The Mobile Broadband Revolution

  1. 1. Deutsche Telekom – T-Mobile. The Mobile Broadband Technology Revolution . Deutsch-Chinesisches Forum für wirtschaftliche und technologische Zusammenarbeit. Berlin, 29 January 2009.
  2. 2. Deutsche Telekom Vision. Technology enables Connected Life and Work vision …. no “strings” attached. At home. On the move. At work.
  3. 3. T-Mobile. Key indicators show size and success of technology. T-Mobile Group operates in excess of 160 thousand radio access nodes, and serving more than 120 } mn customers generating more than 500 } bn mobile minutes. Mobile data demand taking-off with ca. 2 } TByte /month, more than 10Gbps BH throughput and a projected 60% CAGR over the next 5 years. Across key radio access technologies such as GSM , UMTS , WiFi and WiMax A technology organization of employees ca. 6,000 in Europe alone, covering network and IT design & development , plan , build and operations .
