TechEconomy.ng receives Enextgen's support on   Broadband RoundTable' series

TechEconomy.ng has started a “Broadband
RoundTable” Thought Leadership Series; an all-inclusive opportunity for
the telecoms Subscribers/Consumer, Service Providers, Investors and the
Regulator to bare their minds with regard broadband infrastructure deployment
in the country.





Enextgen Wireless is also
supporting the Thought Leadership Series, which is open to telecom industry
stakeholder to make factual submissions (thought leadership piece) aimed at
proffering solutions to identified challenges in the industry.





Why are we doing this?

Speaking on the rationale behind the initiative, the Editor of TechEconomy.ng,
Peter Oluka, said that broadband infrastructure is no longer a
“nice-to-have” amenity for Nigerian cities rather an essential need.





Broadband access and adoption, he said, will help promote economic
development and social equity while enabling public health (telemedicine),
public safety (like smart transport), educational opportunities for Nigerians
around the country, among other enormous gains. 





In his words:   Talking about infrastructure, 5G telecommunications technology
is coming (almost here) and will change the landscape.





The 5G (Fifth generation) wireless is the next mobile technology standard,
based on the 3GPP Release 15 mobile wireless networking
standard, that will be succeeding the current 4G/LTE technology.





5G is already being deployed in countries such as the United States, United
Kingdom, China, etc. Its large-scale deployment is expected to start
in 2020.





 By 2021, the number of 5G connections is forecast to reach a figure of
between 20 million and 100 million. Some estimates put the figure at 200
million. Spending on 5G mobile infrastructure for that same year is forecast to
be at around 2.3 billion U.S. dollars.





 5G technology and related interoperability,
government, access and security standards are all in a process of development
across geographies, companies and standard-setting bodies.





 Presently, in Nigeria the telcos are faced with multifaceted challenges as
they deploy 4G! The government through the industry regulator    Nigerian
Communications Commission (NCC) has introduced a number of initiatives to
ensure the all-important infrastructure is deployed, but the challenges keep
increasing. So, we would like a situation where the regulator and the operators
present the cases to the public who will in-turn suggest how best to get these
things done. Technological development is not waiting for us.





 We have read about cases where States and LGAs are making life miserable
for these operators. What can be done?  





 The Regulator – Nigerian
Communications Commission has received a lot of accolades for her
interventional role to ensure some of these issues are removed for smooth
deployment of services. Infact, the NCC has developed some policy interventions
to speedy deployment of services, especially in the rural areas through the
USPFund, InfraCo model, meetings with the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, State
Visits, Stakeholders engagement, etc. But, how long will it take to solve the
problems? Will 4G ever be deployed across Nigeria? Why would the ‘Government’
grant NCC the powers to regulate the sector and at the same time, subtly
challenge her authority over some jurisdictions like we have seen cases where
sister agencies tend to usurp NCC's authorities? What is the way forward?





 So,   Broadband RoundTable' will be
issue based and everybody is welcome for constructive engagement', Oluka added.





Speaking on why Enextgen Wireless is supporting the Thought Leadership
Series, the CEO, Engineer Remi Adeyeye, said,   The issues are numerous. The
Operators are nearly paying with their blood to keep the Cell Sites up and
running.





 On the other hand, what is the quality of the service (QoS) of the already
deployed services? The consumer wants to know!





 So, we believe that
  Broadband RoundTable' will be one of its kind, because everybody
would have a say in a respectful manner’ and let’s have a common ground to
agree and move this sector forward  .
