Startup Xcom looks to test advanced MIMO using open RAN

Xcom | November 25, 2020

Xcom, the San Diego-based startup made by a few previous high level Qualcomm chiefs, is planning to test progressed MIMO advances running on open RAN interfaces with gear from Baicell in an indoor field in Sacramento, California. The subtleties of Xcom's tests were remembered for a recording by the organization to the FCC. "We've built up an innovation to fundamentally improve the phantom effectiveness of frameworks that utilization sub6 [GHz] range, and this specific recording identifies with our having the option to extend our preliminary framework," clarified Matt Grob, Xcom's CTO and Qualcomm's previous CTO, in messaged reactions to inquiries from Light Reading. In particular, the organization said it's hoping to test how its serious MIMO innovation – a recieving wire plan that has been generally promoted as drastically improving the general limit and execution of a remote organization – contrasts and the current LTE and Wi-Fi networks as of now working in the arena. The organization said its new model radios will be introduced in similar areas as Wi-Fi hotspots, and can uphold countless clients without causing impedance. The organization said its organization will run in the recently liberated 3.5GHz CBRS range band. The improvement is essential as it gives one of only a handful few public experiences into Xcom's exercises. The organization was established in 2018 by a few prominent Qualcomm chiefs, including previous CEO Paul Jacobs, following Jacobs' bombed endeavor to fund-raise for an offer to take Qualcomm private. Xcom last made waves around a year prior when it gained M87, a Seattle-zone organizing startup drove by previous T-Mobile leader Cole Brodman. M87 was dealing with an innovation that would permit standard cellphones to send interchanges from close by clients – for instance, a client somewhere down in the core of a structure, outside of the scope of an organization association, could bob their sign off other close by clients through a work network plan to interface with the Internet.

AT&T and JBG SMITH Unveil Plans to Make National Landing the First 5G Smart City at Scale in the United States

AT&T | July 22, 2021

AT&T* and JBG SMITH, have entered into a letter of intent to deliver the first 5G Smart City at scale in National Landing1. The first network infrastructure deployments are planned for the first half of 2022 and will expand with development of the community. AT&T and JBG SMITH, a leading owner and developer of high-quality, mixed-use properties in the Washington, DC market, plan to work together to deliver one of the most robust network infrastructure deployments in any urban environment. 5G, with local area compute edges, could make National Landing a prototype for smart cities of the future and create a unified consumer experience across asset types. The area could also enhance offerings in mobility and self-driving vehicles, immersive retail and entertainment, and building automation and environmental sustainability. JBG SMITH's National Landing portfolio spans 6.8 million square feet of existing office space and 2,856 residential units, 808 units currently under construction plus 7.2 million square feet of additional commercial, multi-family and retail development opportunities in the district. In addition, JBG SMITH is serving as development partner for Amazon's 4.8 million square foot second headquarters and master developer for Virginia Tech's forthcoming $1 billion Innovation Campus. With such a large and growing portfolio of diverse assets and open spaces in National Landing, JBG SMITH is uniquely positioned to support the continuing roll-out of AT&T's fast, reliable, and secure 5G network. A combination of mmWave and sub6 5G spectrum will be enabled by an interconnected series of building side-mounts, street furniture, and underground network infrastructure. It will blanket this submarket spanning across Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia. AT&T and JBG SMITH envision National Landing as a canvas for smart city innovation in industry clusters such as defense, cybersecurity, cloud/edge computing, internet of things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI). The robust technology infrastructure that is expected, could give businesses, residents, and visitors the opportunity to connect everything and everyone in near real time. These improvements could transform engagement and experiences in National Landing for business and residents. The collaboration should further enhance the environment for innovators that are drawn to the neighborhood's walkable proximity to Amazon, Virginia Tech, the Pentagon, Boeing's East Coast headquarters, and Reagan National Airport. Proximity to Capitol Hill, the White House, and regulators also may give companies an opportunity to showcase how a 5G network and an open, interoperable technology ecosystem can unlock innovation for industry and government alike. AT&T and JBG SMITH have signed a Letter of Intent and expect to sign a definitive agreement in the coming weeks.
