  • As early macro network deployments of 5G start the heavy lifting of serving increasingly common unlimited data packages, the discussion about the optimal approach to meeting capacity and in-building demand comes back into focus. The perennial dilemma emerges; the latest Wi-Fi offering, or a new generation of 5G capable small cells. It doesn’t have to be this way… The multitude of deployment models, the multitude of applications for wireless, there’s room in this boat for two. By exploring network deployment scenarios, device capabilities and emerging industry sector markets, the small cell SIG aims to convince you that the Wi-Fi vs small cell debate should be dead.

  • 5G-CLARITY puts forward a beyond 5G architecture for private networks, which features a novel access network integrating 5G, WiFi, and LiFi, compute and transport resources, and novel management components to enable AI driven network automation. Based on this architecture, 5G-CLARITY will define communication services that deliver measurable enhancements with respect to the eMBB and URLLC services defined by 3GPP in Release 16, in terms of low latency, area capacity, reliability, and accurate positioning and synchronisation capabilities. In addition, 5G-CLARITY will develop a management plane featuring SDN/NFV components together with an AI engine that will automate network management by receiving high level intent policies from the network administrator.
