Infrastructure mexico interview of the week john donoghue, allied wireless and national fiber networks mexico power outage houston report

Allied Wireless and National Fiber Networks Mexico is a thirty-five-year veteran of telecommunication and IT industries, founder of the first dark fiber company in the US and Mexico. gas x coupon 2015 It built out 1,500 cell sites for the first US PCS wireless carriers. President and CEO John Donoghue sat down with us to discuss Mexico’s obstacles to building Smart Cities and how his company can help.

A: Globally, the deployment of neutral digital infrastructure –including dark fiber, wireless infrastructure and data centers— has succeeded in providing OPEX versus CAPEX benefits to concessionaires, carriers, enterprises and the public sector. gas pains or contractions As carriers and concessionaires reinvent themselves as content or bundle service providers, capital is deployed more effectively in their core business.

Third-party tower companies, dark fiber companies and data centers are the usually preferred deployment methods, which we will aggressively push in Mexico through our Smart Cities strategy. Neutral Digital Infrastructure will create new companies to handle the responsibilities of managing networks in the private and public sectors, opening many new job opportunities in the country.

A: Dark fiber provides higher bandwidth for the existing and the next generation networks, including 5G, IoT, Small Cell Densification, Mobile Backhaul, Edge Computing, In-Building Wireless and a new silo of applications. i gas shares It also gives the private sector better control of its networks and bandwidth to improve and protect businesses. With a forecasted 25 trillion chips and sensors to be installed over the next five years globally, data and video bandwidth requirements will grow substantially each year.

A: There are no Smart Cities today in Mexico. The most important step in creating these in the country is to foster more PPPs at a municipal level. gas bloating nausea Municipalities already took the first step in becoming Smart, which is to incorporate technology to improve a specific service or address certain needs, such as safety, traffic, water or power management.

In this scenario, the creation of a neutral shared digital infrastructure is crucial to further advance Smart Cities in the country. gas jet size chart Mexico needs to deploy a great deal of fiber and at least 80,000 towers and 500,000 small cells to meet the demand for 5G connectivity, IoT, In-Building Wireless and AI applications. Neutral shared digital infrastructure is also crucial to avoid an ROW cannibalization by carriers and to boost economic development in cities.

But Mexico’s current infrastructure ROW prevents many international companies from entering the market. electricity facts label A CFE pole by law is allowed three cables but throughout Mexico you will find as many as 20 fiber cables on a pole. Streets have been dug up as many as five times. z gas ensenada In both scenarios, corruption is the normal practice hindering foreign investment in the telecommunications sector. Q: How did the Telecommunications Reform impact your business in terms of opportunities and challenges?

A: The Telecommunications Reform welcomed new investment, promoted competition between companies and benefited Mexicans by lowering consumer costs for wireless services by 50 percent. I think that organizations such as PROMTEL, IFT, CANIETI and CUDI have done an outstanding job in a short period of time. I also believe that the success of the Shared Network project will enable new entries of mobile virtual network operators (MVNO). In the US, TracFone has 24 million subscribers as an MVNO using all four US Wireless Carriers. Owned by Carlos Slim, this can serve as a lesson for the Shared Network project. Limited by capital, the only way the Shared Network project can be built is through shared neutral digital infrastructure.
