Mobile Broadband Workshop

  1. 1. Alan Quayle Business and Service Development: Workshop Outline Mobile Broadband Workshop BackgroundMobile broadband has finally grown up, its impacting internet statistics. Over 71 millionEuropeans use their mobile phones to access the internet in a typical week in Q1 2010.Europeans spend almost an hour a day and 6.4 hours per week going online via theirmobile, according to a study by the European Interactive Advertising Association (EIAA).According to Akamai mobile usage in many geographies around the world may begrowing to the point where it is skewing average speed calculations, resulting insignificant declines in broadband metrics, or unusually large gains in narrowbandmetrics. For example, South Korea, for example, lost 24 percent in its average accessspeed in the fourth quarter of 2009, returning it to levels seen in the first and secondquarters of 2009.The global Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) family of standards - whichincludes GSM, EDGE, WCDMA, HSPA and LTE – is the most widespread way to delivermobile broadband. 3GPP standards are serving about 90 percent of the world’s mobilesubscribers. So where does this leave operators using CDMA2000, EVDO, WiMAX andother wireless access technologies? This course will not only review mobile broadbandtechnologies but also evaluate the migration routes operators are taking.Verizon made a globally significant decision for MBB in 2007 when it gave up on fundingthe evolution of CDMA technology, and instead decided to move to LTE. Its justificationwas simple, with CDMA it was paying a $10-$15 premium for handsets compared toGSM. While with LTE it can leverage a global volume in devices and its network. Thecourse will explore how Verizon is managing the transition from CDMA to LTE.Were seeing a great diversity in mobile broadband success. AT&T in the US hasstruggled with supporting the iPhone, why and where in their network is the issue?While in many EU countries operators find iPhone accounts for less than 10% of theMBB traffic, the rest is from from laptops/netbooks.Mobile broadband is now a mass market service in many developed markets. Data-onlysubscriptions involve either a USB dongle (>90%) or embedded broadband (<10%), datacards are no longer relevant in most markets. Customers prefer the USB dongle as itcan be shared between devices and customers.The course will explore how operators have dimensioned their networks and respondedto the rapid consumer adoption, as well as the impact of 4G and embedded devicesemerging to further drive MBB usage.  2011 Alan Quayle Business and Service Development
  2. 2. Alan Quayle Business and Service Development: Workshop OutlineIs mobile broadband no more than a dumb pipe? Is it just another fixed-mobilesubstitution business case. Will MBBs success commoditize broadband. Will IPTV andother content services be monetizable with mobile broadband? The course will alsoexamine the future of MBB. Workshop Objectives Understand the evolution of mobile networks from 1G through to LTE Understand the available mobile broadband standards Understand the real-word economics facing mobile broadband and the challenges some operators are facing Detailed technical review of HSPA, HSPA+ and LTE Understand mobile backhaul economics, issues and technical options Review the emerging devices and services; and their impact on mobile broadband Present a view on the future of mobile broadband networks Workshop Delivery Options Full 3 day course (600+ slides) Fast-track 2 day course through most of the program – group discussion is limited Partial program for anything less than 2 days  2011 Alan Quayle Business and Service Development
