TeleSemama interview on OpenRAN
March 25, 2020
Listen to the interview I did for TeleSemana on OpenRAN. In the interview, I discuss the results of the survey I did for Mavenir on how mobile operators view OpenRAN. Why and where do they want to deploy OpenRAN? What are the requirements? 
Localized spectrum sharing to improve in-building and rural connectivity in the UK
February 25, 2020
New interview added to the CBRS launch report: Mansoor Hanif, Ex-CTO at Ofcom talks about a new spectrum-sharing framework in the UK that – similarly to Citizen Broadband Radio Services (CBRS) – will improve wireless connectivity in the enterprise and in underserved areas. And the Ofcom new approach to spectrum sharing promises to make both mobile operators and their subscribers happy, too. 
Autonomous networks
February 9, 2020
5G brings more capacity, lower latency, better performance, but also makes wireless networks more complex. Automation, AI and ML can help us manage and benefit from this complexity and eventually make wireless networks autonomous. This requires a new underlying architecture and a gradual evolution from manual to autonomous networks.
Who will build and pay for the edge?
December 18, 2019
There is broad industry consensus on the need and value of the edge, but it is still uncertain how the move to distributed networks will unfold, especially in the enterprise, alongside the rise of IoT and private networks. Who will build and pay for the edge infrastructure?  Both the enterprise and service providers may try to position themselves to dominate the edge infrastructure, but it is more likely, more efficient and cost effective for them to share the helm of the edge and build new and deeper working and financial relationships than they have been able to do until now.
Enabling the wireless enterprise with ultra-low latency and high reliability
December 17, 2019
Does the enterprise need the high reliability and ultra-low latency that 5G and Wi-Fi 6 can bring? Which applications need URLLC? And can the enterprise afford the cost of URLLC?

CBRS: Learning to listen to the enterprise
December 11, 2019
CBRS gives the enterprise the opportunity to move beyond Wi-Fi and increase the depth and width of their wireless infrastructure. For CBRS to succeed, the ecosystem has to develop solutions that meet the enterprise’s needs, culture, and expectations. I talked with Caroline Chan at Intel, about how we can learn more from the enterprise and how this can help the ecosystem fine tune how to work with the enterprise.
CBRS 101 for the enterprise
November 3, 2019
CBRS offers enterprises an unprecedented opportunity to deploy private cellular networks on premises. But many enterprises are still trying to figure out what CBRS can do for them – and how it is different from what other technologies can do. Monica Paolini, Senza Fili, takes off her analyst hat and asks Dave Wright, CBRS Alliance what CBRS has to offer to the enterprise.
How did the FCC take CBRS off the ground?
November 3, 2019
CBRS is highly innovative approach to spectrum regulation that can be a blueprint for other multi-tier, shared-access models that can be used in other bands and in other countries. CBRS encourages a more efficient way to use – and re-use – spectrum, and new business models for both service providers and enterprises. The FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly tells us about how the FCC settled how the FCC created CBRS.
CBRS makes it easier for the enterprise to deploy private LTE networks
November 3, 2019
Does CBRS make private LTE networks more attractive and manageable to the enterprise? Does it meet the enterprise performance, reliability and security requirements for IoT applications? We talked to Catherine Melquist, NetNumber about how CBRS private networks can reduce the complexity of public cellular networks without compromising the performance.
