  • NSA 5G NR launch nearing in Europe, although with thin current spread.
  • DT continues to use MWC catwalk to flout 5G app and ecosystem plays.

Claudia Nemat, Head of Technology & Innovation at Deutsche Telekom (DT), claimed 5G was “getting real”. Speaking in typical enthusiastic fashion during DT’s press event at Mobile World Congress (MWC), held during late-February 2019 in Barcelona, she appeared to position the Group as a key player in helping Europe to at least keep 5G pace with the USA and parts of Asia that are already making strong inroads with the next-generation technology.

“I believe there is no way for Europe to fall behind in 5G, and that is what we’re striving for. We’re investing heavily in the network. We need to have 5G in Europe. ” – Nemat.

In a bid to illustrate the point, Nemat flagged 150 5G antennas will go “live” before 31 March 2019 across six of the Group’s markets (Austria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, and the Netherlands). The antennas, implied Nemat, will transmit data over pre-commercial non-standalone (NSA) 5G New Radio (5G NR) networks. Some antennas are already in field-trial action, primarily in Germany.

More 5G trials in Germany

Germany remains at the forefront of DT’s 5G efforts in Europe, despite huge concerns about the award conditions of 5G-friendly frequency rights (see separate report). In the run-up to MWC, Telekom Deutschland (TDE) announced that the city of Darmstadt will hold 5G NR antenna trials.

Darmstadt joins Berlin and the Port of Hamburg as testbeds for 5G antennas on DT’s home turf (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #66 and #78). While Huawei Technologies is heavily involved in the Berlin 5G trials, and Nokia prominent among DT’s partners in Hamburg, Ericsson is providing the kit for the 5G-antenna field tests in Darmstadt.

The aim in Darmstadt is to have a total of 18 test antennas, spread across six different sites, up and running by spring 2019. Using 3.7GHz spectrum (one of the frequency bands being auctioned in Germany), the 5G NR antennas connect to Ericsson base stations that have been software-upgraded through single radio access network (S-RAN) technology. Ericsson deploys ‘massive’ multiple-input, multiple output (MIMO) antenna configurations, using up-to-64 transmitters and receivers, which adhere to NSA 5G NR specifications. Massive MIMO of this magnitude can support beamforming, which purportedly allows tighter signal focus and greater spectrum efficiency.

The 5G ‘cluster’ in Berlin now comprises 50 antenna. This suggests that the remainder of the 150 5G antennas that Nemat said were set to go “live” in Europe, are spread thinly outside Germany.

Alongside 5G-antenna testing in Darmstadt, TDE said it will put a “range of 5G applications and devices” through their paces, leaning on a Prototyping 5G programme developed by Group tech incubator hub:raum in Berlin. A total of 15 participating startups hailing from Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Poland, and the UK are on the programme roster. Applications under development involve the likes of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), virtual gaming, entertainment, robotics and  more vaguely  “future mobility”.

Ericsson and Huawei are TDE’s RAN suppliers. In early-2019, the NatCo claimed that 22,000 of its 27,000 mobile sites were already “5G-ready” thanks to fibre connectivity and the latest S-RAN functionality (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #80).

Investment catch-up

Despite Nemat’s efforts to portray DT (and Europe) as keeping up in the international 5G race, the number of 5G antennas currently “live” within the Group’s European footprint is small. Group tower business Deutsche Funkturm had 29,400 sites across its German footprint as of 31 December 2018, and is aiming to expand this by several thousand as part of a wider, 5G-flavoured investment splurge (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #74 and passim).

LG Uplus, a mobile network operator (MNO) in South Korea, has rolled out 10,000 NSA 5G NR cell sites using Huawei equipment. It is highly likely that most, if not all, of the sites are primed with “live” antennas. Like South Korea’s other two MNOs, SK Telecom (SKT) and KT, LG Uplus is aiming to launch commercial 5G by 31 March 2019, in the expectation that the first batch of 5G-enabled smartphones will be available by then. In the USA, there is a similar sense that 5G is much more advanced than in Europe, albeit with Group subsidiary T-Mobile US playing a leading role (see separate report).

Despite its front as a leading 5G player globally, DT’s top brass has repeatedly indicated coolness towards Europe as an investment destination, versus the USA, and its regional plans have been thrown further into question by uncertainties surrounding the German 5G auction. It remains unclear how far DT will keep on “investing heavily” in Europe – as Nemat put it – without stronger assurances from the region’s regulators that asset-lite players and market newcomers will not be able to piggyback on its expensively-built 5G infrastructure, without paying commercial rates.

It could be surmised that investment threats of this sort are not entirely serious – more of a negotiating ploy to force the hand of regulators – since DT would risk falling behind its European MNO and fixed-line competitors.

DT takes 5G on the MWC dancefloor

Various other elements of DT’s MWC news agenda were directed at stressing its ability to make a global mark in 5G:

DT edge computing spinout MobiledgeX showed some indication of how much progress it had made since the Group set up the company as a separate entity in January 2018 (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #70). At DT’s stand, MobiledgeX teamed with TDE, AR application specialist and partner Niantic, and Samsung (with its new, edge app-friendly S10+ device), to provide a “mixed reality, multi-gamer” demonstration. Dubbed “Codename: Neon”, the game takes place in both ‘reality‘ and VR, and is apparently only made possible by 5G’s “ultra-low” latencies. Nemat thought gaming might be a 5G ‘killer app‘. A few days prior to MWC, MobiledgeX launched MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud R1.0, which supports its first mobile edge network deployments with TDE (and underpinned the demo). The solution connects mobile users to application cloud containers created by aggregating existing operator network resources. MobiledgeX indicated six locations in Germany had been enabled with MobiledgeX software, and this will rise to twelve by the end of 2019.

Höttges and Park Jung-ho, President of SKT, continued their ‘old pals’ act in Barcelona by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to “accelerate” the strategic partnership they have been cultivating since at least 2016 (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #41 and passim). Both operators agreed to “evaluate potential options to optimise” their partnership. Areas of interest are not restricted to developing the 5G ecosystem; they include “over-the-top” media, security, and the cloud. DT and SKT also floated the idea of establishing a joint venture. Details are still fuzzy, but Park Jung-ho said SKT was interested in seeking “new business opportunities in the European markets for network, media, and security technologies”. It seems likely that Höttges will look for some sort of quid pro quo in Asia. The MoU follows on from October 2018 talks that Höttges held with Park Jung-ho at SKT’s headquarters in South Korea (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #77). At MWC, some fruits of DT collaboration with SKT were on display. They included digital and mobile ID services based on blockchain technology, and a “Social VR Experience Zone”. DT also firmed up a previously-mooted investment in SKT-backed quantum cryptography specialist ID Quantique, provided via the Telekom Innovation Pool strategic funding vehicle (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #78).

Also on the DT stand was a demo, broadcast live on-screen, of automated guided vehicles in a smart-factory context. The demo is the result of collaboration between DT and lighting technology specialist Osram (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #76 and #77). Visitors to DT’s booth could observe an autonomous transport robot carrying material on the shop floor, controlled by an LTE network – but with an 5G upgrade in the pipeline – at the Osram plant in Schwabmünchen, Germany. The move forms part of DT’s campus network vision for 5G. ZF Friedrichshafen, a German car-parts maker, is testing such a system in cooperation with TDE, while Magyar Telekom (MT) recently indicated it was developing the same solution. US-headquartered BorgWarner, a manufacturer of automotive parts with operations in Hungary, is in a testing phase with MT. According to DT, the campus solution meets the requirements of Industrie 4.0, Germany’s initiative for introducing more advanced, digital technologies into the manufacturing sector.

In another 5G-is-coming-soon announcement, the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA), of which DT is a member (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #58 and passim), claimed that Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology was on track for commercial rollout during 2019. Mass production of C-V2X chips is said to be taking place, and “multiple radio vendors have already integrated these chips into their automotive radio offerings”. The 5GAA flagged that 5G-ready tests were taking place under “real-life conditions” at Vodafone’s 5G Mobility Lab in Aldenhoven, Germany. DT was mentioned in despatches too, but for LTE-based C-V2X rather than a 5G offering. Coinciding with MWC, T-Mobile Czech Republic announced it was testing LTE-Vehicles technology for communications between vehicles and transport infrastructure. The tests are underway with Skoda Auto and Qualcomm as part of the C-Roads project – a joint initiative of European Union member states and road operators, focused on testing and implementing Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems across national borders.
