The introduction of 5G, or fifth-generation wireless technology, has made browsing and streaming over mobile phones quicker. It has promoted the adoption of the internet of things, (IoT) where machines and appliances — such as white goods, automobiles, health monitors and classrooms — connect to the internet with near zero lag time. This next generation of wireless connectivity is a virtual cornerstone for critical 21st century opportunities as they relate to economic growth, health care, security, education, employment, transportation, entertainment and a lot more. These new networks and technologies have enabled high speed, low latency wireless broadband services, and innovations a reality that till now was a figment of the human imagination.
5G networks success is dependent on three critical components: Spectrum, Infrastructure, and Backhaul. The FCC in the U.S. has adopted various measures that have paved the way of next-generation wireless technologies. The steps initiated are:
• increase the amount of spectrum for 5G networks and services
• reduce the barriers to wireless infrastructure deployment
• ensure the availability of nationwide backhaul
The availability of high frequency bands and millimeter wave signals that traverse in narrow and straight lines tend to bounce around buildings in a dense urban environment, making it challenging to connect while mobile, this is overcome by changing the infrastructure landscape which uses widespread deployment of small cells. 5 G allows for frequency reuse and dense local networks. The availability of high frequency spectrum has opened much bigger parcels of spectrum in the 200 MHz, with the networks being able to increase traffic capacity per user to gigabits instead of megabits. Channel capacity available to a provider is larger as one who supports both high speed connections to mobile end users as well as backhaul on demand. This enables dynamic provisioning of the fixed wireless transport to the closest fiber interconnection point, resulting in a faster and versatile deployment of small cells.
Decisions by the FCC have fostered innovation in the unlicensed spectrum for accessibility of 5 G among smaller private broadband networks. Spectrum sharing among federal, satellite and terrestrial wireless have given an opportunity for 5G to proliferate to all corners of the country.
Our expertise in RAN – has propelled us to provide multi layered cloud-based services to network operators and broadband providers. For operators to provide high speed services at a low cost in a competitive environment, an architecture that accommodates macro networks, small cells and in building. Both Licensed and unlicensed spectrum to meet enhanced capacity demand use either license assisted access (LAA) or LTE – WiFi (LWA) aggregation. With the advent of billions of IoT devices requires seamless access across an operator’s infrastructure. All of this in 5G is made up of a common core supporting multiple access, multi connectivity, and aggregation, all possible due to a dynamic RAN architecture.
A successful solution encompasses, the core, RAN and operations support system all bundled together with a customized approach. Network solutions are provided across a number of distributed locations or centralized sites. The RAN service originates from a point, whereas the core services are distributed using edge computing. Operators and broadband providers are increasingly adopting the Cloud to gain widescale efficiencies in innovative services, cost optimization and nimbleness. Telco cloud is a combination of core deployment and encompass RAN virtualization.
As a first transitory step, centralized RAN (C-RAN) adoption is common, leading to an optimum RAN virtualization in the long run. 5G drives the need to delivery high quality of service (QoS) and multitude of applications, the impact off which are:
• Higher throughputs compared to macro cells
• Extreme service requirements, make it difficult to sustain a consistent service experience across multi layers
• Massive bandwidth required by Wavebands (mm) in MIMO
• Enhanced dependency on cloud and distributed data centers for RAN, scaling from real time to high coverage apps.
• Increased architectural flexibility embedded in 5G
Ensuring a robust and stable platform for Digital Growth, communications providers, broadband operators will have to be “Nimble in structure and “Change Agents” -reinventing their core assets with the likes of NFV/VNFs, C-RAN, Hosted VNFs with benchmarking), will propel them to deliver and be the backbone for – 5G, IOT and Smart applications . We have developed our resources for this and the future needs of our customers.
• Constant pressure on costs, margins and automation, have driven us to reskill our resources in Network Design, deployment and operations.
• Customers face the challenges of Multi-Vendor/Multi technology, Big data and our ability as a partner to overcome these challenges with optimal solutions.
• Delivering results that go above and beyond the customer satisfaction in – implementation, automation, operations and quality of data.
• Mapping the tools to the OSS/BSS requirements in 5 G networks

Enterprise Mobility Solutions (EMS)
At TG, EMS is the set of people, processes and technology managing:
• Mobile Devices
• Wireless Networks
• Mobile computing services
As enterprises adopt more sophisticated technology and a diversity in end user equipment like smartphones, tablets and other data and computing devices, managing and securing this at the enterprise level is critical for business success.
The goal of EMS is to determine how available mobile IT should be integrated with work processes and objectives, and to support workers when they use these devices in the workplace.
Mobile devices are easily misplaced, lost or stolen. Confidential or proprietary data on these devices are vulnerable. Enterprise mobility solutions are a set of systems designed and implemented to prevent unauthorized access to enterprise applications and/or corporate data on mobile devices.
Our Solutions include:
• password protection
• remote wipe technology
• Biometric scans
An adoption of which allows an enterprise administrator to delete all data from a misplaced, lost or stolen device.
