  • 5G Americas, the industry trade association and voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas, today announced the publication of 5G Services and Use Cases, an insightful industry report on 5G technology addressing new trends in a broad range of use case categories and business models with disparate technical requirements and mapping them to 5G capabilities.

  • The white paper focuses its analysis on industry reliance on 5G and industry value in the 5G era. According to the white paper, industries requires higher bandwidth and lower latency will be more reliant on 5G; and the larger the market space is, the more commercial value a service can deliver.

  • 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].

  • Interference is inherent to any LTE-A HetNet deployment; LTE-A offers a variety of complex and advanced techniques at both the network and the device level to mitigate this interference. 

  • 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.

  • This 4G Americas white paper describes in detail the recommendations and best practices for Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Rich Communications Service (RCS) implementations and offerings.

  • 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 whitepaper discusses optimal ways to test the quality of voice service in broadband wireless networks (e.g. 3G and 4G/LTE) using PESQ and POLQA algorithms.

  • 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.
