Re: And this means what w/r/t broadband? You can probably approach a gigabit down over 3.5GHz. So there's that. What he is suggesting is that rural America is not going to get high band 5G anytime soon.

And this means what w/r/t broadband? When it comes to providing gigabit broadband, the biggest US telcos are downplaying wireline connectivity in favor of promises of gigabit wireless connectivity someday. What does this mean for their ability to make good on those promises?

Battle Zone 2.0 It makes complete sense to go for lowee frequencies for coverage prospective, Also Google etc are trying hard to utilize this band. So do we see bright light for neutral Management GWs such as Federated wireless?

Re: And why does Nokia want to compete directly with Chinese vendors? He didn't actually say he would, but Nokia seems to be pushing ahead with LTE at 3.5GHz. Does it make much sense *not* to offer 5G gear at 3.5GHz.

And why does Nokia want to compete directly with Chinese vendors? "Murphy suggests that 3.5GHz is becoming a de-facto option for low-band 5G. Europe and CHina are almost 100% confirmed for N42 and N43 [3.4-3.6GHz bands]," he says.

Since China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE: CHL) can encourage the development of a 3.5GHz-based silicon and hardware infrastructure by itself, that makes the availability of low-cost 3.5GHz chipsets much more likely."

So Nokia and Ericsson will be competing against Huawei and ZTE in low-band 5G market segment in Europe and China. Look that how well that turned out in the current LTE market, where Huawei and ZTE are getting richer and richer while Nokia and Ericsson are getting poorer and poorer.

Samsung is shielded from a bloody price war with Chinese vendors because China has no plans for mmwave 5G thus Chinese vendors have no plans to compete in the mmwave market segment.

This is why Nokia's future looks bleak in 5G era Samsung does what Nokia can't. Docomo confirmed in its press release that Samsung was the only vendor ever to have demonstrated a long range mmwave connection over a vehicular speed of 93 mph.


DOCOMO's 5G Drive Gains Momentum in Trials with Samsung and Huawei

TOKYO, JAPAN, November 16, 2016 --- NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today that in a joint trial of 5G technologies with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., it has successfully achieved a data speed of more than 2.5Gbps with a mobile device that was in a vehicle travelling 150km/h, thereby verifying the feasibility of stable connectivity for 5G mobile devices in fast-moving trains.

The trial took place on November 7 in Fuji Speedway, a motorsport racing circuit in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Transmissions were conducted using the 28GHz high-frequency band, one of the candidate bands that the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications is considering to designate for commercial 5G networks in Japan.

To date, no test had achieved a successful wireless data transmission to a fast-moving device due to the large path-loss of high-frequency radio signals. In this trial, however, the problem was overcome with massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technologies that incorporate beamforming, which concentrates radio waves in a specific direction, and beam tracking, which adjusts the beam according to the fast-moving mobile device's location.
