Track: Alternative 4G Delivery Strategies including; White Spaces, WiFi,
Dual Mode Devices, and Femtocells (4G3)
|Wednesday - 09/02/09, 8:30-9:45am|
The Generations do not flash cut from one version to another so 4G should not be considered an end point, but a process. Looking at the history of cellular technology helps us gain an understanding of the converging 4G model of the world. Based on cellular technology, and the progress to date, how long will it take for Long Term Evolution (LTE) to be delivered? Where do we stand in the process of delivering wireless broadband services?

Femtocell solutions blend the home network with the carrier’s service enabling seemless connectivity and offering an alternative mobile broadband solution. Femtocells improve indoor coverage while easing the capacity and backhaul costs in a carrier’s network. The question is what should we expect a femtocell to do? Is it simply another device behind the wireline broadband equipment? Does it represent an opportunity for tighter integration between the services. How do Femtocell devices fit into triple play offerings?

Self Organizing Networks
|Wednesday - 09/02/09, 11:15-11:40am|
As the network evolves, smarter ways to optimize become available. Self Organizing networks improve network efficiency, network reliability and performance. Best of all it has a direct impact on Opex. What is the impact of Capex and Opex with LTE? How SON and converged RAN reduce the costs of LTE? What are Self-Optimizing Networks and how will SON benefit the service provider?

The world of codecs keeps expanding, but the goal is ubiquity is still in the minds of every video advocate. Rather than expecting standards to force convergence, what can technology do to blend the video? What are the implications as we move toward a totally IP environment.

LTE When Worlds Collide
|Wednesday - 09/02/09, 1:35-2:00pm|
The promise of LTE is not just bandwidth its a cohesive IP backbone that enables the carrier to support a variety of services. What should we expect the model of services in the future. What new markets open up with mobility, machine to machine and functions like presence and location. Will the carrier be the benefactor or will applications emerge independent of them?
