This study for the GSMA demonstrates the gathering global momentum around adoption of 1.4/1.5 GHz band for IMT services in the run up to WRC-15. The 1.4/1.5 GHz band is of value to IMT services because it provides much needed capacity to support traffic growth and has propagation characteristics that support better rural and in-building[…]
Plum assessed the economic benefits from using the 1.4 GHz band for a supplemental downlink for the delivery of enhanced mobile multimedia and broadband services in the Middle East and North Africa region.
Industry forecasts suggest mobile data traffic could grow by up to 30 times current levels over the next 5 years. To meet this ever increasing demand operators will need more spectrum and to adopt new technologies to use spectrum more effectively. Governments around the world have announced ambitious targets for spectrum release to mobile broadband[…]
With sales of smartphones and tablets skyrocketing, broadband and multimedia traffic on mobile networks has grown exponentially. To meet this ever-increasing demand cost effectively, operators will need more spectrum and new technology, as a partial alternative to building yet more infrastructure. Governments around the world have announced ambitious targets for spectrum releases to support growth[…]
Plum assessed the economic benefits from using the 1.4 GHz band for a supplemental downlink for the delivery of enhanced mobile multimedia and broadband services in Europe.
McLaren were interested in identifying alternative spectrum options to their current telemetry solution for F1 racing which would support significantly more monitoring etc. of the cars. The study investigated and advised on potential availability of spectrum bands suitable for supporting mobile telemetry operations required at all the Grand Prix racing circuits. A wide range of[…]
