Spectrum is fundamental to the success of mobile wireless communications. In recent years, it has been difficult to add new spectrum due to incumbent or legacy use. Shared spectrum opens opportunities to unlock additional, currently underutilized, spectrum for mobile broadband, in situations when incumbent or co-primary use does not diminish the value of that spectrum to the mobile operator. This is important because clearing this underused spectrum for exclusive use by the mobile industry would not be possible within reasonable time frames.
The new era of 4G IP networking is founded on the creation of a network with the scale and scope required to satisfy the demands of an increasingly connected world. As we get closer to the Networked Society, operators face three fundamental challenges: rising subscriber expectations, a fast-evolving commercial landscape, and exponential growth in data traffic.
5G will integrate new and existing radio-access technologies, rather than be based on a single breakthrough technology, and this will mark the next phase of a radically transformative global process – the connectivity revolution. And while it’s too early to know exactly what 5G will mean for individual players or industries, there is no doubt it will disrupt value chains and enable new opportunities on an unprecedented scale both within and across industries.
The explosive growth of smartphones and app usage bring new challenges to mobile operators. App coverage is an approach to meet those challenges by translating users’ expectations into network performance targets.
