    TOT and MBB Spectrum Requirements TOT and MBB Spectrum Requirements Presentation Transcript

    • TOT and MBB Spectrum Requirements Peera Pacharintanakul, Ph.D., TOT Plc 4 October 2013
    • VisionTOTMobileMission To be a leading telecommunications operator that closely responds to demands of its customer and the general public in both economic and social aspects. • To provide telecommunications services with innovative and timely response to customer requirements • To sustain information assurance for national security • To enable information and public service availability of the people with quality, equality, and accessibility in compliance with economic and social conditions • Thai citizens have access to TOT 3G (2100 MHz) network which covers almost the entire country • TOT customers can access the highest speeds on the latest devices, tablets, and smartphones • HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access Plus) 42/11 Mbps in Bangkok and Metropolitan Area • HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access Plus) 21/11 Mbps upcountry
    • Investment Benefits on National Economy • Increase Broadband Coverage • Reduce Telecommunications Cost • Improve Service Quality • Extend Access to ICT Services • Enhance Quality of Life Network Rollout Plan • Made on the criteria basis of population density, gross provincial product per capital, and current penetration rate of existing service providers to maximize revenue generation opportunity while minimizing risk. TOT Vision on 3G
    • Smart Thailand • Expand broadband coverage to 80% of population by 2015 and 95% by 2020 • Require ~ Bt80 billion investment of Backbone and Backhaul Smart Network • Smart Education, Health, Government, Agriculture, e.g., Smart Card, Smart City, etc. • In 2010, E-transaction in Thailand circulates ~Bt1.2hundred trillion • Require collaboration among government agencies Smart Government • Business Matching • National e-Business RegistrySmart Business • ICT AcademySmart People ICT is an important driver towards a stronger economy, social equality, and environmental friendliness
    • 5 Smart 3/4G Smart Network Decreasing the digital divide Smart Govn’t Public service Smart Biz ICT-enabled Biz • 80% network coverage by 2015 • Reduce the nation’s over-investment • Free Wi-Fi • Deliver an efficient, effective, and accountable government for the people it serves • Minimize the service costs and time • Support SMEs in ICT industry • Build confidence in e- transactions • Promote e-content and applications • Increase ICT skills in the labor market • ICT literacy? TOT Support to Smart Thailand
    • Smart Network Capacity Integrity, Availability, Authenticity, Confidentiality Multiple devices support / M2M Technology, Coverage Network Quality • To provide internet connection to 76 provinces countrywide, all 10,000 local communities, 15,000 hospitals, and 70 per cent of poor farmers • The roll-out of TOT mobile network will be a key driver to improve the government’s ICT infrastructure
    • Sustainability Society • Foster a customer centric quality for sustainable growth and long-term profitability • Bridge the business-technology-people gapReduce economic gap and social divide TOT Support to Smart Network
