If you’ve been involved in the design of cellular technology, you know what complexity looks like. Protocols and standards stacked atop each other like so many wobbly building blocks. That it all works together is a testament to careful specs, careful design, and careful timing. Today, 5G is all the rage, and this time it will be no different – in fact, it’s going to be even tougher. 5G promises to be the go-to solution for many more applications compared to prior generations. So expectations are high – meaning that, yet again, specs, designs, and timing will have to be carefully planned and implemented for the promises of 5G to be met.
