Tutorial – 3G, IMS, and the Carrier Network Evolution Economics

Carriers in the developed countries face a number of challenges today that include margin expansion, adding shareholder value while coping with a shrinking addressable market, and ongoing complaints about the quality of subscriber experience.  By understanding the margin-per-application for the 3G applications such as video, audio, SMS, and others, and while understanding the cost differences on a per-minute-of-use basis for voice in a legacy domain versus that of a 3G/IMS system, carriers can begin to set forth strategies that will address all challenges while continuing to grow their business.

Tutorial – cdma2000 Technology Family: 1xRTT, EVDO, UMB, and EVDV

The cdma2000 1xRTT technology, also called 1xRTT, 1x, cdma20001x, or simply cdma2000, was recognized by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) as an IMT-2000 standard in November 1999 and given the numeric designation of IS-2000. It was the first IMT-2000 technology deployed worldwide, in October 2000. 1xEV-DO, also called EV-DO, EVDO, or just EV, was initially developed by Qualcomm in 1999 to meet the IMT-2000 requirements for a greater-than-2-Mbit/s downlink for stationary communications.

Paul’s Puzzler: Mission Impossible!

In the last issue of our newsletter we posed the question of a receiver being able to obtain the correct packet after one or more transmissions without any of the transmissions/retransmissions being received correctly. While it may sound like ‘Mission Impossible’, it can be done and here is how. … This concept has been implemented for the first time in mobile communications in EDGE. It’s employed in UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA and cdma2000/EVDO and, needless to say, also in WI-FI and WiMAX.
