SK Telecom (SKT), South Korea’s largest mobile operator, set up a 200-member taskforce to accelerate rollout of 5G services, with the goal of commercialising the next-generation technology ahead of local rivals KT and LG Uplus. SKT, with a 48 per cent market share, said it is making an all-out effort to launch 5G services “as soon as possible”, The Korea Times reported. KT, the second ranked mobile player by subscribers, earlier announced plans to commercialise its 5G network by 2019.
Nokia announced it signed a deal to supply 5G base stations to NTT Docomo, Japan’s largest mobile operator, marking the vendor’s first major 5G contract after the first formal 5G New Radio (NR) standard was approved in December 2017. In a statement, Nokia said it will support Docomo’s 5G operation by upgrading existing baseband units and integrating its 5G NR-based AirScale hardware in the network, with 5G commercial service targeted by 2020, in time for the Tokyo Olympics.
U Mobile, the fourth largest mobile player in Malaysia, extended a five-year managed services contract with Ericsson, which is converting the operator’s business support system (BSS) into a real-time converged platform. Originally signed in 2012, the agreement was extended for another five years until 2022. In the ongoing contract, Ericsson is responsible for competence development, solution design, deployment and systems integration of the convergent billing solutions, and managed services.
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".
