The first post-pandemic Big 5G Event was held in Austin, Texas in late May 2022. Apis Training was there, talking to customers and listening to speakers from the industry. With up to five parallel tracks, it was impossible to cover more than a fraction of the interesting sessions. Still – these are some of our […]
We are excited to inform you about our next Webinar. This time the webinar is about Private 5G: The Next Level of Connectivity! Will you be there on the 20th of September? Daniel Person is our guest speaker, more about him and the topics of the webinar, are below. You’ll also receive access to the […]
As the evolution of 3GPP system continues, there are more and more 5G network deployments all over the world. The latest generation of the mobile system offers technological possibilities for a range of new services and applications: higher connection speeds, more Internet of Things devices and applications, Augmented/Virtual Reality, smart factories, vehicle communication with other […]
A few telecom generations ago, Radio Access Network (RAN) equipment was typically provided by a quite small number of telecom equipment manufacturers. There was Ericsson, Nokia, Huawei, Siemens, Alcatel, Lucent, Nortel, Motorola and a few more. Although there were standardized interfaces – by ETSI/3GPP – from BTS to BSC (in 2G) and Node B to […]
Mobile operators have been expanding their customer base for a few years now, providing connectivity for an ever-growing variety of services and applications. Internet of Things, Augmented/Virtual Reality, smart factories, communication between vehicles – all of these create new business opportunities. However, in this new connected world, the transportation of voice calls remains the basic […]
Edge computing is a concept that: European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is leading standardization activities around Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC). MEC provides compute and storage resources for applications geographically close to the end users. This enables high-bandwidth, low-latency access to services. Real-time radio network information can be used to optimize and adapt the services to […]
Among the numerous Network Functions defined by 3GPP for the 5G System there is a very interesting one – the Network Data Analytics Function (NWDAF). With it the network and user monitoring, traditionally handled by proprietary monitoring tools, becomes native to the 5G.
The 5GS System (5GS), just as the previous mobile telecom systems, consists of the Access Network (AN) and the Core Network (CN).
In the 3GPP terminology the database that stores subscription-related data has been called a User Data Repository, UDR, for quite some time now. The very same acronym – UDR – also appears in the 5G environment: as a database for the 5G-specific information about the subscriptions.
Here in Sweden we are not as legally locked down as in a lot of the rest of the world, but we are expected to practice physical distancing out of self-interest and social responsibility.
