Broadband LTE Vs LTE-Advance Vs LTE – What is the key difference ?

LTE vs LTE-A Seminar in KoreaAt a time when their is Huge Demand for Affordable Broadband in India, the Corrupt Government along with Vested Private players is stalling the development of the 4G LTE Eco-System to favor selected couple of business houses who back the Thugs in the Government.

However, the World’s doesn’t stop innovating as we have seen Korea is now ready to serve her citizens with Broadband LTE / LTE-A after the recent spectrum Auctions.

We’ll disucss what is the Difference between Broadband LTE Vs LTE-Advance Vs LTE – Broadband LTE offers same theoretical speed as that (more…)

How Kyocera benefits from wireless LTE Revolution ?

According to Qualcomm, 4G LTE enabled mobile devices will need to support cellular radio frequency band fragmentation with 40 cellular radio bands worldwide. We think that the multi-band trend will continue or even accelerate going forward.

Kyocera has top market share in ceramic packages for SAW filters and duplexers which will proportionally increase when the number of frequency bands rises. We believe Kyocera is also a good wireless play.

How LTE is 11x Times better than 3G HSPA ?

3GPP results show that LTE can push through 3.5x as much information into a given amount of spectrum than 3.5G. These results give the performance in 2000MHz frequency band for both LTE and 3.5G. We now have to adjust these values to the Indian context: 3.5G on 2100Mhz band and LTE on 2300MHz.
3G vs LTE in India

These results were used to compare the economics of 3G vs LTE with respect to the cost of running unit data capacity.

How is 4G LTE Different from GSM ?

We’d like to draw parallels and compare and show to readers How 4G LTE is Different from GSM. The underlying multiplexing schemes in both 2G (GSM) and LTE appear similar: in both cases, multiple users are handled by ensuring that no two users send messages on the same frequency bucket at the same time (i.e., both technologies use a combination of frequency division and time division).

However, GSM is quite rigid in its resource allocation: a user is assigned one frequency bucket at the start of the session and he gets to send messages within that frequency bucket once in every eight time slots. Further, the allocation is frozen at the beginning of the session and remains fixed throughout the session. (more…)

China Telecom for FDD-LTE 4G Broadband

Contrary to market concerns that China Telecom will be required to invest in TD-LTE capex, management reiterated that the company intends to adopt FDD-LTE when it upgrades to 4G. Even if the MIIT required CT to provide TD-LTE services, the company is open to the option of leasing network capacity from CM rather than investing in the network rollout.

4G capex is expected to be manageable if CT gets FDD-LTE license compared to TD-LTE. Management believes 3G and 4G networks will
co-exist for a long time, and CT continued to have 800MHz spectrum advantage for 3G. The existing 800MHz spectrum should be sufficient for 2G and 3G capacity in coming years. The company plans to roll out 4G network only in downtown areas of cities.

China Telecom built 280,000 WiFi hotspots in 2012, reaching total hotspots of 900,000.

China Telecom does not plan to impose charges on OTT service providers, as the impact from applications such as Tencent’s Wechat is limited for CT given the company‚Äôs focus on data revenue rather than voice and SMS

China Telecom is a CDMA based Wireless operator and sees 4G to be at least 12 months away. For China Telecom, Mobile MOU declined 6% YoY to 296, whereas average 3G handset data usage increased 26% from 106MB/mth in 2011 to 134MB/mth in 2012. Smartphone models increased from 200 at the end of 2011 to 380 by the end of 2012, with smartphone sales growing 1.4x from 17 mn in 2011 to 41 mn in 2012, which accounted for >60% of total handset sales in 2012.
