This software tech negates the 5G story!!!!

The cell phone companies know this!!!!!
This software advancement promises to overshadow in a dramatic, cost-effective way the decisions for Mobile Companies to purchase additional bandwidth, install more cellular towers and or expensive hardware upgrades. Also increasing end user customers could have no effect on current hardware, while improving end user services and data download/transfer speeds. This all results in significant additional revenue for Mobile companies.

At minimum they have the capability to make the average of 15 customers (Android mobile phones) Data Footprint requirements on your network look like ONE cell phone on average.

Also at minimum 7-8 customers (iPhone) average mobile data footprint requirements will look like ONE on average. Also with newer chipsets in the iPhones this ratio increases significantly. The speeds are on the order of magnitude very similar to 5G just with this software improvement.

      Comparison of ODEN-T
  7. Question: How does ODEN-T work?
    1. Answer: As ODEN-T is not an application on the smartphone, the installation requirements for ODEN-T at the TELCO are minimal. ODEN-T is installed at the Network Operations Center (NOC) and hosted on a transparent proxy server or cloud-based server.  Connectivity is provided via two ports, one routable to the internet and one to receive requests from the smartphone for routing to the ODEN-T proxy server.  The ODEN-T proxy server receives the smartphone data request and routes these requests to the media provider via the internet. The requested data is sent back to the ODEN-T proxy server for compression and routed to the smartphone.  Note the data received from the ODEN-T server by the smartphone is ready for immediate viewing on receipt. An internal cache in the ODEN-T server will store any images, video, and CSS information in both the compressed and uncompressed state. IP metrics will be fed to the ODEN-T server and used to determine the outgoing and originating client IP address.  See typical ODEN-T Network Topology below:
      Network Traffic
  8. Question: What is the ODEN-T service flow?  Answer:
    1. Diagram of ODEN-T service flow.
      ODENT-T Service Flow
  9. Question: How is the smartphone handset configured for operation with the ODEN-T server?
    1. Answer: The provisioning of the handset for operation with the ODEN T proxy server is simple and can be accomplished over the air, from a web site link, at point of sale, or direct from the OEM. The specific requirements are as follows:
      1. Install the ODEN-T server certificate on the handset
      2. Install the handset certificate on the ODEN-T server
      3. Configure the handset with the IP address of the ODEN T server
  10. Question: What are the TELCO comments following the ODEN-T Beta Tests?
    1. Answer: “Today we performed tests in an area with poor 3G coverage (-100dBm or worst).  We saw that most of the times while browsing and downloading videos, the phones with ODEN-T loaded the pages or the video faster. Sometimes the phone without ODEN-T timed out because of the bad signal level. When we downloaded images, the phones with ODEN-T always downloaded the images faster.”
    2. Answer: “Yesterday we incorporated the verification of the data consumption of the phones by using our TELCO metrics tool to verify data available in the phone plan before and after the test.  By doing this, we were able to validate what we were getting from the app Internet Speed Meter.  We got very similar numbers with both methods.  And we were able to confirm the compression in the ODEN-T phones.  We also did tests with the iPhone without any problems.”
  11. Question: What is the difference between hosting ODEN-T on a Local Server versus a Cloud-based Server?
    1. Answer: There are several variables on the decision to use a Cloud based solution versus a Local Server at the TELCO Network Operations Center (NOC).  Given TIMMES pays upfront for either solution, CAPEX outlay is typically not a factor.  Most significant for a Cloud based solution is there commercial coverage in the TELCO area and what the associated latency is.  In most cases, TELCOs elect to go with a local based server solution inside the TELCO security enclave.  These decisions will be made by the TELCO with recommendations from TIMMES following a TIMMES’ site survey.
  12. Question:  What cellular protocols will benefit from ODEN-T?
    1. Answer: ODEN-T benefits all cellular protocols, but is most impactful on 3G and below networks, enabling these protocols to perform at higher levels and improving the Quality of Experience (QoE) for the user.
    2. Answer: ODEN T doesn’t just compress the traffic, we reduce the round trips to get the requested data, and there are additional enhancements including nagle defiance, fair-robin access policy keeping phones in non-congested areas from receiving data in-lieu of the devices in congested areas, at the expense of the congested area customer’s experience, and traffic group shaping by heuristics.
    3. Answer: ODEN T also converts SSL / HTTP traffic to HTTP2 to enhance the load times of websites, even when the traffic cannot be compressed. The result is a better overall QoE. Additionally, the more customers that are using ODEN T, the better the user experience for all users, including those who are not using ODEN T.
  13. Question: Why is improving the efficiency of the RF spectrum for the TELCO and customers so important?
    1. Answer: The U.S. mobile phone industry is running out of the airwaves necessary to provide voice, text and Internet services to its customers.  This is also true of the global cellular market.   The problem, known as the “spectrum crunch,” threatens to increase the number of dropped calls, slow down data speeds and raise customers’ prices.
      1. Spectrum Crunch –
        1. RF Spectrum costs billions of dollars to lease at auction
        2. RF Spectrum for cellular providers (TELCOs) is finite and limited
        3. RF Spectrum usage is inefficient
      2. Increasing Demand for Cellular Data –
        1. Cellular congestion in high density urban areas
        2. Insatiable thirst for e-mail, apps, and particularly video
      3. Regions of Reduced Cellular signal strength restricts services –
        1. Long handset wait times
        2. Dropped calls
        3. Inability to access video and media content
  14. How has the cellular market changed over time?
    1. Answer: A recent paper documents these changes – “Cisco Visual Networking Forecast Update”, 2016-2021 White Paper, March 28, 2017 :
      1. “Mobile data traffic has grown 18-fold over past 5 years.
      2. Global mobile data traffic grew 63 percent in 2016.
      3. Almost half a billion (429 million) mobile devices, mostly smartphones, and connections were added in 2016.
      4. Global mobile devices and connections in 2016 grew to 8.0 billion, up from 7.6 billion in 2015.”
  15. Question: As a cellular service provider, how does ODEN-T improve my revenue?
    1. Answer: ODEN-T compresses the data being transmitted to the smartphone; this is download data where 6X more data is consumed versus upload.  If more users can be serviced over the existing RF spectrum, it is an immediate revenue increase to the provider.
    2. Answer: With the ODEN-T improvements to the performance of the smartphone, we have observed an increased level of data consumption drawing on data from sites including Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.
  16. Question: How large is the global broadband market for 3G and below coverage?
    1. Answer: While constantly growing, there are billions of global broadband subscribers with 3G and below coverage.  This is particularly true in developing nations and those with a more rural customer base.  ODEN-T dramatically improves the cellular performance to this market along with quality of service.
  17. Question: Will ODEN-T improve the performance of 4G/LTE networks?
    1. Answer: Yes, the bandwidth savings ODEN-T offers apply to all cellular technologies.
  18. Question: What data types will benefit from ODEN-T for cellular data passage?
    1. Answer: ODEN-T benefits all digital downloaded file and data types, including streaming use cases.
    2. Answer: Most significant is the increased demand for video.  ODEN-T has achieved the following bandwidth savings for the key media providers
      1. Facebook = 49%
      2. YouTube = 35%
      3. Instagram = 35%
  19. Question: Can ODEN-T be demonstrated?
    1. Answer: Yes, TIMMES will provide the TELCO with an introduction, typically conference call, followed by and on-site ODEN-T Beta Test using the TELCO network infrastructure and smartphones.
  20. Question: Can ODEN-T be scaled to support enterprise and commercial cellular subscriber volumes of users?
    1. Answer: Yes, ODEN-T, at the web server appliance, can be configured to any size of customer base?  Specifics are available should this be desired.
  21. Question: Is ODEN-T exportable?
    1. Answer: Yes
  22. Question: What are the hardware requirements to interface with the TELCO?
    1. Answer: As ODEN-T is not an application on the smartphone, the installation requirements for ODEN-T at the TELCO are minimal.  ODEN-T is installed at the Network Operations Center (NOC) and hosted on a transparent proxy server or cloud-based server.  Connectivity is provided via two ports, one routable to the internet and one to receive requests from the smartphone for routing to the ODEN-T proxy server.  The ODEN-T proxy server receives the smartphone data request and routes these requests to the media provider via the internet. The requested data is sent back to the ODEN-T proxy server for compression and routed to the smartphone.  Note the data received from the ODEN-T server by the smartphone is ready for immediate viewing on receipt. An internal cache in the ODEN-T server will store any images, video, and CSS information in both the compressed and uncompressed state. IP metrics will be fed to the ODEN-T server and used to determine the outgoing and originating client IP address.
  23. Question: How long to implement ODEN-T?
    1. Answer: On receipt of the TIMMES ODEN-T server, implementation takes 2 to 3 days.  The timeline, specific requirements, and personnel are documented in the ODEN-T Installation Manual for the Beta Test.
  24. Question: Will it get the significant results with telcos in telcos were the network is overloaded? (Mostly due to SMS traffic and social media usage)
    1. Answer: It may show the best performance improvement in these highly congested areas, if properly managed and dynamically controlled.  We return approx. 60% to the backhaul portion of the network availability. The TELCO will see an overall increase of network performance, network speed, network reliability and data network performance.
  25. Question: What is the revenue source for the Telecom Company?
    1. Answer: The provider will experience between 20%-80% bandwidth reduction due to the compression of the data with an average of 40%. This variation is dependent upon the type of data being transmitted and received. The bandwidth reduction offers huge savings to the provider.
    2. Answer: With the increase in RF efficiency and the service upgrade (example 2G to 3G or 4G) the TELCO can increase the monthly charge to customers.
  26. Question: What markets are ODEN-T deployed to or proven operations?
    1. Answer: ODEN-T has completed Beta Testing in over 20 countries with excellent results.  Operations are in progress with multiple countries online.
  27. Question: Who do you consider as competitors?
    1. Answer: There is no existing competition today for ODEN-T.  TIMMES has the only end to end, turnkey solution with zero CAPEX required.  TIMMES looks forward to the opportunity to conduct a Beta Test at the TELCO facility to prove this claim.
  28. Question: Could you let me know if ODEN-T provides compression to the following providers; Sling, HBO, Now, ESPN, and Fandango Now?  What is the level of compression to be expected?
    1. Answer: “ODEN-T does optimize the traffic flows and compress the traffic for Sling, HBO Now, Watch ESPN, and Fandango Now with a range of 35-45% depending of the pick congestion time and number of users sharing a tower. Non-supported platforms are still optimized, but not compressed; optimization includes nagle defiance for heavy congestion, fair access polling, and acknowledgement of the pre-segmenting with dynamic adjustment based on RTT and associated with CWND.”
    2. Answer: Additionally, ODEN-T has achieved the following bandwidth savings for other key media providers:
      1. Facebook = 49%
      2. YouTube = 35%
      3. Instagram = 35%
  29. Question: Who do I contact for more information on ODEN-T

Ontix to deploy small cells in Westminster to pave the way for 5G

Sarah Wray

By Sarah Wray and James Rogerson 25 September 2018

Ontix 5G small cells

Wireless infrastructure provider Ontix Limited is set to deploy small cell nodes on street furniture such as lamp posts in the Westminster borough of London to boost connectivity and pave the way for 5G.

The initiative will provide faster connectivity and greater capacity for mobile and wireless network operators. A core aim of the project is to end the pockets of patchy coverage in the borough – known as ‘not-spots’.

In recent years pressure has increased on Westminster’s legacy telecommunications infrastructure and many operators have reported difficulty in finding sufficient rooftop sites to deploy macro cells. Integrating small cells and other hardware into existing street furniture such as streetlights is increasingly popular.

Lighting the way

This trend is being further exacerbated as we move towards 5G where more base stations are required — because higher radio frequencies travel faster but not as far, and they can easily be blocked. Streetlights are a good option because they are ubiquitous and already have a power source.

According to a forecast from Navigant Research, over 73 million smart streetlights will be installed globally by 2026. Navigant highlights that supporting the development of cellular 5G networks is key to realising the value of smart streetlights and reaping return on investment (ROI).

With the new small cell infrastructure in place, Westminster residents should see a better service – particularly for applications such as video streaming, online gaming and web browsing on the move.

Preparing for 5G

Ontix won the work following a competitive tender. Under the ten-year deal, the company also plans to build a high capacity, neutral-host ‘Metrohaul’ network “to deliver 5G-ready connectivity for all operators”.

The first stage will be the launch of a pilot small cell network in Trafalgar Square in November. This will be available for all operators to trial their services. Following the pilot phase, small cells will be rolled out across the wider Westminster borough in early 2019. The area incorporates many of London’s major tourist attractions.

Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Economic Development Education and Community at Westminster City Council, said: “This new micro-technology will finally relegate ‘not-spots’ to the digital dustbin of history and Westminster will now embody the UK’s ambition to become a world leader in 5G.”

Antony Tomlinson, Chief Executive of Ontix, added: “We are very excited to be working together with Westminster City Council on this very significant project for the capital.  This is a huge opportunity, and one of the very first of its kind on this scale.  5G promises to deliver a huge impact, socially and economically, but we need to make it a reality. Partnerships like this are where it happens.”

While this is good news for Westminster, similar plans are also afoot in other parts of London. For example, Arqiva plans to install small cells on lamp posts in Waltham Forest.

Despite widespread denial, the evidence that radio frequency (RF) radiation is harmful to life is already overwhelming. The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings, experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells and organ systems in a wide variety of plants and animals, and epidemiological evidence that the major diseases of modern civilization—cancer, heart disease and diabetes—are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution, forms a literature base of well over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies.

If the telecommunications industry’s plans for 5G come to fruition, no person, no animal, no bird, no insect and no plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that are tens to hundreds of times greater than what exists today, without any possibility of escape anywhere on the planet. These 5G plans threaten to provoke serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to all of the Earth’s ecosystems.

Immediate measures must be taken to protect humanity and the environment, in accordance with ethical imperatives and international agreements.

(Washington, DC) – Researchers with the renowned Ramazzini Institute (RI) in Italy announced that a large-scale lifetime study of lab animals exposed to environmental levels of cell tower radiation developed cancer. A $25 million study of much higher levels of cell phone radiofrequency (RF) radiation, from the US National Toxicology Program (NTP), has also reported finding the same unusual cancer called Schwannoma of the heart in male rats treated at the highest dose. In addition, the RI study of cell tower radiation also found increases in malignant brain (glial) tumors in female rats and precancerous conditions including Schwann cells hyperplasia in both male and female rats.

The study findings are making headline news. Read the Corriere Di Bologna article “Cellulari, a study by Ramazzini: “They cause very rare tumours.

“Our findings of cancerous tumours in rats exposed to environmental levels of RF are consistent with and reinforce the results of the US NTP studies on cell phone radiation, as both reported increases in the same types of tumours of the brain and heart in Sprague-Dawley rats. Together, these studies provide sufficient evidence to call for the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) to re-evaluate and re-classify their conclusions regarding the carcinogenic potential of RFR in humans,” said Fiorella Belpoggi Ph.D., study author and RI Director of Research.

The Ramazzini study exposed 2448 Sprague-Dawley rats from prenatal life until their natural death to “environmental” cell tower radiation for 19 hours per day (1.8 GHz GSM radiofrequency radiation (RFR) of 5, 25 and 50 V/m). RI exposures mimicked base station emissions like those from cell tower antennas, and exposure levels were far less than those used in the NTP studies of cell phone radiation.
