1 4G Mobile Technology – Towards Open Architecture and Open Spectrum Prof. Willie W. Lu, Ph.DFormer Stanford Professor & Advisor of FCC-TACChairman & Executive Director, USCWCIndependent Advisor & Examiner, EU/US/China/CA/etc.
2 Commercial Mobile Communications Laws No single Radio Transmission Technology (RTT or Wireless Standard) can do both broadband high-speed and seamless mobilityLow cost, high performance, easy to use, efficient spectrum utilization are key issues for market acceptanceThe mobile device is evolving from a traditional transmissions-specific radio system to the future interface-base system. This future mobile terminal will be relying on Open Wireless Architecture (OWA) platform for complete openness and simplicityRequirements for Mobile Internet Terminal (MIT)Open Wireless Architecture (OWA) in System Architecture supporting adaptive multiple RTTSOpen Spectrum Planning and Management – at least supporting dynamic spectrum allocationAffordability in services and applications – low cost though not cheapMarket: incl. trends and drivers, forecasts and implicationsBusiness Strategies: incl. mobile data value chain, mobile ISP business model, key success factorsCase Studies: DoCoMo, Virgin, probably SoneraBusiness Plan: business plans, business development support from Siemens
3 We have fundamental problem in the existing wireless communication architecture, and need to reshape the industry based on open architecture!Summary in Advance4G can support high-speed (up to 100Mbps), but high-speed is not 4G4G will focus on Open Wireless Architecture (OWA) technology instead of purely high-speed transmissionMobile WiMAX can NOT support seamless mobility, but is OK for nomadic or limited mobilityTD-SCDMA has many technical issues to be solved: Network Optimization and Further R&D will take at least ten yearsWireless Mobile Internet will face big challenge if the underlying wireless transmission architecture is not openOpen spectrum planning is relying on optimal modeling of digital GPS map and digital spectrum map of the service areaMarket: incl. trends and drivers, forecasts and implicationsBusiness Strategies: incl. mobile data value chain, mobile ISP business model, key success factorsCase Studies: DoCoMo, Virgin, probably SoneraBusiness Plan: business plans, business development support from Siemens

11 ICT Open Architecture Law “The reason we had Apple Computer is because it defined the Open Computer Architecture,The reason we had Cisco Systems is because it defined the Open Network Architecture,The world is at the edge to define the Open Wireless Architecture (OWA) to liberate the whole wireless industry.”Prof. Willie W. Lu, Dow Jones WI’2007
12 KPCB’s View on Future Mobile Phone In the Churchill Club "Top Ten Trends" on March 28th, 2007 in San Jose, John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers said his prediction is that the cell phone will be the next PC.Open architectured mobile phone gives consumers more choices for things to hang on their belts.
13 Simplicity – The Life of Phone Simplicity and Openness has become the very critical issues in designing the future mobile phone. According to Junko Yoshida, news editor of EE Times, ease of use has become a "grave issue" in engineering including mobile phone industry. Designers, she said, must "listen to the SOS from consumers". Doug Engelhart, inventor of the computer mouse, considered many options for navigation on a computer screen but chose the mouse because it tested best with users, and most importantly, for its simplicity!
