    • 20. EDGE Evolution – drivers and goals
      • EDGE Evolution - potential benefits:
        • 2 – 3 times increase in EDGE bit rates
        • 2 – 3 times spectral efficiency gain (for voice & data capacity)
        • Halve the latency (roundtrip time)
      • All achieved with low impact on the GSM/EDGE network
      Operators tell us service continuity is very important: WCDMA evolution to HSDPA a key driver for EDGE Evolution Reducing the performance gap is the priority
    • 21. Conclusions
      • GSM is a huge success in China and throughout the world
      • Open standards is the key enabler, stimulating market take up, massive economies of scale, competition, innovation, and roaming
      • 3GPP roadmap continues the open standards philosophy with EDGE, WCDMA, HSDPA, HSUPA and beyond (LTE)
      • GSM/EDGE is mature, global, and mainstream
      • WCDMA operators who received UMTS licenses in the first wave during 1999-2002 have reached the commercial phase
      • WCDMA is mainstream and the leading 3G mobile system globally
      • Rapidly increasing variety, competitiveness and availability of user devices – phones, PC data cards, are key factors in driving market acceptance
      • The importance of combined WCDMA-EDGE deployments for service continuity (the best user experience) is understood and evident globally
      • 3G/WCDMA operators are moving to HSDPA now – the path to mobile broadband
