5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Another O-RAN Takes-off!

Now it is Vodafone’s turn up its first O-RAN site!

OpenRan (O-RAN) is a new way to design, built, deliver, and operate LTE infrastructure networks.  Today the LTE infrastructures installed that we are all using, regardless of the service provider, are made of standard base main components, and most often service providers will side with one or perhaps two radio suppliers. However, some service providers elected to build their LTE network by using Vendor-A EPC (Evolved Packet Core) {the main brain managing connections}, Vendor-B RAN (Radio Access Network) [the radio units on the tower] and their infrastructure deliver the same services.

Edge computing and AI: 7 things to know

A good read from Stephanie Overby at The Entrepriseres Project

How do edge computing and artificial intelligence (AI) work together? Why does edge fit well with AI? What are some use cases? Let’s examine what IT leaders should know

edge computing trends 2020

For decades,  artificial intelligence (AI) lived in data centers, where there was sufficient compute power to perform processor-demanding cognitive tasks. In time, AI made its way into software, where predictive algorithms changed the nature of how these systems support the business. Now AI has moved to the outer edges of networks.

5G Vs 4G Radiation Safety

This is a good article from E&T editorial staff. It was published Monday, July 13, 2020. I though I would share!

A new IET report has confirmed that 5G is very similar to existing mobile technologies in terms of radio wave exposure and pulsed signals, and will be held to the same safety standards as 4G, 3G, and the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM).

Microsoft’s One-Two 5G Telco Punch

Very good article from Moor. The wireless carrier or MNO space is changing. And, with the Open Ran movement there is certainly indications of changes ahead! The big boys are taking hits!

Adapting Mobile Devices to Private LTE/CBRS Networks

The potential for many new dedicated secure and private LTE/CBRS networks is on the rise. An important question is: how will commercially available mobile devices connect on these networks?

Three elements are needed for a private LTE network:
