The cloud has been going through a continuous evolution process since its birth, and each year we witness highly relevant advances. The fast rise and adoption of container technologies was one of the most visible developments in 2014. Continue reading
In this blog post we give our view on Internet security and how we as a company will continue to strive for end user protection. We also describe the solutions we will drive in standardization; for example mechanisms to ensure that tomorrow’s network services work with protected traffic. Continue reading
Fresh from our Kista 5G Transport Lab: A demo of programmable transport showing how transport and radio resources can be jointly optimized in response to dynamic traffic patterns.
How can you get all users in high rise buildings >200 Mbps throughput wherever they are, and reduce network energy consumption at the same time? Through advanced antennas, flexible, user-specific beamforming and a new mobility algorithm.
The key is to use spectrum at high carrier frequencies, and to deploy advanced antennas to combat the challenging propagation conditions at these frequencies. We’d like to share with you the facts of our solution, which we demonstrated at the Mobile World Congress recently.
Short-range radio technologies can be used to connect groups of small devices to the Internet, via capillary gateways and cellular networks. But then, how do we manage the devices in these large scale sensor networks? And what’s the best way to process the data generated by these networks, so we can make use of it for real world actuation?
At the recent Mobile World Congress, we used a model railway with embedded sensors to demonstrate how we address two important aspects of IoT and sensor networks. Continue reading
Is Hadoop cloud ready? Is Cloud Hadoop ready? Find out what to expect when running Hadoop on OpenStack. Continue reading
Channel scanning and selection to operate a wireless network in frequencies with low received interference is always the first and most effective step for spectrum sharing and interference mitigation. Smart channel selection is thus sufficient in most scenarios (e.g., isolated and sparse deployments). In this second blog post on LAA, we discuss co-channel operation measures when different systems need to operate on the same frequencies. Continue reading
A key feature of Licensed Assisted Access, LAA, will be fair spectrum sharing and co-existence of LAA-enabled devices with other devices using the 5 GHz band. This is the first of two posts outlining the principles and practical applications of LAA solutions. Continue reading
Also known as Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth Smart is an interesting short-range radio technology that could be used for connecting tiny devices into the Internet of Things. Continue reading
