    23:56 - Sprint sues AT&T over 5G branding

    Sprint sues AT&T over 5G branding
    FEBRUARY 8, 2019 / 6:18 AM
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-sprint-at-t-5g/sprint-sues-att-over-5g-branding-idUSKCN1PX1JV

    "(Reuters) - Sprint Corp sued AT&T Inc late on Thursday, saying it was misleading consumers into believing that they were using fifth generation or 5G wireless network, a technology that has not yet been widely deployed.

    AT&T customers were seeing “5G E” logo on their mobile devices in over 400 markets. Even though users are still on 4G network, AT&T is calling it 5G Evolution, Sprint said in the lawsuit.

    5G can offer data speeds up to 50 or 100 times faster than 4G networks.

    Smartphones running on both Android and Apple’s iOS platforms are sporting “5G E” for AT&T customers, even though those phones are not equipped to support 5G.

    Sprint said that a survey showed 54 percent of AT&T’s consumers believed their “5G E” network is the same as or better than a 5G network and 43 percent said if they buy an AT&T phone today, it would be capable of running on 5G.

    “We will fight this lawsuit while continuing to deploy 5G Evolution in addition to standards-based mobile 5G. Customers want and deserve to know when they are getting better speeds,” AT&T said in response to the lawsuit.

    5G Evolution and the 5GE indicator let customers know when their device is in an area where speeds up to twice as fast as standard LTE are available, AT&T said.

    AT&T's Chief Executive Officer Randall Stephenson said in an interview here with CNBC that the company's customers are seeing an increase in speed and performance on the "5G E" network and this is a step required to get to "ultimate 5G".

    Last month, Sprint said it plans to release 5G smartphones with Samsung Electronics Co Ltd in the United States during the summer, while rival Verizon Communications Inc in December also disclosed similar plans for the first half of 2019."

    How Samsung is Bringing 5G to the World | Samsung 5G Base Stations & CPEs | Demo | Digit.in
    Digit
    Published on Feb 28, 2019
    Samsung has shipped 36K+ base stations featuring next-generation 5G RF chipsets. Samsung says these chipsets reduce 5G base station size, weight and power consumption by 25%.
    These base stations feature a smaller DAFE along with smaller 28GHz & 39GHz RFA chips, and smaller RFB chipsets as well. Samsung has commercially deployed 5G in North America with Verizon and Sprint. In Korea, all the 3 main operators there have also rolled out 5G services with half the country covered already.

    In this video you will see both Below-6Ghz and Above-6Ghz Base Station offerings from Samsung.

    For the Below-6Ghz Multiuser MIMO 5G base station, speeds on 4 real 5G phones being shown in this demo were between 690 Mbps and 760 Mbps approximately with the base station clocking an approximate speed of 2.9 Gbps. India is considering making below-6Ghz 5G spectrum commercially available.

    You can also see a 64-bit base station that Sprint is using commercially currently in Chicago to provide 5G services. The 64-bit base station also allows the operator to allot half of the bandwidth to 4G and the other half to 5G devices. This is called LTE-NR Dual Mode Support.

    On display is also a 32-bit MIMO unit but for a higher 200Mhz bandwidth which is more powerful.

    For Base Stations above 6GHz, Samsung provides Multi Carrier Aggregation.

    Apart from the larger base stations, Samsung provides a number of smaller CPE's and other connectivity devices that allow 5G to be deployed commercially in all kinds of environments.

    What do you think of Samsung's 5G Base Station and CPE product offerings? Let us know in the comments below.

    Read more about how Samsung will provide 5G NR solutions to sprint for commercial 5G rollout in the US:

    Here's What An Autonomous 5G-enabled Smart Store & Smart Kiosk Will Do | Demo by Intel | Digit.in
    Digit
    Published on Feb 27, 2019
    Here's what an autonomous smart store - basically a popup shop that's 5G enabled - will look like in the future according to Intel.
    The idea is to make a more frictionless experience possible for the consumer. To enter the retail space, you take your 5G enabled mobile phone, scan a QR code and you're in. Then you don't need to scan any of the items. Just pick up what you want and walk out. Whatever payment information you have saved in your profile will be automatically charged. You don't even need to take out your wallet from your pocket. So no lines, and it's super-easy for the consumer.

    For the retailer, the cost of operations may be lower since this could be a store without any staff. Intel says that technology is advanced enough that if you try stealing something by slipping it into your bag, it will be detected and you will be charged for that item.

    Intel does this by using AI and computer vision to track and assess both consumers in the store as well as the individual items on the shelves. They are not using RFID technology so moving products from one shelf to another won't result in you being accidentally charged. Only if you leave the store with the product will you get charged.

    5G will have the bandwidth and low latency to allow for such a popup store to be hosted virtually anywhere as long as there's signal strength there.

    For example, at music festivals, or conferences like MWC. Cloudpick, which is Intel's partner in this, already has 30 such autonomous stores in China.

    The other 5G enabled retail experience that Intel is showing is their Smart Kiosk. Again, the Smart Kiosk uses AI and computer vision to capture your profile and help cater it's in-store services to better suit you and your needs.

    So if you are frustrated for example, the Smart Kiosk would be able to read your expressions and alert someone in the store who may then be able to come and resolve your issue, before you erupt in the store!

    What do you think of the 5G-enabled Smart Store and Smart Kiosk? Let us know in the comments below.


    How 5G Will Improve Your Extended Reality (XR) Experience | Demo by Qualcomm | Digit.in
    Digit
    Published on Feb 27, 2019
    Here's how Qualcomm will leverage 5G to create immersive, high-end Extended Reality (XR) or AR experiences. 5G's high bandwidth and low latency allows fast linking - edge computing via the cloud to take the computing load off the XR device.
    This demo uses a 5G base station that transmits the 5G signal via cable to a 5G phone that's a prototype used for testing. This phone then connects to a high-end headset with 2K displays and camera sensors.

    The headset doesn't do any computing but sends the data the sensors capture back to the phone which in turn, sends this data via 5G to a cloud server that actually does the high-end graphical rendering.

    Once the data is rendered and the images created, these are then sent back from the cloud server to the phone, which does some further processing and transmits the processed image into the headset.

    The final prototype would simply be a headset and a 5G phone. Then the network operators would offer VR as a service. This could also fit into an all-in-one form factor where the phone fits into the headset and acts as the display.

    So what do you think? Eager for Vodafone-Idea, Airtel and Jio to start offering VR as a service over 5G once it launches in India? Let us know in the comments below.


    Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) Technology for 5G Spectrum Sharing | Demo by Qualcomm | Digit.in
    Digit
    Published on Feb 27, 2019
    Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) is a new technology that allows data transmission from multiple antenna points at the same time over a 5G network running on a specific unlicensed spectrum band, say 5ghz in this example.
    According to Qualcomm, while this does require a central unit along with additional touch points, it's very feasible to setup in indoor locations or private networks like offices, factory, hotels and other private and public places for example. This demo uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 5G modems and the data is streaming in live from Qualcomm's San Diego warehouse where this has been setup. This 5G technology allows gains from 2X to 4X depending on how many modems are deployed and what the settings are.

    Coordinated Multipoint can work also when 2 separate networks are created in the same place and CoMP allows both networks to sync and talk to each other in ways not possible before.

    Another key benefit according to Qualcomm of CoMP is that there are enough antenna's left over to create spatial separation in additional directions. This could be beneficial for unlicensed spectrum and can allow network operators to get more out of the existing spectrum. In layman's terms, it means more devices could probably connect to the same network and there should be a better overall experience along with the expected increase in speed that 5G promises to bring.

    This CoMP technology is still in the research phase and has yet to be proposed to be included in the next 5G standard. What do you think of this technology? Let us know in the comments below.

    BRITAIN’S FIRST 5G COURT CASE AND THE PEOPLE WON
    12/10/2018
    https://www.smombiegate.org/britains-first-5g-court-case-and-the-people-won/

    "Mark Steele, a 5G campaigner, has been highlighting the dangers of a secret 5G rollout by Gateshead Council where residents are complaining of increased illness and Cancer in the affected area. There’s enough evidence to conclude the new smart 5G arrays on the top of new LED lampposts emit Class 1 Radiation frequencies and should be treated as a danger to the Public.

    Gateshead Council ignorantly rebutted clear evidence and created false allegations on social media posts and printed leaflets stating that Mark Steele is spreading Pseudo Science and that the arrays are not dangerous or 5G:

    “Please be assured that there is no scientific basis or credible evidence for any of these scare stories about street lights causing cancer and other illnesses.”

    They misused Police Powers to gag Mark Steele and yesterday he left a free man and Gateshead Council to fork out £11k of taxpayers money to cover the court cost amounting to woeful ignorance. In Court, none of the Council Officers could explain what 5G is; and their leading Government expert refused to attend the Court hearing.

    In conclusion, the Judge refused to gag Mark, stating:

    “The public have a right to know.”

    Mark Steele, a 5G campaigner, has been highlighting the dangers of a secret 5G rollout by Gateshead Council where it’s apparently already causing Cancer and and illnesses in the affected area. Gateshead Council said:
    “Please be assured that there is no scientific basis or credible evidence for any of these scare stories about street lights causing cancer and other illnesses.”
    They used the Police to gag Mark Steele and yesterday he left Gateshead Council to fork out £11k court fees to their legal team; and none of the Council Officers or their experts could even explain what 5G is. The Judge refused to gag Mark, stating:
    “The public have a right to know.”
    The secret 5G rollout issue in Gateshead is now officially of public interest and will be treated as a landmark case for other people to start using this Court’s ruling to challenge their Councils. We know Surrey, Westminster and Luton all have these 5G capable arrays installed on their new LED streetlights. We now know even if these arrays are currently 2G, 3G or 4G they can be 5G enabled by fitting a 'lens' that 'focuses' the frequency.
    Councils are struggling at the moment, over 50% are almost bankrupt because over half of their resources are being spent on the increase of Adult Social Care, so any supplier proposal with the promise of more revenue is irresistible.
    5G infrastructure, i.e. the lampposts on streets and motorways is the basis for a Smart County. The benefits will be:
    • Police surveillance that sees through walls
    • Smart road signs
    • Driverless vehicles and public transport
    • 4k live streaming on the move, realistic mobile virtual reality and mobile augmented reality
    • Fast connection for Elon Musk’s new brain implant called the Neuralink.

    PLEASE USE THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST TEMPLATE TO LAWFULLY CHALLENGE YOUR COUNCIL ABOUT 5G AND SMART CITIES:
    5G Freedom of Information Request | How to Lawfully Expose Smart City Plans

    The secret 5G rollout issue in Gateshead is now officially of public interest and will be treated as a landmark case for other people to start using this Court’s ruling to challenge their Councils. We know Surrey, Westminster and Luton all have these toxic Microwave EMF arrays installed on their new LED streetlights. We now know even if these arrays are currently 2G, 3G or 4G they can be 5G enabled by fitting a ‘lens’ that ‘focuses’ the frequency.

    The Judge declared Mark Steele as a credible expert and engineer on EMF and GSM technologies, which proves Gateshead Council are liable for corruption, misleading the public, making people ill and attempting to discredit Mark Steele and all others such as Smombie Gate fighting 5G rollouts.

    Councils are struggling at the moment, over 50% are almost bankrupt because over half of their resources are being spent on the increase of Adult Social Care, so any supplier proposal with the promise of more revenue is irresistible.

    Smart City companies are going into Councils with amazing futuristic presentations detailing the first step, which is to install the 5G infrastructure, i.e. the lampposts on streets and motorways.

    The benefits will be 24/7 Police surveillance that sees through walls; smart road signs; 4k live streaming on the move; driverless vehicles and public transport; mobile virtual reality; mobile augmented reality; and a fast connection for Elon Musk’s new brain implant called the Neuralink giving people the Internet inside their mind. All these features are all a wet dream for Councils who will be the first ones to become Smart Counties because they will be able to increase taxes and the local economy in theory will thrive.
    [​IMG]"In reality, scientific evidence is mounting across the planet that EMF, RF, 3G, 4G, 5G, WiFI and WiGIG is causing Cancer, killing bees, driving out wildlife and lowering peoples quality of life. All because big business says it’s good for the people, and they’re continuing to mislead us all of the dangers of continuous use in close proximity and on the skin, let alone what 5G really is, which is an effective battlefield weapon."

    We know that Gateshead isn’t the only Council who is misleading the public on the 5G rollout and it’s seemingly been going on for a few years. Luton, Surrey and Westminster are next along with all Councils that have installed these arrays that are being installed by particular companies (we’ll leave you to do your own work on how you think these companies are!).

    Who is paying for these 5G rollouts? Who’s given consent on behalf of the People? Who has done research to prove the new infrastructure’s safety?

    As usual, these important issues are being rubbished by the media and beneficiaries to big business. But they’ll soon see our wrath, as we now this ruling. All Hell is going to break loose in Great Britain and we’re going to take the fight to them. We will NOT be silenced, and you will not wilfully poison our bodies and our families bodies with Class 1 radiation – WE DO NOT CONSENT.

    https://www.fastcompany.com/90314058/5g-means-youll-have-to-say-goodbye-to-your-location-privacy

    The fifth-generation cellular network rolling out in America and other countries this year will revolutionize the way our devices connect to the internet and to one another. 5G is such a technologically important leap forward–without it the future smart cities we dream about where everything is connected simply wouldn’t be possible.
    However, there is one major–and unavoidable–drawback to 5G: It’s going to cost you your location privacy. Anyone with access to your ISP’s cell tower data will be able to hone in on your exact location far more precisely than they can today under our 4G networks. The reason for this is that 4G network technology has a wide coverage area when it comes to being broadcast from a single cellular tower. Matter of fact, 4G can be broadcast about a mile from a single tower.

    5G network technology, on the other hand, has a much smaller coverage area, and it can’t penetrate through walls to get indoors as well as 4G technology can. This means 5G networks will require many more cellular towers placed closer together. These towers won’t be like the old towers you envision that look like electrified Eiffel Towers, mind you, they’re just small antennas that will need to be dotted around on rooftops and street lights and inside shopping malls and other buildings. But at the end of the day, dozens and dozens of 5G towers will need to be placed around an area that a single 4G tower would have covered in the past.

    So how does this affect your location privacy? Each time your device connects to a tower, your mobile network knows you are within range of that tower. Under 4G networks, that means your mobile provider could pinpoint your location within about a mile’s accuracy–so your location was pretty well obfuscated. But since 5G towers will need to be everywhere and you’ll only connect to one 5G tower at a time, your mobile network will now be able to pinpoint your location much more accurately–even knowing which building you are in. On top of this, as you move through a city, your mobile network provider will be able to chart the path you take with a high degree of accuracy since your device will keep jumping from connecting to one nearest 5G tower to the next.

    Steve Bellovin, a professor of computer science at Columbia University, recently told the Wall Street Journal that 5G will raise privacy concerns when it comes to location data:

    5G signals in the U.S. will have a very short range and won’t easily go through buildings. This means there need to be many more cell towers. The main way that a cellphone tells where you are–as opposed to a website or an app–is, which tower are you talking to. Today’s towers have a radius of about a mile. If the new towers cover a much smaller area, it means that they know much more precisely where you are . . . You’re going to see a lot more indoor towers–in shopping malls, big office buildings, hotels and so on. So in that sense you are going to get far more precise.

    So what does this lack of location privacy on 5G networks mean to you? If your mobile network sells your data, it will be much easier for data brokers and advertisers to see your current location and target more relevant ads to you based on your location. This data can also enable advertisers and data brokers to see the exact routes you take each day and even which buildings you go into. And anyone with access to your mobile network’s cell tower data will now be able to track your movements in real time.

    But unfortunately, if you want 5G service, there’s no way around giving up more of your location privacy. Welcome to the brave new world of 5G.

    It's a trick within a requirement for implementing 5g RF signal "steering", required to service the high-speed 5G signal.

    Each antenna array in the larger installations is actually a single or dual / quad / more? split antenna directing an "aimed" beam - directed at each specific device - moving or stationary, that without knowing the precise location of the device the 5g service wouldn't be able to precisely aim the RF beam feeding it.

    I don't know that the purpose is the "tracking" side-effect of servicing devices, but it can certainly be used for device location tracking - as that is required to service RF to devices precisely.

    As the device moves the RF signal beamed to it must be handed off and moved to the next steered RF beam to feed the device - hand-off will happen much quicker and between multiple array's within a larger site feeding devices, or between sites as you move physically away from one RF antenna array toward another.

    In smaller array's, say down a building hallway, or outside between building to building, when you turn a physical or RF coverage "corner" the signal will follow the device, as you hold the device the signal moves where you move. Signal strength received at the device - and return signal received at the antenna array's, those signal sources will constantly adjust to make sure your device maintains connectivity.

    Between 5g coverage, 4g coverage can take over - 3g / 2g as well - and the 5g coverage will be most precise as to your location by necessity of the short distance and obstacle limitations of 5g RF propagation.

    It's not hard to imagine that other devices connected up to the RF steering network can also be given your location to seamlessly hand off your changing location to other tracking networks.

    Cameras in particular - but also future services such as directed subject Advertising as you pass by shops - or Advertising nodes with a screen / projector to show you "what you need" and where it is in relation to your precise location.

    The 5g network knows where you seem to be headed by direction - aided by your or it's internet search query - advertisements to grab your interest before you get to your destination to redirect you and your buying power to other destinations.

    Of course recharging your device as you move can also be accomplished, since the tight RF beam can be joined with a tight recharging power beam to feed your batteries.

    Since everyone will be known, tracked and contact maintained, perhaps it will become illegal to turn off your device or leave it behind? Maybe your front door won't unlock without it?

    5g isn't the same as previous generations of trackable devices, but it's really not that much different in locating you than it is today. Your device location is known via Cell RF and Wifi RF, even Bluetooth RF, precisely enough today.

    What is different is the amount of RF energy spraying out in close proximity to everyone around those many times more abundant RF sources, beaming focused RF signals right through you and I on it's way to servicing another device - with our RF sensitive bodies caught in between.

    Millions of RF sources, some right outside your bedroom window, perhaps located on your own dwelling, day and night 24/7 pumping out RF in proximity to you.

    Millions of people connected 24/7 needing to see "Cat." images, it's vital stuff. The ancient Egyptians tried to warn us, but so far we haven't listened. ;)

    It's the increase in RF exposure for everyone that's the real danger. The additional information gathered by 5g's more precise location positioning is incidental - not to be ignored - but the real danger is the increase in RF exposure.
