Intelligence Types: White Papers and Reports

LTE is Now

This white paper, presented by Huawei, assesses the various advantages that LTE technology can bring to mobile operators.

Greater spectral efficiency, reduced cost of ownership and improved capacity are among the key benefits discussed in the paper. Operators deploying the technology in the first wave stand to reap the rewards of leadership.

Huawei’s Rich Communication Suite

Having built reliable, high-bandwidth networks, mobile operators are now focusing on business models that will generate revenues from new IP-centric, converged communications services. Mobile operators have encouraged first penetration, and then churn, by offering basic voice, messaging and data services at extremely competitive prices. So telecom operators must now think about their retention and customer relation strategies through new services, a new market approach and new business models that help differentiate them from their competitors, and increase customer value and subscription lifetime.

Professional Managed Services: Estate Management

Sponsored by Cluttons

At a time when mobile operators are looking to take transformative measures to current business models so as to differentiate from their peers in an increasingly competitive marketplace, provide the most relevant services to end-users and cut operating expenditure costs, the need for operators to work as closely as possible with the supplier community becomes paramount. It should therefore be no surprise that the managed service model continues to grow and broaden. Initially network- and services-driven, mobile operators now view partnering with providers of professional services as the next logical step to the effective management of their operations.

MessagePhone: adding value to users & operators in emerging markets

SPONSORED BY Synchronica plc

This white paper examines the MessagePhone and provides an analysis of how the device will be
positioned to meet the particular needs of emerging markets. The device is being launched at a
time when mobile network operators face new levels of competitive intensity and continue to
battle against rising churn rates. Throughout this paper we refer to Africa and Latin America as
examples of the MessagePhone’s target markets, although the device would also be appropriate
for parts of the Asia Pacific and Eastern Europe regions.

Multi Vendor Network Parameter Management

Published by Aexio

Radio Network quality in a cellular network can be used as a barometer to gauge the overall quality of a network. This is in a large part due to the fact that the mobile network’s quality is dominated by a substantial number of environmental factors. By tracking a few key performance indicators (KPIs) in the radio network, call quality and subscribers’ perception of the quality of the network can be monitored. These KPI include, for example, blocked calls, dropped calls, voice quality and throughput.

VDSL2–A Feasible Solution for “Last Mile”

Published by ZTE

ADSL plus is currently being deployed worldwide as the new mainstream broadband technology for residential and business customers. But at the same time, the industry is gearing up for the next step of the DSL evolution: VDSL . This second version of the very high-speed digital subscriber line (VDSL) standard from ITU-T promises to deliver 100Mbps symmetrical traffic on short copper loops.

UK mobile broadband measurements

Sponsored by Bytemobile

An extensive measurement campaign was carried out between June and August 2009 to assess the effect of mobile broadband optimisation on Internet access through notebook/netbook computers. Measurements were performed in and around London on all UK mobile networks offering mobile broadband products and conducted so that the results were comparable, regardless of the surrounding environment and traffic in the measured cell.

10G EPON – Unleashing the Bandwith Potential

Published by ZTE

For the first time in history, we can now aim to live in “One World”, because the 1st century has ushered in a new era in man’s ongoing quest for a better life and a better world. Telco industry is passing through a phase of multiservice revolution, with a shift from legacy to next generation networks and the introduction of new and advanced services (e.g. DTV, HDTV, IPTV, VoIP, WiMAX, Mobile TV, etc.). More and more service providers are progressing to triple-play and even quad-play packages in order to provide a one-stop shopping service to customers. IP traffic is growing exponentially and networks evolve to include bandwidth hungry IP-based applications on voice, video and data. A discussion about broadband medium and speed is on everyone’s tongue. But still it is under discussion that “how fast is fast enough”. In fact, broadband is not just a speed it is defined as a potential medium that offers a wide variety of applications to users at their premises. This white paper provides a detailed tutorial overview of the IEEE 802.3av 10Gbit/s Ethernet PON (10G EPON) market trends that are driving the requirement of future last mile access networks, standardization advancements, technology infrastructure.

LTE performance for initial deployments

Published by Nokia Siemens Networks

LTE (Long Term Evolution) and SAE (System Architecture Evolution) are on the way. The question is now about when, where and how LTE/SAE will arrive. Regardless of what motivates each operator to make the transition, it is essential to demonstrate the stability and performance of the new systems at an early stage in order to promote the smooth and cost-efficient introduction and deployment of LTE/SAE technology. This is true both within companies and as part of wider, coordinated efforts towards interoperability. Since the 3GPP specifications are now reasonably well defined and stable, the time is right to evaluate performance and to publish the most interesting results.

LTE will meet the promise of global mobile broadband

Overview of SDR market – Trends & Potential

Published by ZTE

Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the evolution of base station technology. Although too expensive
to be considered in the past, underlying technology advances are starting to turn the new
concept from expensive to efficient and even able to reduce costs. Several infrastructure vendors
have now implemented SDR in their product portfolio and mobile operators are now realising that
the new technology can provide significant cost savings, lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
for a newly deployed network and provide compatibility with future standards.
