And thus, here comes Rakuten,” Amin said.

Featuring in this month’s Technology Magazine and the upcoming November edition of Mobile Magazine, T-Mobile’s company report showcases how the US telco is at the forefront of the advancement of 5G. Erin Raney, T-Mobile’s Senior Director Network Technology Services and Innovation has spent her entire 23-year telecommunications career at the telco giant, joining T-Mobile — then VoiceStream — in 2000. In the years since she has risen through the ranks and for the past seven years, has been the founder and leading force of T-Mobile’s Tech Experience innovation programme, and in 2022 opened T-Mobile’s first technology innovation centre, the Tech Experience 5G Hub. 

“Back when I started it was just making a simple call and being able to do that maybe from your car while you're in a major city or an urban area. Now you think about all the things that you leverage our network for from a services perspective, from just about anywhere. The technology evolution is truly fascinating,” she said.

T-Mobile works with partners such as Dell, with this partnership seeing T-Mobile developing solutions that make it easier for enterprise and government customers to embrace the 5G era in collaboration with Dell’s edge computing technologies — providing superfast speeds, ultra-low latency, and control they need to use new applications that can help to increase revenue and lower costs.
