1 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum Digital World Forum WP3 – low-cost broadband access and infrastructure Bruno Conquet & Max Francisco Orange Labs France

2 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum Orange Labs: leading partner for Digital World Forum / WP3 WP1: Mobile Web applications WP2: Low-Cost Laptops WP3: Low-cost Broadband access & infrastructures to devise a generic approach to the "last mile" issue in developing countries, by assessing each key technological solution in the light of a typology of local contextual factors

3 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum One of the main telecommunications operators in the world Providing services to more than 170 million customers over five continents Including 120 million under the Orange brand FT-Orange: one of the worlds leading telecom operators 1/2

4 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum N°3 in Europe for mobile services with almost 110 million customers 13 million mobile broadband customers with access to the Orange world portal on the move European leader in broadband Internet (ADSL) with almost 12 million customers 6.1 million Liveboxes, the key to high-speed services European leader in ADSL television with more than 1.2 million customers at home with Orange Business Services, the group is one of the world leaders supplying telecommunications to more than 3,750 MNCs at work FT-Orange: one of the worlds leading telecom operators 2/2

6 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum Digital World Forum / WP3 Objectives The goal of this work package is to devise a generic approach to the "last mile" issue in developing countries, by thoroughly assessing each key technological solution in the light of contextual factors. The expected outcome is a set of recommendations (technological roadmap) for R&D initiatives to be undertaken at EU level to improve existing technologies or promote new ones and further reduce costs. The project focuses on wireless, non satellite-based solutions, in order to stay in line with a stringent low-cost approach. Deliverables: –D3.1 State-of-the-art analysis of the broadband access and infrastructure domain (delivered in 2008; downloadable at dwfd31october08fullpdf) dwfd31october08fullpdf –D3.2 Workshop on wireless access and infrastructure in Kampala, co- organized with Makerere University (May 4-5, 2009) –D3.3 Access and infrastructure roadmap (Aug., 2009)

7 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum Digital World Forum / WP3 – elements of context 1/2 typology of access technologies Wireline: –xDSL, usually in urban areas; technology using high frequencies of the copper telephone line to transport Internet data, VoIP or IPTV, typically 512kbps up to 20Mbps –Dialup on PSTN, whenever the technological constraints prevent from using xDSL, typically 40kbps up to 80kbps with accelerator Access to radio resource depends on the opportunity, –frequency –spectrum available, –density –Targeted application

8 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum Current broadband customers in Africa –Rich individual customers (upper class, 5% of population): target partly reached by xDSL, CDMA2000 and WiMax deployment –Business customers partly reached by these deployments –Existing collective access by cyber centers in urban areas to be expanded Action plan to develop the broadband penetration in emerging countries based on sharing access offers adapted to these markets –To complement existing xDSL coverage –To launch offers in areas not covered by copper lines –To launch offers in new markets Challenge for ISPs: to increase broadband customers at lower cost beyond high-end customers toward mass market in emerging countries Digital World Forum / WP3 – elements of context 2/2 current broadband situation and challenges

9 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum * All indicated throughputs are cell downlink (which is divided among users in the cell) except for EDGE & UMTS WIMAX family CDMA familyGSM family Bandwidth used ** ** Indicated throughputs imply a fixed amount of bandwidth. Reduced bandwidth will reduce throughput downlink accordingly 1,25Mhz Average Cell Throughput Downlink * Availabilty Mhz 10Mhz 5Mhz *** WiMAX 2008 with MiMo (6Mbit/s for WiMAX 16 e without MiMo) Wifi EDGE 100 kbit/s per user HSPA+ 8 Mbit/s HSDPA 3,5 Mbit/s UMTS R' kbit/s LTE 32,6 Mbit/s GSM / GPRS 12 kbit/s UMB 31,8 Mbit/s CDMA2000 1xRTT 100 kbit/s EV-DO Rev0 700 kbit/s EV-DO RevA 2 Mbit/s WIMAX 16d WIMAX 16 e *** 11 Mbit/s WIMAX 16 m 32 Mbit/s Wifi / Wifi mesh 8-9 Mbit/s n 100 Mbit/s Main findings to date 1/2 Overview of Access networks

10 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum Main findings to date 2/2 Strengths, Weaknesses and Issues (450 Mhz)

11 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum Next steps 1/2 The WP3 workshop was held early this week (May 4-5) in Kampala the key findings generated during the workshop will make up the framework of the technological roadmap, e.g.: Infrastructure sharing (backbone / core net. / backhaul / towers / power stations) Upgradable software-based infrastructures (rather than hardware-based) Energy-efficient equipments and routing protocols to enhance network performance the proceedings of the workshop are scheduled for publication by the end of May

12 Session 4a, 6 May 2009 IST-Africa 2009 Copyright 2009 DigitalWorld Forum Next steps 2/2 The DWF project, with a focus on WP3, will be presented during the WWRF (Wireless World Research Forum) meeting held May 5-7, in Paris Strong synergies between DWF/WP3 and WWRF are anticipated, as the development of broadband in Africa is high on WWRF's research agenda The technological roadmap will be made available by August 31, and presented during DWFs final event, planned September 29.
