4G Americas: Mobile Broadband Explosion

9 Sep


  • 1. Mobile Broadband Explosion The 3GPP Wireless Evolution August 2013
  • 2. Key Conclusions (1) • Mobile broadband – encompassing networks, devices, and applications – is becoming one of the most successful and fastest-growing industries of all time. • Computing itself is transitioning from a PC era to a mobile era. • Consumer and business applications have driven data demand until now, but machine-to-machine, also called Internet of Things, will generate progressively higher volumes of traffic in the future. • Cloud computing is an ever-larger factor in data demand, involving data synchronization, backup, cloud-based applications, and streaming. • The wireless industry is addressing exploding data demand through a combination of spectrally more efficient technology, denser deployments, small cells, HetNets, self-configuration, self-optimization, and offload. • Initial LTE deployments have been faster than any new wireless technology previously deployed.

  • 3. • LTE has become the global cellular-technology platform of choice for both GSM-UMTS and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)/Evolved Data Optimized (EV-DO) operators. Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) operators are adopting LTE-Time Division Duplex (LTE- TDD). • The wireless technology roadmap now extends through IMT-Advanced, with LTE-Advanced defined to meet IMT-Advanced requirements. LTE-Advanced is capable of peak theoretical throughput rates that exceed 1 gigabit per second (Gbps). Operators began deploying LTE-Advanced in 2013. Key capabilities include carrier aggregation, more advanced smart antennas, and better HetNet support. • HSPA+ provides a strategic performance roadmap advantage for incumbent GSM-HSPA operators. Features such as multi-carrier operation, Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), and higher-order modulation offer operators numerous options for upgrading their networks, with many of these features (including multi-carrier, higher-order modulation) being available as network software upgrades. With all planned features implemented, HSPA+ peak rates will eventually reach a top theoretical speed of 336 Mbps on the downlink and 69 Mbps on the uplink.
