Do you see the licensed spectrum will be open to non-telco operator?

Light Beer

When Telcos started to move toward 5G, do you think the CAPEX will increase a lot initially?

Light Beer

No, I think cord cutting will happen only when there is a reliable replacement on the infrastructure.

 

Light Beer

Immediate gratification and personal service.

The Docsis 3.1 push and OWDM will help push us into 5G. The current Gen (4G) has been plagued with a "crowded pipe" due to the forward vs. reverse inbalance that exists on the residential products and services, becoing irrelvant. With the increase in traffic due to streaming gaming services (Twitch) and related services, we have to begin treating the return band with same diligence as we do the forward. Speed coming down the pipe is quickly becoming an irrelevant factor due to the requirment for more data being sent on the return than before. IOT technology and the sheer amount of connected devices has increased exponentially which, in my opinion, is one of the main drivers for network congestion. My second thought on the drive to 5G is to create better End User habits when it comes to data consumtion. Consumers see an increase in cost for services due to the resources being spent to compensate for the amount of bandwidth being consumed. How do we compensate for network congestion once 5G gives the End User access to more. We circle back around to the same issue, a crowded pipe.

great topic thanks for archive

Light Beer

no, cables are a monopoly who could not care less about their customers.  Everyone is looking for any excuse to cord cut

Light Beer

convenience, peer influence....not thinking independently

Light Beer

interesting topic

Light Beer

until next time :) 

Light Beer

Good day to all 

Light Beer

Very very hot with the UpSkill U.

Light Beer

Being Mobile

 

Light Beer

Yes - definite shift away from trend of core cutting

Great presentation

Light Beer

great presentation! thanks

Light Beer

At my company we did a 4G presentation yesterday over a 10 gig fiber feed looked awesome!

Light Beer

Kanata Ontario Canada

Very nice and cool

Light Beer

Wonderful presentation Asfaw!

Light Beer

@daniel -- I will have to look into Sling TV...if they do raise the price, I can't imagine it going up 10fold and perhaps they'll create different packages.

Lightning

How will the new Satelite network apply to these technologies? Will we be using more of them?

Light Beer

i am learning a lot here. thanks. 

Light Beer

great presentation, Asfaw, thanks

Light Beer

Very thoughtful commentary!

Light Beer

@TeleWRTRLiz precisely! although I am worried about them eventually jacking up the price...

Light Sabre

@Asfaw That's really interesting, thanks for explaining the difference! Thanks so much for presenting today!! Listeners - I'll see you back here on Friday at 1pm for Video: The OpenStack Approach with Cisco's Matt Caulfield.

Re: Sling - Opinions?

 

Light Beer

great info. thanks.

Light Beer

Thanks for asnwering my question @Asfaw...appreciate it.

Lightning

The Q about 4.5G and 5G. 4.5G is about spectrun efficiency and may be a little bite about SDN/NFV. 5G will require new air interface desing and SDN/NFV

@daniel re SlingTV...that's what I mean. I am paying almost $200/month for cable and don't watch half the stuff that's on...I'd much rather pay $20/month especialy if I can stream from a device to my TV

 

Lightning

Thanks @Asfaw! Another Q from a listener: i have heard a few times about 4.5 G...what is that and how will it help before we get to 5G?

Blogger

I did not know that!

Light Sabre

Sling TV is available now on Apple TV

Light Beer

I think some of the operators are prepared for the next-Gen

 

Blogger

Good job so far.

Light Beer

Anybody here ever used Sling TV? It's an app that gives you a small package of television channels. I really like it and it's only $20 a month. 

Light Sabre

4% CAGR sounds low...

Light Beer

@Asfaw: Q for Asfaw: Do you believe some current carriers will not be able to make the transition to 5G technology and be absorbed by others?

Blogger

great presentation!

Light Sabre

Thanks. Good presentation!

Lightning

@Asfaw: Q for Asfaw: i have heard a few times about 4.5 G...what is that and how will it help before we get to 5G?

Blogger

Revenue is the main factor for video and streaming.

Light Beer

great presentation.

Light Beer

Thanks for the presentation and good session.

Light Beer

Nice presentation

Light Beer

latency was not covered in detail.

Light Beer

Thank you Asfaw 

Light Beer

It was interesting concept.

 

Light Beer

Thanks Asfaw for an informative session!

Light Beer

Thanks Asfaw and Kelsey for this talk!

Light Sabre

Thank you for organazing this speech.

 

Light Beer

Thank you Asfaw for all your insights and taking the time to share with us today

 

Light Beer

Thank you Asfaw for this very educational lecture !

Light Beer

Q for Asfaw: Do you believe some current carriers will not be able to make the transition to 5G technology and be absorbed by others?

Light Beer

The presentation slid covers all the speech.

 

Light Beer

IOT is in 2nd phase for 5G after mobile broadband. Tata communications in India is basically looking at LORA (non-cellular LPWAN) technology to provide IOT services as I understand.

Light Sabre

Asfaw - thank you for sharing your insights with us.

Light Beer

Q for Asfaw: i have heard a few times about 4.5 G...what is that and how will it help before we get to 5G?

Lightning

how will they address wireless vulnerability?

Light Beer

Thank you for a timely and an informative presentation.

Light Beer

third party developers

Light Beer

Thanks, Asfaw N. Lot's of stuff.

Light Beer

@informat32345 - Agreed

Light Beer

Excellent questions everyone! Coming up on our Q&A

Blogger

It's complicated.  Generational differences will be important.  So will pricing and content. Linear TV will remain important for some kinds of content. On the other hand, we're seeing a strong trend toward on-demand viewing of most kinds of entertainment content.  I don't see a future for traditional bundles, at least including high-cost sports networks. 

Blogger

There's been a lot of talk about apps for video, third party developers that build an ecosystem like Apple. Is that possible for digital video?

Light Sabre

right @informat32345

Lightning

We should be clear that 5G is not a prerequisite for SDN/NFV.

Light Beer

How does TCTS build talent pool for the new network era? how is your own network operations and transformation helping this?

Light Sabre

I think cord cutting will continue, why pay for all content that I didn't watch

Light Beer

Yes, we will see a shift.

Light Beer

Very intresting topic.

 

Blogger

Q for Asfaw: Do you believe the service provider will be the ones providing the security solutions for the IoT boom based on the roll out of 5G or will that be left to the individual users?

Light Beer

No. over-the-top providers will likely keep their prices below that of cable providers to create a competitive advantage

Light Beer

Yes. Cord cutting is over-rated. What people want is a lower bill and lower number of channels. Switching more to IP delivery will help Service providers do that

Light Beer

No shift away from cord cutting. 

Light Beer

I would suggest service providers are moving up the value chain by increasingly providing original content across a number of video delivery platforms.

 

Light Beer

I think cord cutting will continue

Light Sabre

No.  The cord is not going to be competitive.  why pay for a bunch of stuff I don't watch.

Light Beer

Yes, for some.

Light Beer

Cord cutting will continue but the bundles will be more inclusive.

Light Beer

cord-cutting will continue

Lightning

wireless connectivity

Light Beer

Cord churn will be the norm

Light Beer

Yes, Wireless spectrum has limits.

Light Beer

No, it will be increase on both sides.

Light Beer

Yes - cut the cord! cable tv bundles are wayyy too expensive 

Light Beer

Price and convenience

Light Beer

Until there is high speed pt-pt wireless connectivity - no time soon - homes still need a high speed Internet connection that will deliver OTT services, and the traditional telcos and cablecos that deliver this connection will still put forward worthwhile bundles to support that wired Internet connection (POTS, IPTV, Security, etc).

 

Light Beer

No - the cord cutting trend will continue

Light Beer

What is the adoption rate of network virtualisation/SDN in TATA's own production networks?

Light Sabre

Video effects capacity and requires low latency.How do the existing Networks and new technologies like 5G mm wave technologies manage this ?

Light Beer
yup, all of above
Light Beer

Good one @gnean and @hh !

Blogger

Your slide 16 mentions that there must be coordination among industry and other organizations to define a unified 5G network architecture. Do you then foresee future business partnerships or even mergers among industry players?

Light Beer

good question @gnean....

Lightning

Q: Could we expect a new method of network intrusions such as Trojan horses via video?

Light Beer

Slide 17 Poll Q: YES

Light Beer

5G would require more spectrum?

Light Beer

Q for Asfaw: How much smaller is the range of signal strength for 5G?

Light Beer

All of the above.

 

Light Beer

Convenience. Millenials have their mobile devices following them wherever they go and they want to be engaged without compromising the content.

 

Light Beer

Cost & convenience

Light Beer

All of the above but most have the capability to cast to the TV when a larger screen is needed/desired anyway using both devices simultaneously.

 

Light Beer
Poll question: it's what they are used to ... expectation is to be able to access content any time, anywhere.
Light Beer

When you can pay less than $20 per month for great video content on Netflix and such, I begin to wonder why I'm paying for cable TV still.

Lightning

But I would say that Millennials use Casting (Google, Apple, etc.) a lot as well. They may access the content through the phone of tablet, but they may actually be viewing on a TV screen

Light Beer

Does slide 14 mean service in Subways too?

Light Beer

Anywhere, anytime and any content availability on any device.

 

Light Beer

Answer to poll question - Mobility. Young folks can't sit still long enough to watch stationary TV.

Light Beer

Convenience - easy accessibility and always ON and Cost - than a traditional TV bundle which is seen as costly

 

Light Beer

Q for Asfaw: Do you believe that 5G will be rolled out first for IoT applications prior to regular mobile video applications?

Light Beer

all of the above, plus whenever they want instead of certain period of time

Light Beer

Convenience and cost. As millenials age, and their financial situaion improves, I would suggest millenials with look to the quality of experience a large screen can provide versus the eye strain the small screen will induce as their eyes age....

Light Beer

Convenience, content and immediate gratification. I think millennials (and everyone else) really want to be "in the know" at all times.

Light Beer

They have there mobile everywhere.  Not always in from of TV.  

Light Beer

All the above, but immediate gratification seems to be the most important factor

Blogger

All of the above

Light Beer

Some vendors (e.g. AT&T) are already starting to implement Software Drfined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).  It is expected to be in production with 5G networks.

Light Beer

All of the above

Light Beer

all of the above

Light Beer

All the above.

 

Light Beer
@teleWRTRliz - that was already supposed to happen as the Baby Boomers age, back before smart phones & home computers. I bet the need for eye doctors probably grew for genx too :)
Light Beer

All of the above

 

Light Beer

Time schedule and immediate gratification

Light Beer

All of the above

Light Beer

Attention span is down to 10seconds. Quantity over quality.

Light Beer

Immediate gratification

Light Beer

immediate gratification

Light Beer

Q for Asfaw, is there any way for service provider to avoid just being the pipe for the content providers -- it seems that it's going that direction

Lightning

convience and cost!

Light Beer

Cost & convenience

Light Beer

Convenience - everything on one device/screen!

 

Light Beer

All of the above.

Light Beer

Inability to commit to time frames.

 

Light Beer

All the above

 

Light Beer

immediate gratification

 

Light Beer

Immediate gratification.

Light Beer

Who are the vendors Tata Comm is working with for setting up its SDN/NFV platforms

Light Beer

@Business I thought operators wanted more and more traffic to flow on their networks. The "Stop the usage" days are gone.

 

Light Beer

Slide 11: Why Issue 2 is speciic only to small cells, what about backhaul for pico/micro/macro cells?

Light Sabre

If the video usage is being driven by Google (YouTube), Facebook, and Netflix, what do the operators get from this traffic? How would operators monetize this in order to pay for the investment to support?

Light Beer

what protocol is used in 5G?

 

Light Beer

What type of platform will 5 g be using?

Light Beer
@ashu @teleWRTIz - lots of lagging and buffering going on here. :) I need coffee!
Light Beer

I thought CDMA was discontinued?

 

 

Light Beer

@Gnean, good one. I also wonder if eye doctors and the sale of glasses and new frames is going to increase.... i just got back from the doc and my prescription keeps going up.

Lightning

@gneagodov-What do you mean by changing world demographic? Is it that as the world becomes older,we use less services including Video?

Lets face the facts-North America,Europe,China,Japan,Korea

and Australia are alll ageing super-fast now.

Lightning

Q: Quantity over quality. Will the price of the 50" 4K TV drop in price, given that people are using tiny screens to watch movies?

Light Beer

Q for Asfaw: Considering the skyrocketing growth, are service providers doing enough to be ready?

Lightning

When do you believe a standard will be reached for 5G? AT&T is partnering with Nokia and Verizon is partnering with Korea Telecom on 5G trials and working toward a standard. How does the standard get set? Will there be different flavours of 5G?

Light Beer

10 fold by 2020....? is 5G going to be enough?

Lightning

I am surprised the Global SIM card growth isn't much higher than this to accomodate IoT?

Light Beer

Would we need to wait for 5G to see more IoT deployment? 

Light Beer

Q: Will the mobile usage drop off given the changing world demographic?

Light Beer

demand for mobile video is only going to increase....my kids watch video only on their tablets now....or the stream from the tablets to the TV

Lightning

@faryl-Me too! All fuzzy and sluggish today.LOL!

Lightning

from what i gather only 20X from LTE-Advance of 1GB to 5G of 20GB

 

Light Beer

@Faryl...slow brain LOL!

Lightning

Latency is important on Video and streaming. I like he is mentioning the latency.

 

Light Beer

Q: Are these videos short clips, or movies and streaming video?

Light Beer

Great questions everyone!

Blogger
@Ashu I'm working from a pretty slow brain today :)
Light Beer

5G will deliver 100 times 4G speed?

 

Light Beer

Just heard the terrible news at Ataturk Airport in Turkey;Really sad to see what the world is coming to today.

Lightning

@Tele-Thanks! means a lot and much-much appreciated! This is going to be a great session!!!

Lightning

How much of an increase in pricing would customers see with 5G?

Light Beer

Interesting topic

Light Beer

Hi @Mjackon, good to see you on the chat!

Blogger

Next-Gen technology will take wireless phones, gaming and how we communiccate as a whole, to a new level.

Light Beer

@jayakd0. Thanks for the reply. You have a point about the perceived culture of constant travel. I don't know whether that is an actual part of the demographic, or a stereotype. 

Light Beer

Listener Poll Question 2: As Over-the-top service pricing starts to increase and cable providers offer new mobile video bundles, do you think we will see a shift away from the trend of cord cutting? 

My response: If cord cutting was driven by economy and competition, then I'd have to ask whether competition will allow unfettered price increases.

Light Beer

@JohnGordon: Millenials are always on the go, so can't hold onto the 80 inch monster :)

 

Light Sabre

Let me get my answers to the poll questions now before I have to go.

Listener Poll Question 1: Why do you think more and more Millennials prefer to watch mobile video rather than on a traditional TV screen? Convenience, cost, content, immediate gratification, all of the above, or something else?

My response: I would guess part of the reason is peer pressure to show technological fluency.

Light Beer

Hi everyone - we'll be starting in about an hour! In the meantime, you can download the slide deck for today's presentation in the "Special Educational Materials" section above the live chat window.

Blogger

Thank you, Kelsey. I may have to listen to the playback later to get the answer to that question, and to hear everyone else's questions.

Light Beer

@Ashish: Starts at 10.30PM IST (time in India), don't fall asleep, seems a big  spread (on video) is being lined up by LR team :)
