T-Mobile launched 5G Advanced Network Solutions (ANS), a suite of supercharged, managed network solutions that give enterprises more flexibility. 5G ANS leverages T-Mobile’s 5G network and spectrum to give customers the level of performance they need where they need it. The company also announced collaborations with Dell Technologies, Ericsson, and Nokia to deliver 5G ANS. Customers like global racing league SailGP are already using 5G ANS to reduce latency by up to 50% compared to Wi-Fi and CBRS spectrum and give real-time analytics.
T-Mobile 5G ANS strives for a new level of flexibility with three 5G advanced network options so enterprises can find the right solution for the right situation, saving money, time and delivering just-right performance.
5G ANS is T-Mobile’s answer to one-size-fits all 5G Private Networks. 5G ANS gives customers three options to get the low latency, high speeds, reliability, and control they need to finally unlock their data’s potential: 5G connectivity with a Public Mobile Network, a Hybrid Mobile Network, and a Private Mobile Network. Customers have the option to add compute to each option or use their own compute provider. Each solution is fully managed.
Customers who need more reliability and faster download speeds than legacy networks provide can use the T-Mobile Public Network for a wide variety of applications from smart meter applications to tracking optimization and more. T-Mobile’s public network is architected so that data travels less distance from the device to the compute resource and back.
Customers who need even faster speeds, lower latency and/or dedicated reliability can use the Hybrid Mobile Network. This is ideal for things like immersive VR training, computer vision and inspections, and other demanding applications, without the expense of a fully private solution.
Customers who need the highest speeds, reliability and ultra-low latency can use the Private Mobile Network. A private solution is needed for only the most demanding applications, like industrial automation in a factory or fully autonomous robots.
With dedicated 5G spectrum in low-band, mid-band and mmWave, and more sub-6 GHz spectrum holdings on average nationwide, T-Mobile is looking to give customers flexible solutions. For instance, while mmWave can be great for fully private networks in one location, it’s not the best solution where it’s unable to connect through barriers, where mid-band comes in.
5G Advanced Network Solutions in Action
T-Mobile showcased 5G ANS at a recent event with SailGP, the purpose-led global racing championship. These superfast boats are also massive IoT devices capturing 240k data points per second. All that data travels, via a T-Mobile Hybrid 5G Network solution, back to SailGP’s compute platform to be processed and then back to the remote race control center. This superfast data transfer helped coaches and athletes make better decisions while racing at highway-like speeds. It also brought fans closer to the action, giving them an unmatched viewing experience.
