Re: FTTY - not such a gimmick Cars and Boats are definitely a good platform, even for some early 5G applications, much less concern about size and power requirements than smartphones.

Re: ICT 2020 AHHH. I forgot all about that hologram. I wonder what technological innovation wonders we'll be in for this time around? Will VR make an appearance?

Re: How many generations... We could potentially have at least one more version of LTE. Although, in reality, its all an evolution on the same OFDM interface and flat-IP network architecture concept that evolves over time

 

Technically speaking, what Huawei has branded as "4.5" is simply the LTE updates that the 3GPP has done in Release 13 of the LTE specification.

The very earliest work on 5G is scheduled to begin in the Release 14 timeframe for LTE but that doesn't mean that further LTE development is going to stop anytime soon.

In fact, if you want to stump an operator ask them when they might start shutting their LTE networks. Hahahahahaha!

Re: Competitive advantage Yeah, that jumped out at me too. In the US, competition gets a lot of lip service. If there's competition, you might have two options, but odds are you've come to hate both of them.

Re: ICT 2020 @msibley, do you think holoportation will replace video conferencing anytime soon? Reminds me a little of that time Will I Am showed up as a hologram on CNN during the last election.

Re: ICT 2020 Huawei's ICT 2020 divides entire networks into six clouds based on service and transport; service cloud, core cloud, operations cloud, edge cloud, cloud RAN and FBB cloud. (I think.)

Re: ICT 2020 Oh yes. My family, neighbors and I all walked around with the Google Cardboard viewer following child refugees in a story when the NY Times first started making VR content. Incredible.

Re: ICT 2020 As an alternative, I find some of the development work being done now in "mixed reality" to be fascinating. This is where you have new interactive digital elements (including people) projected into your physical space. So you might manipulate a model of something sitting at your desk, but while you can see the physical desk and everything else around you, you also know that the model that's right in front of you is actually virtual. 

Or you might have a friend or relative project themself into your space as a living hologram that you can interact with.

Check out Microsoft's holoportation demos on YouTube. It's truly mindbending where things are headed.

Re: Competitive advantage and in the US they are basically the same offer and they don't do anything to keep you past the join up period unless you call and beg for lower prices.
