The 5G Infrastructure Market

May 13, 2019

 

An essential component of 5G networks, Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) facilitates optimization of 5G network resources. Without MEC, 5G would continue to rely upon back-haul to centralized cloud resource for storage and computing, diminishing much of the otherwise positive impact of latency reduction enabled by 5G. MEC enables users and devices to store/access much higher volumes of data via direct access to the Internet rather than through the cellular core. Read More.

Voice over 5G (Vo5G)

Feb 27, 2019

 

The Vo5G market will inherently support voice/audio as a key component of communications for a wide variety of apps and services for many consumer, enterprise, and industrial solutions. Vo5G market evolution will involve a few important considerations in terms of network topology, equipment and software upgrades and integration. Most options involve evolution from Voice over LTE (VoLTE) to Voice over New Radio (VoNR) as 5G will be based on new RF via millimeter wave propagation …

 

5G Smart Antenna Market

Feb 11, 2019

 

Once 5G networks are operational, continuous Vo5G coverage will be facilitated by directing RF where it is needed communications. In absence of 5GNR for Voice over NR (VoNR) coverage, Vo5G calls will need to hand-over to LTE, analogous to how LTE handover to 3G was accounted for in 4G deployments. However, there is a big difference. Unlike LTE, which is becoming increasingly ubiquitous (especially in metro areas), 5GNR will be …

 

Multi Access Edge Computing Market

Feb 6, 2019

 

In cellular networks, edge computing via MEC is beneficial for LTE, but virtually essential for 5G. This is because Mobile Edge Computing facilitates optimization of fifth generation network resources including focusing communications and computational capacity where it is needed the most. Without MEC, 5G would continue to rely upon back-haul to centralized cloud resource for storage and computing, diminishing much of the otherwise positive impact of latency reduction enabled by 5G.

Blog: Tolerance Relaxation for Improved Quality, Reduced Cost

September 21, 2015

 

Component tolerances should be set based on how the parts fit together, what they have to do, and how they are manufactured. The bad news is that this is not how tolerances are usually determined. The good news is that this creates enormous quality improvement and cost reduction opportunities. While quality improvement based on relaxed tolerances seems counterintuitive, a quick look at how tolerances are assigned and the consequences of overly-stringent tolerances reveal why this is so.
