Deutsche Telekom Launches 5G Network in Poland With Huawei Equipment

SDxCentral | December 10, 2018

T-Mobile Poland claims to be the first off the 5G starting block in its domestic market, announcing the launch of what it described as the “first fully functional” 5G network in the Eastern European country with the support of Huawei Technologies. The Deutsche Telekom subsidiary said the network is currently available in the center of Warsaw, although plans are afoot to extend coverage gradually throughout the entire country depending on the spectrum licensing plans of the Polish regulatory authorities. T-Mobile Poland said it has distributed the first devices that enable access to the 5G network to select business customers and partners. And it will also showcase applications to visitors at what it has dubbed the #5G_Lab. At launch, the network comprises four base stations based on the 5G New Radio (5G NR) standard, using 100MHz of 3.5GHz spectrum and equipped with 10 Gb/s fiber optic backhaul links. Deutsche Telekom commented that the set-up in Warsaw is similar to that of its 5G test network in Berlin. Worth noting here is that Orange Poland has also just announced testing of what it proclaimed to be the first commercial 5G base station in the country. T-Mobile Poland confirmed that Huawei is the sole vendor supporting the 5G network. Indeed, the China-based vendor is a long-serving network partner of Deutsche Telekom, and the two companies have been collaborating on 5G-network research since 2015.

Pivotal Commware Lights Up mmWave Fixed Wireless Coverage in Houston

Pivotal Commware, Inc. | December 05, 2022

Pivotal Commware, global leader in 5G mmWave infrastructure products for the wireless edge, announces that Pivotal Turnkey is expanding 5G mmWave coverage for a Tier 1 mobile network operator (MNO) in Houston. Pivotal Turnkey provides an end-to-end solution using Pivotal’s mmWave product ecosystem. Turnkey delivers potential fixed wireless access (FWA) subscribers to MNOs at lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) – 25% to 35% the cost of fiber – and lower time-to-revenue. WaveScape® network planning optimizes the placement of network elements -- Pivot 5G® and Echo 5G® -- for a given coverage objective. Pivots navigate mmWave signals around obstacles. Echos penetrate them indoors through window glass to deliver gigabit broadband speed. Intelligent Beam Management System (IBMS) manages and optimizes the repeater network layer. “With Pivotal Turnkey, we can go into any city where an MNO has deployed mmWave 5G coverage for mobility services and use their pre-existing network elements, alongside ours, to light up new FWA services in a few months,” said Brian Deutsch, CEO of Pivotal Commware. “By providing the lowest total cost of ownership for the operator and accelerating their time-to-revenue, we go from FWA-zero to hero in just a few months.” We have worked in the trenches alongside our MNO partners for the past four years, and through the experience believe that no one understands mmWave’s unique challenges like Pivotal does. Only Pivotal’s ecosystem of products and services can offer a solution that begins with proprietary modeling and ends with network launch. With Turnkey, our MNOs get five companies under one roof.” Jay Maciejewski, General Manager of Pivotal Turnkey Services. 5G FWA has been a runaway success for MNOs competing for their share of the $100 billion U.S. broadband market. As data demand continues to climb at a 40 percent compound annual growth rate, keeping subscribers happy will require the higher capacity found at mmWave frequencies, freeing up costly and scarce sub-6 GHz frequencies for mobile users. Deutsch added, “At 500 GB/month, FWA subscribers consume 40X the data of mobile subscribers. Getting them onto the vast available spectrum at mmWave, at gigabit speeds, is a priority.” About Pivotal Commware, Inc. Pivotal Commware develops communications platforms, systems and applications based on Holographic Beam Forming®. HBF antenna technology enables network operators to increase network speed, capacity, and spectral efficiency using the lowest cost, size, weight, and power consumption (C-SWaP) envelope available. Pivotal’s unique mmWave product ecosystem includes Echo 5G indoor subscriber and Pivot 5G outdoor network repeaters, and cloud based WaveScape™ network planning software and Intelligent Beam Management System (IBMS). The company is privately held and headquartered in Kirkland, Washington.

Decentralized Data Solutions Startup Oort Launches Edge Network to Scale Web3 Infrastructure

Oort | November 08, 2022

Oort (formerly Computecoin) is kicking off its in-house edge network, Oort Decentralized Edge Network (DEN), which aims to radically augment the scalability of Web3 infrastructure and pave the way for massive Web3 dApp deployment. Oort DEN will allow developers to easily scale applications on Web3 infrastructure without compromising reliability, latency, and durability. Oort is building its edge network to address the most pressing pain points facing Web3 infrastructure today. "One of the biggest challenges faced by decentralized storage service providers is scalability in terms of the number of users and tasks. "The scalability problem gives rise to other issues, like latency, reliability, and the lack of essential features like google-type file searching. When decentralized storage service providers struggle to meet the industry's scalability needs, it's hard for them to compete with traditional, centralized services. Our job at Oort is to solve these problems by drastically improving Web3 infrastructure's scalability." Dr. Max Li, Founder and CEO of Oort Decentralized networks' nature of limited scalability dictates that most dApps built on those networks cannot provide Web2-comparable user experiences. As a result, dApps today still rely on centralized infrastructures like AWS. Oort DEN strives to help Web3 developers improve their dApps' performance by providing a collection of key functionalities such as SQL database, dynamic resource allocation (storage, compute, and bandwidth), fast file indexing and searching, and content distribution, all decentralized for internet-level scalability. "With our targeted positioning and product-oriented strategy," Dr. Li continued, "Oort aims to onboard billions of Web2 users to Web3 applications and services. We at Oort envision a future where Web3 is widely adopted and used by everyone. That's why we're committed to pushing the limits of what's possible; we want to make this vision a reality." Oort DEN will comprise a large number of Oort's edge node devices (called "Deimos") deployed worldwide. Deimos devices will perform all DEN functionalities at the edge, enabling massive adoption of Web3 applications. Oort is now seeking ecosystem partners to manufacture and distribute Deimos. All ecosystem partners will be carefully reviewed and selected by the Oort Foundation to guarantee the stability and security of the network. About Oort Oort (formerly Computecoin) is a data infrastructure for the next billion Web3 users. Featuring a user-centric design, Oort offers full-service decentralized data solutions that developers and users can quickly master without knowing a thing about Web3.
