Transcript

  • 1. Consequences of band fragmentation for LTE devices • Vodafone experiences and plans for LTE devices • Providing superior LTE devices while accommodating the battery and multi-band requirements of LTE networks • FDD vs. TD-LTE – accommodating both variants in mobile devices • Vodafone band requirements for devices Oliver Wierichs, Vodafone - Group Terminals May, 24th, 20121 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 2. 4G / LTE launch experience2 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 3. 3 C1 - Public | 24 May 2012
  • 4. Vodafone has launched 4G / LTE in Germany and Portugal Dec 2010 March 2012 • Vodafone Germany : December 2010 @ 800 MHz • Vodafone Portugal : March 2012 @ 2600 MHz4 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 5. Vodafone 4G Products – in market devices 2H 2010 1H 2011 2H 2011 Q1 2012 Q2 2012 December January - June July- December January - March April - June B1000 LTE router data onlyBroadband LTE only Fixed 800 MHz Turbo-Box data + voice LTE only B2000 LTE router 800 MHz Data only (bundle with Easybox LTE 800/900/1800/2100/2600 Samsung GT-B3740 router) data only HSPA+ quad LTE only 800 MHz (bundle with R101 sharing dock) K5005 Samsung P5 LTEBroadband Data only Tablet (8.9‘‘) Mobile LTE 800/2600 LTE 800/1800/2600 HSPA+ 2100 HSPA+ 900, 2100 Smartphones HTC Velocity Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE LTE 800/2600 LTE 800/1800/2600 HSPA+ 900/2100 HSPA+ 900/2100 CS fallback for voice CS fallback for voice5 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 6. Experience from initial device launchesPositive Surprises : Learnings:• Impressive user experience • Complete new system, significant impact• High data rates on e2e chain (SIM, device, radio,• Low latency transport, core, IT systems, process)• Stable and reliable • Inter system mobility complex, requires• Surprisingly few interworking issues integrated network with upgrade of all legacy networks • Significant testing effort, esp. Mobility • CS-FB works, call setup time acceptable, but limitationsOpen Issues:• Device Cost• Battery Life• Fragmented voice solutions• Spectrum Fragmentation6 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 7. Spectrum fragmentation7 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 8. Selection of LTE products - worldwide 9 markets, 7 bands, several products are single band LTE Vodafone 800 T-Mobile Verizon Wireless 2600 800 700 (1800) 1800 Scandinavia 800, 2600 Poland Telstra 1800 1800 NTT DoCoMo 2100 Metro PCS 1700/1900 ATT 7008 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 9. Informa Telecoms LTE survey shown on last year in Amsterdam9 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 10. Why are there so many LTE frequency bands ? • Value of spectrum • Regulation, different bands in different regions • Legacy – e.g. military use, analogue TV10 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 11. What will customers expect from LTE devices ? Let‘s take an example of a 3G product today, with world-wide compatibility: iPhone 4s supports: • 4x HSPA • 2x CDMA • 4x EDGE To achieve similar global compatibility and roaming, 6-8 LTE bands required in addition11 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 12. TDD12 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 13. Vodafone foresees a convergent FDD/TDD scenario in anincreasing number of our markets LTE Spectrum LTE live FDD & TDD FDD only Pending auction LTE live • We have acquired 2600 MHz TDD spectrum in Germany, Spain and Portugal • LTE service using FDD in Germany since December 2010, Portugal since March 201213 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 14. How is the ecosystem evolving to support FDD/TDDconvergence in the devices? Chipsets % Band support existing LTE terminals • All major chipsets manufacturers support both FDD and TDD in hardware today • Full commercial availability of TDD chipsets typically lagging FDD by ~1year Devices • Commercial TDD devices available • Some devices declare FDD & TDD capability Features • Handover between FDD and TDD not yet available • Co-existence FDD/TDD on same device yet to be proven commercially Source: GSA website, January 2012 • FDD/TDD Carrier aggregation not currently on roadmaps •Today converged FDD/TDD terminal support is limited. •We need to continue to drive converged FDD/TDD terminal availability14 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 15. Frequency band requirements15 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
  • 16. Vodafone LTE frequency band requirements 2010 Band 20 (800 MHz): Deployed in Germany 800 1800 Band 7 (2600 MHz): Deployment in Portugal and Germany 2600 2011 FDD Italy, Spain, SFR in France acquire LTE spectrum Band 3 (1800 MHz) : Spectrum available in many markets, required 2012 re-farming from 2G in 2012 today 2013 Band 13 (700 MHz): Roaming to US, Verizon Wireless 2014 Band xx (700 MHz): FDD for Asia-Pacific region Band 38, (2600 MHz): TDD for Europe including FDD–TDD convergence: 2015 FDD and TDD on the same device, including handover and co-existence Band 8 ? Uncertain *) Band 1, EU, roaming Japan ? TDD: Band 40/41 roaming to China, LTE in India ? 24 May 2012 *) Bands, which might or will be required,16 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012 Note: All Timelines are indicative, subject of change but timeframe unclear
  • 17. Conclusion • LTE will require Multiband devices, to facilitate economies of scale and global roaming • HSPA+ and EDGE support on devices required for coverage • Solutions need to be cost effective and small • No Compromise on RF performance • Current focus is FDD, but FDD+TDD support will be required, including co-existence and interworking Vendors, which enable LTE Multiband & Multimode devices will be most successful17 C1 – Public | 24 May 2012
