The 2014 Mobile World Congress that was held from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona is billed as an industry-defining event; though the pace at which the mobile telecommunications industry continues to evolve makes the accurate definition and prediction of trends and especially their timescale for implementation a difficult task. However, having all of the major players under one extensive roof offers the opportunity to take stock, gauge opinions, talk to innovators at the forefront of technology and hopefully be able to see the wood for the 4Gs (or is that 5Gs now?).
Texas Instruments (TI), and Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN), the world's specialist in mobile broadband, announced their collaboration on NSN's next generation of indoor small cell base stations. Based on NSN's Flexi Zone suite of products, the new indoor small cell base stations are expected to support a record 400 active indoor users, compared to 32 users supported today, in a power over Ethernet envelope.

Mobile TETRA LTE radio system from Cassidian passes its first functional test by the German Armed Forces
Cassidian has supplied a customer with the world’s first prototype of a mobile TETRA LTE radio system, which will allow voice and broadband data services to be used in parallel. As part of the German Armed Forces’ highly mobile cellular networks study, HochZeN (Hochmobile Zellulare Netzwerke), the system passed its first functional test when it was accepted by the Armed Forces’ Technical Centre for Information Technology and Electronics (WTD 81) in November.
The latest entry in Madden's blog on the Richardson RFPD website is titled, "Active Antenna Systems Reach the Tipping Point." The article covers how China Mobile is driving the industry to massive deployment of active antenna systems (AAS) solutions, as well as the application of simple AAS solutions in frequency-division duplexing (FDD) communications for crowded, urban areas. The article concludes with Mobile Experts' forecast of a 40 percent average market growth for AAS during the next five years.
