    To achieve leadership in mobile infrastructure market, suppliers must combine substantial internal research and development with engagement in standardization. This report analyses the contributions vendors and operators have invested in 3GPP standards. This includes holding rapporteur roles in technical specifications groups and contributing work items for technology evolution. The report covers all contributions made between the years 2005 and mid-2018 and focuses primarily on 5G and LTE. However, some other hot domains such as, eMTC, NB-IoT, and V2X will be look at as well. Clients, please log in to view the full content.

    I’m just back from cold and rainy Berlin, where I chaired the second Network Slicing Summit, held 23 October 2018 at the Messe as part of the large annual Broadband World Forum. Like last year, 50+ people attended the Network Slicing Summit, but unlike last year, the event was totally standalone (it was a pre-SON World event last year). We had a well-balanced mix of standards bodies (e.g., 3GPP, ETSI, IEEE), trade bodies (GSMA and 5G-ACIA), academia (e.g., Cork Institute of Technology, University of Peloponnese), regulatory bodies (e.g., Ofcom), and service providers including BT, Bell Canada, Deutsche Telekom, KDDI, NTT DOCOMO, Swisscom, Telenor, Telefónica, Telia, Turk Telecom, and Vodafone. And of course, we ended up with as many definitions of network slicing as people in the room! Coined by our SDN and NFV research leader Michael Howard, here is our end-to-end network slice definition: “An end-to-end network slice is a logical partition or a virtual piece of a physical network, including fixed and mobile, physical and virtual, that has connections, capacities (bandwidth), and characteristics (e.g., SLAs) that make the slice look and act like a physical network to the user, program, or process that is using it.” Clients, please log in to view the full content.

    Over the past decade or so, we have frequently heard about chief technology and information officers (CTIOs), the combination of the chief information officer (CIO) function with that of the chief technology officer (CTO). The rationale has been that because information technology (IT) and telecom network technology are converging and becoming more and more intertwined, the two offices can no longer be separate; instead, there is a need to form a single function aimed at harmonizing all changes, triggered by the implementation of best IT practices into telecom networks.
