An Overview of the 3GPP Study on Artificial Intelligence for 5G New Radio

In this article, we address a critical gap within the existing literature by offering a dedicated treatment of the 3GPP Release-18 study on AI/ML for the NR air interface. This comprehensive contribution enriches the existing works which often confine their scopes to certain areas of the 3GPP study. Furthermore, we also divulge the myriad factors that underpin the process of standardization. Given that the integration of AI/ML within the air interface is a nascent and largely uncharted avenue in the realm of standards development, 3GPP has identified many new challenges and gained novel perspectives during this study. Conveying these learnings from the front lines of 3GPP helps demystify the decisions and is particularly valuable for researchers not directly involved in the 3GPP work.

Ericsson Green initiative for 5G roll outs, helping Vodafone UK.

Vodafone is rolling out Ericsson's new compact antenna to bring greater 5G capacity, coverage and performance to locations across the U.K.   The Ericsson AIR 3218 combines a radio unit and antenna in a single unit. It can also transmit mobile data over all of the frequencies that Vodafone currently uses in the U.K., without needing additional antenna units, as was the case for previous models.

The combined multiband, Massive MIMO design makes it easier for the operator to add more capacity to a mast without increasing its footprint. It's also easier to mount on rooftops, towers, walls and poles.

"5G is the UK's digital future, but we should never underestimate how difficult it is to deliver a future-proofed network at scale across the length and breadth of the UK. Working in partnership with Ericsson, we are constantly exploring new ways to accelerate this transformation, and this is another example of where innovation is delivered through collaboration," said Ker Anderson, head of Radio and Performance at Vodafone UK, in a statement.
