5G Enabled Manufacturing

How can 5G be of help in making industries more efficient and flexible? This is what I together with a team at Ericsson, SKF and Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, worked on in a project called 5GEM, 5G Enabled Manufacturing. Now the follow-up project 5GEM II has just started, with Volvo Trucks and Siemens joining as new partners.

Industry Forum to promote Versatile Video Coding

Video is the single most important data traffic driver in mobile networks. According to the latest Ericsson Mobility report it is forecast to grow by 45 percent annually to account for 73 percent of all mobile data traffic in 2023. This is why video compression is key to Ericsson and a great motivation for our research team contributing to the emerging Versatile Video Coding (VVC) standard in the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG).

5G NR release 16 – start of the 5G Evolution

The finalization of the 3GPP release 15 in June this year was a major milestone in many respects. The first 5G New Radio (NR) specifications are complete and commercial deployments will be available by the end of this year. It is also the basis for the continuous evolution of 5G NR technology, spanning across multiple releases, to further improve performance and address new use cases. The first step of this evolution was recently taken when several 3GPP working groups met in Gothenburg, Sweden, to start the work on release 16.

5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access

OFDM, ultra-lean, mini-slots, beam-centric, …. these are just some of the many words and acronyms being used in conjunction with 5G and it is easy to get lost among all the terms and technology components. We believe our recently released book 5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access Technology, fills an important need for those interested in the recently released 5G NR standard. The book describes the standard in detail, both the technologies as such but also why specific technologies were decided to be included in the standard.
