Lte Femtocells: Stepping stone for killer applications Presentation Transcript

  • 1. LTE Femtocells: Stepping Stone for Killer Applications Zahid Ghadialy eXplanoTech Ltd. Date: 19/11/2008
  • 2. Where are Femtocells now? All major operators are having some kind of Femtocells trials First IMS based 3G Femtocell to be launced in Japan in Jan. 09 ‘Heavy Reading’ report suggests that full fledged commercial launches will happen end of 2010 or beginning 2011. Informa report (Aug. 08) suggests that there will be 40 million Femtocells by end of 2013 Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 2
  • 3. Where is LTE now? T-Mobile, Nortel and LG demonstrated data transfer from a vehicle in Bonn, Germany using LTE – Sep 08. ABI Research predicts that there will be 32 million subscribers will be using LTE by 2013. NTT DoCoMo plans to roll out LTE commercially by end 2009. In Americas, operators who were supporting CDMA2000 are now supporting LTE as evolution path. Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 3
  • 4. Comparing LTE with pre-LTE LTE Pre-LTE Data Rates: Data Rates: DL – 300Mbps max. DL – 42Mbps max. UL – 75Mbps max. UL – 11Mbps max. Flexible Spectrum from Fixed 5MHz Spectrum 1.25MHz to 20MHz Spectrum efficiency: 2x-4x Spectrum efficiency: ½x – ¼x times pre-LTE technology times LTE Latency: 5-10ms Latency: 50ms Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 4
  • 5. What about LTE Femtocells? Operators are showing interest in initially rolling out LTE as Femtocells to iron out the problems with the evolving technology Clearwire is rolling out its WiMAX offering initially the same way; in shape of Femtocells. Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 5
  • 6. Useful Statistics Source: www.dilbert.com More than 50% of voice calls originate indoors – Airvana More than 70%of data traffic originate indoors - PicoChip According to a recent European Commission survey of 27,000 homes across the European Union, 24% currently use mobile phones-only at home – a number that's expected to grow. – Malcolm Latham, Motorola Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 6
  • 7. Top Mobile Applications! SMS is still the Killer App. Source: Mark Selby, Nokia in Forum Oxford Conference, April 2008 Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 7
  • 8. Designing Killer Applications Recipe to design killer applications: Something new everyday – E.g., News Available instantly whenever needed – E.g., Youtube or similar VOD services Challenging or Entertaining – E.g., Games, Music, etc. Something that can reduce cost – E.g., VoIP services like Skype Keeping in touch – E.g., Facebook, MSN messenger, etc. Something to help in everyday life – E.g.,GPS, Maps, etc. Purchase whatever and whenever you like – E.g., E-bay or Amazon Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 8
  • 9. Designing our Killer Applications Now lets design our KILLER APPLICATIONS Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 9
  • 10. Killer Application 1 - Wireless HDD Motivation Personal details of 600,000 recruits lost 22 January 2008 - Defence Secretary Des Browne has launched an official inquiry into military security after the loss of a Royal Navy laptop containing the personal details of 600,000 people. Browne also revealed that two RAF loses data on 50,000 personnel other laptops had been stolen, one in Manchester in October 2006 and one in Edinburgh in December 2000 … September 29, 2008 -- The Royal Air Force has suffered a data loss that has reportedly put tens of thousands of personal records at risk.The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said that it is investigating the breach, which is believed to T-Mobile Germany admits massive stem from the loss of three portable hard drives from an customer data loss RAF base at Innsworth in Gloucestershire. 6 October 2008: It's taken a very long time to come out, but T-Mobile has owned up to losing details for 17 million of its customers. The German mobile phone company, could hit 1.7 MoD data loss total which is a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom,million is now red- faced after details of14/10/08: loss were published by the the data A recent data breach at the Ministry of Defence German mag Der Spiegel. could prove to be much worse than originally feared. (MoD) The portable hard drive reported missing by subcontractor EDS could contain data on as many as 1.7 million prospective recruits.The estimate is far higher than those originally given at a modest 100,000 records.

  • 11. Killer Application 1 - Wireless HDD ‘Current generation’ storage Nearly all of us use memory stick. Over 100 million in use at present. Data is generally stored unencrypted. Its not too difficult to break encryption if encrypted. People tend to store sensitive information on these memory sticks. People have even admitted on storing back account details and PIN’s. So what if this gets Mostly used inside in a lost? house or an office. Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 11
  • 12. Killer Application 1 - Wireless HDD ‘Next generation’ storage To make this storage secure, we can use a wireless form of memory stick. AS Database The phone when connected to the laptop gives same appearance as normal memory stick. All data is stored in secure Core Network database located in operator premises: Data flow on Air interface is protected by Access security Additional security can be applied based on IMSI. Offline option is available via website to manage and check the stored data. Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 12
  • 13. Killer Application 1 - Wireless HDD Analysis: How and Why Why we need LTE Femtocells for this: These memory devices are nearly always used indoors It is necessary to have good Radio coverage to get high data rates LTE data rates of 300Mbps is not far off from USB 2.0 data rates of 480Mbps Not suitable for Macrocells for high amount of storage as the data transfer would generally exceed the quota. Data speeds of 300Mbps means no other user can generally use the cell hence Macrocells are again ruled out for this app. Large amount of data transfer would require free or capped charges which is possible only with Femtocells ‘Home Zone’ rates. Reason for success: Available instantly and on demand Fast Help in everyday life Basic Data Security Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 13
  • 14. Killer Application 2 – Home Security System Motivation Our home is full of complicated systems that can go wrong and cause considerable dent in the pocket. Some of the things that can go wrong are: Burglary and Break-in Unwanted visitors and pests Water pipe burst Water tank leakage Electrical appliance like Iron left on by mistake Water in the house because of flooding, etc. People install expensive security systems but that is for the exterior and to avoid burglars breaking in. What about the problems that can go wrong inside the house? Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 14
  • 15. Killer Application 2 – Home Security System Extensive Security Mobile based indoor and outdoor cameras are now easily available: Trade off between quality and amount of time required to transfer pictures. Limitations on the amount of pictures that can be transferred because of data usage These cameras can be coupled with motion sensors if required Can be used to monitor the people around the house as well as people coming in and going out of the house. In case of an event, the owner can be alerted immediately. If no response received within a certain time then if required emergency services can be alerted. Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 15
  • 16. Killer Application 2 – Home Security System Analysis: How and Why Why we need LTE Femtocells for this: Good radio coverage required for indoor location even in corners Fast response time required in case of events LTE Femtocells would ensure high quality images instantly Continuous video recordings and high quality pictures transfer regularly require cheap access to air interface. Transferring data using Femtocells would mean lower or negligible data costs Multiple devices can be in operation at any time thereby requiring higher data capacity Reason for success: Available instantly and on demand Help in everyday life Something that can reduce cost Keeping in touch Basic Home Security Presented by Zahid Ghadialy © eXplanoTech Ltd. 16
  • 17. Conclusion LTE Femtocells: would allow applications to transfer enormous amount of data and at the same time the cost of data transfer would be negligible via ‘Home Zone’ rates. would allow high speed of data transfer (up to 300Mbps) as in case of connected lines This will definitely give birth to groundbreaking and challenging ‘Killer Applications’ Any Questions?
