5G Core Network Flexibility
November 16, 2018

5G Core Network  End-to-end flexibility is confirmed to be one of the core features of future 5G networks. This flexibility will result in large part from the introduction of network softwarization, i.e., the network hardware and the software functions are separate. Network softwarization through network functional virtualization (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN), network slicing and Cloud-RAN […]

The Evolution of Security in 5G
November 2, 2018

Introduction 5G will give a diverse and new set of services and use cases affecting nearly every aspect of our lives. But to exceed all expectations, 5G-enabled services and applications must be delivered securely. For example, 5G will support Massive Internet of Things (MIoT) implementations like traffic sensors and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) services that are the […]

5G New Radio (NR) Physical Layer
May 4, 2018

New Radio is a new air interface that is not backward compatible with LTE, LTE⁃Advanced or LTE⁃Advanced⁃pro. Without depending on 2G, 3G or 4G networks, NR networks can be independently deployed. In order to be able to work independently, NR should have a complete set of RAN functionalities. Just like the previous mobile generation networks, […]
