ericsson and mit enter into collaboration agreements to research next generation of mobile networks

ericsson and mit enter into collaboration agreements to research next generation of mobile networks

PLANO, Texas, July 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As we enter a new age for electronics powered by 5G and eventually 6G, MIT and Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) are collaborating on two research projects that seek to help build a new network infrastructure needed to empower the truly revolutionary use cases the next generation of mobile networks will bring.

The new mobile network generations bring ultra-fast speed, low latency, and superb reliability to the end user. However large, feature rich networks are complex structures to manage for network operators. Ericsson is working to research cognitive networks, which rely on artificial intelligence (AI) to enable a secure, highly automized, data-driven network operation. To improve the compute power, speed and energy efficiency of cognitive networks, Ericsson Research and the MIT Materials Research Laboratory are collaborating to research new designs in lithionic chips enabling neuromorphic computing, offering exponentially more energy efficient AI processing. This could enable fully cognitive networks with reduced operation complexity and energy consumption compared to today.

In addition to research on lithionics, Ericsson and the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) are collaborating on research of mobile networks that connect trillions of sensors and other zero-energy devices around us. Powering these devices in a cost-efficient way, possibly directly via a radio signal, is a significant technology challenge. The research by Ericsson and MIT RLE may show how devices can harvest energy from radio signals and other sources, as well as how systems can be designed to utilize this low power to accomplish simple tasks, including how a mobile network may be designed to connect and control these devices.

As energy-efficient connected devices take the next leap forward, we are thrilled to be collaborating with Ericsson to tackle the key technical challenges, said Anantha P. Chandrakasan, Dean of MITs School of Engineering. By combining our knowledge with Ericssons expertise in mobile technology, we aim to develop hardware that will power exciting new AI applications on the edge, and take significant strides in the next generation of mobile networks.

5G is leading to a fully-realized IoT and bringing us closer to a truly connected world, said Magnus Frodigh, Head of Ericsson Research. Massive amounts of tiny IoT devices and AI-driven, cognitive networks are two drivers of the next leap forward. Working with the brilliant teams at MIT, we hope to develop the hardware that will make that possible.

ABOUT ERICSSON: Ericsson enables communications service providers to capture the full value of connectivity. The companys portfolio spans Networks, Digital Services, Managed Services, and Emerging Business and is designed to help our customers go digital, increase efficiency and find new revenue streams. Ericssons investments in innovation have delivered the benefits of telephony and mobile broadband to billions of people around the world. The Ericsson stock is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm and on Nasdaq New York. www.ericsson.com

the mobile network a week of open ran and cloud news

the mobile network a week of open ran and cloud news

Qualcomm announced some more details about its ORAN platform releases it has lined up for 2022. It said that it will be producing an accelerator as a plug-in for the O-RAN Distributed Unit (O-DU). The DU is the lower layer PHY function that handles very intensive processing such as Massive MIMO coding (Forward Error Correction) and beam forming & channel management etc. Qualcomm is adopting an in-line accelerator architecture, not look-aside, which it says is more suited to this sort of process.

Additionally, the chip giant said it would have a 5G version of its FSM small cell chipset available in 2022 incorporating some R16 features and supporting vRAN split options for small cells. The series is known as the FSM200xx.

In addition, NEC also launched a RAN Domain Orchestration solution from its subsidiary Netcracker. The solution combines Netcrackers orchestration, OSS and analytics functions with NECs network operation and management to automate the RAN domain. Its based on Netcrackers Digital OSS, running on a Kubernetes, with APIs enabling collaboration with products from different Open RAN vendors.

3.NTT DoCoMo Open RAN white paper NTT DOCOMO released a whitepaper on the 5G Open RAN Ecosystem, a collaboration with 12 partners toward verifying vRAN performance and providing Open RAN to operators worldwide.

The automation services will include Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) automation of the 5G ORAN portfolio of RU/DU/CU products, in conjunction with the Cloud Native 5G NSA and SA core network products, for global frequency bands supporting TDD and FDD technology.

5.CapGemini tribute to Marconi Capgeminis Marconi Projecti is developing RIC (Radio intelligent Controller) functionality on Intel Architecture, andthey have just released a Machine Learning-based RAN application for 5G spectrum optimisation.

The AI powered predictive analytical solution forecasts and assigns the appropriate MCS (modulation and coding scheme) values for signal transmission through forecasting of the user signal quality and mobility patterns accurately. The RAN can intelligently schedule MAC resources to achieve up to 40% more accurate MCS prediction and yield to 15% better spectrum efficiency in the case studies and testing.

Vodafone will deploy Dell EMC PowerEdge servers at base station locations with an initial focus on the 2,500 sites in the UK it is swapping over from Huawei to Open RAN software from Samsung. Vodafone will use ruggedized servers to support Open RAN applications and tackle the demands of data-intensive workloads at the edge.

8.Mavenir and Movandi Movandi, which designs 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) technology is now in a strategic collaboration with Mavenir, to provide its BeamX 5G mmWave technology for the recently announced 5G mmWAVE Open Radio Access Network (RAN) smart city in Thailand.

For the first live sites, the remote radio units (O-RU) are provided by Fujitsu and NEC, including Fujitsus LTE and 5G NR O-RUs and NECs 32T32R 5G massive MIMO (mMIMO) radio units (RU). Mavenir provides the baseband DU-CU software. That vRAN baseband is running on servers from Dell and Supermicro. Its all built on Intel FlexRAN software architecture.

11.Oranges experimental new network Orange has launched its network of the future pilot for real. Its a 5G Standalone network with an Open RAN access layer and a 5G SA Core, and its instrumented with the ability to automate slice management functions and orchestration.

The experimental network is to act as a blue-print for the next generation of an automated, zero touch, AI-led network. But Orange did say in a briefing call with journalists not to read too much across in terms of vendor selection. (The operator is about to announce its 5G core network vendors for its live, production network).

That said the partners for the experimental network include Mavenir for cloud 5G Open RAN, Casa Systems for cloud 5G SA core network, Hewlett Packard Enterprise for Cloud 5G SA Subscriber Data Management, Dell Technologies for infrastructure and servers and Xiaomi for devices.

The Open RAN and core function on a single Kubernetes-based infrastructure, managed by Orange. From July, the network will start using and testing O-RAN radio equipment ND CNFs on a cloud infrastructure, network data collection and AI automation.

12.Axiata and Mavenir and Parallel Axiata said it had launched Open RAN commercial pilots in Sri Lanka and Malaysia. The trials include the first commercial deployment of TIPs Evenstar Split 7.2. Radio Unit (RU) architecture, as part of an Open RAN network that has been deployed with satellite backhaul.

Mavenir and Parallel Wireless are both involved. Mavenir has its MAVair Open vRAN solutions including Packet Core at selected sites in Malaysia, Indonesia and Sri Lanka. The sites selected are connected with non-ideal backhaul (microwave links), and in some cases satellite, to fully test out the rural deployment scenario.

13.stc and Rakuten again On the sidelines of MWC conference, stc signed a memorandum of understanding with Rakuten to expand global partnerships to promote emerging technologies. The cooperation includes developing an independent digital platform that provides cloud communication services and networks and options for deploying OpenORAN access networks and developing new applications and business models.

1.Holy or wholly public cloud? AT&T and Azure After its Domain 2.0 work and its delivery of its automated OSS and network OS into ONAP and continued contributions there, AT&T shocked the market this week with the news that it is moving its 5G SA Core network to Azure, moving people and IP to Microsoft in the process.

The news came just as the role of public cloud in telco achieved new prominence thanks in part to the role ofTelcoDR at MWC21, as well as the expanded presence of the likes of AWS in the virtual exhibition.

Microsoft is acquiring AT&Ts carrier-grade Network Cloud platform technology, which AT&Ts 5G core network runs on. AT&Ts Network Cloud platform has been running AT&Ts 5G core at scale since the company launched 5G in 2018. This move brings real-world production 5G workloads to Azure for Operators. The Network Cloud platform engineering team will receive offers to join Microsoft.

We are distributing our network much closer to customers to run applications and services that can unleash immersive experiences, Igal Elbaz, SVP of Wireless and Access Technology, said. The idea is a hybrid cloud platform which rides on public cloud as well as operator premises.

2.Ericsson and Google and TIM With discussions ongoing about the public cloud, and how traditional vendors will react (never mind traditional service providers), Google Cloud and Ericsson announced a partnership to jointly develop 5G and edge cloud solutions.

As part of the partnership, Google Cloud and Ericsson are also piloting enterprise applications at the edge on a live network with TIM. That project will automate the functions of TIMs core 5G network and cloud-based applications, using TIMs Telco Cloud infrastructure, Google Cloud solutions, and Ericssons 5G core network and orchestration technologies.

Participating in AWS virtual stage at MWC21, along with the likes of Amdocs, Nokia, Altiostar, Mavenir and others, NEC and Netcracker said they have deployed their 5G Core and full stack Digital BSS/OSS on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to orchestrate and automate 5G digital services.

In the demonstration, NEC deployed its 5G Core control plane on an AWS Region and its 5G UPF on an AWS Outposts edge location. The edge location is connected to the AWS Local Zone where applications are hosted. 5G services and network slices can be ordered on-demand from Netcrackers Digital Marketplace, and its orchestration systems dynamically place the 5G workloads and applications in the appropriate AWS Local Zone.

4.GSMAs Telco Edge Cloud requirements This week GSMA published its Telco Edge Cloud Requirements document, something that over 40 operators and 25 vendor partners contributed to work that encompassed 100+ calls over seven months, according to DTs David Gannon, who Chairs the GSMATelco Edge Cloudinitiative.

In a LinkedIn post, Gannon said that the the document describes the key interface requirements for developers to consistently host their load applications (store, compute, AI, ) at the edges of fixed and mobile networks. It also describes the federation obligations that allows loads to follow customers into different networks.

The next steps are to turn these requirements into solutions, for sure by the traditional standards routes of ETSI and 3GPP, but also in parallel by the open source & reference implementation route, as Developers really need to see cloud native APIs to Operator assets.

KDDI announced its work with Deutsche Telekom, MobiledgeX, visual positioning service developer Sturfee and AR-streaming company Mawari. The companies have collaborated on the first global Platform as a Service (PaaS) for XR application development at the edge. The proof of concept is being launched in alignment with GSMAs Telco Edge Cloud (TEC) initiative (see above).

The collaboration will design a Visual Positioning Service (VPS) provided by Sturfee that is compatible with the MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud platform and deploy it as a PaaS to KDDI and Deutsche Telekoms MEC network.

IBM Global Business Services is also integrating Telco Network Cloud solutions into Verizons Service Orchestration Platform. This integration is designed to improve the service quality, predictably and automation of virtual network functions and comply with Open Network Automation Platform interfaces.

OEMs can offer servers running Arm-based CPUs and NVIDIA AI Enterprise software with Aerial 5G. Nvidia said these would create a simplified path to building and deploying self-hosted vRAN that converges AI and 5G capabilities across private enterprises, network equipment companies, software makers and telecommunications services providers.

mobile network state disconnected - network not available

mobile network state disconnected - network not available

This issue has become one of the most common among Android mobile phone users. It can happen for several reasons but the symptoms are always the same: the cell phone does not allow access to the internet through mobile data, and in some cases it is not even possible to make calls. We have collected information with the most effective solutions that several users have contributed and here we explain them step by step how to fix Mobile Network State disconnected.

The Mobile Network State: Disconnected it is a type of conflict that the device can present regarding the reception of signal for mobile data. It may be because the device is trying to connect to a 4G internet network while its Sim card only offers 3G networks or lower. It may also be because the cell phone is configured to give priority to Wi-Fi signals and does not allow the 4G signal to be connected while there is any nearby Wi-Fi signal, among other situations. Lets see several ways to solve the Cellular network State: Disconnected.

what is us mobile, and is it worth it? | tom's guide

what is us mobile, and is it worth it? | tom's guide

Times are changing at US Mobile, a relative newcomer to the wireless scene. Founded in 2015, the cellular service touts highly affordable packages for subscribers who need wireless coverage but want some flexibility in the talk, text and time they use each month. And with the addition of service from a second major carrier, US Mobile's options are now greater than ever, expanding to include unlimited data plans.

Prior to this fall, US Mobile relied on GSM carrier T-Mobile, but that's now changed. US Mobile recently added service through "the biggest 4G LTE network in America." US Mobile won't spell it out specifically, but that means Verizon's network is now an option.

The addition of Verizon's network certainly broadens US Mobile's appeal, as Verizon has managed to consistently remain the fastest wireless network in the U.S. with the most extensive coverage. Rural customers, in particular, will be much better served by this new option. According to US Mobile, users on both networks will enjoy full LTE speeds.

It is worth noting that, unlike with Google Fi, customers cannot benefit from both networks. When you order your SIM card from US Mobile, you have to pick T-Mobile (a GSM network) or Verizon's CDMA network. It's possible to switch to the other network, but it would require a new SIM card and changing some options online. Note that the selection will be per device and not per account, so a customer with multiple lines could opt for two devices with a Verizon-based SIM card and one device with a T-Mobile-based SIM card, for instance.

US Mobile offers 12 phones on its website, with the $69 ZTE Maven 3 as the cheapest option. The most full-featured phones you can buy are last year's HTC One M10 ($699) and 2015's iPhone 6s Plus ($599). In the case of the 6s Plus, that's $50 more than what Apple charges. All of the devices that are available directly from US Mobile are listed at their full retail prices, and the higher-end handsets are, for the most part, a generation or two behind current models.

US Mobile is geared much more toward people who are looking to bring their own device to the network; it's open to any device that is compatible with T-Mobile's GSM network or Verizon's CDMA network. If your device is currently locked, you can even take advantage of US Mobile's unlocking service, which costs $15 (a competitive rate for this service), and the carrier will refund that fee if you stay with the company for six months.

While the addition of Verizon's network has brought greater reach and flexibility to US Mobile, it's also introduced complications to US Mobile's plan pricing. The carrier now offers plans for GSM LTE (phones that use T-Mobile's network) and what it calls Super LTE (that would be Verizon's network). Both customizable plans offer different amounts of talk, text and data at differing amounts.Here's what hasn't changed: US Mobile plans remain prepaid, so at the beginning of the month, you make selections regarding what you expect to use for talk, text and data. Combine the cost of your talk, text and data selections, add in a service fee for your line, and that's your monthly bill. (Ting uses a similar pay-for-what-you-use approach.) For GSM LTE subscribers, monthly talk minutes start at 100 for $3 and range up to 5,000 minutes for $15. For texting, you can pay between $2 (for 100 texts) and $7 (unlimited texts) each month, while data options range from 100MB ($2) to 8GB ($35). You'll pay a $2 service fee for GSM LTE.

On the Super LTE side, the service fees doubles to $4 per line. Talk minutes start at 40 minutes for $2.50 and range up to 5,000 minutes for $15. You'll pay $1.50 each month for 40 texts, with prices capping off at $7 for 5,000 texts. Data limits start at 100MB ($2) and range up to 5GB ($26).

Which service is cheaper depends on how you configure your plan. A GSM LTE subscriber would pay $27 a month for 500 minutes of talk, 1,000 texts and 1GB of data, while that same level of service costs $26 on Super LTE. Send 500 fewer texts, though, and up your data to 3GB a month, and the GSM LTE subscriber pays less $32 vs. $34.If you go over your selected allotments for the month, you'll get a notification and will be prompted to "top up." These additions will remain good for 30 days from the date you add them, so this works a bit like rollover minutes/texts/data on postpaid networks.

But wait: it gets more confusing. US Mobile also features Super LTE Unlimited plans on Verizon's network, with different levels of talk and text, along with different data speeds for your unlimited data. An unlimited data plan that caps data speeds at 1 Mbps with 100 minutes of talk and 100 texts will cost you $35 a month, while the same plan with a 5 Mbps speed cap costs $45. US Mobile's most expensive unlimited option features uncapped data speed and no limits on talk and text: it costs $75 a month. Tack on a $4 per line service fee to those rates, too.

US Mobile offers a straightforward dashboard to manage your account. And while it might have been nice to automate the process, at least the current method makes customers always aware of exactly where they stand for the month.

US Mobile's SIM unlocking service isn't a common feature for a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), and it makes it much simpler to bring a locked device from T-Mobile or Verizon. US Mobile will help unlock your device if it's currently locked to another carrier, like AT&T.

If you're headed out of the country or simply don't need phone service for a period of time, you can "snooze" your US Mobile line for up to three months while retaining the number; you'll just need to pay $2 a month to maintain your line.

Because US Mobile was founded just two years ago, there isn't a tremendous amount of feedback on the carrier, which has roughly 40,000 active lines at the moment. The Better Business Bureau has no rating or data regarding the company; neither do any of the major business review sites.

This leaves us with only customer ratings found online, and these are overwhelmingly positive. US Mobile proudly touts 2,544 reviews across Google, Amazon and Trustpilot, with an average rating of 4.82 stars out of 5. The problem with these kinds of public customer reviews is that the company tends to have some control over which reviews are visible,so take them with a grain of salt.

US Mobile offers a level of customization that few other MVNOs match. While the system of splitting out talk, text and data is common enough, the granularity that US Mobile allows in each category puts it at the forefront of services that have you pay only for what you use, though we wish rates wouldn't vary based on your SIM card. The addition of unlimited data is welcome, too, though again, trying to decide which data speed you want adds another level of complication.

If your smartphone use is very light, you can enjoy some very low monthly costs with US Mobile, thanks to the low service fee per device. The addition of Verizon's network makes US Mobile even more appealing to bargain hunters.

Mobile communications follow the general principle of telephony: connecting two remote users through the network equipment of an operator responsible for managing the service.But unlike fixed phones, in the mobile network, it is not copper wires or fibre optics but radio transmissions that provide the final link.A users mobile telephone communicates through the air with an base station antenna, which in turn links to the central exchange of the operator a computer.This routes the communication to the corresponding party on the fixed network or via other base stations.

To communicate, a mobile user must be within range of base stations. This has a limited range, and covers only a small area around it called the cell (hence the alternative name of cellular networks often used for mobile networks). To cover maximum territory, and ensure that users are always able to call, operators deploy thousands of cells, each equipped with antennas, ensuring that their cells overlap and thus never lose the current location of the users.

urban cells, rural cellsCell size depends on many factors such as the type of base stations used, terrain (plains, mountains, valleys, and so on), location of installation (rural or urban areas), and population density. Cell size is also limited by the range of the mobile phone, which must be able to make the return link.

And, importantly, base stations have a limited transmission capacity, and can only handle a certain number of simultaneous calls. This is the reason why, in urban areas, where the population density is high and there is a significant number of communications, cells tend to be numerous and small hundreds or even only tens of metres apart. In rural areas, where the population density is much lower, the cell size is much larger, sometimes up to several kilometres but rarely exceeding more than ten kilometres.

It is important to emphasise that reducing the power of the signal emitted by base stations in turn reduces the coverage of the cells. Improving the networks ability to carry voice calls or data traffic thus necessarily involves increasing the number of base stations.
