    Last month, at 5G World in London (June 13-15), I chaired the Antenna Evolution Focus Day, which turned out to be extremely well attended with more than 100 people, mostly mobile operators representatives, and nobody was shy. Instead, much food for thought was brought to the discussion by speakers from 3UK, BT/EE, Bell Canada, China Mobile, Elisa, KT, Orange, Telekom Slovenije, TIM (Telecom Italia Mobile), T-Mobile, and Vodafone. Since everybody is operating an LTE-Advanced network with various levels of carrier aggregation, adding new antennas to achieve massive MIMO (Multiple Inputs Multiple Outputs) was the core of the discussion.

    Cloud service providers (CSPs) have begun to offer a variety of compute services to meet customers’ needs. Those needs can vary from general purpose computing, data mining, and website development to more complex requirements like artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), big data analysis, and real-time video processing. This has resulted in CSPs implementing different compute types, or instances, within their cloud infrastructures based on varying combinations of processors and co-processors, memory, storage, and networking equipment, providing customers with more options to choose the appropriate mix of resources they need for their applications.

    The “software-defined” focus of telecom means not only separation of the control plane and the data plane with a centralized view of the whole network or its major parts but also a distribution of intelligence—read compute—in stepping stones toward the extreme edge of the network. We hear “edge compute” embodied in such efforts as MEC, at first in “Mobile Edge Compute,” morphing into “Multi-access Edge Compute”.
