This is the trend of the future - the processing needs for LTE and beyond are so much higher that the traditional macro base-station architectures are running out of processing capacity. It makes sense to consolidate all the heavy processing into a datacenter connected to a large sea if small cells.
ALU did announce a similar liquid radio architecture sometime back.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
