    How about $306? That's the split adjusted all time high hit in 2010

  • Is yesterday's Harmony news responsible for the huge gain yesterday is there something else going on?

  • Get ready – 5G will create waves of innovation that disrupt every industry

    Its easy to focus on technology and not the behaviours it makes possible and the expectations it changes. The internet seemed decent in the early dial-up age. We didn’t pine for images to load instantly. Buffering videos was the price you paid for accessing anything from anywhere. We didn’t know any better. Broadband changed that. The web became rich, fast, visual and, above all else, we didn’t go online, we were online.
    3G meant we could access everything, anywhere. We could send videos and images, the entire world of selfies, life broadcasting, microblogging, all made possible from rapid, constant data transfer. It is hard to see how, in 2005, we went to sleep without knowing what someone we didn’t really like across the world was having for lunch. It was this environment of data transfer that made possible the existence of businesses such as Uber, WhatsApp, Instagram and Seamless.
    4G changed the atomic unit of the web from images to videos. It made possible Snapchat stories and the 8bn video views on Facebook per day. It led to gifs and cinemagraphs becoming instant and fun, like beaming away your privacy on Periscope. We see 360 videos, basic virtual reality (VR) via Google cardboards, we’re seeing the inroads to content that feels real.
    4G killed patience. Dating became the act of a nonchalant swipe with Tinder, buying clothes followed suit, booking a hotel became drawing a H on Hotel Tonight, accessing your bank account a press of your thumb, getting food via Maple takes three seconds. 4G has given us seamless, immediate, frictionless transactions. Interfaces and interactions that feel personal and rich.
    Mobile strategy makes no sense

    It is common today to talk about the need for a mobile strategy, but I think this makes no sense. We need a strategy for the behaviours, expectations and opportunities of a smartphone-based world. We need to work around the impatient and spoiled, empowered and connected and to do so knowing anything and everything is possible.
    But get ready for the next communications revolution. The launch of ultrafast 5G mobile broadband – set for 2020 – will unleash speeds that scientists expect to be dozens or even hundreds of times faster than 4G. A lesson from history is that the arrival of 5G will create waves of innovation that disrupt every industry.
    Media and advertising need to adapt to the new processes, thinking and behaviour that this revolution will engender. 5G will supercharge virtual and artificial reality, making them more realistic than ever. Social media will be experienced in real-time as if our friends were actually in the room with us. Every known form of marketing – from sponsorship and pre-roll ads to event-based marketing – will be replicated in this virtual world. Yet for brands, the central mission will remain the same – to create meaningful connections with consumers.
    A shift in thinking

    So how do you stay meaningful while everything around you is changing? That will require a shift in thinking. We have to reboot our understanding of how media relates to people’s lives. We are surrounded by an array of screens and outlets that can become platforms for creating meaning. From the connected car to the smart mirror, and from wearables to ambient guides providing voices in our ears. With 5G this list will lengthen to include holograms and virtual worlds.

    We need to consider how we harness the amazing opportunities created by the plethora of new channels that are coming our way. Until now, we have defined media channels around a particular device – radio, TV, mobile. But this starts to make less sense in a world where everything is digitally-connected and where everything is stored in the cloud.
    Media has gone from the cinema screen, to the TV, to mobile. The screens are getting nearer to our eyes and becoming more personal, interactive and connected. The technology of the 5G world will bring brands even closer to us. They will be incredibly transformative to our lives.
    For each consumer, a brand carries a constellation of different meanings. Brands need to dig deep into the aspirations, attitudes and dreams of each group of consumers to identify the meanings that resonate with them most. The connections based on these insights drive greater involvement, trust and desire and help to cement the relationship between brand and consumer. This will become increasingly important for brands in the fragmented world of ultrafast broadband.
    Adblocking
    One of the key themes of Mobile World Congress is adblocking, with mobile operator Three’s announcement that it will enable adblocking across its UK and Italian networks. This is part of a wider battle in the media over who controls the right to own our attention – publisher or ISP, mobile operator or social media platform – or the users themselves? Brands, consumers and agencies need to ideate for this new environment and solve the challenge of how we use meaningful connections to create messages that consumers actively want to engage with.
    In the run up to the 5G transformation, finding ways to connect with consumers through the devices and platforms they use – and in ways they respond to – will be the number one aim of brands, entrepreneurs and innovators. What 5G connectivity and the internet of things really do is create a platform for services, partnerships and businesses to be built on.
    We will go from a world where mobile is everything to one where forging meaningful connections through a blizzard of innovation, creativity, and as-yet unimagined platforms and devices will be all that matters.

  • This is an exciting collaboration with Mitel that will be a disruptive game changer in the world wide mobile industry!!!

    Enter 5G

    The Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Alliance defines 5G as below:

    “5G is an end-to-end ecosystem to enable a fully mobile and connected society. It empowers value creation toward customers and partners, through existing and emerging use cases delivered with consistent experience and enabled by sustainable business models.”

    Essentially, LTE-A is the foundation of the 5G radio access network (RAN) below 6 GHz while the frequencies from 6 GHz to 100 GHz will explore new technologies in parallel. Take MIMO, for instance, where 5G raises the bar to Massive MIMO technology, a large array of radiating elements that extends the antenna matrix to a new level—16×16 to 256×256 MIMO—and takes a leap of faith in wireless network speed and coverage.

    5G TD FDD TDE LTE 4G Connectivity Carrier Network Tower Radio MBB Connected City IoT -9



    The early blueprint of 5G pilot networks mostly comprises of beamforming technology and small cell base stations. The companies like Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung have launched pilot projects using these two technology building blocks and so far results have been encouraging.

    The goals of 5G technology can be summarized in the following value points:

    1,000x increase in capacity
    Support for 100+ billion connections
    Up to 10Gbit/s speeds
    Below 1ms latency

    How 4G and 5G differ…

    1. First and foremost, while the LTE-based 4G networks are going through a rapid deployment, 5G networks mostly comprise of research papers and pilot projects. The wireless industry is broadly targeting 2020 for the widespread deployment of 5G networks.

    2. Wireless networks till 4G mostly focused on the availability of raw bandwidth, while 5G is aiming on providing pervasive connectivity to lay grounds for fast and resilient access to the Internet users, whether they are on a top of a skyscraper or down under a subway station. Although LTE standard is incorporating a variant called machine type communications (MTC) for the IoT traffic, 5G technologies are being designed from grounds up to support MTC-like devices.

    3. The 5G networks are not going to be a monolithic network entity and will be built around a combination of technologies: 2G, 3G, LTE, LTE-A, Wi-Fi, M2M, etc. In other words, 5G will be designed to support a variety of applications such as the IoT, connected wearables, augmented reality and immersive gaming.

    Unlike its 4G counterpart, 5G network will offer the ability to handle a plethora of connected devices and a myriad of traffic types. For example, 5G will provide ultra-high-speed links for HD video streaming as well as low-data-rate speeds for sensor networks.

    4. The 5G networks will pioneer new architectures like cloud RAN and virtual RAN to facilitate a more centralized network establishment and make the best use of server farms through localized data centers at the network edges.

    5. Finally, 5G will spearhead the use of cognitive radio techniques to allow the infrastructure to automatically decide about the type of channel to be offered, differentiate between mobile and fixed objects, and adapt to conditions at a given time. In other words, 5G networks will be able to serve the industrial Internet and Facebook apps at the same time.

    They are increasing the authorized shares by four fold. Currently a little over 100 million share OS. That means 40 cent shares will be work 10 cents and they will have to do a much bigger reverse split to stay Nasdaq compliant. Am I the only person that sees that this is a disaster in the making? Am I missing something? It seems obvious to me

  • How weird is that. He owns 172,000 shares.
