  1. Connecticut Siting Council Telecommunications SymposiumAlternative Technologies for Infrastructure On behalf of T-Mobile USA, presented by Steven Zupp and Laura Altschul March 2, 2006

  2. Wireless Facts: It’s All About Consumer Demand 2005 consumer statistics from T-Mobile USA • Number of text/IM/email messages • 14.9 billion, or, on average, 784 per customer • Number of times customers used their phone (calls placed and received) • 4Q05, on average, each customer placed or received 341 calls • At that rate, there were 75-80 billion calls placed or received - proprietary and confidential-

  3. Wireless Facts: It’s All About Consumer Demand

  4. Foot Notes 1 By the close of 2005, wireless subscriptions will hit nearly 2 billion on a worldwide basis, with cellular mobile dominating the wireless technology field, according to a trends study from Deloitte Research 2 Tenth Report, Implementation of Section 6002(b) of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993; Annual Report and Analysis of Competitive Market Conditions With Respect to Commercial Mobile Services, WT Docket No. 05-71, FCC 05-173, released Sept. 30, 2005, at page 73 3 BLS Series data 4 CTIA Wireless 9-1-1 and Distress Calls

  5. Today’s Landscape • What is important? • Providing seamless infrastructure, fulfilling e911 mandates • Industry surveys tell us #1 reason to own cell phones - personal & public safety, especially for families • Surveys also find that coverage issues at home and dropped calls lead the list of specific complaints • Supplementing existing networks in order to meet customers’ demands and improve use of voice, data and true mobility • Wireless is already integral to everyday living • Incumbent upon providers to design & build sites to meet rising use of handsets • For 2G, 2.5G, 3G, 4G

  6. Next Generation • Let’s not forget another meaning of next generation -- today’s youth will rely completely on wireless • They will EXPECT seamless coverage - wherever they live,work & play • And they will vote - from their handsets! How Many Kids Have Cell Phones? • 46% of 10 to 18 year olds own a cell phone. On average children get their first cell phone at age 14 • 10 to 11 year olds 14% • 12 to 14 year olds 35% • 15 to 17 year olds 67% • 18 year olds 82% • Source: GfK NOP Technology

  7. A Balanced Solution • Why does placing cell site facilities seem adversarial? • Citizens want a voice, providers want to be heard, public officials want to ensure fair decision making, media wants to educate • This is somehow difficult to manage • When will we agree: this is all about abalanced solution? • This is above & beyond politics • How should we work together in order to provide seamless solutions? • Balanced solution= best solution for the right location and the right purpose

  8. What Does “Wireless Alternative Technologies” Mean? • We’re living a communications evolution - every one of us is a stakeholder & has a responsibility to its progress • Providers’ technical evolution differs at different points in time - networks are not one size fits all • Supplement, fill in, reinforce, improve, strengthen - not replace • “Towers” is inaccurate/ “cell sites” is correct • Correcting public perception of the words we use • “Alternative” is a misnomer

  9. Types of Cell Sites

  10. Examples of Future AlternativeTechnical Solutions: Wi-Fi Mesh Overlay Single, Aggregated Mesh Backhaul Wi-Fi Coverage Area • To standalone AP • To cell site hosting AP • To cell site with PTP wireless link to AP Wi-Fi Enabled Mobile Devices Pole-Mounted APs Wireless AP Interconnections • Self-healing • Self-optimizing • Self-configuring • Fat pipes

  11. Data Applications Broadband Wireless Technologies Real-Time Videophone Streaming Video Addl Next Gen Apps Web surfing Photos Music Bandwidth Gaming Email Ringtones Voice SMS IM Cellular Technologies

  12. Wi-Fi Standards Status Based on the current trajectory of technical advances, Wi-Fi standards may have formalized the required aspects of mobility by 2008/2009 Security Capacity Technical Viability Coverage QOS Interference Mobility

  13. T-Mobile Initiatives Will Become Commonplace At Home UMA/Wi-Fi Access Point Internet T-Mobile CoreNetwork Wide Area GSM / UMTS Internet HotSpots / Hotzone (Wi-Fi Mesh) UMA/Wi-Fi Integrated Wi-Fi / UMTS Handsets

  14. Using Cellular and Broadband Wireless Access Networks Together T-Mobile 3G UMTS Nationwide Network T-MobileWi-Fi Mesh Network T-Mobile “UMA” Home Wi-Fi On the Road At Home At Work

  16. Keeping Our Eyes on the Prize • All site types are alternatives • DAS, flag poles, macro sites, antennas on utility poles, micro cells, etc. are infrastructure alternatives • All are part of network and community solutions • Our common job is to serve our citizens, customers & build a consistently reliable infrastructure for emergency services • Everyone wins when we operate from a platform of clear & transparent communications • There is no alternative for trust
