    Descriptive info: 6,085,172,004.. Connected Devices.. The spread of Mobile Broadband networks, the emergence of new mobile device categories and the expansion of mobile service propositions is establishing an Internet of things (IOT).. Within the next decade, billions of new devices will be connected to mobile networks, providing consumers and businesses with an array of applications, services and experiences.. This, we believe, will really usher in the Connected Future in which we are always connected, anywhere, and at any time.. Yankee Group predicted that a new segment of Connected Devices, including enterprise machine to machine (M2M) connections, tablets and eReaders, will grow to more than 800 million units by 2015.. Source: Yankee Group, 2011.. There is even greater potential beyond just these existing connected device segments.. Some industry players, such as Ericsson and Intel, predict that the connected device segment will reach between 20-50 billion connections by 2020.. Machina Research expects cellular technologies to play a critical role; wide area mobile connected devices will account for at least 12 billion of the overall 24 billion connected devices in 2020 (although many of these connections will utilize short-range technologies, such as WiFi and Zigbee).. Yankee Group defines Connected Devices as solutions that bundle together devices, network services, and applications to create, extract, act upon, or consume information.. Machina similarly defines Connected devices as all devices used for transmitting and receiving packet data telecommunications via any wide-area or local area network, such as PCs,,mobile handsets, tablets and numerous M2M applications.. The world of connected devices is broad and thus spans handsets, eReaders, connected digital signs, smart meters, and fleet tracking devices.. To help simplify things, Yankee Group sorts connected devices into three groups: Enterprise M2M devices, Consumer M2M devices, and Connected Computing Devices.. Connected Computing Devices are built around multimedia.. This category includes computing devices like tablets, laptops, and smartphones that help consumers browse the web, listen to music, and watch video..

  • Title: Edge, Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution, 3G Americas
    Descriptive info: 6,085,172,064.. EDGE: Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution.. EDGE Information.. EDGE Evolution.. Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) is a third-generation (3G) technology that enables high-speed packet-data services such as Internet access and streaming multimedia.. EDGE supports peak theoretical network data rates of 474 kbps, with average throughput of 70 to 130 kbps on both the downlink and the uplink.. The average rates are fast enough to support a wide range of data services, including streaming audio and video, fast Internet access and large file downloads.. EDGE also can support Push-to-Talk (PTT) services.. The International Telecommunication Union (.. ), which sets telecom standards for worldwide use, approved EDGE as a 3G standard in July 2000.. In July 2003, the world s first commercial EDGE network launched.. By 2010 there were more than 500 commercial EDGE networks operating in 200 countries worldwide.. Reasons for this worldwide expansion include:.. EDGE is a relatively straightforward, cost-effective network upgrade for most GSM operators.. EDGE deployments usually require only software and additional channel cards for the existing GSM-GPRS network infrastructure.. This design reduces the cost of deploying EDGE, so operators are better able to price their EDGE services competitively yet profitably.. EDGE does not require operators to acquire additional spectrum.. Instead, it can be deployed in today s most widely used bands.. The ability to deploy EDGE in its existing spectrum means that an operator can launch 3G services quickly, in more markets and at a lower cost than technologies that require new spectrum.. Most HSPA operators also offer EDGE, particularly in rural areas  ...   not yet available or is not supported by roaming agreements, he or she still can access many voice and data services.. As a result, users enjoy the convenience of being reachable with their EDGE device when traveling throughout the world, as well as the ability to access messaging and other mobile data services that they use in their home market.. Like GPRS, EDGE provides an always-on data connection, so users do not have to log on each time they want data access.. The packet architecture also means that users only pay for the data itself rather than for the airtime used to establish a connection and download data.. Although EDGE is a data technology, it also helps boost the number of voice calls that a network can handle simultaneously by sending data up to 150 percent more efficiently than GPRS.. With EDGE transmitting more data into the same amount of bandwidth, the voice-coding, or vocoder, technology in the GSM voice network can be upgraded to a version that increases voice capacity by 15 to 20 percent.. It is important to note that EDGE technology is continuously improving.. For example,.. Release 4 significantly reduced EDGE latency (network round trip time) from the typical 500 to 600 milliseconds (ms) to about 300 ms.. Operators also continue to make improvements in how EDGE functions, including network optimizations that boost capacity and reduce latency.. The impact for users is that EDGE networks today are more robust, with applications functioning more responsively.. Evolved EDGE in Release 7 and also in Release 8 introduces significant new features..

  • Title: Edge Evolution, Edge Evolved, II, GSM, 3G Americas
    Descriptive info: 6,085,172,114.. EDGE Evolution (EDGE II or Evolved EDGE).. EDGE Evolution Information.. EDGE Evolution, also called Evolved EDGE or EDGE II, is an upgraded version of.. technology that was ratified by the.. 3GPP.. in Release 7 (Rel-7).. It applies many of the techniques employed in HSPA+ to lower latency and increase the speed of EDGE.. A key part of the evolution of EDGE is the utilization of more than one radio frequency carrier.. This is designed to overcome the inherent limitation of the narrow channel bandwidth of GSM.. Compared to existing versions of EDGE, EDGE Evolution is expected to provide:.. A dramatic increase in data rates.. The actual amount depends on the version used, but peak download speeds and upload speeds are expected to increase 200 to 300 percent over EDGE.. A 50 percent increase in spectral efficiency and capacity.. Reduced latency for initial access and round-trip time, enabling better quality of service (QoS) for Push-to-Talk (PTT) and Voice over  ...   these objectives include:.. Downlink dual-carrier reception to increase the number of timeslots that can be received without a need to receive and transmit on the same carrier from four on one carrier to 10 on two carriers for a 150 percent increase in throughput.. The addition of Quadrature Phase Shift Keying, 16 QAM and 32 QAM as well as an increased symbol rate (1.. 2x) in the uplink and a new set of modulation/coding schemes that will increase maximum throughput per timeslot by 38 percent.. A reduction in overall latency by lowering the TTI to 10 milliseconds and by including the acknowledgement information in the data packet.. Downlink diversity reception of the same radio channel to increase the robustness in interference and to improve the receiver sensitivity.. Following the Rel-7 industry standardization, Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks are among those companies committed to launch EDGE evolution as a software upgrade of existing infrastructure.. RIM has also endorsed EDGE evolution..

  • Title: 4G Americas
    Descriptive info: 6,085,176,154.. EV-DO: Evolution-Data Optimized, or Evolution-Data Only.. Evolution-Data Optimized or Evolution-Data Only is a wireless broadband standard within the CDMA2000 technology family.. Code Division Multiple Access 2000 (CDMA2000), consisting principally of 1xRTT and One Carrier-Evolved, Data-Optimized (1xEV-DO) versions, is the second most widely deployed cellular technology in the world.. 1xRTT is the most widely deployed of the CDMA2000 family of technologies and is a CDMA operator s first step towards wireless data services.. Often compared to.. or.. in the 3GPP family of technologies, 1xRTT has a further evolution to EV-DO.. CDMA2000 represents a family of standards and includes:.. CDMA2000 1X.. CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Technologies.. CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Release 0 (Rel 0).. CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision A (Rev A).. CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision B (Rev B).. EV-DO uses many of the same techniques for optimizing spectral efficiency as.. HSPA.. , including higher order modulation, efficient scheduling, turbo-coding, adaptive modulation and coding, though the technology standards are not interoperable.. For these reasons, it achieves spectral efficiency that is virtually the same as UMTS-HSPA.. The 1x technologies operate in the 1.. 25 MHz radio channels, compared to the 5 MHz channels used by.. UMTS.. , resulting in lower theoretical peak rates, but similar average throughputs for high level of network loading.. Under low- to medium-load conditions, because of the lower peak achievable data rates, EV-DO or EV-DO Rev A achieves a lower typical performance level than HSPA.. CDMA operators have quoted 400 to 700 kbps typical throughput on the downlink for EV-DO Rel 0 and between 600 kbps and 1.. 4 Mbps for EV-DO Rev A.. Deployed network versions currently are based on either Rel 0 or Rev A radio-interface specifications.. EV-DO Rev A incorporates a more efficient uplink, which has spectral efficiency similar to that of.. HSUPA.. Operators started to make EV-DO Rev A commercially available in 2007.. One challenge for EV-DO operators is that they cannot dynamically allocate their entire spectral resources between voice and high-speed data functions.. The EV-DO channel is not available for circuit-switched voice,  ...   to EV-DO? In contrast, UMTS allows both circuit-switched and packet-switched traffic to occupy the same radio channel, where the amount of power each uses can be dynamically adjusted.. This makes it simple for users to migrate over time from circuit-switched voice to packet-switched voice.. Beyond Rev A, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project 2 (.. 3GPP2.. ) has defined EV-DO Rev B as allowing the combination of up to 15 1.. 25 MHz radio channels in 20 MHz significantly boosting peak theoretical rates to 73.. 5 Mbps.. An operator would more likely combine three radio channels in 5 MHz.. Such an approach by itself does not necessarily increase overall capacity, but it does offer users higher peak data rates.. The commercialization of EV-DO Rev B has been limited; as of July 2011, the CDMA Development Group identified 3 commercial networks worldwide.. Beyond Rev B, 3GPP2 developed Revision C standards, also known as Ultra Mobile Broadband (UMB).. UMB was standardized based on an OFDMA approach like.. and mobile WiMAX (802.. 16m).. However, this standard has largely been vacated.. EV-DO operators are choosing to deploy LTE because of the benefits offered by the 3GPP family of technologies.. Leading CDMA operators worldwide including Verizon, KDDI, KTF and SKT are among who converged with the 3GPP world, commercially launching LTE in 2011 over other radio access methods as they are nearing the end of their existing technology roadmap.. Though the migration from CDMA2000 to LTE is feasible, it will be more complex than migrating from UMTS-HSPA to LTE, especially in achieving interworking between LTE and legacy networks.. The CDMA2000 family of standards will continue to serve operators well into the next decade.. Many CDMA2000 operators are supplementing or evolving existing networks with OFDMA technologies such as LTE to deliver advanced mobile applications that require greater network capacity and data speeds.. It will be necessary to develop solutions to ensure that CDMA2000 devices, networks and roaming provide a seamless user experience across CDMA2000 to LTE wireless technology platforms..

  • Title: 4G Americas
    Descriptive info: 6,085,182,204.. Femtocells.. Femtocells Information.. Traffic Management and Offload Strategies for Operators,.. Qualcomm Jan 2011.. Femtocells are low-power wireless access points originally called Access Point Base Stations that operate in licensed spectrum to connect standard mobile devices to a mobile operator s network using the customer s DSL or cable broadband connection.. A femtocell is a scalable, multi-channel, two-way communications device that incorporates key elements of a mobile radio access network into a compact device about the size of the typical desktop Wi-Fi router and can be deployed in a home or office.. Demands for wireless data services are showing rapid growth due to evolved networks for high speed connectivity, wide-scale deployment, flat-rate pricing plans and Internet-friendly devices (smartphones).. As consumers rely heavily, and often-times exclusively, on mobile devices for their communications needs, wireless operators have begun turning to alternative means in which to improve cellular coverage in difficult to reach locations as well of off-load traffic from their wireless networks.. Many operators, including GSM-HSPA, and CDMA/EV-DO operators, are trialing or planning to deploy femtocells to better support residential and  ...   standard devices that are compliant with existing 2G and 3G air interface technologies.. This ensures seamless service and good interoperability with existing networks and avoids the need for specifically adapted handsets.. From a competitive perspective, femtocells can help mobile operators seize residential minutes from fixed providers, increase market share and respond to emerging VoIP and Wi-Fi offerings.. From a quality of service perspective, femtocells will improve the user experience in the home.. This is essential for reducing churn and providing new revenues.. Some capacity offload is anticipated from the use of femtocells but those benefits have not yet been quantified.. The femtocell solution typically employs power and backhaul via the user s existing resources (for example, DSL).. It also enables capacity equivalent to a full 3G network sector at very low transmit powers, dramatically increasing battery life of existing phones, without needing to introduce Wi-Fi enabled handsets.. Potential challenges to the deployment of femtocells are the reliance on the consumer to support of backhaul capabilities and the possibility of interference caused by the close placement of multiple femtocell devices..
