The Smart Home @ Wireless summit, sponsored by GTI, was attended by more than 100 participants including Huawei, Nokia, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., 20 operators, analysts, and media representatives. This summit provided the opportunity to exchange ideas and outline the strategy to derive the most benefit from the 4G WBB industry.
Smart Home @ Wireless Summit
Huawei demonstrated a mature E2E ecosystem at this summit, including latest CPE and MiFi, with support of all main LTE TDD bands, 4x4 MIMO, TDD+FDD 3CC CA, and many more. A range of diversified user experiences were shown at the Smart Home exhibition area including 360°live VR monitoring with 4G backhaul, strong visual impression with 4K, 1080P and 720P comparison. Visitors were also able to control lights, curtains, and robot sweepers remotely by using a mobile App. One application allowed attendees to try on virtual clothes facing a mirror in a dressing room, with the image simultaneously being sent to a smartphone. For family home entertainment systems, it allows for an immersive experience when using with VR games.
Qualcomm Technologies shared the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ LTE chipset and roadmap, including the first gigabit class LTE solution -- the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem. With peak download speeds of up to 1 Gbps -- or 500x the speed of 3G 10 years ago and 10x the speed of LTE only 5 years ago, the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem will support future WBB services like AR, VR and apps that require instantaneous connectivity to the cloud.
Nokia brought Fast Mile CPE on spot for exhibition, Nokia FastMile offers guaranteed speeds and easy-to-install residential devices (Fast Mile CPE), providing higher capacity by utilizing advanced antenna topology and interference mitigation technologies.
Speeches provided on this occasion were aimed specifically at 4G WBB industry, and provided a premise for hot key points of keen interest and discussion at this event.
Dr. Liu Guangyi, CTO of Wireless and Device dept CMRI, Spectrum WG Chair of GTI, presented a speech of “TDD Plays a Big Role in Wireless Broadband Market”. He said that 4G WBB provides solutions to the last mile connection. LTE TDD is especially suitable for 4G WBB development, with lots of advantages, such as large continuous spectrum with big block, mature ecosystem, continuously evolution (TDD+) which improves network performance greatly. GTI will continue to work with industry partners to speed up the commercialization of LTE TDD.
Mr. Veni Shone, President of TDD Product Line of Huawei stated that the data provided by the latest ITU broadband report, there are over 900 million households without broadband access until 2015. In addition, a huge demand still exists to increase the transmission rate for broadband access. In order to overcome those, Huawei provides the E2E WTTx solution, which has had overwhelming commercial success around the world. This fully denotes the great commercial success achieved by 4G WBB. Given the experience of successful WTTx network deployment and the foreseeable commercial successes, operators can build up great confidence in the adoption of 4G WBB. In this way, they will seize more household and enterprise market shares and improve revenue. Huawei will remain committed to helping more families bridge the digital divide, increasing the intelligence of home appliances to provide more diversified applications, and further enrich people's lives. Mrs. Jyoti, Vice President, Head of Global Common R&D of Nokia said:” Nokia FastMile for TD-LTE empowered infinite possibility to deliver fixed broadband services using TD-LTE.” Smart Home @ Wireless aims to bolster valuable cooperation between industry partners, create a fully connected world, bridge the new digital divide, and promote the digital development of all societies.
