By the end of 2013, global LTE-related cellular subscriptions surpassed 230.9 million, 3.3 percrent of mobile subs, and will continue to grow at a CAGR of 36.6 perent between 2014 and 2019, exceeding 2 billion. The extensive presence of LTE networks is also stimulating the deployment of VoLTE. By the end of 2014, there are expected to be 59.6 million VoLTE subscriptions in place, and it is expected that nearly 56 percent of LTE-related cellular subscriptions will be using VoLTE services by the end of 2019.
P3 Communications, a worldwide technical engineering, testing and consulting services company for the telecommunications industry, has selected the R&S PR100 portable receiver from Rohde & Schwarz as their instrument of choice for identifying and eliminating RF interference in 3G and 4G/LTE mobile networks. With units deployed across key mobile markets in the U.S., P3 Communications’ mobile network maintenance and engineering team is able to quickly and effectively identify RF interference negatively impacting customer quality of experience (QoE).
If you had any doubts that Brooklyn was fast becoming one of the hottest locales in the tech industry, look no further than the 5G Summit, held from April 23 to 25 at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering. Co-organized by the NYU WIRELESS research center and Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN), the conference, planned to be an annual event from now on, brought together industry leaders from across academia, business and government to explore the future of Fifth Generation—more commonly called 5G—wireless technology.
NTT Docomo, Japan's biggest mobile operator, announced it is working with six suppliers to conduct various “experimental trials” for 5G involving higher frequency bands than those used for existing mobile technologies.
As worldwide Mobile Broadband Traffic heads toward 200 Exabytes per year, operators deploy 4G LTE, LTE-A, plead for spectrum, and try to manage usage through policy and pricing. The physics of mobile broadband radio do not follow Moore’s Law of digital scaling, so leading-edge operators are ready to address the physical realities of small cells. Nevertheless, the question remains; why not deploy carrier grade Wi-Fi with the small cells?
ABI Research expects growth of 10% in mobile telecoms capital expenditure (CapEx) in Latin America, rising to US$6.1 billion. Upgrades and expansion of 3G WCDMA and 4G LTE coverage will result in radio access network-related spending capturing 40% of CapEx. Investment in small cell base stations is garnering momentum with 40% year-on-year growth in 2014 to US$484 million.
The SMA-connectorized, zero-degree WPD1040A is a Wilkinson-type power divider/combiner and features a low insertion loss of 0.50 dB (typical), high isolation of 18 dB (minimum) and excellent VSWR. It is suitable for LTE and land mobile radio (LMR), as well as RF bench test and mobile base station applications.
