Real Wireless Manifesto 2016

Real Wireless Manifesto 2016

Each year, we draw on the independent expertise of Real Wireless’ experts to summarise the issues the mobile industry needs to address in the next 12 months and why. We consider not just the technology but the commercial, regulatory and economic aspects too. The 2016 Real Wireless Manifesto looks at two of the high profile challenges facing operators and the mobile industry – 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT).

5G

5G is the future standard for wireless for mobile and a whole host of other markets. While we expect to start seeing commercial activity around the Olympic Winter Games in Seoul (2018) and the Olympic Games in Tokyo (2020), the full potential won’t be realised until 2025. There is so much potential – and need – for 5G to support markets where to date wireless has not typically enabled such markets to reach their full potential, from healthcare to the connected car.

IoT

The Internet of Things is a term that seems to have been around forever, but one that has never truly reached its full potential. Despite this, 2015 was a milestone year for the IoT. But there are still major challenges that need to be overcome with competing standards and a lack of focus on a common solution for spectrum.

What needs to happen in the next 12 months for each of these technologies to reach their potential in the future?

C-RAN – all still up in the air?

C-RAN seems to have been a long time coming. I first started exploring the potential of C-RAN back in 2007. Since then there’s been a great deal of industry talk and thousands of pages of standards describing dozens of C-RAN architectures. And I’m still waiting. Cloud...

Can Satcoms at sea improve operations on land?

We write a lot about the needs of industry and how LTE, Wi-Fi, DAS and 5G, incorporated into a private network, could improve logistics and security and underpin just-in-time operations for airports, sea-ports, factories, stadiums, malls or local government. But what...

Connected vehicles: The long and winding road

The automotive industry’s goal was for every new vehicle to be connected by 2022. Now, less than 18 months out, things are more or less on track. But on track for what? M2M vehicle connectivity is already widely available.  This enables a vehicle to be connected to an...
