Ericsson Mobility Report Shows Mobile Networks’ Crucial Role During COVID-19 Pandemic

first_imgThe spread of COVID-19 has prompted people all over the world to change their daily routines and, in many cases, work or study from home. This has led to a rapid shift in network traffic from business to residential areas. The latest Ericsson Mobility Report shows that mobile and fixed networks are increasingly playing an even bigger part of critical national infrastructure.Ericsson expects the global number of 5G subscriptions to top 190 million by the end of 2020 and 2.8 billion by the end of 2025. 5G will account for 18 percent of all mobile subscriptions by 2025.These forecasts are included in the June 2020 edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report, along with projections for data traffic growth, and regional subscriptions.The report also takes an incisive look at the role of networks and digital infrastructure in keeping societies running, and families connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.While 5G subscription growth in some markets has slowed as a result of the pandemic, this is outweighed by other markets where it is accelerating, prompting Ericsson to raise its year-end 2020 forecast for global 5G subscriptions.Beyond measuring the success of 5G in subscriptions, its impact ultimately will be judged by the benefits it brings to people and enterprises. 5G was made for innovation and this crisis has highlighted the true value of connectivity and the role it can play in restarting economies.Changes in behavior due to lockdown restrictions have caused measurable changes in the usage of both fixed and mobile networks. The largest share of the traffic increase has been absorbed by fixed residential networks, which has experienced a 20-100 percent growth. But many service providers also noticed a spike in demand on their mobile network.In a recent study conducted by Ericsson Consumer Lab, 83 percent of the respondents from 11 countries claim that ICT helped them a lot to cope with the lockdown. The results show an increased adoption and usage of ICT services, such as e-learning and wellness apps, that have helped consumers adapt to new realities, underpinned by connectivity.Looking ahead, while 57 percent say they will save money for financial security, one-third plan to invest in 5G and an improved broadband at home to be better prepared for a potential second wave of COVID-19.Ericsson Mobility Report, India HighlightsIndia remains the region with the highest usage per smartphone per month. Total traffic is projected to triple, reaching 21EB per month in 2025. In India, the average monthly mobile data usage per smartphone continues to show robust growth, boosted by the rapid adoption of 4G. Low prices for mobile broadband services, affordable smartphones and people’s changing video viewing habits have continued to drive monthly usage growth in the region. The number of smartphone subscriptions has increased to 620 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9 percent, reaching 1 billion by 2025. Around 410 million additional smartphone users are expected in India by 2025.LTE remains the dominant technology, accounting for 49 percent of mobile subscriptions in 2019. LTE will continue to be dominant, representing 64 percent of mobile subscriptions in 2025. In the India region, LTE subscriptions are forecast to increase from 550 million in 2019 to 820 million in 2025, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7 percent.Mobile broadband technologies accounted for 58 percent of mobile subscriptions in 2019, and this figure is predicted to reach 82 percent by 2025. The total number of mobile broadband subscriptions is set to exceed 1 billion by 2025. 5G will represent around 18 percent of mobile subscriptions in India at the end of 2025.5G Business PotentialThe current COVID-19 pandemic has also highlighted the importance of digitalization for businesses worldwide.With consumer and personal communication-centric commercial 5G networks already live around the globe, the next wave of 5G expansion will allow businesses to reap the benefits of enhanced mobility, flexibility, reliability, and security – taking IoT and industrial applications to never-before-seen levels.The combination of 5G and digitalization creates new opportunities for service providers to build and extend their businesses beyond connectivity. Ericsson’s 5G for Business: a 2030 market compass anticipates that by 2030 up to USD 700 billion of 5G-enabled, business-to-business value could be addressed by service providers.In India, the projected value of the 5G-enabled digitalization revenues will be approximately USD 17 billion by 2030. 5G is a platform for innovation. It enables new services for consumers, enterprises and industry, including large-scale IoT use cases. Healthcare, manufacturing, automotive and the energy/utilities sectors are among the biggest revenue generating opportunities for Communications service providers in 5G.It is key to invest in 4G in India, to excel in 5G. Private networks represent a very important first step and fundamental to building a momentum in serving a wide array of 5G-enabled use cases. Mobile technology is an unmatched connectivity foundation for the digital transformation of any industry, and any product, anywhere in the world.Initially (for the first widespread use case) 5G will be a network capacity, speed and quality enhancer in metropolitan areas with enhanced mobile broadband as a way for operators to address huge traffic growth. Over time, new, exciting innovation in 5G for business will come with IoT use cases as 5G opens up opportunities for operators. Further, we believe that 5G security provides a level of trustworthiness that enables the 5G system to meet the requirements of the vast majority of use cases,Ericsson now has more than 93 commercial 5G agreements or contracts with unique communication service providers, of which 40 are live networks. Ericsson was the first with commercial live networks on four continents: Europe, America, Asia and Australia. They have the right 5G portfolio in place to enable customers to deploy 5G networks in all main frequency bands globally in the fastest and most efficient way. This has been proven in live networks with the best performance results. Indian operators can benefit from Ericsson’s global experience when they plan their 5G deployments in India.Click here to download the Ericsson Mobility Report for June 2020.last_img read more

Robert Bentley’s decision to have four Confederate flags removed from outside capitol grounds in Montgomery last month following the killings at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, Saban said he’s not for a symbol that doesn’t represent equal rights for all people.“My opinion is anytime that we have a symbol that represents something that is mean spirited or doesn’t represent equal rights for all people, I’m not for having that symbol represent anything that we’re involved in,” Saban said. “It’s not my decision as to what the governor does or my decision what our university does. It’s just my opinion about the way I feel about symbols that are not positive toward human rights and everybody having equal opportunity.”Saban, Malzahn could make big impact regarding flagSEC commissioner Greg Sankey discussed the flag removal on capitol grounds in Columbia, S.C. into his opening statements Monday at SEC Media Days as part as his theme of change.“On that point, I’m particularly proud of the leadership demonstrated on our campuses in the states at the center of this debate,” Sankey said.Bentley orders removal of Confederate flagsPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Chelsea v Nordsjaelland ratings

first_imgChelsea went out of the Champions League despite a resounding win at Stamford Bridge. Here’s how we rated the Blues players in their 6-1 hammering of the Danish champions.Petr Cech: 7Made some decent saves, not least when keeping out Nicolai Stokholm’s first-half penalty to prevent Chelsea falling behind.Branislav Ivanovic: 6Got forward as Chelsea attacked in numbers but was caused the odd problem by the impressive Joshua John, especially in the early stages.David Luiz: 7Was good throughout and showed impressive leadership qualities to take the penalty and put Chelsea ahead after team-mate Eden Hazard had missed from the spot.Gary Cahill: 7Might have done better for Nordsjaelland’s goal but found the net at the other end with a cracking header from Juan Mata’s free-kick.Ashley Cole: 7Had an easy night. Able to attack when he liked and was hardly tested defensively.Oriol Romeu: 6After a couple of difficult games was able to coast as Chelsea easily controlled the midfield. Kept it simple.Ramires: 6Didn’t join the party in an attacking sense, but did his job in midfield to good effect.Victor Moses: 8Showed again that he is a force to be reckoned with, even among Chelsea’s other attacking stars. Caused the visiting defence problems and produced a great pass for Fernando Torres’ first goal.Juan Mata: 8In a league of his own as usual, taking players on and pinging around passes at will. A fine delivery for Cahill’s header and took his goal well. Far too hot for Nordsjaelland to handle.Eden Hazard: 7Atoned for his poor penalty with a sharp all-round display, linking up nicely with Mata and setting up Torres’ second.Fernando Torres: 8Led the line really well and scored two goals to end his barren run. To state the obvious though, he now needs to prove he can deliver against better opposition.Ryan Bertrand: 6Solid after replacing Cole for the final half an hour.Oscar: 7A great 25-minute cameo after coming on, capped by his fifth Champions League goal of the season.

Brilliant Root ton puts England on top against Sri Lanka

first_imgPALLEKELE, Sri Lanka,  (Reuters) – England captain Joe Root hit a brilliant century to put his team in a strong position in their quest for a series-clinching victory on the third day of the second test against Sri Lanka yesterday. Opener Rory Burns had earlier struck his maiden fifty as England, who lead the three-match series 1-0 after last week’s win in Galle, reached 324 for nine in their second innings at stumps, a lead of 278 on a pitch offering plenty of turn.Wicketkeeper Ben Foakes, playing his second test, further stretched England’s lead after the dismissal of Root for 124 and was unbeaten on 51 with James Anderson four not out when bad light and rain brought an end to the day’s play.Root and Foakes added 82 for the seventh wicket, dampening Sri Lanka’s hopes of restricting England’s lead to a manageable target at Pallekele after reducing them to 219-6 at one stage. Akila Dananjaya, who was reported for a suspect bowling action after the Galle test but is free to play, notched up career-best figures of 6-106 but his third-five wicket haul in only his fifth test might still prove inadequate. When play resumed in the morning, the tourists lost nightwatchman Jack Leach for one in the second over of the day, bringing regular openers Burns and Keaton Jennings together. While Burns looked at ease against Sri Lanka’s spinners with his nimble footwork, Jennings opted to utilise the reverse sweep to thwart the threat. The duo added 73 before Jennings’ most productive shot brought an end to his knock for 26, the ball clipping the batsman’s glove before carrying to the slip fielder Dhananjaya de Silva for a simple catch.Burns, playing in his second test, hit seven boundaries in his knock and was out leg before for 59 to Malinda Pushpakumara while trying to sweep the left-arm spinner. The batsman reviewed the decision but was unsuccessful. England suffered a further jolt in the next over when all-rounder Ben Stokes also fell leg before, for a duck, missing a sweep against off-spinner Dilruwan Perera.Stokes, who faced just two deliveries, also opted to go for a review but lost it. Root, who received a reprimand and one demerit point from the International Cricket Council on Thursday for a show of dissent, and Jos Buttler looked to attack the spinners during their stand of 74 to give England the upper hand. Buttler’s entertaining knock of 34 came to a premature end when he dragged spinner Akila Dananjaya on to his stumps with an attempted reverse sweep.Moeen Ali also did not last long and was out leg before to Dananjaya, but Root appeared unmoved by the fall of wickets around him. He brought up a deserving 15th test hundred with 10 fours and two sixes in his knock, using the sweep shot to good effect against Sri Lanka’s slow bowling attack.Root leapt for joy and punched the air after reaching the three-figure mark with a streaky boundary. Dananjaya removed Root and Sam Curran, who smashed 64 in the first innings, in consecutive deliveries and also dismissed Adil Rashid, who was unfortunate to be given out lbw as replays showed he had got an edge.last_img read more
