5G Tidal Wave in China and Global Ripple Effects

CAMPBELL, Calif., Aug. 1, 2018 -- Mobile Experts made waves with their unconventional 5G forecasts over the past four years, but it turns out they were on the right track; major OEMs are now preparing to ramp up Massive MIMO in an architecture we predicted. In a new report out this week, Mobile Experts dramatically increases their previous forecast to match the ramp up to 5G that is happening much more quickly than anyone anticipated--based on very strong reports coming out of China

This report is a complete technical and market review of ASIC, FPGA, ADC, DAC, LDMOS, GaN, PLL, and RF components in remote radio heads. The RRH block diagram is shown in 12 different ways to illustrate trends in beamforming, component integration, and distinctions between various bands and applications. Several block diagrams include pricing estimates for each component, to illustrate how integration will save money overall. In the detailed forecast, pricing, shipment, revenue, and market share data are included through 2023.

"For most of the world, 5G deployment will be spread over many years and will solidify slowly over time," commented Principal Analyst Joe Madden. "China is the exception; political forces are driving a huge nationwide deployment at incredible speed. We ran the numbers, and they will surprise most of the industry. We had been limiting our forecast based on capacity issues in the supply chain, but with big recent investments in component capacity, we have bumped up our forecast for 2019."

This new report reveals how China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom will together deploy huge numbers of base stations during the first months of 2019— the first year of deployment. What Mobile Experts has coined the "China Surge" will continue through 2021, when the report shows a return to sanity in step with the rest of the world's more gradual rate of deployment.

According to Mobile Experts, field trials at millimeter-wave frequencies have been extremely successful, and both Verizon and AT&T are underway in building commercial networks. The complexity of mm-wave radios has increased dramatically, so even fairly small networks can result in huge numbers of radio transceivers. Mobile Experts highlights the use of 192T192R, 256T256R, and even 1024T1024R radios breaks down the mm-wave radios separately because of the dollar value for each radio path differing significantly from the lower bands.

"The dollar content for semiconductors per transceiver will drop sharply as we move down to lower power levels in Massive MIMO, but every component on the market will ship in unprecedented numbers, and with new levels of integration. Overall, 5G will increase the dollar content per RRH devoted to power transistors, ADCs/DACs, and processors due to massive MIMO and the wide bandwidth of the 5G signal," commented Principal Analyst Joe Madden.

Boeing to Establish New Aerospace & Autonomy Center

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 1, 2018 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] today announced plans to open the new Boeing Aerospace & Autonomy Center in Cambridge, Mass., becoming the first major tenant of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) new mixed-use district in Kendall Square.

Under the agreement, Boeing will lease 100,000 square feet of research and lab space inside a new 17-floor building at 314 Main Street in Cambridge. The new center will house employees from Boeing and subsidiary Aurora Flight Sciences, who will focus on designing, building and flying autonomous aircraft and developing enabling technologies.

The investment in the new center follows the recent creation of Boeing NeXt. This new organization unites researchers and projects across the company to shape the future of travel and transport, including the development of a next-generation airspace management system to enable the safe coexistence of piloted and autonomous vehicles. Employees at the center will help develop new technologies in support of Boeing NeXt programs.

Through its Kendall Square Initiative, the university will develop six buildings to house a blend of lab and research, office, housing and retail space.

"It's fitting that Boeing will join the Kendall/MIT innovation family," said MIT Provost Martin Schmidt. "Our research interests have been intertwined for over 100 years, and we've worked together to advance world-changing aerospace technologies and systems. MIT's Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics is the oldest program of its kind in the United States, and excels at its mission of developing new air transportation concepts, autonomous systems and small satellites through an intensive focus on cutting-edge education and research. Boeing's presence will create an unprecedented opportunity for new synergies in this industry."

Employees from Aurora Flight Sciences' existing research and development center in Kendall Square will move into the new center and operate it on behalf of Boeing once complete.

"Today, Aurora's Kendall Square team is already building innovative autonomous systems," said John Langford, Aurora Flight Sciences founder, chief executive officer and MIT alumnus. "By expanding Aurora's 30-year relationship with MIT, and working with Boeing, we are creating a collaborative space where engineers, students and researchers can work together to create technologies that will define the next-century of air mobility."

Financial terms of the new lease agreement and development of the new facility were not disclosed.

The new agreement builds on a century-long relationship between Boeing and MIT to advance aerospace innovation. Last year, the company announced its role as lead sponsor of an $18 million project to replace MIT's Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel.

Aurora Flight Sciences, A Boeing Company, is an innovative technology company striving to create smarter aircraft through the development of versatile and intuitive autonomous systems. Operating at the intersection of technology and robotic aviation, Aurora leverages the power of autonomy to make manned and unmanned flight safer and more efficient.

Herta Facial Recognition Stands Out at 2018 Biometric Rally by US Department of Homeland Security

The US Department of Homeland Security, in collaboration with NIST, organized a Biometric Technology Rally in which 11 companies participated. The test took place in March 2018, at the Maryland Test Facility (MdTF), a DHS affiliated laboratory.

In the 2018 Biometric Technology Rally, Herta came out on the top 3 facial recognition vendors, among the highest scores for efficiency, customer satisfaction and performance.

The rally participants were provided with a gallery of 3,000 images of around 300 people, and each contestant was required to match people's faces one at a time as they were going through a facial recognition checkpoint. The test measured the average transaction time, failure to process an image, percentage of satisfied customers and the effectiveness of providing a positive identification within a 5 and 20 seconds interval.

Herta designed a specific solution for this one to many (1:n) test despite its speciality is many to many (n:m) as in some of its main projects to improve safety in safe cities or sports stadiums. The scenario simulated an airport control point where the solution compares traveler's passport pictures from the images captured through the CCTV cameras. Herta used its real-time face identification technology to meet the Rally requirements, and it exceeded the average for most of the metrics as well as the 95% successful face identification rate in less than 5 seconds, compared to an average of 65%.

Alex Collado-Castells, CTO at Herta and responsible for the rally deployment, explained that the test was very successful and it helped to prove how the company's technology stands out among other competitors, and to see what governments are looking for when it comes to a checkpoint solution.

"It was an inspiring experience, where we had to work under pressure in order to design a specific solution for a test which reflects a real world use case." Collado-Castells said. "The test generated very useful metrics which are aligned to the current government requirements and needs. Herta performed excellent at efficiency, customer satisfaction and performance, the three main goals of the Rally."

The 2018 Biometric Technology Rally was the first experiment testing different technology solutions against each other, but more rallies are planned to check future applications of the technology for DHS needs. The results of the 2018 Biometric Technology Rally can be found at http://mdtf.org/rally/.
