1 Connecticut Siting Council Telecommunications Symposium Alternative Technologies for Infrastructure On behalf of T-Mobile USA, presented by Steven Zupp and Laura Altschul March 2, 2006

2 Wireless Facts: It’s All About Consumer Demand 2005 consumer statistics from T-Mobile USA  Number of text/IM/ messages billion, or, on average, 784 per customer  Number of times customers used their phone (calls placed and received) - 4Q05, on average, each customer placed or received 341 calls - At that rate, there were billion calls placed or received - proprietary and confidential-

3 Wireless Facts: It’s All About Consumer Demand

4 Foot Notes 1 By the close of 2005, wireless subscriptions will hit nearly 2 billion on a worldwide basis, with cellular mobile dominating the wireless technology field, according to a trends study from Deloitte Research 2 Tenth Report, Implementation of Section 6002(b) of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993; Annual Report and Analysis of Competitive Market Conditions With Respect to Commercial Mobile Services, WT Docket No , FCC , released Sept. 30, 2005, at page 73 3 BLS Series data 4 CTIA Wireless and Distress Calls

5 Today’s Landscape  What is important? - Providing seamless infrastructure, fulfilling e911 mandates - Industry surveys tell us #1 reason to own cell phones - personal & public safety, especially for families - Surveys also find that coverage issues at home and dropped calls lead the list of specific complaints  Supplementing existing networks in order to meet customers’ demands and improve use of voice, data and true mobility - Wireless is already integral to everyday living - Incumbent upon providers to design & build sites to meet rising use of handsets - For 2G, 2.5G, 3G, 4G

6 Next Generation  Let’s not forget another meaning of next generation -- today’s youth will rely completely on wireless - They will EXPECT seamless coverage - wherever they live,work & play - And they will vote - from their handsets! How Many Kids Have Cell Phones? 46% of 10 to 18 year olds own a cell phone. On average children get their first cell phone at age to 11 year olds 14% 12 to 14 year olds 35% 15 to 17 year olds 67% 18 year olds 82% Source: GfK NOP Technology

7 A Balanced Solution  Why does placing cell site facilities seem adversarial? - Citizens want a voice, providers want to be heard, public officials want to ensure fair decision making, media wants to educate - This is somehow difficult to manage  When will we agree: this is all about a balanced solution? - This is above & beyond politics - How should we work together in order to provide seamless solutions?  Balanced solution = best solution for the right location and the right purpose

8 What Does “Wireless Alternative Technologies” Mean?  We’re living a communications evolution - every one of us is a stakeholder & has a responsibility to its progress  Providers’ technical evolution differs at different points in time - networks are not one size fits all  Supplement, fill in, reinforce, improve, strengthen - not replace  “Towers” is inaccurate/ “cell sites” is correct - Correcting public perception of the words we use  “Alternative” is a misnomer

9 Types of Cell Sites

10 Pole-Mounted APs Wi-Fi Enabled Mobile Devices Wireless AP Interconnections Wi-Fi Coverage Area  To standalone AP  To cell site hosting AP  To cell site with PTP wireless link to AP  Self-healing  Self-optimizing  Self-configuring  Fat pipes Single, Aggregated Mesh Backhaul Examples of Future Alternative Technical Solutions: Wi-Fi Mesh Overlay

11 Bandwidth Real-Time Voice Streaming Video Music Cellular Technologies SMS Web surfing Videophone Ringtones IM Photos Gaming Addl Next Gen Apps Data Applications Broadband Wireless Technologies

12 Wi-Fi Standards Status Based on the current trajectory of technical advances, Wi-Fi standards may have formalized the required aspects of mobility by 2008/2009 Technical Viability Coverage InterferenceMobility QOS CapacitySecurity

13 T-Mobile Initiatives Will Become Commonplace T-Mobile Core Network Access Point UMA/Wi-Fi GSM / UMTS UMA/Wi-Fi Internet Wide Area At Home HotSpots / Hotzone (Wi-Fi Mesh) Internet Integrated Wi-Fi / UMTS Handsets

14 Using Cellular and Broadband Wireless Access Networks Together T-Mobile 3G UMTS Nationwide Network T-Mobile Wi-Fi Mesh Network T-Mobile “UMA” Home Wi-Fi At Work On the Road At Home

15 A Balanced Network  Insert diagram

16 Keeping Our Eyes on the Prize  All site types are alternatives - DAS, flag poles, macro sites, antennas on utility poles, micro cells, etc. are infrastructure alternatives - All are part of network and community solutions  Our common job is to serve our citizens, customers & build a consistently reliable infrastructure for emergency services - Everyone wins when we operate from a platform of clear & transparent communications - There is no alternative for trust
