Video is increasingly becoming one of the most pervasive technologies in terms of everyday usage, both for entertainment and in the enterprise environments. Mobile video is responsible for a majority of the growth seen in mobile broadband data volume.
This document has been produced by the TETRA and Critical Communications Association (TCCA) Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG) to provide supporting information and guidelines for critical communications users, operators and other interested parties who are considering the implementation of ission critical mobile broadband services.
The wireless communication systems of the future will have to enable access to information and sharing of data anywhere and anytime for anyone and anything. As a consequence of this, the systems of tomorrow will have to overcome the following three main challenges:
The number of LTE devices and manufacturers is exploding. This special report explores how the transition to LTE networks is changing the device ecosystem from design to test and repair, and the factors that affect the successful LTE device launch.
In recent media, much attention has been paid to the battery life of VoLTE enabled LTE phones in comparison to existing 2G and 3G circuit switched telephony. This ST Ericsson white paper aims to address the confusion and uncertainty around the topic and demonstrate the true potential of VoLTE.
This white paper provides a summary of the RCS (Rich Communications Suite) VoLTE (Voice over LTE) Interoperability event 2012 which took place from September 24th – October 12th 2012. The event was jointly organised by the Multi‐Service Forum (MSF), European Telecoms Standards Institute (ETSI) and the GSM Association (GSMA).
On a global basis, subscriptions to HSPA mobile broadband are growing rapidly. There were 900 million global subscriptions for HSPA at of the end of December 2011, rising to 1 billion by 2Q 2012. This number is expected to reach 2.8 billion by the end of 2015. There were 476 commercial HSPA networks in 181 countries worldwide reported in September 2012.4
The 4G Americas white paper focuses on the practical aspects of deploying Smart Antenna systems in Radio Access Systems. Key developments in MIMO and Smart Antennas, the practical aspects of deploying smart antenna systems in Radio Access Systems (RAS) and detailed information on the new antenna systems are covered in this white paper.
