Shipments of 5G Smartphones Will Surge to 900 Million Units in 2024

Shipments of 5G Smartphones Will Surge to 900 Million Units in 2024
by Robert Castellano on 11-03-2019 at 6:00 am

5G smartphones will increase from just 13 million units in 2019 to 900 million in 2024, as previous 2G/3G/4G smartphones shipments will decline slightly over the 2019-2024 period, reaching parity with 5G smartphones in 3Q 2023, as shown in the chart below.

Virtualizing 5G Infrastructure Verification

Virtualizing 5G Infrastructure Verification
by Bernard Murphy on 10-17-2019 at 5:00 am

Mentor have pushed the advantages of virtualized verification in a number of domains, initially in verifying advanced networking devices supporting multiple protocols and software-defined networking (SDN), and more recently for SSD controllers, particularly in large storage systems for data centers. There are two important… Read More


Auto Architecture and the Need for Speed

Auto Architecture and the Need for Speed
by Roger C. Lanctot on 10-11-2019 at 10:00 am

Automotive makers and their suppliers are jacking up the processing power being introduced to cars along with higher speed wireless external connections. These high speed systems promise to collect, process, interpret and transmit sensor data for the purpose of enabling advanced collision avoidance and, ultimately, automated

5G Deployments – The Analysis Requirements are Ginormous

5G Deployments – The Analysis Requirements are Ginormous
by Tom Dillinger on 10-07-2019 at 10:00 am

The introduction of 5G communications support offers tremendous potential across a broad spectrum of applications (no pun intended).  5G is indeed quite encompassing, across a wide range of frequencies – the figure below illustrates the common terminology used, from low-band, mid-band (“sub 6G”), and high-band (“mmWave… Read More

Forget about 5G
by Roger C. Lanctot on 09-20-2019 at 10:00 am

Image RemovedThere is a vast amount of hubbub in the automotive industry regarding the onset of 5G technology. Industry excitement is manifest in the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) which is facilitating collaboration (among 120+ member) between the automotive industry and the wireless industry, possibly for the first … Read More

5G Auction without Action​ = Fraud
by Roger C. Lanctot on 08-07-2019 at 10:00 am

Image Removed“We don’t need 10 Mbit/s, but rather basic bandwidth and guaranteed latency. We need coverage!” thus spoke BMW Senior Vice President of Electronics Christoph Grote at the recent Automobil-Elektronik Kongress in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Grote was making this plea in the context of the onset of… Read More


5G and V2X

5G and V2X
by Bernard Murphy on 07-25-2019 at 5:00 am

Amid the glamor of autonomous vehicles and hot new ADAS features, communication between vehicles and other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists or infrastructure, generally labeled V2X, doesn’t get as much press, perhaps because adoption is still pretty early or because it’s technology under the hood (quite literally) and therefore… Read More

5G Faith & the Automotive Industry
by Roger C. Lanctot on 07-19-2019 at 6:00 am

Image RemovedAs the automotive industry slowly comes to terms with the implications of 5G connections in cars there are few outside the industry that understand the significance of this technology transition. It isn’t just a technology turning point. It is an emotional turning point for the industry as well.

Integrated SIMs Will Unlock IoT Growth

Integrated SIMs Will Unlock IoT Growth
by Bernard Murphy on 06-27-2019 at 5:00 am

I’m a believer that connectivity for the IoT at scale (the trillions of devices that the industry predicts) has to be cellular. This is partly based on reach, particularly outside urban areas, but is mostly based on the financial implications of that scale. Yes, you can build infrastructure for say local Wi-Fi support with backhaul… Read More


Dynamic Spectrum Allocation to Help Crowded IoT Airwaves

Dynamic Spectrum Allocation to Help Crowded IoT Airwaves
by Tom Simon on 06-26-2019 at 10:00 am

Radio frequency bandwidth has become a precious commodity, with communications companies paying top dollar for prized pieces of the spectrum. However, many radio bands are not often used efficiently. Many existing radio protocols exchange data on a fixed pair of frequencies, tying up those frequencies for other users. When… Read More
