The recent formation of an ETSI Industry Specification Group (ISG) around "Mobile Edge Computing" is supported by IBM, Intel, Huawei, Nokia Networks, NTT DoCoMo and Vodafone. Announcing the launch, Nokia positioned Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) in terms of its own Liquid Applications solution which built compute capabilities into the RAN, "allowing for the rapid deployment of new services and the optimization of service delivery from the mobile edge." Yet, as good as this all sounds, there's a fundamental problem here.

With many parties weighing in on the 5G debate, 4G Americas has decided to throw its hat into the ring with the release of a white paper that makes recommendations on how operators in the Americas should deploy 5G.
A Boston-based firm founded by a group of scientists is building a system that will help operators, government entities and others navigate the tricky world of spectrum sharing in the 3.5 GHz spectrum band, or Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). The FCC has said it intends to apply spectrum sharing to the 3550-3650 MHz spectrum band and is considering extending that service to the 3700 MHz, which would provide a total of 150 MHz of spectrum to CBRS.
A group of researchers from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, and Ericsson is getting recognition for setting a new world record in wireless data transmission rates using a new type of microwave circuit.
This year may be remembered as one of the most transformational in the history of the cable business--and not because of huge pending mergers. While video services are beginning to give way to over-the-top distribution, a big opportunity has emerged in Wi-Fi.
If you thought ultra-wideband technology had joined the ranks of zombies on The Walking Dead, think again. It never totally died; it just got new again.
