The road to 5G – Where are we headed and when will we get there?

There has been much debate in the industry as to what 5G will actually look like, with almost every company having their own definition of 5G. While we know it will be the glue that connects everything to everyone, how do the companies that are helping to make 5G a reality see it?

The Telecoms.com Podcast: Around the world in 45 minutes

The usual suspects attempt to circumnavigate the globe from the comfort of their studio. Iain, Jamie and Scott start by taking a look at the UK broadband scene, where we’re increasingly looking for more fibre in our diets but we’re still not sure why. Moving on to Germany Iain claims a little scoopette with the revelation that Deutsche Telekom has had a cabinet reshuffle and gets to show off his awesome German pronunciation skills. On the other side of the pond the US seems to be getting increasingly paranoid about Chinese telecoms companies and the team concludes its journey in the Nordic region, where Nokia and Ericsson are determined to take business from each other.

France takes tentative steps towards 5G

The Telecoms.com Podcast: Raising your voice

Scott’s finally decided to do some work in 2018 and is joined by Jamie (and his many donuts) and Iain from Light Reading. They start with a review of CES – the first big tech show of the year – and its obsession with voice-driven smart speakers. They move on to the hot topic of social media censorship and, between donuts, Jamie seems to think Scott should be censored for starters, followed by government ministers tweeting about their days out instead of running the country. The team concludes with an Iain rant about 5G, for old time’s sake, which looks set to drown out all other conversation at MWC this year.

Thumbs up for Telefonica tests on T-SDN

Telefonica and Huawei have completed lab tests on a T-SDN (Transport Software-Defined Network) solution, which will help the telco plan, manage, monitor and diagnose its photonic mesh.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: We care a lot

After an extended Christmas break, from which Scott has yet to emerge, Jamie drafts in Iain from Light Reading and Jesse from TBI to take an early look at what we should care about, or not, in 2018. They start by trying to care about net neutrality and largely fail to do so, but they do manage to care a bit more about the prospect of Apple buying Netflix. With a heavy heart the team concludes with 5G, which they feel compelled to at least pretend they care about, except Jesse, who makes no attempt to mask his indifference.
