5G
Challenges:

All operators are searching for improved coverage, capacity and reliability while, at the same time, reducing their operational costs. 5G promises to meet many of the future demands and enable previously unviable use cases to be exploited. But, as with any technology, 5G has its limitations along with potentially significant costs. These variables need to be understood and factored into any medium or long term strategy.

An efficient spectrum allocation strategy allows operators to boost capacity and deliver better services within the constraints of the spectrum available to them.

It is a fact that the majority of customers value a faster, low latency, mobile data connection. The actual technology used to deliver the service (4G or 5G) is of less importance. However, the introduction of new services that require much higher speeds and lower latency will, at some point in the relatively near future, reach a point where only 5G can support them.

There are still numerous challenges associated with implementing 5G.

  • One of the major challenges is that 5G is not yet a defined standard. Therefoe it is very important to bring all major technology partners on board and to have a standardized approach so as to make sure that there is proper control of any 5G development time and costs.
  • The introduction of 5G will increase data traffic exponentially placing stress on the backhaul of any existing network. Having the right backhaul solution capable of supporting the current and forecasted capacities will be a crucial point for having a successful 5G deployment.
  • Operators will also need to thoroughly asses and understand the effect of the need for additional power and the reduced coverage due to the use of wider bandwidths and the higher frequency bands associated with the new 5G equipment.
Solution:

Cyberteq end to end 5G consultancy service supports operators as they develop their 5G strategy ensuring they make the optimal investment decisions.

The detailed analysis for the 5G consultancy service is typically based on the following:

  • Evaluating the 5G business case and checking the 5G deployment feasibility identifying how and where to deploy it.
  • Assessing available spectrum and its related cost including, where appropriate, evaluating spectrum sharing options so as to have efficient use of the available spectrum especially in the more rural areas.
  • Solution Architecture Assessment reviewing both the technologies and systems used.
  • Current / Planned Infrastructure plan: fiber deployment, wireless & seamless backhaul, small cells deployment.
Results:

Cyberteq will present a detailed report for the 5G consultancy service with an executive summary, typically covering the following topics:

  • Clear recommendations guiding the right decision by clearly showing the “right” spectrum for the “right” technology in the “right” geographical location.
  • Full assessment of the proposed Infrastructure and Architecture Strategy for the deployment of the 5G network. The report includes assessment of the existing and proposed Access, IT, Fiber, Backhaul, small cell deployment, virtualization, automation framework and the supporting core network modernization such as Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) with its related CAPEX & OPEX.
  • Develop a plan to optimize the re-use of existing equipment based on current and anticipated traffic and geographical location.
  • Provide details of quick – win opportunities by highlighting suitable IoT solutions for the operator in his specific market:
    • Smart Cities: smart utilities, asset tracking, healthcare, environmental monitoring etc.
    • Transportation: traffic control, fleet monitoring, cost optimization, etc.
    • Agriculture: field monitoring, environmental monitoring, etc.
    • Manufacturing: machine monitoring, logistics etc.
