5G IS HAPPENING LET’S SIMPLIFY

5G Network Configuration and Optimization

5G networks are the new frontier in mobile telephony. They bring significant benefits to users and MNOs but also add Radio Access Network (RAN) complexity with multiple layers of legacy technologies like 3G and 4G. 5G network configuration and optimization can be challenging with complex legacy architectures in play.

We see further complexity and performance challenges in the deployment of femtocells, picocells, and Wi-Fi cloud, network speed, efficiency, and profitability. 5G network design and planning needs greater emphasis and support to optimize cost and performance.

As 5G expands infrastructure and data lakes, Innovile’s solutions simplify and accelerate success.

What is 5G Mobile Network Technology?

What is a 5G network? 5G is the fifth-generation mobile network technology following its predecessors 2G, 3G, and 4G. Like 4G, 5G network technologies build on and enhance OFDM and 5G NR air interface technologies, delivering tremendous benefits like ultra-low latency, high multi-Gbps peak data speeds, and more. 

A key innovation of 5G is its ability to expand the utilization of existing spectrum resources, from sub-3 GHz to 100 GHz and beyond, bringing extreme capacity, negligible latency, and high multi-Gbps throughput. 

For MNOs, these benefits are driving up network resource consumption as more devices become connected, including the massive IoT, unlocking more revenue-generating opportunities while at the same time introducing more complexities to the network management cycle. 

Next-generation solutions like Innovile’s INNTELLIGENT Self Organizing Network (SON) help to harness the full potential of 5G networks by automating and optimizing the deluge of devices as 5G reaches peak saturation. 

What Benefits Does 5G Bring?

5G network technologies reduce network latency to almost negligible levels (sub 1ms), enabling near-instant connectivity in applications like autonomous mobility and mission-critical IoT.

5G network speed can reach over 10 Gbps compared to 100 Mbps for 4G/LTE, creating opportunities for enhanced mobile broadband applications like Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR), autonomous mobility, and enterprise precision technologies.

5G New Radio (NR) and LTE Advanced networks achieve a network reliability score of 99.999% in delivering a stable, low-latency frequency signal in a conventional cellular deployment.

5G networking can support a million or more connected devices per square kilometer of coverage compared to an average of 100K devices for 4G, providing the foundation for the proliferation of IoT and M2M devices.

5G technologies utilize low-band, mid-band, and high-band spectrum frequencies to deliver additional benefits and value, enabling MNOs to extract more value and revenue from existing spectrum resources.

5G networking provides enhanced network slicing capabilities to build fit-for-purpose virtualized and independent networks on top of common physical infrastructure. For example, segregating low-latency applications like mobile broadband from ultra-low-latency applications like driverless cars.

What are the Main Challenges of 5G Mobile Network Technology?

Transitioning Legacy Network Resources

In 5G networking, core and transport domains will be more important than RAN. MNOs transitioning existing 3G and 4G network infrastructure and resources to 5G will encounter unique challenges that introduce performance bottlenecks and negatively impact the overall quality of the network.

Designing, Building, and Managing 5G Core Networks

Unlocking the full potential of 5G requires designing, building, and managing standalone and non-standalone networks with an increased number of virtualized components, greater user density, new use cases, and more overall network complexity. Open RAN adoption will bring both further opportunity and complexity to 5G.

Adding and Configuring an Avalanche of Non-Human Users

5G networks will add billions of new devices by 2035, most of which will be IoT and M2M devices. MNOs need the network design and management systems for 5G network planning, design, configuration, and network optimization to reduce human error, optimize performance and deliver stable and reliable services.

Automating Virtualized 5G Network Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting virtualized 5G networks will create unfamiliar problems and levels of complexity for engineering and NOC teams. They will need enhanced automation to analyze faults, apply predetermined fixes (self-heal) and provide detailed reports to engineers for non-standard alarms.
