China, Telecoms, South Korea discussed on 7 Layers
We explore a different layer of the technology that connects our world from the literal wires in the ground to switches and routers and all the way up to the exploiting amount of smart devices that surround us. I'm your host Connor Craven Studios Associate Editor at Sdn Central in our last episode. We gave the basics. What five G is and how it works. It is a complex multi-faceted and according to the Central Editor Matt Capco a considerably over hyped technology. This week is the second in a two part series of five G. Networks in this episode. We're going to answer the questions. What is the current satisified networks? What are some five use cases and Howard telecoms going to monetize five G. following that we are joined by the president of Five G. America's Chris Pearson to discuss the five G. Market and use cases? G America's is a five G. dedicated industry trade organization made up of telecommunication service providers and manufacturers is impossible to deploy a mature G. Network. All at once. Has He talked about in the previous episode. Five years really out in stages as such the five G. Deployment Status of every major telecommunications company Telekom is in constant flux across the globe telecoms are racing to build better five G. networks to play them fester improve out the modernization model in this section. I'm going to look at a few countries. Telecom sector leading the charge including China South Korea the United Kingdom Germany and the United States. While this is not a comprehensive list of every country in telecom developing five G. networks. It will give you a good overview of the global landscape and general state of deployments in trials and be sure to check the episode transcript for links to resources for those of you who really want to fall down the rabbit hole of five. G. Market landscapes as of this recording. Only one of these countries mentioned has auctioned off the high frequency millimeter wave spectrum. This is significant because the military spectrum is the frequency range newest five G. networks provides high in dense urban areas plans by the other countries in the list to do so in early twenty. Twenty it disrupted by the Cova. Nineteen pandemic which country has completed their action. Well you'll just have to listen to find out. Let's start with China. According to the Chinese state run news agency Shenhua. China launched the world's largest G. Network on October thirty first two thousand nineteen this is significant because according to analysts at the firm Jefferies as well as GSM a the number of people in China subscribe to five G. will grow from one hundred ten million to six hundred million between twenty twenty and twenty twenty five. That would equate to about forty percent of the entire global five market in twenty twenty-five the largest possible because the three largest Chinese network operators China Mobile China Unicom in China Telecom agreed to cooperate in building Vijay Infrastructure China Unicom and China. Telecom are also sharing bands of five G. frequency spectrum. Let's go a little deeper cooperation between the three on building infrastructure. Each of the telecoms were responsible for deploying. A portion of the total number base stations needed to hit the mark of the largest five-day network collectively three telecoms deployed almost eighty six thousand. Five G base stations as of November twenty nineteen. Because the three work together on this the time it took to have the largest network was reduced entering China into the five G. Race however as of this recording they have yet to utilize the high frequency millimeter wave spectrum. A key element of five G. networks. The rapid ramp-up of infrastructure was accomplished despite the efforts to hamper China's spivey progress from the United States and other countries as Chris Nicholl a principal analysts that he g was quoted in an SEC. Central article quote any other time. I would say that this effort in China is really pushing the five G. development forward globally but with the Chinese vendors being hampered in the global market Nokia Ericsson. Samsung are buffered in the United States against Y and Z. T he added. I'm still hearing reports. That hallway is about a year ahead of the other vendors in key areas such as massive multiple input multiple output antennas in radio performance. But the are behind on V. Ran. So you need to pick your position on leadership and quote. China may have the largest five G. Network South Korea may have the most advance according to a December twenty nineteen report from open signal the network performance of both escape telecoms in Korea Telecom's five networks surpassed five G. networks in nearly all other countries for example escaped telecom at the time of the open signal report had download speeds of sixty nine point eight megabits per second L. G. You plus and Korea Telecom the other telecoms reviewed had download speeds of forty eight point one and forty seven point three megabits per second respectively. Moreover both providers have portions of their networks. That are on five G. standalone infrastructure. In case you've forgotten from last episode of five Stanley Infrastructure is one that does not rely on four G. Network infrastructure. All of this is being done without millimeter wave frequencies as they have not been auctioned off by the South Korean government beyond the technical aspects. South Korea also lease land market adoption. South Korean customers have been buying five network services more than any other country according to research from IHS Market Publishing September. Twenty nineteen stores could not keep five G. capable devices in stock in South Korea additionally. Ihs Market reported that it only took sixty nine days for South Korea's five G. providers to reach one million five G. subscribers citing the greater variety of phones leading to a more rapid growth of the five G. market between nineteen reports summary South Korea's.
