TECHNOLOGY ACROSS TELECOMMUNICATIONS, WEBSCALE AND NEUTRAL CARRIER FOR 150 NETWORK OPPERATORS
Telecommunications network operators (TNOs) continue to face slow revenue growth, rising labor costs, and high network capital expenditures (capex). The cost of powering and maintaining networks are also challenges. To cope, telcos are digitally transforming their operations, restructuring their physical asset base, and learning from the Webscale world. Webscale network operators (WNOs) have grown to be among the world's largest companies, and are investing in a range of markets with network needs: connected cars, remote health care, drones and more. WNOs spend big in the cloud, and are pressuring traditional supply chains through their support for open networking, direct work with the ODM/EMS sector, and self-designed chips.

Ericsson Prioritizes Digital Infrastructure During COVID-19 Pandemic

Ericsson | May 21, 2020

Mobile telecommunications company Ericsson has advised countries and telecommunication companies to invest in strengthening their digital infrastructures. Ericsson’s network design and optimization response helps service providers handle the changing traffic patterns to sustain high-performing connectivity through a multi-pronged approach. Ericsson presented how the company is working with telecom service providers to manage their networks and face continued changes in traffic patterns during uncertain times. Mobile telecommunications company Ericsson has advised countries and telecommunication companies to invest in strengthening their digital infrastructures during the coronavirus pandemic due to the surge in the use of network-based communication and collaboration tools. Head of Networks at Ericsson Middle East & Africa Chafic Traboulsi during a webinar said efforts to safeguarding and strengthening key digital infrastructures should be key priorities in unforeseen realities as the world is currently experiencing.“During these challenging times, service providers are focusing their attention on solving the myriad of challenges that have been created or exacerbated by the pandemic,” Traboulsi said. It’s critically important to ensure that service providers consider the importance of planning and optimizing their networks. He stated that Ericsson’s network design and optimization response helps service providers handle the changing traffic patterns to sustain high-performing connectivity through a multi-pronged approach which covers an immediate network uplift, planning and dimensioning and a virtual drive test. Traboulsi explained that safeguarding and strengthening key digital infrastructures as well as enabling the continuous development of the underlying technologies such as 5G, IoT, Automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be crucial enablers as service providers emerge from the crisis.

Traboulsi explained that reduced mobility forced by lockdown in different countries has changed utilization patterns and caused a high concentration on suburban areas. “Sony reported $21.34 billion in revenues for its game division, with $2.87 billion of operating income,The PlayStation 4 has reached 100 million units sold to date and 94 million monthly active users. ” Fixed and mobile telecommunications networks have experienced major shifts in traffic as more lockdowns mean a decrease of data traffic in urban areas and an increase in suburban and residential areas,” Traboulsi said.He said the lockdown puts a dramatic day-long pressure on home connectivity due to work-from-home, online education and other areas has contributed to the largest share of increased traffic being absorbed by the residential networks.Other factors that have contributed to higher bandwidth demand according to Traboulsi includes videoconferencing, gaming and streaming on major social media networks and video streaming platforms. He stated that 5G can deliver better user experiences even with increased Mobile Broadband (MBB) traffic and enable new gaming experience and applications usage through use cases such as remote classroom environment with Virtual Reality (VR) and holographic interaction for remote workers. On the other hand, Artificial Intelligence and Automation, he said, will be essential to restart the supply chains through manufacturing process automation in connected factories, reducing human exposure risk in transporting goods through connected fleets and self-driving trucks along with a lot of other applications. “Some of these new and improved solutions will play a key role in saving lives, while others will help save businesses, support public health and welfare services, and ease recovery after the crisis. It has made it easier to see beyond the efficiency-related, economic benefits of digitalization and recognize its broader benefits to society and humanity as a whole,” Traboulsi said, Traboulsi said the webinar was Ericsson’s way of staying close to customers and supporting them in managing capacity and performance in the crisis situation.

As Infrastructure Improves, 5G Expansion will Sustain Fiber Optic Cable Demand Throughout the 2020s

Freedonia Group | July 15, 2021

According to a recent Freedonia Group analysis, demand for fiber optic cable will rise 3.0% per year to $3.6 billion in 2025, with investment in infrastructure to enable the rollout of 5G networks being one of the main growth drivers. In addition, continuous increases in data traffic in residential and commercial settings and increasing penetration of last-mile fiber will also contribute to progress. 5G Rollout Expands Across the US The commercial deployment of 5G in the United States started in mid-2019 and will be substantially expanded in 2020. By the end of 2020, about 75% of the US population was living in areas with at least some 5G coverage, and this number is expected to exceed 80% by 2021. However, 5G networks are still undeveloped, and it is estimated that only around 10% of mobile devices in the United States will be 5G enabled by mid-2021. Thus, significantly more investment will be required before 5G networks can operate at an acceptable level for rollout. Impact on Fiber Optic Cable Industry Densification initiatives, in which many small cell nodes are built and linked to larger networks, will be the primary driver of fiber optic cable demand in 5G networks. In densely populated regions, it is expected that 5G networks will eventually include dozens, if not hundreds, of cells per square mile, all of which will need the use of fiber optic cable. While the 5G deployment is anticipated to be a significant continuing source of fiber optic cable sales in the future, it is not expected to generate especially fast short-term growth: Small cell network construction is a costly, labor-intensive operation that is unlikely to be completed in a short period of time. Instead, these networks' construction and improvement will continue throughout the 2020s. Furthermore, the maturity of the traditional telecommunications backbone sector will somewhat offset 5G-related gains.
