5G and its potential applications are an exciting technology for a number of reasons, and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently announced an auction for wireless spectrum that could speed the deployment of this technology. A faster auction will allow for the benefits of faster connectivity to reach consumers more quickly. 5G is exciting not just for its potential to provide faster service and more connectivity on wireless networks, but also as the potential backbone for many emerging connected technologies such as various smart home devices and autonomous vehicles. Already consumers can see benefits of this new technology, such as improving safety and connectivity at the Super Bowl, and wireless companies such as AT&T and Verizon are planning to offer 5G nationwide by the end of year.

Intelligence Brief: How is 5G changing network ownership?

Article | February 12, 2020

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.

At about 9.30pm on Easter Monday, in the small Dutch town of Almere near Amsterdam, the fire brigade was called to put out a blaze at a large telecoms mast—the second fire of its kind that night in the area. Though neither of the Almere towers were equipped with any of the latest 5G telecoms equipment—in fact one was designed only for use by the emergency services—authorities soon concluded that the fires were perpetrated by vandals acting in the name of an unusual theory: that 5G networks have contributed to the coronavirus pandemic.

Why we need a new approach to network energy efficiency

Article | March 11, 2020

Our recent report about breaking the energy curve offers a blueprint for service providers to evolve their networks towards nationwide 5G while lowering energy consumption. In doing so, service providers can achieve something which historically has never happened before. They can finally break the network energy curve. Today’s mobile networks already consume a considerable amount of energy at a global energy cost of USD 25 billion. As we move ahead into 5G, the energy stakes look set to get even higher.

The next phase of Tableau Partner Network helps customers accelerate data transformation

Article | June 24, 2021

The next phase of our newly redesigned Tableau Partner Network is officially here. Originally announced during the Global Partner Summit at Tableau Conference 2019, and launched in September 2020, we built the Tableau Partner Network (TPN) to enable our global ecosystem to meet evolving customer needs and deliver exceptional customer experiences. The Tableau Partner Network is an analytics-focused ecosystem that complements Salesforce’s partner ecosystem. With this latest phase, we’ve unlocked new partner branding to showcase our partners’ commitment and expertise. Customers now have a more transparent view of the commitment and quality level of Tableau’s partners by business model track (Reseller, Services, and Technology) and performance level (Premier, Select, and Member), as well as by country groupings versus a single global qualification. These changes make it easier for customers to find and confidently work with the right Tableau partner, knowing they meet Tableau’s standards and are local if desired.
