5G-data is a utility

AR and AV both : As it’s not about smart cities but smart civilian too.

Someone recently have invoked my long waiting intention to think and write about augmented reality or AR, but as always and this time too, I think beyond the boundary of the subject, I became interested in something  better to say “Augmented Virtuality” too, may be term is not there or not so common but I just crop it up. As both AR and AV for me two side of same coin.

Once I went to see auto fare at Greater Noida, India, and there I saw a cheeta (not tiger) was roaming on one of the pavilion next to one of ours, and I could see it through the television installed there.  I hurried up to go there, surprisingly without fear as it was roaming amid people there, as one of the visitor trying to find limousine. It all was on the video being displayed on the TV set installed there, so I jumped into that pavilion to find that fellow. What I found there later, almost 2 year later, I came to know I was experiencing AR.

Now astonishingly on the same auto fare, I happened to find a stall, in one of pavilion of Maruti cars , for a virtual drive with actual steering, break and jerks. That was then just a game for me, but later I came to know that is AV.

Some people also have given name like MR, which is mixed reality of more a less AR+AV. It’s all about marrying computer data with actual data in real time so that user take them seamlessly.
This in technological term have widespread advantage, like for controlled simulations, step by step synthesis, hit-n-trial analysis, prediction and many such things.

This may play a very important role in socio-economic skill developments. With Smart City we need smart civilian too. This required both AV and AR.

I take two examples here , as use cases ….

Those who have the privilege to drive in Indian roads must have felt that street lights at the crossroads are not sufficient, we need a traffic policeman there. In many busy crossroad we find few traffic policeman also, may be 3 or 4 in number, but often we feel we need as much there as the no of cars want to cross i.e. each for everyone, are you laughing….

AR can do this obviously with other support of the technology, like connected car etc, but it is possible to find your own traffic police man, not only at crossroad but every moment of drive.

Now turn to other side…….

If we want to have a virtual drive and have the real terrain. We can improve on cuts, turn, mileage of vehicle, too with virtual traffic. But this is all the game, we can enhance it with real traffic control i.e. you have to bear real money for the wrong turn, your vehicle might be confiscated and you need to spend real money to go forward.  This is not real only for the provider but for the agency from government who control traffic law and will be providing a certificated of Excellency in driving, may be with levels A-B-C etc.

So it’s not about smart cities but smart civilian too.

Data is the Electricity

The data is next electricity,  it is going to flow to all your appliances and in your surroundings . 5G is a technology, which have the vision of sort, that it will address the networks in way, such that those are going to handle enormous applications, which influence almost every part of our life, same the way electricity does.

5G is not about a data connectivity only, it is about to make data a utility, which going to lighten up every industry around, our house holds, street, vehicles, transportation, health, education, and so and so….

The technology is continuously evolving and setting the disruption to re-think and re-imagine our new challenges. We are ready today with high performance computational power, giving us freedom of abstractions, and we are there with virtualization of our ideas, or re-imagination of network architecture or data centers.

Some of such achievements have come up with names, like Cloud Computing, Software defined networking, Virtual network Functions, etc. These felicitations for abstractions are going to help us, to create the infrastructure, in a way to address our upcoming or foreseen challenges, and that is where gist of 5G lies.

For access of such infra, we need multiple types of medium and techniques, and there is the requirement for a large scale convergence at the access in terms of access infrastructure. Radio for wireless access is being advancing with new spectrum, and even spectrum re-farming is underway. Also technology is incorporating dynamic spectrum allocation for scarce spectrum. Industry has focus on millimeter waves, above 24 GH spectrum, and also below 6 GH as for Novel radio.
Bringing this to everywhere, in terms of everywhere connectivity is something we talk about IOT, which is ,more a less, re-imagination of M2M or MTC kind of advancement in telecom arena.

This all provide the capability to connect anywhere with a required bandwidth, for data to communicate, and also with a kind of infrastructure, those are highly available and flexible to cater the fluctuated demand.

The new architecture will have salient advantages as for their management, operation, and deployment etc.

The network will be provided as per the demand and requirement of hosted application, they are in fact, defined by the application and there would be end to end slices of the available infrastructures for the sake of hosting the application demand, in terms of capacity, latency, bandwidth, availability etc.

5G is about to explode with so many stuff being accumulated and we are at the top of it. That’s a beginning of new era in terms of connectivity everywhere.

Convergence at access - A 5G approach.

Its really exhilarating to hear from experts what your are pleading since long for next generation network evolution, like convergence of various radio access and unified core
"" and "".
Most enthusiastic is WiFi and LTE coming together as I always said like husband and wife.
