  • # e911 calls placed within CT(break into geographic areas); # cell sites built to handle growth?
  • Add site pix of different types
  • Wi-Fi enabled devices = phones, PDAs, laptops, game boys, cars, busses, wristwatches, mp3 players, sunglasses..... Self-healing Self-optimizing Self-configuring Bandwidth constrained only by backhaul, not access (bottleneck goes away) Uses unlicensed spectrum
  • Better Coverage and Reliability Mutual backup ensures at least one network available at any time Accommodates changing environmental conditions Capacity constraints eased Cost-Effective QoS Provides only needed level of QoS for application, no more Delivers QoS over Best-effort where possible, failing back to guaranteed QoS when necessary Maximized Spectral Cost Efficiency Only use licensed spectrum when necessary Squeezes all available capacity from free spectrum at any given moment Least Cost Routing of Voice and Data Packets Dynamic choice of network and route

    1. 1. Connecticut Siting Council Telecommunications Symposium Alternative Technologies for Infrastructure On behalf of T-Mobile USA , presented by Steven Zupp and Laura Altschul March 2, 2006
    2. 2. Wireless Facts: It’s All About Consumer Demand <ul><li>2005 consumer statistics from T-Mobile USA </li></ul><ul><li>Number of text/IM/email messages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>14.9 billion, or, on average, 784 per customer </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Number of times customers used their phone (calls placed and received) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>4Q05, on average, each customer placed or received 341 calls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At that rate, there were 75-80 billion calls placed or received </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- proprietary and confidential - </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. Wireless Facts: It’s All About Consumer Demand
    4. 4. Foot Notes <ul><li>1 By the close of 2005, wireless subscriptions will hit nearly 2 billion on a worldwide basis, with cellular mobile dominating the wireless technology field, according to a trends study from Deloitte Research </li></ul><ul><li>2 Tenth Report, Implementation of Section 6002(b) of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993; Annual Report and Analysis of Competitive Market Conditions With Respect to Commercial Mobile Services, WT Docket No. 05-71, FCC 05-173, released Sept. 30, 2005, at page 73 </li></ul><ul><li>3 BLS Series data </li></ul><ul><li>4 CTIA Wireless 9-1-1 and Distress Calls </li></ul>
    5. 5. Today’s Landscape <ul><li>What is important? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Providing seamless infrastructure, fulfilling e911 mandates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Industry surveys tell us #1 reason to own cell phones - personal & public safety, especially for families </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Surveys also find that coverage issues at home and dropped calls lead the list of specific complaints </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Supplementing existing networks in order to meet customers’ demands and improve use of voice, data and true mobility </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wireless is already integral to everyday living </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Incumbent upon providers to design & build sites to meet rising use of handsets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For 2G, 2.5G, 3G, 4G </li></ul></ul></ul>
    6. 6. Next Generation <ul><li>Let’s not forget another meaning of next generation -- today’s youth will rely completely on wireless </li></ul><ul><ul><li>They will EXPECT seamless coverage - wherever they live,work & play </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And they will vote - from their handsets! </li></ul></ul>How Many Kids Have Cell Phones? <ul><li>46% of 10 to 18 year olds own a cell phone. On average children get their first cell phone at age 14 </li></ul><ul><li>10 to 11 year olds 14% </li></ul><ul><li>12 to 14 year olds 35% </li></ul><ul><li>15 to 17 year olds 67% </li></ul><ul><li>18 year olds 82% </li></ul><ul><li>Source: GfK NOP Technology </li></ul>
    7. 7. A Balanced Solution <ul><li>Why does placing cell site facilities seem adversarial? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Citizens want a voice, providers want to be heard, public officials want to ensure fair decision making, media wants to educate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This is somehow difficult to manage </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>When will we agree: this is all about a balanced solution ? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is above & beyond politics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How should we work together in order to provide seamless solutions? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Balanced solution = best solution for the right location and the right purpose </li></ul>
    8. 8. What Does “Wireless Alternative Technologies” Mean? <ul><li>We’re living a communications evolution - every one of us is a stakeholder & has a responsibility to its progress </li></ul><ul><li>Providers’ technical evolution differs at different points in time - networks are not one size fits all </li></ul><ul><li>Supplement, fill in, reinforce, improve, strengthen - not replace </li></ul><ul><li>“ Towers” is inaccurate/ “cell sites” is correct </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Correcting public perception of the words we use </li></ul></ul><ul><li>“ Alternative” is a misnomer </li></ul>
    9. 9. Types of Cell Sites
    10. 10. Examples of Future Alternative Technical Solutions: Wi-Fi Mesh Overlay Pole-Mounted APs Wi-Fi Enabled Mobile Devices Wireless AP Interconnections Wi-Fi Coverage Area <ul><li>To standalone AP </li></ul><ul><li>To cell site hosting AP </li></ul><ul><li>To cell site with PTP wireless link to AP </li></ul><ul><li>Self-healing </li></ul><ul><li>Self-optimizing </li></ul><ul><li>Self-configuring </li></ul><ul><li>Fat pipes </li></ul>Single, Aggregated Mesh Backhaul

    16. 16. Keeping Our Eyes on the Prize <ul><li>All site types are alternatives </li></ul><ul><ul><li>DAS, flag poles, macro sites, antennas on utility poles, micro cells, etc. are infrastructure alternatives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>All are part of network and community solutions </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Our common job is to serve our citizens, customers & build a consistently reliable infrastructure for emergency services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Everyone wins when we operate from a platform of clear & transparent communications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There is no alternative for trust </li></ul></ul>
