There are more than 7.2 billion wireless connections, including 1.45 billion LTE connections, around the world today that are operating with the technology standards developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) [Ovum].
A digital transformation brought about through the power of connectivity is taking place in almost every industry. This transformation sets the scene for the next generation of wireless access – 5G – systems that are set for commercial availability sometime around 2020.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) provides a new path that can increase the flexibility required by mobile service providers and network operators to adapt and accommodate this dynamic market environment.
The whitepaper compares wireless Voice calls in LTE networks using Circuit Switched Fallback (CSFB) and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) – based on actual measurements. Further, the whitepaper compares CSFB and VoLTE to legacy technologies such as 2G and 3G. CSFB provides a mechanism to transfer an initiated voice call to legacy circuit-switched networks.
Expecting the era of 5G to arrive in 2020, the SK Telecom white paper outlines analysis, direction and methodologies of 5G network explaining vision, core technologies, services, requirements and spectrum.
As telecom networks are migrated to all-IP, voice service quality can be further enhanced. A new evolved HD voice solution has just been standardized by 3GPP as the next-generation, telecom-grade voice codec for conversational IMS-based voice services like voice over LTE (VoLTE).
This 4G Americas white paper compares the mobile broadband technologies of today, as well as the future technologies that are being standardized or planned, and their ability to deliver greater performance in the increasingly complex and challengin
The whitepaper discusses how to test TCP-based video streaming using Youtube as the measured service, it gives guidelines for evaluating video streaming quality, what are the Key Performance Indicators that should be measured and how the measurements should be done.
This white paper, developed by 4G Americas member companies using publicly available information, is a one-time overview of global 5G initiatives as of the first quarter of 2014. This white paper is only focused on the technology evolution of the wireless network.
LTE is the common global 4G standard for paired (FDD) and unpaired (TDD) licensed spectrum. We can now extend the benefits of LTE Advanced also to unlicensed spectrum, the shared resource used by multiple technologies such as Wi-Fi. This is an ideal solution for mobile operators to augment mobile broadband and help to meet the 1000x challenge.
An LTE Direct workshop organized by Qualcomm and Samsung in May 2013 brought together thought leaders from Deutsche Telekom, DOCOMO, KDDI, Orange, Placecast, Samsung, SAP, Sapient, SKT, Softbank, Tagged, and Verizon.
5G mobile networks are expected to reach transmission speeds of about 10 Gbps, or 100 times faster than LTE. So, what's in store for your phone of the future? Here's a peek at the world of ultra-fast mobile communications that you might be enjoying by 2020.
