5 G : Era of Smart World

Large-scale convergence(LSC),is not about the convergence of different technologies. It is about developing a comprehensive framework that will enable delivering of services as per the requirement of various applications.
According to Boingo wireless’s chief technology officer ,β€œ Beware, convergence is the future! Ubiquitous 5G is not economically practical,without coexistence between Licensed,unlicensed and shared bands. So, we must embrace converged solutions that leverage multiple bands & technologies.”

5G : catalyst for Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 β€” the fourth industrial revolution -which will essentially set the paradigm of Everywhere and Everything connectivity.
Larger-scale phenomena will take different approach to take shape.

How 5G evolve?

Look at nomenclature through algorithmic way :-
1.Greedy approach : solving specify problem.
2.Dynamic approach:generic in nature and addresses problem with a broader vision.

The greedy approach will take place first and will continue with new applications. These approaches will take footage between 2018 and 2022 like 5G in fixed wireless,LTE -assisted network.
While dynamic approach will be the real transformation into a complete system of 5G. That’s why concept of LSC comes .The real period of focus will be from 2020 to 2025.

Technologies that will make LSC possible :-

1.Open Network Automation platform (ONAP)
2.VNFs
3.Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC)
4.3GPP north-bound APIs

Open Network Automation platform (ONAP)

This is an open source software platform that delivers capabilities for design,creation,orchestration,monitoring and life cycle management of virtual network functions (VNFS),carrier-scale software defined networks(SDNs) & higher level services that combines the above.

VNFs

VNFs and SDNs bring the required adoptability. The need is for a right framework for their harmonisation and interoperability. A well-orchestrated network can cater to large-scale abstraction from application demand.

Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC)

This is the kingpin in the facilitation of LSC. MEC brings application-specific affinity in 5G, which will be an application-defined network. End to End virtualisation is required economical & political reasons. So, MEC is defining and placing.

3GPP north-bound APIs

A north-bound API is an interface between an application server and 3rd generation partnership Project (3GPP) system via specified functions in a mobile operator’s network.

FUN FACT ABOUT LARGE-SCALE CONVERGENCE

1.LSC is about making 5G an application-defined network.
2.LSC is about comprehensive E2E approach while setting a 5G network.
3.LSC facilitates required abstraction to address versatile dimensions of various applications.
4.LSC defines the 5G landscape and network slicing.
