  1. 1. Enabling communications – key technologies of today and tomorrow 10 th of June 2009 Dimitris Androutsopoulos Net Technologies
  2. 2. Enabling communications – key technologies of today and tomorrow <ul><li>An open agenda during the last period on what will be the emerging broad band technologies. </li></ul><ul><li>There are various answers. </li></ul><ul><li>Among these, three will be highlighted: </li></ul><ul><li>WiMAX </li></ul><ul><li>LTE </li></ul><ul><li>TETRA and TEDS. </li></ul> Net Technologies
  3. 3. Key Telecoms Trends <ul><li>Fixed line usage is reducing dramatically for “classical” services (e.g. voice) </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile use is increasing steadily even though penetration is already high </li></ul><ul><li>Broadband Internet deployment shows a rapid growth trend </li></ul> Fixed Mobile Broadband Internet Net Technologies
  4. 4. These Trends are pushing for… <ul><li>Fixed – Mobile Convergence (FMC) </li></ul><ul><li>The integration of mobile and fixed technologies to enable the seamless distribution of services over fixed mobile broadband networks </li></ul> Net Technologies
  5. 5. Key Challenges <ul><li>Broadband Wireless is the future! </li></ul><ul><li>Broadband and Mobility together </li></ul><ul><li>pose a unique challenge! </li></ul><ul><li>The Goal: </li></ul><ul><li>Fixed Mobile Convergence </li></ul> Net Technologies
