Its project with Microsoft, which was announced last week, will mark the Taiwanese company’s first 5G private network deployment after nearly three years of effort. The aim is to build mobile 5G base stations that can be used in rescue missions in extreme scenarios, such as when an earthquake knocks out normal telecom communications, according to the two companies. The base stations can connect with low-orbit satellites to enable wireless communication.
I highlighted this write up because private 5G networks will be a game changer for the “edge computing. I reckon that micro-cells will profoundly impact the way we access the data – much like the fibre deployment to homes, and will be a cost-effective solution for remote areas.
In traditional set ups:
For 4G networks, telecom equipment providers like Huawei or Ericsson bundle base stations, the core of the network, with their own RAN equipment, which allows for data transmission between the base station and end-user devices. This model leaves telecom operators with little flexibility in terms of choosing providers or customizing their networks.
Let’s see what future becokons!
