Vehicle to Everything (V2x)
26 Jul, 2018 2 PM - 3 PM UK Time (London)
After attending this webinar, you will be able to understand the upcoming Vehicle-to-Everything (V2x) feature as defined by 3GPP with evolved LTE architecture and new interfaces. Discussions on V2x use case scenarios, user discovery, authorization, security with sample call setup and basic concepts are also included.
3GPP supports Vehicle-to-Everything solutions using LTE advanced networks to save precious life and vehicle assets from accidents and raise alarm about impending disasters, both natural and manmade, to vehicular services. V2x services provide new avenues for mobile network operators to boost their revenues by efficiently utilising the ubiquitous LTE coverage and realising its true potential capacity and throughput. V2x features support pushing user packets to/from fast-moving users in neighbourhoods that include other moving vehicles, pedestrians and network infrastructure (announcement and infotainment).
3GPP Release 14 standards introduce V2x services in both unicast and multicast mode to provide flexibility to LTE network operators to optimize available resources and support both critical emergency services on time and other non-critical commercial applications.
Network Slicing in 5G
15 Feb, 2018 2 PM - 3 PM UK Time (London)
After attending this webinar, you will be able to describe how network slicing, as proposed by 3GPP, delivers different services across 5G networks.
This webinar also summarizes the architectural changes in 5G networks to support network slicing.
NGMN has described certain target services, like enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC) and Massive Internet of Things (mIoT), that the 5G network should be able to support. In order to deliver these services, 3GPP has proposed several specific components in their 5G network architecture. Network slicing is one of those components, and provides logical virtual network slices for diversified services by leveraging the technology of SDN and NFV.

5G Features Standardization and Status
06 Jul, 2018 2 PM - 3 PM UK Time (London)
This year, we are at the cusp of 5G commercial network deployment. 5G technology is expected to vastly improve latency performance as well as enable very high throughput. 5G supports three main categories of services – enhanced Mobile BroadBand (eMBB), ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communication (uRLLC) and massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC) – using innovative features like Network Slicing (NS), Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), Cloud RAN (C-RAN) and service-based architecture. Several standards bodies and institutions are playing a vital role in the evolution of the 5G ecosystem. Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-T) are defining spectrum use, access and requirements for 5G. The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is currently standardizing 5G features in coordination with the European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI), the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), and several others.
This webinar focuses on 5G features and their standardization status. It also covers the different architecture frameworks and the contributions of the various standards bodies and institutes. Finally, it will introduce and examine some 5G use case scenarios.
Demystifying NB-IoT Performance
22 Jun, 2018 2 PM - 3 PM UK Time (London)
The Internet of Things (IoT) dominates the telecom market, where machines exchange data for intelligent applications. The requirements of the devices and networks that support IoT, such as low power, low cost, low mobility, and long battery life, pose unique challenges. To address these challenges, several solutions have been proposed in the Radio Interface.
NB-IoT technology is one of these solutions being commercially deployed across the globe.
After attending this webinar, you will be able to describe the E-UTRAN KPIs in NB-IoT networks as well as the procedure to troubleshoot performance to achieve market-specific designed KPI targets. This webinar will present an approach to auditing NB-IoT performance by demystifying 3GPP-defined Layer 3 messages.
