Many times when a new technology emerges a rather heated debate arises. Not too long ago in the wireless broadband industry, the camps representing WiMAX and LTE did not miss the opportunity to advocate for their respective views and sharing potential benefits of their standpoints against the other. Over time, when arguments and feelings calm down a bit, a more sensible discussion can emerge and I think we’ve entered this now.
Making the “right” technology choices is always high on… Continue

India Wireless Market Update
- The Indian wireless market grew at 32% Y/Y in the period between December, 2008 to 2009.
- India continues to be the hottest market on the planet in terms of net-adds with (again) a world record-setting month in Jan 2010 with 19.9 million net adds. For the year 2009, India added 177 million subs vs. 106 million for China. Combined, one year of growth in these two market is equivalent to the size of the…

It seems that LTE is really ahead, this test was made in Norway more then 1 month (of course the location of the test is favorable too), but imagine that this test was a beta modem (Samsung USB dongle by the way), and the test is showing a very "nice" download speed of 17mbit/sec (should be more) but very good upload of almost 5mbit/sec, and the pings... incredible 25ms to 30ms. Frecuency they are using is 2.6ghz and 10mhz BW. Also look how big the USB dongle is… Continue

I was reading an article by Andrew Mitchell in which I found KDDI president and chairman, Tadashi Onodera in MWC, "explained to the audience that the economics of mobile broadband and flat rate pricing are "a big headache for operators."
The panel also reviewed the challenge operator's face in finding ways to pay for infrastructure. Flat rate pricing and the ever-increasing demand for data services to… Continue

Here are my top 10 predictions for the African wireless market in 2010.
1. Mobile entertainment services set to remain African carriers’ top priority to offset the continued decline of their total ARPU. In 2009, many African carriers experienced a decline of their total ARPU due to increase pricing war. I expect this trend to continue. Thus, African carriers will continue to focus on mobile data services to offset the decline… Continue

With the huge growth of mobile phones complementing with a revolution wireless network technologies there has been a huge change in the consumer's lifestyle and dependence on mobile phones. With the emergence of smart phones (mobile web) consumers are replacing not only their fixed lines but have started downsizing the number of personal computers in home. But they have far way to go as this demographic for this adoption is quite limited due to various factors. Fundamentally, consumers want… Continue

Mobile WiMAX has a short window in which to beat LTE-focussed operators to the most profitable markets for higher bandwidths. This blog uses the theory of disruptive innovation (even though neither WiMAX nor LTE is disruptive) to explain why. There's two parts, a summary at Summary: Why Mobile WiMAX can succeed in mature mobile markets

We strongly believe that today's wireless networks will not be able to cope with the coming bandwidth explosion, which will result from increased use of mobile data and video applications. Wireless networks won’t have the bandwidth to handle the same type of unlimited Internet usage that customers are accustomed to getting.
How are network operators going to ensure continued delivery of profitable revenue generating services when those services consume more aggregate bandwidth then… Continue

So it doesn't cause cancer (at least according to most reputable scientists), but cellular systems are suspected of being the root cause behind another strange phenomenon, the disappearance of the honey bee.
