    7. Virtualizing the connected car. Why not?

      Not really virtualizing the whole car, but starting with the head unit. Redbend by Harman looks at the head unit as a central source of computing power resident in the vehicle. As more and more power hungry functionality gets packed into the connected car; it becomes unrealistic to have a dedicated hardware resource for each function. This all sounds pretty interesting, but how will it actually evolve? Likely in stages.

      Huawei demos small cell with LAA and Wi-Fi

      Huawei has demonstrated a small cell running Wi-Fi and LTE in unlicensed spectrum. The demonstration, conducted with NTT DoCoMo, showed Wi-Fi and LAA (licensed assisted access) both operating in the 5 GHz band. Listen-before-talk was used for LTE. Listen-before-talk is a protocol usually associated with Wi-Fi that requires radios to check for interfering signals before transmitting. (While LTE signals will interfere with one another, Wi-Fi signals don’t even initiate until the coast is clear.

      Huawei and NTT DOCOMO conducted a live demonstration of the co-channel coexistence between Licensed-Assisted Access (LAA) and Wi-Fi systems with Small Cell. LAA operated on a 5GHz unlicensed band at the 5G Tokyo Bay Summit 2015 held at the DOCOMO R&D Center in Yokosuka, Kanagawa. With the assistance of a key co-existing technology named Listen-Before-Talk (LBT), LAA can co-exist with a neighboring Wi-Fi system, while maintaining most of the performance advantages of LTE.

      Report: 4G, 5G hype bad for consumers; NFV migration not in the near term

      A new report from IHS found that half of global service providers surveyed have begun to deploy tenants of true 4G networks, however most consumers think they already have access to 4G services, which the research firm said sets a bad precedent. In a snippet from its “2015 IHS Infonetics 4G and 5G Strategies and Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider Survey,” IHS said it found interband carrier aggregation was the most common LTE-Advanced features being deployed by mobile operators, though customers are not getting a true 4G experience. “We are slowly but surely moving to true 4G, and that’s ...
