Mobile communications is creating a different approach to the next future and my company, laroccasolutions, is a part of it! At MWC2018 we have been able to see many news but two was the center of the show: 5G & NFV.
Furthermore, Industry 4.0, IoT, security and blockchain, but the real star of the mobile sector was 5G. This technology is a must for the digital revolution that will allow the transition to the Gigabit society. MWC 2018 has seen many 5G-related announcements, partnership, radios, plans, spectrum, and trials.
Ericsson presented a guide for MNO to maximise revenues during the transition to 5G! We are talking about a revenue potential of $101 billion by 2026!!! Enhanced video services came in second, with potential revenue of $96 billion! According to Ericsson, although it believes enhanced mobile broadband will be the first commercial deployment of 5G.
The Ericsson CEO said that governments should help enable 5G by making new spectrum available and providing a “stable regulatory environment” as well as faster permitting processes
Huawei launched its first commercial 5G CPE, a terminal device supporting 3GPP 5G standards with a Huawei-developed Balong 5G01 chipset, as part of its end-to-end 5G solution
Accordingly to the chinese giant, this is the world’s first commercial 3GPP 5G chipset supporting download speeds of up to 2.3Gbps across sub-6GHz and millimetre-wave (mmWave) spectrum bands
ZTE’s 5G CPE is already under development! The chinese company saying it will launch 5G smartphones & tablets in either late 2018 or early 2019. Furthermore, ZTE will be deploying networking products across commercial 5G networks by first half of next year
ZTE will be also able to help MNOs to start the 5G Network deploy
MWC2018 was has been not only a place to present new technology and discuss about it, a new wide-ranging collaboration agreement was signed between MNO & Technology Vendors. As example, TIM & Huawei Italia, sign an agreement to promote digital transformation based on IoT solutions. The partnership aims to exploit the most innovative solutions & business models based on the vertical sectors of the Internet of Things (IoT), including Industry 4.0, Smart Metering, Smart Cities, Smart Agriculture, and more
A first step in this cooperation is the joint opening of a new experience center in Italy to test and develop innovative IoT solutions
Furthermore, another great announcement wasabout the agreement between Cisco and TIM that commits the two companies to develop a joint innovation program in Italy to offer innovative solutions and services in the fields of the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, smart city , cybersecurity and 5G
We are at the height of the digital revolution and the transition affects multiple businesses with technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics and related objects and this agreement is a first step towards the new transition
