Dense Air to offer Neutral Host 5G Densification Services in Australia

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 14 dicembre 2018

Dense Air today announced it had won spectrum in the six largest Australian cities, by participating in the ACMA 5G Spectrum Auction. The acquired spectrum supports 5G operation in 3GPP band n77/78.Dense Air is a new class of wholesale network operator, that “enhances and extends” coverage and capacity by offering neutral host “Carrier of Carriers” services, supporting multiple operators on the same physical 5G small cell or 5G femtocell. Dense Air will provide densification extensions to both enterprise and residential consumers, extending 5G coverage and capacity to the hardest to reach outdoor and indoor locations.Dense Air provides a fully managed service to both mobile and fixed network operators by the targeted mass deployment of small cells. The acquired spectrum assets in Australia enable Dense Air to start operations when the licenses are issued and handsets for the 5G eco-system, are available.Paul Senior, CEO of Dense Air said “We are absolutely thrilled to have acquired 5G spectrum in the major metro areas of Australia. Our spectrum enables us to offer a completely new type of wholesale service to 5G network operators. Dense Air will complement planned 5G deployments, by allowing much greater densification than can be achieved with macro cells alone. By offering both 5G enterprise small cells and 5G residential femtocells, we can in-fill missing coverage and enhance capacity. Our mission is to help improve an operator’s 5G business cases, which still remains very challenging for both MNOs and MVNOs alike”.

Worldwide spending on Telecom Services and Pay TV Services will increase by 0.6% in 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 12 novembre 2018

A notable decrease in the growth rate compared to the rate recorded in 2017 (1.2%) is mostly the consequence of new accounting rules introduced since the start of this year: mobile operators are now obliged to completely exclude their handset sales revenues from service revenues, which has had a negative impact on service revenues although the overall effect is neutral as handset sales would have gone up. “This is, of course, just a momentary effect,” said Kresimir Alic, senior program manager, IDC Worldwide Telecom Services Database. “We believe that the growth rate will recover as soon as next year.” Over of the 2017-2022 forecast period, the market is expected to remain in a positive mood, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.8%. Despite this negative effect, mobile will remain the largest market segment and its share is expected to reach 52% of the total market in 2018. The mobile market is set to grow at five-year CAGR of 1.2%, driven by increased mobile data usage and expanding M2M applications, which is offsetting declines in spending on mobile voice and messaging services. The fixed data services segment is another positive contributor: it is expected to represent 22% of total spending in 2018 and is set to grow at a 4% CAGR through 2022, largely driven by the need for higher bandwidth services. Spending on fixed voice services will decline at a -5% CAGR over the forecast period and will represent less than 9% of the total market by 2022.
From a geographic perspective, IDC expects the Americas to remain the largest services market with revenues of $624 billion in 2018. Asia/Pacific will follow in second place and EMEA in third with revenues of $541 billion and $483 billion respectively. However, the latter two regions will grow much faster than the Americas, mainly driven by the emerging country markets of South Asia and Africa.A graphic illustrating IDC’s forecast for worldwide telcoms services revenue by region over the 2017-2022 forecast period is available by viewing this press release on IDC.com.While there is still growth in some emerging markets the overall market for telecom services worldwide is now relatively mature as the latest forecasts show. “Developed and mature markets will only show marginal gains now, driven by technology migration and bandwidth needs,” said Eric Owen, group vice president, EMEA Telecommunications & Networking. “Most operators are now looking to invest in 5G and are struggling with the return on investment given the mature nature of the markets. Success will demand innovative and agile thinking from the operators coupled with some help from regulators in highly competitive markets such as Europe.”

KKR Forms Hospital Management Company SinoCare Group to Provide Quality Health Care Services to Patients in China

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 27 settembre 2018

Global investment firm KKR today announced the creation of SinoCare Group (“SinoCare” or the “Company”), a hospital investment and management platform company in China. SinoCare aims to provide high-quality health care services to patients in China through the acquisition, build-out and consolidation of hospitals.SinoCare will work alongside KKR to bring top medical resources and management experience that aim to improve service capabilities and operational efficiencies to health care service providers within the SinoCare platform, as well as to address the high demand for quality medical services in China. The Company will build its platform through organic growth and acquisitions. Additionally, KKR’s support will enable partner hospitals and care centers to be on the leading edge of health care technology and global best practices.In conjunction with the launch of SinoCare, KKR also announced that the Company has acquired a majority stake in leading Chinese hospital management company, HeTian Hospital Management Co. (“HeTian”). The investment will support HeTian’s continued development of new medical practice areas, its expansion plans and scope to service more patients. The partnership between HeTian and SinoCare aims to serve as a model for how Chinese health care providers can be substantially enhanced through the support of a leading international investor and increased access to global best practices and medical resources.Established by Founder and Chairman Dr. Li Fangjun, HeTian is a leading comprehensive health care provider in China. HeTian operates two general hospitals in Anhui province – Lu’An Shili Hospital and WuHe Hospital – and Lu’An HeTian Nephrosis Specialty Hospital, an operator of three dialysis centers. The group manages a total of 1,300 beds, in addition to overseeing the construction of a new hospital with 500 beds planned to be completed by 2020.SinoCare will support HeTian’s expansion and growth through acquisitions, with a focus in third- and fourth-tier cities where medical resources are scarce and quality health care services are lacking. This is consistent with the Chinese government’s encouragement of more medical resources being extended to lower-tier cities, where there is urgent need but currently limited supply and high costs for medical treatments. There are fewer than three hospital beds per 1,000 people in China’s fourth-tier and smaller cities, according to the National Health and Family Planning Commission.

G7 Speakers: Greater parliamentary scrutiny over intelligence services is needed

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 11 settembre 2018

EP Vice-President Pavel Telička is due to address the G7 Speakers’ Conference in Canada tomorrow on parliamentary oversight of intelligence activities.The Conference, gathering speakers from G7 countries’ parliaments and the European Parliament, is taking place in Halifax, Canada from 6 to 8 September and focussing on “Parliamentary Oversight and National Security”.Vice President Pavel Telička, due to address the Conference tomorrow morning on behalf of EP President Antonio Tajani, will stress the need to extend parliamentary oversight of operations by intelligence services at EU level, following increased cooperation among Member States.He will say:
“Operations of intelligence authorities fall within the competence of Member States”, but “recent events have pointed to the need to increase cooperation between national intelligence services and their supervisory bodies across the Union.” “In the European Parliament’s opinion, national parliaments should ensure meaningful oversight of intelligence activities. This implies that the committees and bodies in charge of such an oversight should have sufficient resources, technical expertise and legal means, as well as access to all relevant documents. At the same time, the European Parliament has consistently insisted, in various resolutions, on the need to strike the right balance between enhancing security, and ensuring democratic oversight.”
“It is our view that proper scrutiny should also be exerted at the EU level. In general, the European Parliament has a range of supervisory and control powers over security institutions such as Europol, Eurojust or the European Union’s Situation Centre (Sitcen). Nevertheless, we could do even more to improve democratic oversight on the European level, including developing rules for the European Parliament to have access to classified information.”
