The name "chicken" has its origins in a game in which two drivers drive towards each other on a collision course: one must swerve, or both may die in the crash. The driver who swerves will be called a "chicken".-- Wikipedia
The demand for mobile data is spiraling as we all consume more and more services, especially video. Did you know that video now makes up more than 70% of the traffic traversing the network? This traffic explosion has put immense pressure on current networks. Perhaps this is one of the reasons that ~40% of services providers have already announced that they intend to roll out 5G networks.
The field of artificial intelligence (Al) has tickled human interest for decades. It began in earnest in the mid-20th century when a group of scientists and programmers presented the world’s first true “artificial intelligence program: the Logic Theorist”. Since then, top scientists and practitioners have proven repeatedly how we can teach computers to do human tasks.
So MWC is behind us :-). And the telecom industry can breathe again, or at least we all hope so. Every year it seems to me that the industry officially launches itself at MWC – and perhaps with good reason. After all nearly 108K visitors attended this year. Maybe not as many as the organizers hoped, but definitely up from 2016.
The current state of the mobile network isn’t as clean as you might hope, as marketers push the benefits of the latest and greatest 4G LTE technology and upcoming 5G capabilities. In fact, adapting to the mobile network evolution is a messy proposition that even the most advanced service providers can struggle with.
Despite the flashy promises of advanced 4G LTE and 5G networks, service providers must find more effective ways to improve service quality across multi-generation mobile networks.
