Intelligence Brief: How is 5G changing network ownership?

Article | June 9, 2022

5G necessitates a different network strategy. Unlike previous generations, 5G deployment is not only about adding more sites and increasing backhaul capacity. In fact, it is more about rethinking the whole network architecture to make it agile. The high capacity requirements of 5G will necessitate the use of small cells in cities and areas of high footfall (such as airports) to complement national macro networks. Private networks (for example to sell into enterprise customers) and the concept of a neutral host (such as for sports stadiums) are further examples of diversification.

5G Needs Edge Computing to Deliver on Its Promises

Article | February 11, 2020

Edge computing will be a key enabler for 5G to deliver on its bandwidth and latency requirements. In the short term, it can enable developers to provide a “5G experience” at scale. In the long term, it will be necessary to optimise customer experience for real-time, data hungry applications. Telecoms operators have reported that 5G in the lab can deliver network speeds that are more than twenty times faster than LTE1. But, this does not reflect the experience of the average user. And 5G roll out in many countries will be limited in terms of coverage and capabilities for several more years, given that the ultra-low latency standards will only be revealed in 3GPP’s Release 16 later this year. This is why it is likely that, for 5G to deliver on its promises, it must be coupled with edge computing.

AT&T Launches Nationwide Location-Based Routing with Intrado

AT&T | May 11, 2022

AT&T* is the first provider to use location-based routing to send cellular 9-1-1 calls to the proper 9-1-1 call centers throughout the country. AT&T can rapidly and reliably determine where a wireless 9-1-1 call is originating from utilizing device GPS and hybrid information to route the call to the appropriate 9-1-1 call center, also known as public safety answering point or PSAP, with this new "Locate Before Route" tool from Intrado. A device can be identified and routed within 50 meters of its location using location-based routing. Prior to this introduction, wireless 9-1-1 calls were routed based on cell tower position, which can cover a 10-mile radius. This can result in delays in emergency response, particularly when a call is placed inside PSAP border regions where state, county, or municipal borders overlap. Kurt Mills, Executive Director, Snohomish County 911 said that "We share a busy border with King County and are thrilled with the significant decrease in 9-1-1 transfers. We know that 9-1-1 transfers delay emergency response and the winner here is our community. We very much appreciate the public-private partnership between our agency, AT&T and Intrado that allowed us to be the first in the nation to implement this new routing technology." Chris Sambar, EVP, AT&T Network said that "Providing our customers with reliable connectivity and high-quality service on America's largest wireless network is what we strive for everyday at AT&T. Launching this industry-leading public safety solution allows us to ultimately help improve the connections and efficiency for our wireless customers by offering more accurate service when making emergency calls." Location-based routing is a significant accomplishment for public safety. I'm proud of our collaboration with AT&T and look forward to continued innovation with them as we combine our technologies for the benefit of public safety – doing the right thing for the right reasons." Jeff Robertson, President, Intrado Life & Safety Presently, 68% of Americans do not have a landline at home. Nearly 50 years ago, when AT&T collaborated with the FCC to build the first 9-1-1 systems, communication technology was vastly different, with landline phones dominating the market. And today, mobile devices account for 80% of 9-1-1 calls. With the enormous rise of wireless connections and mobile 9-1-1 calls, AT&T is adopting this public safety network feature to ensure that when an emergency occurs, the public has the same quick, accurate, and reliable connection to PSAPs whether dialing from a mobile device or a landline phone. AT&T is leading the road to safer communities by providing the most accurate solution to eliminate wireless 9-1-1 call transfers beyond what the FCC expects carriers to do now. This is particularly critical in an emergency situation when lives are at stake.
