A new look for LteWorld

in Blog

Today we have given a new look to LteWorld which will allow users to post their blogs and and use forums easily.

  • ITU & 3GPP driven 5G has huge potential in utilising Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) to enhance radio access and core network elements. Many operators and equipment manufacturers have already invested heavily to reap the benefits of this technology.

  • Singapore has best 4G LTE experience with a 46.64Mbps average download speed among 77 nations according to a recent OpenSignal report. South Korea is not far behind with an average of 45.85Mbps speed. European countries Norway & Hungary too have LTE average speed greater than 40Mbps. By contrast, the US has very low average 13.98Mbps.

  • Last week Apple announced a new generation of iPhones: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. The new iPhone features A11 Bionic chip, Retina HD displays and wireless charging, just to name a few.

  • 5G New Radio (NR) development is part of continuous mobile broadband evolution process to meet the requirements of 5G as outlined by IMT-2020, similar to earlier evolution of 3G & 4G wireless networks.

  • In an Interview with LteWorld, Navin Vohra, Vice President, Wireless Sales, Asia Pacific, CommScope, explained CommScope's role and offerings in LTE technology domain. Here’s what he had to say on LTE technologies and trends in APAC:

  • TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Forecast Service new data reveals that global LTE subscribers are projected to grow 35% compounded annually over the next five years, from 516 million to 2.3 billion. To date, LTE adoption has been strongest in South Korea, where the 4G technology accounted for 63% of wireless subscribers in 2014.

  • Alcatel-Lucent has signed a memorandum of understanding with South Korean telecommunications provider, KT, under which the companies will collaborate to advance 5G development in South Korea with initial testing focusing on virtualized RAN to support next generation mobile architecture.

  • T-Mobile US has leased its spectrum to other carriers in an effort to expand its LTE network to benefit their customers.
