“We are first where it matters most,” AT&T’s John Donovan said of the operator’s move to 5G. "The early opportunities are going to be in enterprise."

Nokia expects "quite an aggressive" 5G roll out in the U.S. next year
He said he expects millimeter wave launches in the first quarter, which aligns with how Verizon and AT&T are going-to-market with 5G. T-Mobile US is actively deploying its 600 MHz spectrum, although device availability won’t come until the second half of 2019. And Sprint is deploying its 2.5 GHz holdings with chipset availability expected in Q1, “so they’ll also be upfront there,” Murphy said.

Death by push notification
Social media notifications are incredibly pathetic and unnecessary. There's no good reason to have any social media notifications on. If someone really wants you, they will text you or message you on a chat app. Maybe they'll even call. Facebook notifications -- event invites, friend requests, trending posts -- are nothing but a sad, transparent plea to get you to open the app. I was getting about two of these begs a day, and that was two too many.

Verizon CFO details 5G revenue streams: Home broadband, mobility and B2B
The B2B side is going to be far greater as you go into 5G than it is in previous generations. Because of the massive throughput, because of the low latency and a whole host of the other improvements with 5G, we think, over time, the B2B adoption of applications and technologies using 5G in ways that fundamentally changes how their business is run is a significant upside as well. So you’ve got three major revenue streams versus really only having one of those in 4G and prior technologies. And as we think about the overall 5G model, it’s based off increasing the revenue streams available to us.”

Samsung explains its success with 5G carrier deals in the U.S.
Through our deliberate strategy of focusing on markets and customers that are data-centric and bleeding-edge on the technology side, U.S. operators saw us in other markets delivering features, functionality and scale that gave them pause to say, ‘These guys…can execute in major markets and deploy at scale.'”

To that scale point, Samsung was the single network partner for Jio, which launched a greenfield LTE network in India in 2017. Samsung provided more than 1 million LTE macro and small cells, EPC/MME/SAE core solutions, LTE broadcast systems and self-organizing network analyzers and optimizers.

The physical x64 core count blows away Intel's Xeon compute family, which only just set itself a high-water mark of 48 cores with Cascade Lake AP. Also, that line is still on Intel's 14nm process, whereas AMD is nudging ahead with TSMC's 7nm. AMD also claimed a single-socket Rome can match or outperform a dual-socket Intel Xeon Scalable 8180M setup, when running the ray-tracing C-Ray benchmark, at least.

Growing evidence of Fibre First roll-out from Openreach in Central London | thinkbroadband
A pattern that is repeating all too often is that flats are being bypassed, it may just be that in some cases once wayleaves are granted that they will be re-visited or worse building owners are showing no interest in retro-fitting FTTP.

Equity deal means Hyperoptic is bringing forward its target dates | thinkbroadband

Latest BT Group results show more money going back into BDUK pot | thinkbroadband
Some may spot the Ethernet footprint in the results at 282,000 lines which is higher than the number of FTTP lines (226,000) and a quick glance at the revenue each generates just £12m for FTTP versus £180m for Ethernet could be said to support the theory that says Openreach is not keen to roll-out FTTP as it will decimate the Ethernet revenue. While it is clear that a massive FTTP roll-out will eat into the Ethernet share, what is other overlooked is that Ethernet services have very different service levels, resilience and bandwidth guarantees which are very important if when your broadband breaks you become a loss making business - so while FTTP will eat into the low end Ethernet customer base, it may in time as more of the business market adopt a digital first model actually grow. Reasons to believe this may be the case is the money CityFibre is spending which on its roll-out where the business Ethernet and dark fibre customers are key customers, with the GPON roll-out to residential and the real small business market being the icing on the cake.

BMW has already informed the Federal Network Agency (BNA) — which oversees use and ownership of Germany’s frequency spectrum — that it is interested in operating local 5G networks. Volkswagen and Daimler, the maker of Mercedes vehicles, have done likewise.

In fact, the interest in operating smaller-scale, industry-specific 5G networks goes even wider. BNA president Jochen Homann says inquiries have come in from many industrial sectors: “There’s a gold rush atmosphere about it.”
