Charting the course for mobile broadband - heading towards high-performance all-IP with LTE/SAE
Udgivet i 2008
Nokia Siemens Networks expects five billion people to be connected to the web and a 100-fold traffic increase in the networks by 2015. Wireless access to the Internet will be in step with wireline access. Access via mobile phone supporting enhanced data applications will complement notebook based usage. Wireless networks will be used to extend broadband penetration beyond the reach of wireline networks. More and more user communities will enjoy multimedia services, driving total bandwidth demand. This affords mobile network operators a business opportunity they can capitalize on by improving their networks' performance and efficiency. With a view to taking the next step up the evolutionary ladder beyond HSPA, 3GPP Rel8 has standardized a technology called Long Term Evolution/System Architecture Evolution (LTE/SAE).
