LTE and HSPA: timing of features report

Our report on the features of LTE and HSPA and how they might change over time has just been published. This includes a detailed look at the standards, comparing the roadmap of capabilities which will emerge from the 3G standards. It also includes a roundup of the mobile devices which have been announced by manufacturers and an exclusive look at a survey of manufacturers (conducted by the nice folks at Rethink Research) regarding their plans to support various features and frequency bands in future devices.

The full report is available here, and the wider consultation documents published by Ofcom are here.

Example of extending LTE 800 MHz coverage for mid and North Wales

We extended our modeling tools specifically for the purpose to allow us to efficiently place new sites – both macrocells and small cells – on a cost-efficient basis, taking full account of terrain and the locations of users.

The full report is available here, and the wider consultation documents are here. Further information on this project is available here.
