Keynotes

  • Dish has revealed a new partner in time for its first deadline: Samsung.
    In order to develop a 5G network from scratch, the business joins Dish as a vendor.
  • O-RAN (Open Radio Access Network) is a modern, cloud-based technology that depends on off-the-shelf (rather than proprietary) hardware to build the network.
  • New Dish network promises to reach 20% of the population by June, which is a milestone on the route to eventually covering 70% by June 2023.

The Dish Network owes us a 5G network – it was the crux of the transaction that enabled T-Mobile to purchase Sprint, cutting our cellular carrier choices down to three. With Dish’s first deadline rapidly approaching, the firm has revealed a new partner: Samsung. The company joins Dish as a vendor as it works to create a 5G network from scratch.

The Dish wireless network isn’t creating just any old 5G network, though. It’s building the network on a newer, cloud-based technology dubbed O-RAN (Open Radio Access Network) that depends on off-the-shelf (rather than proprietary) gear. Samsung is offering vRAN (Virtualized Radio Access… you get it) software and radio equipment to assist in making the entire thing work.

Dish guaranteed the FCC it would cover 20% of the population with its new network by June of this year, which is a milestone on the way to eventually reaching 70% of the population by June of 2023. The project has been beset by delays, and for those keeping track at home, June is next month.

Dish’s latest earnings conference didn’t present the rosiest image of the network’s current situation, though; as of February, the network was still in beta testing with friends and family in Las Vegas. Vegas has a lot of things, but it does not actually contain 20% of the US population.

The dish isn’t the only US-based network provider that Samsung has collaborated with. It previously helped Verizon expand its low-band nationwide 5G network with a technology called DSS, or Dynamic Spectrum Sharing. Let’s only hope that this new relationship with Dish generates better outcomes than that venture did since the clock is ticking.
