Vodafone Deploys 5G Multi-Operator RAN Gear Iain Morris NEWS ANALYSIS IAIN MORRIS, International Editor 1/13/2020 https://www.lightreading.com/mobile/5g/vodafone-deploys-5g-multi-operator-ran-gear/d/d-id/756740 Change one letter in the acronym and it would be the definition of stupid, but Vodafone evidently sees nothing idiotic in the use of MORAN technology. Today, it proudly drew attention to its status as the first UK operator to introduce it in its 5G network. Others, by implication, will follow. Just what is MORAN, and why has it popped up now? The acronym stands for multi-operator radio access network, and it essentially provides a way for operators to share the same basestations instead of building them out separately. Cue a radical step into so-called "active" network sharing and reliance by two or more operators on the same 5G basestation vendor. As dramatic as this all sounds, it has been on the cards since last year, when Vodafone and O2, its Telefónica-owned UK rival and network-sharing partner, said they would share active 5G equipment outside busy urban areas. Previously, the companies have shared active 4G equipment across the UK. When it comes to 5G, they plan to roll out separate radio equipment in London and other traffic hotspots while relying on the same gear in other parts of the country. Active network sharing holds obvious cost-saving attractions these days. Deploying nationwide 5G networks is likely to be an expensive business, and there is little optimism that 5G services will buoy telco revenues. Vodafone's net debt has already ballooned from €32.1 billion ($35.7 billion) in September 2018 to €48.1 billion ($53.5 billion) a year later because of takeover activity and spending on 5G spectrum licenses. By March, when the current fiscal year ends, Vodafone expects net debt to be around three times its adjusted annual earnings. It is under shareholder pressure to bring the figure down. Telefónica is similarly trying to improve the look of its balance sheet. Its own net debt equaled about €38.3 billion ($42.6 billion) last September, roughly 2.5 times its operating income last year, and reported sales grew less than 2% year-on-year in the first nine months of 2018. In a restructuring plan unveiled in November, Telefónica said it would spin off towers and other infrastructure assets, partly to foster network-sharing agreements. Vodafone is pursuing the same type of scheme. In recent years, numerous operators have plunged into "passive" network sharing, which entails using the same infrastructure sites but not the same electronic gear. Active sharing obviously goes much further, and not everyone is persuaded it makes long-term strategic sense. For starters, differentiating services on the usual basis of connection speed and quality would seem to be much harder if companies are using the same network elements. Decisions about vendors and upgrades would have to be taken jointly, unless one partner cedes control. From a regulatory perspective, too, active network sharing could smack of less competition. That said, UK operators do not appear to have any plans for spectrum sharing, giving them more scope for network service differentiation than operators that are also pooling their frequency resources. Active sharing seems unlikely to be welcomed by equipment vendors, though. In areas where Vodafone and O2 continue to operate separate radio equipment, there are two prospective basestation deals for the likes of Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia. Where equipment is shared, just one contract is on offer. If active sharing becomes pervasive, it could make telcos even more heavily reliant on a tiny number of giant vendors -- a worrying development for regulators and operators concerned about the current lack of supplier diversity. Nevertheless, from the vendor's point of view, active sharing is clearly better than no 5G investment. For this reason, Ericsson has played down the impact of major active sharing deals, such as last year's high-profile tie-up between China Telecom and China Unicom. "Sometimes one strong player is better than two weak ones," said Fredrik Jejdling, Ericsson's networks chief, during an interview with Light Reading last year. Beyond these considerations, Vodafone reckons MORAN technology should help to reduce energy consumption as well as the overall number of masts that are needed in the UK's 5G market. That will appeal to policymakers and climate-change activists who want to see the telecom industry do more to limit its impact on the environment. Eager to show willing, Vodafone is already making some unconventional moves into biomethane, which uses gases from sewage and other waste products instead of more harmful (but less smelly) emissions. "You put it into a converter unit, and it will power a site in Birmingham," said Scott Petty, Vodafone UK's chief technology officer, at a recent dinner. 5G century Vodafone also took the opportunity today to boast that its 5G service is now available in more than 100 locations and that it can now offer 5G service roaming between the UK and Ireland. spud

Vodafone 5G coverage increases at home and abroad By James Rogerson 13 January 2020 https://5g.co.uk/news/vodafone-5g-coverage-increases/5124/ Vodafone isn’t slowing down with its 5G coverage expansion, as it has now brought 5G to Belfast, Edinburgh and Leeds, as well as improving its coverage in Greater Manchester with the addition of 5G sites in the towns of Cheadle, Rochdale and Stockport. That means in total Vodafone 5G is now available in 40 UK towns and cities. That still puts Vodafone behind EE, which is the UK leader for 5G coverage with 50 towns and cities, but the gap is closing fast. And Vodafone actually is ahead if you include 5G roaming locations, as it’s the only network to offer this (other than VOXI, which it owns). And its 5G roaming has also recently improved, with the addition of 5G in Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Galway and Waterford in the Republic of Ireland. These join existing 5G roaming locations in Germany, Spain and Italy, and make for 68 roaming locations that you can get 5G in on Vodafone, and over 100 locations in total. 5G roaming is included as standard on Vodafone’s 5G plans, so right now this a major advantage for the network if you tend to travel abroad often. New tech for a faster rollout Finally, Vodafone has also announced that it has become the first UK network to successfully introduce 5G multi-operator radio access network (MORAN) technology, a technology which allows multiple networks to share a single mobile base station. Going forward that could mean fewer masts need to be erected, and in turn it should both save energy and potentially speed up the rollout of 5G for Vodafone and other networks. Vodafone UK Chief Executive Officer Nick Jeffery said: “We have started the new year as we mean to go on. We now offer 5G in double the number of places than our nearest rival and we have significantly boosted the capacity of our network. It is ready for the arrival in 2020 of some great new 5G handsets and the next big software release bringing ultra-low latency. Together, these will push 5G to the next level.” Whether you opt for 5G on Vodafone or another network, it’s worth making the move. Vodafone notes for example that there’s almost no buffering or lag time on 5G, making it a perfect partner for the network’s entertainment services, with the Spotify Premium, Amazon Prime Video, Sky Sports Mobile TV or NOW TV Entertainment Pass you can get with some plans working up to 10 times faster on 5G. spud

Higher earnings at Vodafone's Irish unit Updated / Thursday, 9 Jan 2020 18:06 https://www.rte.ie/news/business/2020/0109/1105399-higher-earnings-at-vodafones-irish-unit/ Earnings at the Irish arm of mobile phone giant, Vodafone last year increased by 1.4% to €175.3 million. According to accounts just filed with the Companies Office, Vodafone Ireland Ltd recorded the increase in Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortisation (EBITDA) as revenues increased by 1.4% to €946.5m in the 12 months to the end of March last. The firm, led by Cork native, Anne O'Leary, is the market leader in Ireland concerning telecommunications with 2.3 million customers across mobile, broadband, fixed line and TV. Numbers employed at the firm last year went up from 1,048 to 1,067 as staff costs increased by 7.5% from €93 million to €100 million. Pay to directors last year decreased from €2.29 million to €2.09 million made up of €1.7 million, €255,000 in pension payments and €52,000 in pension contributions. The company recorded a pre-tax loss of €5 million after enjoying a pre-tax profit of €5.6 million in 2018 fiscal year. The pre-tax loss takes account of non-cash depreciation and amortisation charges of €166.6 million. The directors state that the increase in revenues was driven, in part, by contract mobile phone base growth. The directors state that its customers now have 1.1 million devices 4G enabled and this is reflected in a 26% year-on-year growth in new 4G enabled plans. The company's cost of sales decreased from €430.3 million to €426 million with operating costs increasing from €329.7 million to €344.5 million. The directors state that "while the operating environment remains challenging Vodafone continues to evolve and innovate in order to remain relevant and to deliver value to our customers. By doing so, we continue to maintain a strong and robust business model". A breakdown of the employees shows 159 employed in sales and distribution; 348 in marketing; 157 in customer operations; 152 in networks; 69 in billing; 103 in finance, 50 in other staff functions and 29 in human resources. The firm's shareholder funds at the end of last March stood at €657 million. The company's cash pile decreased during the year from €11.26 million to €10.33 million. spud

Courtesy of CNBC India (also reported on other sources) China Mobile has held early stage talks with Bharti Airtel and Vodafone India to jointly develop a cloud network in the country, according to a Mint report. The largest mobile operator in China is keen to enter the Indian market, the report said. “The top executives of China Mobile met senior managements of Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea separately in December. China Mobile is interested in the Indian market and wants to come as a holding company with either of these two companies or even both," Mint quoted an unnamed source as saying. China Mobile has proposed a holding company structure which is similar to what Singtel has with Airtel, but for growing the cloud services market in India, the report said. “China Mobile has grown the cloud space in its home market and is now scouting for investment opportunities overseas. It has initially proposed a structure which is similar to what Singtel has with Airtel, but for growing the cloud services market here," Mint quoted the person cited above as saying. At present, Bharti Telecom is the single-largest shareholder in Bharti Airtel with about 41 percent stake. Singtel owns 48 percent in Bharti Telecom, which gives it a 35 percent stake in Bharti Airtel. The investment will come through China Mobile Investment Holdings Co. Ltd, the investment arm of China Mobile, which was established in 2016 as an independent entity to look at investment opportunities and manage its portfolios. If the talks end in an equity investment, it will give the two Indian operators the financial muscle to fight Reliance Jio in the highly competitive telecom battleground and offer cutting-edge cloud services to accommodate increasing digitisation and the roll-out of 5G technology which entails storing large amounts of data on the cloud, the Mint report said. Bharti Airtel already offers cloud services under ‘Airtel Business’ even though mobile services fetch most of its revenue. In June 2019, Vodafone Idea Business Services tied up with Microsoft to help firms adopting hybrid and cloud-based models to host their applications. If a deal materialises, it would also bode well for China Mobile which has been hunting for investment avenues given an almost saturated domestic market, the report said. China Mobile is the largest wireless carrier in China with 930 million mobile customers and 170 million wireline customers. It offers data services, wireless data traffic services, mobile data solutions, telecommunications network planning design and consulting services, and technology support.

Vodafone Germany plans partnerships to market fibre connections Thursday 9 January 2020 | 10:25 CET | News https://www.telecompaper.com/news/vodafone-germany-plans-partnership-with-deutsche-glasfaser-nano-trench-primevest-capital-partners-to-market-fibre-connections--1322146 Vodafone Germany intends to cooperate with partners such as Deutsche Glasfaser, Nano-Trench, Primevest Capital Partners and municipalities to market fibre connections for 175,000 households, spokesperson for the company Thorsten Georg Hopken told Golem.de. Primevest Capital Partners provides financing for the construction of fibre networks. The planning and construction of a number of networks in Hoppegarten and Berlin has already begun, the report said. Austria-based Nano-Trench has developed a particular trenching process. According to Vodafone, the cable is laid 8 to 12 centimeters deep into the asphalt surface, but without cutting it. In March 2018, municipalities in North Rhine-Westphalia said that trenching activities can damage road infrastructure. In general, Vodafone is the operator of the network for each fibre project and does not rent the "last mile", the spokesperson said. In the case of cooperation such as with Deutsche Glasfaser, the partner is usually the owner of the network. Vodafone then leases the network infrastructure and takes over operation and marketing. Vodafone handles fibre expansion in industrial parks alone, acting as owner and operator of the network. spud
