5G is the latest mobile network which is currently being deployed worldwide,
stimulating many interesting discussions about the technology and its use
cases. It has promised an increase in wealth creation opportunities due to its
ability to provide wider network coverage, reliable network connections and
faster data transfer.
5G creates completely new use cases for consumers and industries and is intended to improve quality and usability. The networking and interaction of billions of devices will become a reality in the near future. On the basis of this, the security requirements for end users, devices and 5G infrastructure will increase massively.
The growing diffusion of the 5G network promises to lead to the development of new business models, as well as new ways to use these models. Reply wanted to concretely test the potential of Cloud Gaming and, above all, the promises of the network that is expected to forever revolutionise our way of life, not just of game play.
In the common perception, the most important benefit brought by the new 5G technology is the higher data speed. However, many ignore that 5G can be exploited to address a much more critical challenge, that is the reduction of the network latency.
Latency specifies the end to end communication delay, measuring the time between the sending of a given information and the corresponding response.
Network Slicing promises to transform what was a ‘best effort’ network to one which holds more reliability.
The basic concept is the ability to build logical (virtual) networks, called “Network Slices”, on top of shared physical resources by providing them as a service to support diverse use cases with distinctive characteristics and requirements.
Reply leverages Data and Analytics to gain insights into the development of the Coronavirus pandemic and how it impacts society, consumers and industries. This report focusses on the changes in the Telecommunications sector.
Over the last few years, there has been an increase in connected devices and a growing trend towards interactive media. High-band spectrum provides the anticipated leap in data speed, capacity, quality and low latency promised by 5G.
Diffusion and availability of new technologies are required to transform a city in a smart city, contributing to reach high level of urban sustainable development and improved quality of life for its citizens. The adoption of 5G will provide the performance boost required to integrate a massive number of devices in a cost-effective way and move from research to commercial services.
One of the core features of 5G services is the Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) which focuses on the high speed of end user data and system capacity.
5G technology, in combination with other technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), IoT, 3D printing and more will change the way consumers live today in industries as well as societies overall.

SDN and NFV are set to change the networking industry and, as part of that change, virtual Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) is an upcoming technology paradigm that promises to be beneficial for both customers and service providers.
The difficulties faced when implementing network services continue to present a challenge to organisations, both from an organisational perspective, as well as from a technical perspective. This document provides direction on how organisations can deal with the challenge of introducing service chaining and deploying critical network services by using the emerging technologies of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV).
Technologies such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) are sparking numerous innovations in the networking landscape. One of them being Telco-over-Cloud, which can be directly applied to the Mobile Telco architecture to remove its current limitations, making it more cost-effective, flexible, powerful and easily scalable for the future.
