This white paper introduces the 5G work plan in ITU and 3GPP, and also summarizes the 5G spectrum release progress of some regions/countries. The potential candidate frequency bands, including both lower and above 6GHz bands, are both introduced. In order to save the money for operators, GTI suggest that some infrastructures like base station hardware, which supports promising future technologies such as 3D-MIMO is recommended to reused for future 5G’s fast deployment by quick and easy software upgrade.
This white paper provides a business and technical overview of LTE roaming for LTE only Mobile Network Operators (MNO). The information contained is intended to support the GTI operator community as they launch LTE networks and look to expand their reach through roaming relationships or generate revenue by providing roaming capability onto their network.
This whitepaper identifies and explores the multi-mode multi-band device requirements of wireless network operators and service providers deploying the latest generation of mobile broadband technology, called LTE (Long-Term Evolution), using the time division duplex variant of the standard, known as TD-LTE.
This standard specifies the technical aspects of LTE/TD-SCDMA/WCDMA/CDMA/GSM(GPRS) multi-mode single-SIM device and LTE/TD-SCDMA/WCDMA/CDMA/GSM(GPRS) multi-mode dual-SIM device, to ensure that the LTE/TD-SCDMA/WCDMA/CDMA/GSM(GPRS) multi-mode device can meet the needs of network operation and business development.
To provide information and suggestions for facilitating the efficient utilization and fast deployment of TD-LTE globally, this white paper summarizes the advantage of TDD spectrum, TDD deployment and product availability. Further, the spectrum related issues in TD-LTE application and network deployment are discussed and the corresponding solutions for the commercial deployment are presented. To facilitate fast development of TD-LTE global deployment, this white paper also proposes some recommendations and suggestions for operators/standardization organizations/regulators.
This white paper provides a technical overview of carrier aggregation, including the following aspects:
1. Analyse the frequency bands allocation of different operators and the CA requirements of the operators based on the spectrum assignment.
2. Introduce the technical principle, advantages and application scenario of CA
3. Share the current status of standardization and industry.
4. Release the requirements of the operators and summarize the earliest roadmap expecting by the operators.
