Cellular 4G/LTE Channel
The leading mobile services provider in Mainland China, NSN, is now deploying 4G/LTE technology, which uses LISCA cable assemblies from Huber + Suhner for the mobile communications antennas.
The U.S. Navy has awarded Harris Corporation an eight-year contract valued at up to $133 million to provide shipboard terminals that give crews access to high-bandwidth voice and data communications.
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?
CSIRO and NICTA – have joined forces with the ng Connect Program, founded by Alcatel-Lucent, to create new ultra-broadband end user experiences
To meet the needs of a data-hungry new generation of users in densely populated areas, dtac TriNet Co., Ltd, has assigned long-time partner Ericsson to deploy a 4G/LTE network.
Nokia Solutions and Networks and the NYU WIRELESS Research Center at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering are jointly organizing the first Brooklyn 5G Summit, held April 23-25 in Brooklyn, New York. The invitation-only event will bring together wireless and mobile industry research and development leaders in academia, business and government to explore the future of 5G wireless technology, with special focus on antennas, propagation and channel modeling.
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.
According to ABI Research, Asia-Pacific regional growth in basestations will outpace all other regions this year as it continues to account for the majority of worldwide basestation deployments. The Asia-Pacific region now becomes the largest market for LTE, followed by North America and Western Europe, with the Asia-Pacific regional installed base growing to 8X in 2014.
Smile Communications has launched a 4G/LTE network on the 800 MHz spectrum in Ibadan and Lagos, both in Nigeria with Ericsson the primary vendor for the LTE radio network.
Anite has announced its participation in a project initiated by Intel to develop ‘virtualised’ testing environments in order to accelerate 4G and 5G technology development and testing.
