5G: The hottest topic in wireless

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Oct 4, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  As we prod ahead pushing years behind us and as our world makes leaps and bounds into an era of uber-advanced technology and relevant tools, certain trends have also emerged which define this shiny new generation of tech. Be it artificial intelligence, big data, virtual reality or anything else that may sound even fancier in the days to come. However, the one innovation that links everything together, literally and figuratively, is unquestionably the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart, omnipresent connectivity that is reliable and accessible at any time and place through any device is something that all of us have come to expect from our networks. Read More

Three considerations in DAS Integration

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jul 5, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Technology has ever been evolving over the past 20 years and it has become more and more sophisticated.  It has become a crucial part of cellular networks and enterprise infrastructures. The DAS can be incorporated in the existing system or it can be installed separately. Both approaches work fine, but selecting the right choice by taking the integration issues into consideration is a crucial step. Such integration issues can be categorized in three broad terms; Regulatory Issues, Technical and Economic Issues, and Jurisdictional Issues. Read More

Small Cells: A critical element in the mobile systems

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Apr 26, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Under the strains from more clients, more gadgets, and more applications, mobile networks have increasingly needed to transport higher traffic loads. This has been putting ample stress on the present framework and disappointing endorsers when they can't utilize the services they have paid for. The increase in rush hour gridlock load will not only augment over the coming years, but it is also significantly changing how mobile operators plan, send and operate mobile systems, and charge for access. Small cells and Wi-Fi add capacity to mobile systems in ways that are analogous, and in adequately unique ways that it isn't fair to substitute one for other over the portable impression. The public isn’t ready to surrender Wi-Fi access within a reasonable time-frame - it’s become a very mainstream ‘necessity’. And just cell systems cannot singularly give the scope and portability bolster that users expect. Read More

DAS: Are they really needed and do they cost you an arm and a leg?

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Apr 12, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  DAS, a system that boosts the cellular signal reception and coverage, has become a must-have in the commercial space. While some may still view it as a layer that simply adds costs and complexity to a real estate project, DAS can be a significant value-add to any property. Then there’s another shade: the Public Safety DAS. There are requirements mandated by FCC for buildings to have emergency responder radio coverage system.  Its systems and signal boosters provide first responders and public safety professionals with stable and reliable radio coverage in buildings and other structures. Any building owner would always want to be assured of the safety of its tenants and occupants. However, in case of any emergency, it is critical for the first responders to be able to communicate clearly in all areas of buildings and facilities in their jurisdiction. Read More

The Nationalization of 5G Network

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Mar 8, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  If you’ve been abreast of the whole 5G hype, you’d know that the proposal of a nationalized 5G wireless network has stimulated  lot of controversy, forming a wave of reaction across most agencies and the political spectrum. This could be because 5G network is becoming such a haloed technology in the industry with a lot of hopes  and expectations of it. For starters, 5G or fifth generation network is the next G of mobility which would use high frequency airwaves in distributing wireless data, and could allow ridiculously faster speeds of up to 20Gbps in comparison to the current 4G network that has a maximum bandwidth of 1Gbps. It will also very likely be the amped up backbone to the Internet of Things (IoT) and all that IoT realm will bring to the table. Not only would it offer faster speeds and greater capacity than previous generations, but also accommodate newer, more evolved and advanced technologies, such as self-driving cars, virtual reality, Artificial Intelligence, and of course, the Internet of Things.  So, where is 5G on the map? Well, network carriers, such as AT&T and Verizon, have plans to roll out 5G service in limited markets this year. Read More

Looking back at 2017 in U.S. Telecom

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Feb 15, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  We are well into the second month in a brand new year and I have started to fervently check off new year’s list of things to accomplish; so far I think I’m doing a decent job. Now, what I also want to look back and review from last year is the tech-trend. Having always been amazed by how technology evolves and advances every passing day ( especially so in the wireless macrocosm), I wanted to check back on what technology promised us last year and look back on which ones actually made it to reality!

The call drops we all dread about

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Feb 1, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Amidst the intense debates over Net Neutrality, the long-prevalent problem of call drops in mobile networks is still a new burning subject for many people. Whether you’re taking or making a call, if it is interrupted before either party decides to end the call, it is known as the infamous call drop. The real culprit for the dropped calls may either be in the Macro or the Micro network, or both, but without the shadow of a doubt, it affects directly on the network quality perception of the carrier, and the build quality perception of the building. Not only are they annoying and frustrating, calls drops are also more worrying than blocked calls as they don’t get in the queue to re-establish a connection. The drop call rates are often used as one of the essential figures of merit to measure the quality of service in the mobile wireless networks. Read More

Enterprise-grade Wi-Fi puts your efficiency in the spotlight

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jan 25, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Let’s get this one straight. If you need to cross the Atlantic pond and get to the other end, you can’t do it in a single-engine aircraft. Those are best suited for recreational and private use. Similarly, if you own an organization but attempt to run it on a residential grade Wi-Fi, you’re bound to experience similar things as you would at home - low on energy, low on productivity, and high on distractions.

What's new in the Public Safety Connectivity realm?

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jan 11, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Dropped calls and feeble data connections are modern day nuisances, but for public safety officers, it could very well be a matter of life and death. Every mobile connection, conversation, and video transmission counts when public safety is at stake. For this reason, the providers of dedicated public safety wireless communication networks aim to build a private system for public safety communications through full build-outs. Twenty-nine states have decided to opt-in to FirstNet and AT&T build-out plans that are to be submitted to each state. Read More

2018 will be the year of technology

Posted by Aakriti Pandey on Jan 4, 2018 11:00:00 AM
  Happy New Year and welcome to a shiny new 2018! It was a busy year in the tech world, and 2018 looks no different. We are already looking at some significant tech trends that are expected to make waves this year. While terms like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and Blockchain dominated the technological world in 2017, the prediction is that such technologies will only get more advanced, talked about, adopted, accepted, and prevalent in 2018. Here are the five tech trends that we've been fascinated about, been writing about throughout 2017, and are probably just as keen to see it unfold as Sophia might be in Saudi Arabia!   Read More
