GAMBoD Database Update: Networks Technology Spectrum

GAMBoD Database Update:

The first 2020 GAMBoD Database Update shows 355 operators investing in 5G networks  and 61 operators with commercially launched 3GPP-compliant 5G services.

As of mid-January 2020 GSA’s NTS database showed:

  • There are 791 operators with commercially launched LTE networks (offering broadband fixed wireless access and or mobile services).
  • 236 operators hold licences to use spectrum for TD-LTE services, 167 of which are known to be actively using the spectrum (either deploying networks or have launched services).
  • 365 operators investing in either LTE-Advanced or LTE-Advanced Pro technologies. Of those, 323 operators have deployed/launched LTE-Advanced or LTE-Advanced Pro technologies in their commercial networks. 199 operators are investing in one or more LTE-Advanced Pro technologies.
  • 355 operators are investing in 5G networks in the form of tests, trials, pilots, planned and actual deployments.
  • 77 operators have announced that they have deployed 3GPP-compliant 5G technology in their networks.
  • With multiple announcements of 5G launches in recent weeks, GSA now counts 61 operators in 34 countries that have launched one or more 3GPP-compliant commercial 5G services (some with smart phones; some with 5G routers; some offering services widely; some with limited geographic, device or and customer availability).
    • Including 50 5G mobile services (including 3 limited availability launches) and 34 5G FWA or home broadband services (7 limited availability).

159 operators investing in NB-IoT; 106 of them have launched the technology in their network

The NTS database tracks various LTE network technologies:

  • 4×4 MIMO – 146 operators identified as investing, of which 86 have deployed/launched the technology within their commercial networks.
  • 8T8R MIMO and Massive MIMO – 69 operators identified as investing in these technologies; at least 31 deployed/launched.
  • 256 QAM in the DL – 121 operators identified as investing, of which 73 have deployed/launched the technology within their commercial networks.

And numerous key LTE service features:

  • 37 operators investing in LAA (8 with deployed/launched networks); 12 operators investing in LTE-U (3 with deployed/launched networks); 3 operators investing in LWA (one launch so far). 17 public network operators (all in the US) are investing in CBRS.
  • 270 operators investing in VoLTE, with 206 launched networks.
  • 159 operators investing in NB-IoT with 106 deployed/launched networks.
  • 69 operators investing in LTE-M with 43 deployed/launched networks.
