Data is the new electricity. Smart cities, smart factories, smart hospitals, autonomous vehicles and trillions of connected things will all require reliable data connections putting an enormous stress on the capacity of existing networks.
The demand for immersive and interactive multimedia experiences from remote surgery to mixed reality to peer-to-peer video communications will require new data connectivity paradigms that stretch the capabilities of existing network architectures. e.g., ultra low latency along with extreme data rates.
Realizing the true capabilities of 5G will make the power consumption of existing networks blow-up (for example, massive MIMO, diverse frequency bands, carrier aggregation). To make this progress sustainable, signal processing efficiency needs to be improved by using smart adaptable algorithms and RF efficiency needs to be improved by adopting intelligent energy saving measures.
Aira is fundamentally re-imagining the Radio Access Network (RAN) stack, by embedding machine learning into every layer to deliver the required performance improvements in a sustainable manner. By using machine learning, Aira is able to make networks intelligent and self-evolving and ensure that wireless resources are used as efficiently as possible.
