South Korea's SK Telecom has been in the limelight over the past year as one of a handful of service providers playing a key role in the development of a global 5G ecosystem. Among other things, it has teamed up with Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERIC) and BMW on what it claims is the world's first 5G connected car, developed fronthaul technology the South Korean government has backed as a standard, and deployed a 5G trial network in the country's "K-City," a testbed for emerging technologies.
The Indian telecom industry is going through confusing times. On the one hand, there seems to be a push to develop an ecosystem for 5G, a next-generation mobile technology that will cost billions to deploy. On the other, operators are wrestling with debt problems and struggling to remain afloat. India's government aims to deploy 5G by 2020, in line with authorities and operators in other parts of the world.
Ongoing consolidation in India has prompted the unceremonious exit of foreign telcos from the Indian market. From Vodafone India to Aircel, these operators have one after another bitten the dust. While India's vast population has been a strong draw for operators from outside the country, the difficulties of operating a business in the Indian market have ultimately taken a heavy toll. Recent deals illustrate the point.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
