TDD interference needs close examination (December 2005) - Features

As 3G systems and services slowly grows in popularity across Europe, the prospect that time division duplex (TDD) W-CDMA technology could enjoy widespread deployment moves closer to reality.

Alcatel, KT to boost WiMAX cooperation

Alcatel and KT are working together to accelerate the adoption of WiMAX technology. Both companies have decided to establish a new centre in Seoul, South Korea, which will serve as a venue for conducting interoperability tests of WiBro/mobile WiMAX (802.16e) infrastructure with WiMAX-enabled devices and to showcase WiMAX technology. Both companies will also develop new mobile broadband applications that leverage the potential of mobile WiMAX for the worldwide market. Alcatel will provide the radio access and core network elements for the WiBro/mobile WiMAX reality centre, and will integrate this equipment with a set of application platforms to be used to test applications with local third party developers. The centre will be linked to the KT R&D Center to facilitate testing of the convergence of fixed and mobile broadband applications and to evaluate the experience of end-users. KT offers wireline and wireless telephony, high-speed internet data, and satellite communications services. Alcatel provides communications solutions.

Is the WiMAX-4G train leaving without Intel?

"Qualcomm has outmanoevred the 802.16 camp and the UMTS group fairly substantially by buying Flarion, "The 802.20 group will standardize on something similar to Flash-OFDM. Flarion's OFDM works now, has been through all the trials."

"Why would any mobile career deploy 802.16? All the early simulations suggest it's not going to be a big gain in capacity or spectro-efficiency."

Is the WiMAX-4G train leaving without Intel?

Each of the three vendor lobbies are now exploiting smart antennas, all of them to some extent are dabbling in unlicensed spectrum - with disappointing results so far, we note. And most overlooked of all: all paths lead to OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency-division Multiplexing).

Strix Talks WiMax Mesh Future

October 3, 2005

Strix Systems of Calabasas, Calif., is one of the many companies making a name for itself in wireless mesh infrastructure equipment. It's a market that In-Stat says is going from $33.5 million last year to $974.3 million by 2009. In fact, the research firm calls it a "potentially disruptive technology" — they mean that in a good way. But can it get there using Wi-Fi alone? Maybe not. This is probably why Strix is already making noise about its future support for the high-speed, long-distance connections that will come with 802.16, also known as WiMax.

Global 3G subscriptions hit 50 million, says UMTS Forum

UMTS/WCDMA accounts for two thirds of worldwide 3G total

Mobile industry association The UMTS Forum affirms that worldwide subscriptions to 3G mobile networks have now passed the 50 million mark, with UMTS/WCDMA subscribers outnumbering those using other 3G technologies by a factor of two. The UMTS Forum's estimation is based on a combination of published industry statistics and internal data held by its member organisations.

Thanks to a sustained period of growth, UMTS/WCDMA customers now stand at approximately 33 million worldwide - an increase of more than 15% in the total base since the end of June this year. 3G/UMTS subscriber growth remains significantly higher than that of 2G/GSM networks in their first few years of operation.

Correspondingly, subscriptions to the other fully commercialised 3G technology, CDMA 1x EV-DO, now exceed 17 million worldwide - mainly in South Korea and Japan. This figure represents one third of the global aggregate of 50 million customers spanning both 3G technologies.

Japan remains the world leader in WCDMA network subscriptions. As of end August this year, there were more than 16.5 million Japanese WCDMA customers, representing just over 50% of the global 3G/UMTS user base.

Italy ranks second to Japan in terms of subscriber numbers, with just over 6.75 million customers on its four 3G/UMTS networks. The UK, meanwhile, currently ranks as the world's third largest 3G/UMTS market with just over 4 million customers.
