LTE Release 12 - taking another step toward the Networked Society

in Whitepaper, 3GPP Release 12, Ericsson, LTE

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:

LTE Device Ecosystem: The Future Brought to Life

in Whitepaper, RCR Wireless, LTE

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.

Delivering Public Safety Communications with LTE

in Whitepaper, Public Safety, LTE

Today there are two separate technology families for providing wide-area wireless communications: commercial cellular networks and dedicated public safety systems.

LTE, Telephony and Battery Life

in Whitepaper, IMS, VoLTE, LTE

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.  

RCS VoLTE Interoperability Event 2012: Multivendor testing in global RCS/VoLTE Networks

in Whitepaper, MultiService Forum, RCS, 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).

LTE and the 1800 Mhz opportunity

in Whitepaper, Northstream, LTE

This Northstream white paper examines the take-up and status of LTE two years after the first commercial launch and analyses the key aspects that will determine its future success.

4G Mobile Broadband Evolution: Release 10, Release 11 and Beyond - HSPA, SAE/LTE and LTE-Advanced

in Whitepaper, 4G Americas, LTE-Advanced, HSPA, LTE

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

MIMO and Smart Antennas for Mobile Broadband Networks

in Whitepaper, 4G Americas, Small Cell, Smart Antenna, MIMO, LTE

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.

The Benefits of Digital Dividend

in Whitepaper, 4G Americas, LTE

The  term “Digital Dividend” usually refers to the spectrum released  by the switchover from analog to digital TV broadcasting. Digital dividend spectrum is ideally suited to providing cost-effective mobile and broadband wireless services representing a significant and important asset for a country’s economic and social development.

Policy Everywhere: A Strategic Imperative For Digital Lifestyle Providers

in Whitepaper, PCEF, PCRF, Tekelec, LTE

As operators transition to digital lifestyle providers, policy’s complexion will be transformed. This paper explores how policy’s application and scope will expand beyond the boundaries of the core network to subscriber devices, M2M devices, cloud providers, and service delivery, and OTT provider platforms.

Mobile Broadband Explosion: The 3GPP Wireless Evolution

in Whitepaper, 4G Americas, 3G, HSPA, LTE

This white paper discusses the evolution and capabilities of HSPA and LTE relative to other primary competing technologies. It explains how these technologies fit into the  International Telecommunications Union (ITU) roadmap that leads to  International Mobile Telecommunications-Advanced (IMT-Advanced) and beyond. 

HSPA+LTE Carrier Aggregation

in Whitepaper, 4G Americas, Carrier Aggregation, HSPA, LTE

The evolution of both HSPA+ and LTE standards has introduced aggregation of carriers for higher data rates, better load balancing and increased spectrum utilization, and since the dawn of LTE, the standard support for radio level interworking for HSPA and LTE radios has been included.

New Wireless Broadband Applications and Devices: Understanding the Impact on Networks

in Whitepaper, Report, 4G Americas, 4G, HSPA, LTE

Mass market mobile wireless applications and devices for the subscribers have exploded in recent years.  The proliferation of new applications, devices and services has led to increased signaling and data traffic flowing through HSPA and LTE mobile broadband networks. 

LTE voice evolution:Circuit-switched fallback

in Whitepaper, CSFB, LTE

In this paper, Qualcomm and Ericsson share their insights on using circuit-switched fallback, (CSFB) as a solution to this challenge. Find out more about recent deployment experiences and extensive testing that has been conducted on the first phase of voice evolution between packet and circuit-switched networks.
