5G, LTE, Recorded Webinar -

Recorded: 12th April 2022 This webinar aims to clarify why there is a requirement for interconnecting legacy LMR technologies with 4G/5G systems, and explain the steps taken by 3GPP and the relevant LMR Standards Authorities to facilitate interworking.  It will also highlight some of the challenges associated with interconnecting networks possessing operational and functional requirements, and service limitations, that are so different. Topics include: Interconnecting Networks 3GPP Interworking Function (IWF) Interfaces Functions to be Supported via IWF LTE to ETSI TETRA Interworking Interworking Security LTE to ATIS/TIA P25 and Analogue FM Interworking P25 Inter-RF Subsystem Interface LTE to GSM-R Interworking Other...

Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC or sometimes MAEC), formerly Mobile Edge Computing, is a network architecture that enables cloud computing capability at the edge of the network. Originally proposed as capabilities provided at the edge of a cellular network, it has been extended to be the edge of any network. In fact the original proposal states that capabilities are provided within the RAN.The basic idea behind MEC is that by running applications and processing tasks closer to the subscriber or user, certain applications run better – those with low latency or high bandwidth, for example – and network congestion can be...

Background 5G is set to change the picture significantly in terms of spectrum allocation and use, and in this article, we aim to provide more clarity in terms of the many issues related to the licensing, standardisation / harmonisation, and use of spectrum as we head towards the 5G era. Spectrum is highly sought after, primarily because it allows an operator to increase capacity on the network efficiently. The additional spectrum can be added to existing base stations which reduces the number of new base stations needed. This makes spectrum highly valuable, hence regulators will charge a fee for licensed...

5G, Recorded Webinar -

Recorded: 28th February 2022 The 5G standards support many different use cases and deployment scenarios using a wide range of techniques and design principles. In turn, these support diverse network capabilities and performance centred on attributes such as data rates, capacity, latency, energy use, user density, reliability, and security. In order to map these capabilities to the use cases in a way that maximises overall efficiency and cost effectiveness, the concept of the “Network Slice” has been introduced. It allows for a range of “capability sets” or “virtual networks” (supporting different use cases, deployment scenarios, or even different customers) to...
