Are you ready for 5G?

Are you ready for 5G?

5G is seemingly all the news, all the focus and all the budget for Mobile Operators.   Today's initial 5G deployments are radio solutions that leverage the existing 4G core.  These are primarily mmwave point to point backhaul solutions.  Accuris Networks customers are leveraging these for improved performance and cost for their Carrier Wi-Fi deployments.  Yes, 5G and Wi-Fi co-exist quite nicely.  As demand continues to spike within Carrier Wi-Fi networks, end-to-end performance improvements and enhancements are necessary.  That said, 5G radio requires interworking with the existing 4G core.  Where it gets exciting is when the 5G deployments move to standalone 5G New Radio (5G NR) which entails a 5G core.  Interworking becomes even more critical for seamless service capability within the 5G and "legacy" 4G cores.  Accuris Networks interworking technology is solving these service requirements today and is ideally positioned to enable 5G NR, specifically enabling and monetizing network slicing.  Not sure about network slicing?  Reach out to us to find out about it and how you too can be 5G ready today.

The Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) has a very compelling new Webinar series on TelecomsRadar about Carrier Wi-Fi.  Manish Malhotra and Paul Hancock from AT&T present how AT&T is leveraging Passpoint.  In particular, Paul shares a detailed history of AT&T leveraging wi-fi to improve their end users broadband experience including their migration from older to newer authentication protocols to improve security and user-experience.  Accuris Networks is a proud partner of AT&T helping them deliver on these two critical aspects of Mobile Offload services.  Register to watch the webinar here:  https://telecomsradar.com/webinar/att-business-wi-fi-product-overview

Recently, NBC’s Today show team presented some topical segments on the dangers of open, unsecure Wi-Fi that are commonplace at Hotels and other locations https://www.today.com/money/how-protect-your-data-hackers-while-spring-break-t124181 and https://www.today.com/money/spring-break-travel-safety-jeff-rossen-offers-tips-t125260 (head to 3:10 for the Wi-Fi segment in this one). Both highlight again the growing everyday risks to users in being knowingly (or unknowingly) attached to open Wi-Fi networks where their usage can easily be monitored, intercepting sensitive personal data such as Credit card numbers, Bank and Email account information.

A few weeks ago our Charman/CEO, Larry Quinn and EMEA Regional Sales VP, Mohammed Elneel were invited to participate at Emirates Data Clearing House (EDCH) 15th Annual User Group meeting gathering 82 operators from Europe, Africa, Asia and the MENA region.  An article in CommsMEA noted:

It’s a Tale of Two Radios. We’re all pretty familiar with the two main Radio Access Networks (or RANs as they are known as in the trade) on our Smartphone or tablet devices that give us that all-important internet connectivity: Cellular mobile and Wi-Fi – and also the big difference between them historically in terms of ease of access to that connectivity from a user experience perspective.

Last week, my family and I spent a week in New York City.  It truly is one of the great cities of the world.  While my kids were staring up at the massive buildings, I was captivated by the LinkNYC Wi-Fi kiosks on the street corners.
