Usman Javaid, PhD Vodafone, UK Broadband For Everyone - INCC 2008 Panel - May 2008
Major Drivers ??? Change in Customer Behavior Internet is a point of convergence −Emails, shopping, videos, information, music, pictures, TV, radio, social networking, database, … Passion for new services (communities, VoIP, …) Change in Technology Emerging Innovative radio access Multi-functional, multi-interface user devices Changing Business Models New players, Change in roles
Broadband Market – Developed World Broadband Penetration (Household) In France, 55.50 % In UK, 52.25 % Reaches 71% in Europe by 2013 (44% 2008) [Source: Forrester] Average Advertised DL Speed
Broadband Market – Developing World Broadband Penetration in Asia Lowest in Asia, Cambodia, 0.01% China, 3.85% Highest in Asia, Korea, 29% [Source: ITU, 2006] Case Study: Pakistan Mobile Phone Penetration −2.6% in 2004 −30% in 2007 −46% in 2008 [Source: GSM Association] Broadband −Broadband Penetration, 0.04% (2008) −Dial-up Penetration, 10% [Source: PTA]
Broadband Enablers Fixed Broadband – ADSL Involve high deployment and installation cost Suitable for the developed world, where the infrastructure already exists Mobile Broadband – Wi-Max and LTE LTE comes ~2 years later than Wi-Max (2009/2010), whereas Wi- Max is already commercially deployed in some parts of the world LTE has few technical advantages over Wi-Max LTE can simply go as an extension of UMTS based networks Wi-Max (no vendor lock-in) Learning from Experience Wireless transformed telephony; It will also transform broadband Wi-Max vs. LTE : Different Markets
Last Few Words… WiMax Provides Pakistan a Leapfrogging opportunity Faster, cheaper and more mobile access Knowledge divide between rural and urban areas Even if broadband gets to the remote villages, the people then need computers and the ability to use them Need for creative projects Nepal Wi-Fi, First Mile Solutions etc.
Defining a Telecommunication System Core Network Access Devices Services The User
Wireless Broadband Cellular Evolution: Long Term Evolution (LTE) Next generation of UMTS at 3GPP Data-rates upto 100 Mbps (DL), 50 Mbps (UL) Fully support All-IP notion Based on OFDM, MIMO Demos and Trials are planned for 2007/2008 Data Evolution: Wi-Max Wireless solution for high data-rate mobile access over long distance Fixed Wi-Max: point-to-point and point-to-multipoint Mobile Wi-Max: includes mobility support (70 Mbps) Mobile Wi-Max Now included in IMT-2000 375 trials and Deployments [Source: Wi-Max Forum] WiMax-II would be proposed for IMT-Advanced-4G Goal: 100 Mbps Mobile and 1Gbps fixed nomadic bandwidth (4G NGMN)
