  • 1. Mobile Broadband Strategy, T-Mobile Macedonia’s perspective Viktor Nastev NT Development & Strategy Director, TMMK 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 2. Mobile Broadband; WHY ??? New services, new applications, new clients, new networking technologies and new forms of communication, such as peer-to-peer, and media/content-to- person are key drivers for implementation of Mobile broadband. Data utilization is quickly increasing on smartphones and laptops. In addition, newer mobile devices such as Mobile Internet Devices and mobile consumer electronics devices are starting to appear, which further drive up data traffic on mobile wireless networks. Mobile broadband network technology has many aspects, e.g. users, politics, regulations, financing, and there are many parties involved, e.g. operators, network builders, IT developers, device makers. In such a complex case, it is pragmatic to assume that in the coming 5 to 10 years there will be a need for a number of mobile broadband services, and that it is necessary to start specifying and building the network technology that will enable and exploit these services. 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 3. Mobile DATA Services “T-Mobile MK perspective” – T–Mobile recognized the need of mobile data and started to build its mobile data core network. – Mobile Data services in T-Mobile network were implemented in 2003, as basic R99 GPRS implementation. At that time CS1 and CS2 coding schemes were introduced enabling data speeds of 35 – 50 kbps DL and 20 – 25 kbps UL. – Recognizing the need for greater data throughput and lower latency T- Mobile started implementing EDGE in its 2G network from 2005 and is constantly increasing its EDGE capable BTS’s in order to enable as wider EDGE coverage as possible. Implementation of EDGE in GSM network requires replacement of old with new HW in BTS and by using 8PSK modulation offers speeds of 100 – 200 kbps in DL and 50 – 100 kbps in UL. 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 4. Mobile DATA Services “T-Mobile MK perspective” – Recognizing the need for mobile broadband T- Mobile MK started searching for adequate solution. – In parallel with implementing of EDGE in the T-Mobile network, process for finding of suitable wireless broadband technology has started. Several trial tests with WiMAX technology were conducted during 2005 and several other broadband alternatives were analyzed in order to acquire and offer best broadband technology that can serve costumers needs. – As a normal evolution step from GSM/EDGE towards broadband services WCDMA as a leading technology has been chosen. 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 5. Mobile DATA Services “T-Mobile MK perspective” – Considering the acquisition of 3G (WCDMA) frequencies T-Mobile started building its 3G network in order to provide as wider 3G coverage as possible and as much capacity as possible, not just to cover the license requirements but to offer good quality and 3G signal to all of its costumers. – Implementation of 3G wireless technology is not solely related to new RADIO implementation, never the less it needs consolidation in operators core network and transmission network as well. – Considering the fact that in 2009 speaking of 3G network that has already reached its maturity and having in mind the volume of traffic and data speed demanded by mobile subscribers pushed T-Mobile to start immediately with implementation of (3.5G) network with HSPA support of 7,2 Mbps DL and 2.0 Mbps UL which will be followed in short time by upgrade to speeds of 14.4 Mbps DL and 5,8 Mbps UL. 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 6. UMTS Evolution in larger context – Implementation of new radio technology (WCDMA) in context of 3G network needs changes in the providers core network as well. First step in this change is moving from monolithic architecture towards split architecture in Circuit Switch core. Example of 3GPP release 4 architecture is presented on the picture bellow. 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 7. UMTS Evolution in larger context – Increasing the speed of always ‚hungry for bandwidth‛ applications played by the end user, must be followed by reducing the latency of data traffic, especially if service provider aims to introduce first class real time services. Providing appropriate packet architecture that can cope with this requirements is in constant scope of interest of 3GPP. – Changes in radio access technologies in order to provide space for grater bandwidth and lower latency are usually followed by changes in the core architecture, as well as in transport network. Considering the fact that IP is playing major role in communication industry especially having in mind that all network based services and application are IP based its introducing in UTMS networks from end to end (from terminal to terminal thru core network) is crucial for providing needed service quality . 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org

  • 10. What is LTE ??? – Long Term Evolution (LTE) describes standardization work by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) to define a new high-speed radio access method for mobile communications systems. – LTE is the next step on a clearly-charted roadmap to so-called ‘4G’ mobile systems that starts with today’s 2G and 3G networks. Building on the technical foundations of the 3GPP family of cellular systems that embraces GSM, GPRS and EDGE as well as WCDMA and now HSPA (High Speed Packet Access), LTE offers a smooth evolutionary path to higher speeds and lower latency. Choice of upgrade path 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 11. What is LTE ??? – In parallel with its advanced new radio interface, realizing the full potential of LTE requires an evolution from today’s hybrid packet/circuit switched networks to a simplified, all-IP (Internet Protocol) environment. From an operator’s point of view, the pay-off is reduced delivery costs for rich, blended applications combining voice, video and data services plus simplified interworking with other fixed and wireless networks. – By creating new value-added service possibilities, LTE promises long-term revenue stability and growth for around two hundred mobile operators that are already firmly committed to the UMTS/HSPA family of 3G systems. Just as importantly, it provides a powerful tool to attract customers who are provided with an increasing number of technology options for broadband connectivity on the move. – Based on the UMTS/HSPA family of standards, LTE will enhance the capabilities of current cellular network technologies to satisfy the needs of a highly demanding customer accustomed to fixed broadband services. As such, it unifies the voice-oriented environment of today’s mobile networks with the data-centric service possibilities of the fixed Internet. 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 12. LTE Key Features – From a technical point of view, a fundamental objective of the LTE project is to offer higher data speeds, for both down- and uplink transmission. Apart from this increase in raw data rates, LTE is characterized by reduced packet latency; the restriction that determines the responsiveness of gaming, VoIP, videoconferencing and other real-time services. – From an operator’s perspective, the flexible channel bandwidths and harmonized FDD/TDD modes of LTE provide a more efficient use of carriers’ existing and future spectrum resources. LTE also provides a more robust platform for operators to offer compelling value-added services in the mobile domain. – High spectral efficiency: LTE’s greater spectral efficiency allows operators to support increased numbers of customers within their existing and future spectrum allocations, with a reduced cost of delivery per bit. – Flexible radio planning: LTE can deliver optimum performance in a cell size of up to 5 km. It is still capable of delivering effective performance in cell sizes of up to 30 km radius, with more limited performance available in cell sizes up to 100 km radius. 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 13. LTE Key Features – Reduced latency: By reducing round-trip times to 10ms or even less (compared with 40–50ms for HSPA), LTE delivers a more responsive user experience. This permits interactive, real-time services such as high-quality audio/videoconferencing and multi-player gaming. – An all-IP environment: One of the most significant features of LTE is its transition to a ‘flat’, all-IP based core network with a simplified architecture and open interfaces. Indeed, much of 3GPP’s standardization work targets the conversion of existing core network architecture to an all-IP system. Within 3GPP, this initiative has been referred to as Systems Architecture Evolution (SAE) – Spectral Flexibility Means Wider Deployment Options 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 14. LTE Time Scale – A number of companies have already demonstrated various elements at public events. With 3GPP Release 8 now being consolidated, many industry players and observers anticipate the commercial launch of the first LTE networks and terminal devices in 2010. Several operators have already started the commercial LTE networks with few operators planning to start commercial 4G networks in the next months. – There is widespread industry consensus that operator’s revenues from LTE will gradually replace those generated by WCDMA and HSPA. By way of example, a study by ABI Research suggests that LTE will dominate the world's mobile infrastructure markets after 2011. 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
  • 15. Challenges facing the Mobile Broadband Strategy – Price of spectrum and licensees – Spectrum reframing (Possibility to offer different radio technology on the spectrum defined for certain technology) – Change in Transmission backhaul, introducing all-IP concept increasing the bandwidth – Site acquisitions – Procedures, Legal issues, Permits for conducting of civil work etc. – Need for Public – Private partnership with the Government in order to move forward and offer broadband to every customers in Macedonia 8th SEEITA – 7th SEE ICT Forum Meeting & 7th MASIT Open Days Conference 14-15 October 2010, Ohrid www.seeita.org
