Tulsa, Oklahoma joins the growing list of AT&T Fiber locations, which now numbers 55 markets. AT&T plans to reach 75 metros serving 12.5 million or more locations with its gigabit capable service by the middle of 2019. The service in the Tulsa area will reach Jenks, Owasso and other communities. As is the case with these AT&T Fiber launches, select neighborhoods and MDUs are targeted first in any given market, rather than a traditional overbuild with FTTP.
One of the most promising and competitive areas of telecom is software-defined wide-area networks (SD-WAN). The list of startups and product announcements is hard to keep up with. The idea is simple: Distributed organizations want an efficient, reliable and inexpensive way to traffic voice and data traffic between locations. To date, multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) and other techniques were used to do this. SD-WAN could revolutionize this task.
The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), the nascent nationwide first responder LTE network, today announced that five states now have opted into the program. FirstNet states now include Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, Virginia, and Wyoming. “Governors Hutchinson, Reynolds, Bevin, McAuliffe and Mead are taking critical steps to fulfill the final recommendations from the 9/11 Commission,” said FirstNet CEO Mike Poth in a press release.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
