it's a joke
it's totally a joke to use mmWave for cellular networking.

Re: Nothing to see here...
And I don't guess reworking the way networks are initially designed is going to be nothing for either operators or the consumers of said 5G services either.

Re: Nothing to see here...
Naturally, and we don't yet know how bckhaul capacity might factor in at some point too. I'm trying to give myself -- and hopefully others -- a relatively simple baseline to work from.

Nothing to see here...
The reality is it's complicated. I touched on these issues in my recent Heavy Reading report "http://www.heavyreading.com/details.asp?sku_id=3539&skuitem_itemid=1763".

Range of 100-200 M has been discussed by the researchers going back to Ted Rappaport's early papers, so nothing new there. The AT&T blog post doesn't really tell us anything we didn't already know. The Verizon disclosures are more meaty, but still vague once you get into them. Qualcomm and Samsung have published more substantial data.

Here's how vague: 100-200 M between the cell site and what? High (attached to a macro) or low (attached to a lamp-post)? What propagation environment/best channel model?  Line of sight, near-line-of-sight, non-line-of-sight? Outdoor-outdoor or outdoor-indoor? If the latter, through what and at what angle?

No doubt that the engineers at AT&T, Verizon and their vendors have gained a lot of data from these trials. They just haven't shared any of it, that I'm aware of. I'm hoping that they'll say more at the upcoming Brooklyn 5G Summit.

Loaded, unloaded?
Of course, not of this yet takes into account of a loaded network, but we won't have a real sense of that for a while yet.
