a simple but powerful concept that will reform data networking. But the idea behind SDN is not brand-new. Twenty-five years ago, telephone networks underwent a similar revolution called "intelligent networks" (IN). 

IN separated service control from circuit switching and enabled fast provisioning of well known services such as call forwarding, call waiting, three-way calling, reverse charging and number portability.  IN was at the top of its hype in the mid nineties and has been put to the test for decades. 

Understanding Location Based Services on Mobile WANs

Grasp the concepts of Brokering, Mediation, and Federation

Learn about LBS in the Mobile WANThis primer on Location Based Services (LBS) provides basic descriptions of building blocks for deploying location aware applications on mobile operators’ networks, perhaps most easily understood in today’s terms as Location as a Service (LaaS).

Wearable Technology in BYOD and Enterprise

New report highlights use cases, projects accelerated 5-Year CAGR

New report highlights use cases, projects accelerated 5-Year CAGR

Wearable Technology in BYOD and EnterpriseWearables expand the possibilities for how and when people interact with apps and data, which can lead to dramatic successes. But apps for enterprise wearables in many cases need sophisticated “hooks” to backend databases unnecessary in consumer wearables and will need to meet more demanding corporate security and reliability standards.

The IoT Showdown and the Opportunity for 4G LTE

Before billions of connections can be realized, there is the question of how the devices will connect

It has been estimated that there will be no less than 50 billion connected devices online by 2020. Before the promise of billions of connected devices sharing information can be realized, there is the question of how, exactly, most of these devices will be connected. Internet of Things (IoT) solution providers and those supplying them are keenly interested in the answer since it will help determine how those solutions and their components are architected. Will specialized networks be built, or will an existing technology, such as Wi-Fi, LAN, satellite or cellular, fill the void?

Key Areas of Focus for the Internet of Things (IoT)

Communications, Content, and Commerce via IoT will involve new technologies, services, and business models

Telecom Engine and its research partner, Mind Commerce, see a few key areas of focus for the Internet of Things (IoT) that will require special attention over the course of the next three years on the part of software, platform, and infrastructure providers. 

Key Success Factors for IoT in Manufacturing

Applying Big Data and analytics will be the basis of creating more and improved operations

Today, most advanced version of operating machines are using computer aided systems and controls. Today machines are programmed to perform in synch with each other on production line. The vision of the future is that such machines will communicate and work with each other and will be controlled using internet or wireless infrastructure i.e. IoT.
