    The 5G Factor: Speedy T-Mobile, Ericsson, Qualcomm, Thales Collab, China and Private 5G, Thumbs up on the Ericsson Vonage Deal, and a Vacillating Elon Musk Loses Allies

    The 5G Factor: Speedy T-Mobile, Ericsson, Qualcomm, Thales Collab, China and Private 5G, Thumbs up on the Ericsson Vonage Deal, and a Vacillating Elon Musk Loses Allies

    In this week’s episode of The 5G Factor, I’m joined by my colleague and fellow analyst, Ron Westfall, for a look at the 5G ecosystem and the goings on that recently caught our attention.
    Our coverage includes some of the latest 5G news, including:
    Ericsson, Qualcomm, and Thales collab. Ericsson, Qualcomm, and Thales are collaborating to take 5G to space — which is pretty exciting. The companies are looking at using satellite driven non-terrestrial networks, or NTN, using low Earth orbit satellites (LEO), to enable this communication capability on a worldwide basis. This will be a game-changer delivering connectivity only for under-served area and hard to reach areas, and providing a solid assist in worldwide military operations, workers stationed in the middle of the sea, remote deserts, dense forests, and other places that are incredibly difficult to reach.
    Each of the three companies are making unique contributions to make this happen. Ericsson is testing the vRAN stack, Thales is ensuring the 5G payload will work for satellite comms, and Qualcomm is is working to ensure the 5G handset form factor will support all these capabilities.
    T-Mobile outruns the competition. T-Mobile aces speed tests – again, and largely performs better than its major competitors when it comes to speed (upload and download), and overall network tests. And not only is T-Mobile winning when it comes to speed tests, it’s also coming out on top as it relates to overall mobile experience, voice experience, and games experience. These kinds of results are as significant for consumers as they make decisions about devices and mobile service providers as it is for enterprises who seek enhanced collaboration experience for their WFH teams and field personnel and beyond.
    Elon Musk might not be winning friends at the FCC. Analysts are discussing the fact that Elon Musk, who likes to whine when things don’t go his way, might be losing support from both Democrats and Republicans with the Twitter games he’s playing. Last week we covered Elon Musk’s (lame) move against 5G, claiming that 12 GHz spectrum will be harmful to his SpaceX Starlink satellites. Analysts are opining that this might bode well for DISH as the primary user of the 12 GHz band, providing service to satellite customers. Watching this shift in sentiment is interesting.
    China isn’t wasting time on private 5G. Thwarted in other 5G-related undertakings, Chinese operators are wasting no time building out enterprise private 5G networks. In fact, they’ve deployed 6,518 private 5G networks so far this year, up from 1,655 just a year ago. Where are they putting those private 5G networks.
    U.S. Regulators Greenlight Ericsson Vonage Deal. Ericsson gets final approval from U.S. for Vonage acquisition. This both diversifies and strengthens Ericsson’s offerings base and is a good thing for customers as well.

    IT/OT Convergence Enabled by Industrial IoT and the Siemens Xcelerator Platform

    IT/OT Convergence Enabled by Industrial IoT and the Siemens Xcelerator Platform

    In this episode of the Futurum Tech Webcast, Interview Series, our conversation today centers on the integration of two worlds in manufacturing environments to achieve digitalization and Industry 4.0.
    In many manufacturing environments there is the physical world, or OT systems, composed of machines and industrial equipment. Then there is the digital world, or IT systems, composed of servers, networking, and other apps to run and process data. Thanks to advances in technology, we are seeing a convergence of these two worlds, but there are still a number of challenges that organizations must overcome. In this episode, I’m joined by Silvio Rasek, Head of Marketing, Factory Automation and Smart Data, Siemens, to discuss common challenges we are seeing with the IT/OT convergence and what Siemens is doing to help organizations overcome these roadblocks and find success.
    Our conversation centered on the following:
    Current trends that are impacting today’s production environment The opportunities that come with connecting the shop floor to IT systems Top barriers to implementing smart factories and complete IT/OT convergence How organizations can overcome these barriers An overview of the Siemens Mindsphere and Siemens Xcelerator open digital business platform that will support the IT/OT convergence This was a great conversation and one you don’t want to miss.
    If you would like to learn more about Siemens Mindsphere or Siemens Xcelerator, you can get more information here.

    The 5G Factor: Battle of the Billionaires; O-RAN Americas Advances; NEC Buys Aspire Technology; and T-Mobile Oceus Partner

    In this episode of The 5G Factor, a Futurum Tech Webcast series focused on news and happenings in the 5G and IoT ecosystem, I’m joined by my colleague and fellow analyst, Ron Westfall.
    Our conversation today covered:
    Elon Musk’s Starlink turning on 5G, protesting (this time) DISH Network’s proposal to use the 12 GHz radio spectrum for a 5G cellular network. AT&T, DISH Network, and CableLabs are among the top U.S. companies and organizations that have stepped forward to handle the O-RAN Alliance’s activities in North America this year. Why that is and what that means. The news of NEC acquiring Aspire Technology was big, and we explored the significance there as we move toward a global adoption of Open RAN 5G. T-Mobile and Oceus have formed a strategic alliance to delivery key offerings to the U.S. Government, starting with the DoD. Why that alliance makes sense, and what they’re focused on.
