Edge Computing: The Promises It Holds and Market Dynamics
The data driven societies pushes for more decentralized management to overcome data storage overhauls and faster transmission spreads in various data streams. As wireless technology is getting more advanced, there is a need to reconsider data hierarchical restructuring through edge computing, to pave the way for better latency, operation efficiency, speed, reliability, and versatility. Already, video and gaming technologies have benefited from edge technologies by streamlining their services delivery as well as boosting their revenue growth. However, lack of standard thwarts unified development and application of edge computing at global level due to defragmented standards. As such, enterprises that have already purged into edge computing such as AWS, Google and Microsoft need to embark on more collaborative approaches to ensure unified standards in edge computing developments.
6G Network Prospects: How it Will Transform the Wireless Communication Landscape
The 5G is still in its early stages, yet many technical issues have arisen from its implementation due to increasing data use. The world data traffic is currently more than 49EB per month, and existing technologies like Virtual Reality (VR) needs more than 10Gbps offered by 5G – a factor that calls for action beyond the 5G network; the 6G. 6G developments will shifts 5G paradigms and employ new technologies to ensure cost efficiency, long-range connectivity, low jitter, delay and latency, and scalability and device reuse. This paper provides an overview of 6G, explores how the wireless landscape will be transformed in the wake of the 6G network and the potential benefits of such transformations.
How Modern Technologies Can Build a Smart City
We have seen number of technologies growing together to shape the world. Here I tried to capture technologies role for smart cities where every attribute of a city is connected, smartly managed and at the end bring great value to city dwellers.
How Apprenticeship Can Help U.S. Telco Workforce Buildup
As the Covid-19 shakes most global economies, the world of employment has experienced the worst-case scenario of unemployment due to business disruption, reduction of revenue flow, and stay-at-home policies to mitigate the spread of the virus. Employment rate in most industries is dipping, and some industries like hospitality are feeling the heatwave brought by Covid-19. On the contrary, telecommunication companies are trying to expand their workforce in the middle of the pandemics with a severe labor shortage. This factor thwarts emerging technology adoption, such as the 5G rollout in rural America. Tech executive Zulkernyne Ibne Tahasin shared his thoughts on current 5G progress and challenges. Zulkernyne has been working in telco industry for a decade and has first-hand workforce development experience for new technology introduction and massive rollout in different markets around the world.
An efficient handover scheme for PMIPv6 in IEEE 802.16/WiMAX network
In the era of wireless communication, mobility management is an important issue. The world is deploying WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) as the standard for broadband wireless communication because of it’s wide application areas, high speed and architecture for seamless handover. Alongside, a network-based mobility management protocol called PMIPv6 (Proxy Mobile Internet Protocol version 6) is being actively standardized and is starting to attract considerable attention among the telecommunication and Internet communities for its less handover latency. In PMIPv6, the functioning network provides control of the mobility management on behalf of the mobile node. Thus the mobile node is relieved from any mobility related signaling. However, the PMIPv6 suffers from handover latency and packet loss during handover. In this paper, an efficient handover scheme is proposed within a PMIPv6 domain in the WiMAX network. The proposed scheme reduces handover latency by eliminating the need of a Policy Server (PS) and by pre-registration of the mobile node for a new access point. Furthermore, a comprehensive analysis has been done by NS-2 (Network Simulator-2) for evaluating the delay of our proposed handover scheme and that of general PMIPv6. The analysis results reveal that the proposed strategy for handover has significantly reduced the handover latency of general PMIPv6.
