I had the privilege of participating in a panel discussion about 5G Networks and Backhaul at TIA 2014 conference in Dallas. The panel had a well-rounded participation from vendors addressing different parts of mobile networks. As expected there were no violent agreements on this topic, rather it was reaffirmation of a comment made at a session in ITU on the topic of 5G that “5G is like a big elephant in the room where everyone is seeing the different parts of it”.

5G Networks and Backhaul

by Juniper Employee ‎06-02-2014 09:48 AM - edited ‎07-11-2014 02:00 PM

We are in the midst of major 4G rollouts and more than half of the world population have not even tasted the supersonic LTE networks, yet we see a lot of industry talks on the topic of 5G networks. So let us shine our crystal balls and see what 5G networks are all about all the while addressing some of the burning questions related to this topic.

Reflections from MWC14

by Juniper Employee ‎03-05-2014 07:47 AM - edited ‎03-05-2014 03:40 PM

Even though MWC has started to resemble a consumer electronics show, which is evident from the amount of coverage given to the devices and apps. From the remaining discussion that happened within the networking realm the greatest buzz was around virtualization and IoT. Rather there was so much emphasis on VoE (virtualization of everything) that it seems as though we have managed to transform our problems from the real world to the virtual world Smiley Happy

MWC14 will be rife with new announcements about the future of the mobile networks. The theme of the show "Creating What is Next" screams of the innovations in line for the next decade, 2020 and beyond.

 

I am going to throw my hat in the ring and explain how Juniper's Hi-IQ Networks vision will transform the mobile networks of the future ...

Celebrations, lists and predictions are all to be indulged in as we approach the festivities and a new year. I’m no exception so here are a few of my predictions for the world of LTE as we go into 2014.

I contend that MSPs, consumers and third party services providers such as banks take mobile network security for granted. I really don’t think any segment has fully thought through the implications for them, their brand, their ability to win new business, or the safety of personal information and all that implies. A new white paper by the Juniper team takes a look at some of the underlying causes and effect. My blog calls out some of the highlights and also gives you a link to download the white paper.

Having previously foiled the dark plot of the “Empire”, let us look at what the Jedi knights at Ericsson are up to these days. They deserve the title of Jedi as for last 20+ years they have been busy keeping the order in our mobile galaxy by fighting at forefront against the evil plots of the “Empire” and other separatists.

 

Their recent innovation, the indoor small cell system, named “Dot”, has seen mixed reaction from friends and foes. Even though the architecture can be called the classical closed system from the radio heads, it looks way better than the “Hyper Dense HetNet” proposed by the Imperial army generals, I mean visionaries.

The Empire Strikes Back ... with “Hyper Dense HetNet”

by Juniper Employee ‎11-01-2013 09:50 AM - edited ‎11-06-2013 09:59 AM

Continuing on the saga of mobile architecture wars, the first stop on our journey is to get some peak on QCOM’s activities. It is befitting to give them the title of “The Empire” as they spent the good part of the last decade acting as patent bullies collecting royalties from their CDMA arsenal. After the global adoption of LTE as the standard for evolving both 3GPP and 3GPP2 based RAN, the CDMA gravy train has come to a screeching halt, so they have shifted their focus lately on selling real stuff Smiley Happy However, they need to sell a lot more of these tiny processors to continue their growth profile. Recently they have been pitching the “1000x data challenge” in various industry events. Guess what, who is going to benefit from this vision, of course “The Empire”.

Bo Diddley and the LTE Security Debate – Who Do You Trust?

by Juniper Employee ‎10-31-2013 04:03 AM - edited ‎10-31-2013 05:46 AM

LTE offers mobile operators a chance to fight back against the “cost-per-bit” culture that has come to dominate a market with falling ARPU. But Patrick Donegan, writing in a paper by Heavy Reading, feels there will be a close correlation between financial performance and the adoption of end-to-end IP Security. Why then, do many operators find it an acceptable risk not to adopt end-to-end IPSec?

Paul Gainham (Senior Director of Service Provider Marketing, EMEA) examines some of the challenges facing mobile network operators as they seek to scale their networks with All IP technologies.

 

In a short video (less than 20 minutes) Paul identifies how LTE networks can address the sometimes conflicting issues of IP Security, resiliency and session scale. The video can be viewed directly from the link in the blog.
