prnewswire | January 27, 2021

LF Networking (LFN), which encourages joint effort and operational greatness across open source organizing projects, today declared the making of the Anuket project. A consolidation of CNTT (The Cloud iNfrastructure Telco Taskforce, which gave reference models and structures to both virtual machine and containerized network capacities) and OPNFV (the Open Platform for NFV, which diminished chance to coordinate and convey NFV framework and installed VNF/CNFs), Anuket apparatuses and antiquities engage the worldwide interchanges local area to convey agreeable organization benefits quicker, more dependably and safely, and quicken the change to cloud local foundations.

Anuket conveys normalized reference foundation details and conformance structures for virtualized and cloud local organization capacities, empowering quicker and more powerful onboarding into creation, lessening costs, and quickening telecom computerized change. By proceeding with OPNFV's tradition of working upstream with cooperation across other open source projects, (for example, LF Networking, LF Edge, CNCF, LF AI, ODIM and other industry associations and norms bodies) and CNTT's administrator center, the undertaking guarantees innovation meets business and operational requirements. Anuket will likewise protect CNTT's nearby working relationship with GSMA, who will keep on distributing the undertaking's Reference Model work.

"It's incredible to see the evolution of what began as the Open Platform for Network Functions Virtualization over six years ago," said Heather Kirksey, vice president of Community and Ecosystem Development at the Linux Foundation. "With Anuket, we are making it easier and more efficient for CSPs to transform their networks and save money, with one, end-to-end platform."

"The Anuket project is unique in covering Operator requirements collection and normalisation, subsequent open-source software development, through to Industry certification programs of ecosystem implementations, all under a single initiative," said Walter Kozlowski, Anuket Technical Steering Committee co-chair and Principal, Cloud Infrastructure Architecture, at Telstra. "I am proud to serve in the role of a co-chair of its Technical Steering Committee, and I am excited by the unique opportunity this project creates for my company and for the whole industry, in the area of network transformation and related telco open infrastructure."

Next Generation Efforts in Wireless Communications Move Forward

5G Americas | November 25, 2021

While there is still a lot of innovation ahead for 5G, many projects identified as “Next G” and “6G” are already underway globally with significant leadership from the Americas. Today, 5G Americas, the voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas announced the publication of a new white paper entitled Mobile Communications Towards 2030, which details how the industry will continue to build and evolve wireless communications networks for consumers and enterprises beyond what we know as 5G today. Chris Pearson, President of 5G Americas, said, “While 5G is at the beginning of a long era of innovation with a full road map of exciting enhancements, the work to research and study the next generation of possibilities is already underway. It is imperative that the Americas region build and maintain leadership, gathering input from wireless operators and vendors, as well as academia, other vertical industries, and the government.” Emerging next generation wireless communications use cases are still several years away from being formulated but include some thrilling opportunities. Early use cases may include multi-sensory telepresence and immersion via extended reality (XR), as well as use of digital twins in Industry 4.0’s cyber-physical systems. Additional use cases may include holographic teleportation, tactile and haptic communications, and many more. Wireless impacts on vertical industries may include opportunities in precision crops and livestock, biosensor monitoring in health care, advanced driver assist and autonomous driving for transportation systems, first responder systems that allow rapid data collection from sensors and real-time situational awareness, and government and defense systems utilizing ubiquitous connectivity. Additionally, the white paper provides insight into the vision and requirements necessary for next generation wireless networks to come to life. Emerging applications may require very high data rates into the Tbps range for digital twins and tactile feedback, extremely wide coverage for rural or defense needs, and reliability up to “seven nines” for intense remote control and digital twin requirements. Mobile Communications Towards 2030 examines the following areas: Activities in North America in context of next generation wireless work Review of global activities (China, Japan, Europe, Korea, Taiwan & India) Use Cases (multi-sensory telepresence and immersion, Industry 4.0, digital twins, and advances in different vertical industries) Technology requirements and network evolution Technology enablers and trends North American leadership Brian Daly, Assistant Vice President, Standards & Industry Alliances, AT&T and technical work group co-leader on the paper, commented, “While 5G is still early in its lifecycle and is being evolved and enhanced through upcoming 3GPP releases while worldwide deployment continues, we recognize the need to begin to promote early commitment to creating a 5G to Next G marketplace and to ensure North America continues to lead in technology development. The groundwork for the next exciting chapter of wireless revolution is beginning as academia and US-based alliances are looking at advancing technology, along with the US government focused in forging fruitful partnerships with private sector.” Swaminathan “Swami” Arunachalam, Senior Director, 6G Research and Industry Alliances, North America, Nokia, and 5G Americas group co-leader, further added, “It is early in the cycle for 6G research. Technologies relevant in the 6G era like network disaggregation and programmability across the end-to-end system are also planned to be studied and deployed in the context of 5G-Advanced. These are important stepping stones towards the 6G era which will comprise of new and additional technologies such as THz radio technologies, communication and sensing capabilities, sub-networks." About 5G Americas: The Voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas 5G Americas is an industry trade organization composed of leading telecommunications service providers and manufacturers.
