Re: Smaller is Better
each virtual network you have complete control over the nodes or the line cards or the ports or the systems that are part of your slice of the network and there are two benefits for a single operator. It means you can use a single network infrastructure to run and deliver different services," said Vanhastel.

Re: Smaller is Better
@DonBrowne Thank you for that explanation about antenae. I guess size does matter after all. You sacrifice broadcast range. Well that makes sense.

Re: Smaller is Better
Antenna size is dictated by the freqency of the radio signals, with the higher frequency mandating a smaller size and vice versa. That's why the satellite dishes are so much bigger and those ham radio antennas can be gigantic catching the much lower frequencies. And that's why the terrestial radio antennas for AM radio are hundred of feet tall. And while the antennas can get pretty small, the broadcast range goes down as another consequence of the frequency, hence the short range of 5G.

Re: Smaller is Better
@afwriter The antenna is an eyesore, the windmills I wouldn't think so. Maybe the windmills are noisy and that could be a problem. Let's face it. Antennae on roofs are ugly. Why do you think they all came down in the 60s-70s? Not only that, during lightning storms, the old metal antennae were dangerous if not grounded properly.

Re: Smaller is Better
My Dad's neighbor across the street is a ham radio aficionado and he has a massive antenna sticking out of his house. I always question how he can stand to look at it. I also know there have been a lot of neighbor fights over the installation of private windmills. I can't imagine that a huge antenna would be much different when it comes to cranky neighbors. Plus, you don't want to have to look at a giant thing sticking out of your roof every time you pull up the driveway.

Saves money, saves energy, what's not to like? By the way, I recommend the PDF of the November 2017 report on network slicing, linked in the article.

Re: Smaller is Better
So sick of CableVision that I was actually considering going with AT&T's DirectTV, but the idea of an antenna bothered me. Wish they could make them so they are no bigger than a dime. I use this little ClearTV antenna inside that picks up only 7 channels, but I'm tired of paying the price for CableVision.

Re: Smaller is Better
I'm about to get a fixed wireless antenna installed on my roof. I'm very glad it's not much bigger than a dinner plate.

Re: Nokia is coming back strong
I vaguely recall a licensed Nokia branded tablet prototype device not too long ago, but I guess consumer hardware isn't in the cards again for Nokia just yet.

I don't know many people who would rather have a bigger antenna on their roof. I'm sure these smaller receivers will curb a few neighbor complaints.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
