Cover Story

For Vodafone, Orange, and Telecom Italia, what decisions, plans and choices have they made with the mobile IP wave surging across Europe?

Main Topic

The application of wideband RF technology to the GSM system will deliver with it a breakthrough in traditional mobile networks, which will greatly assist GSM operators to lower TCO.

With the application of the wideband RF and IP technologies, the fourth generation BTS has now becoming a highlight, and fully displaying its features of "Convergence, Integration, All-IP and Green."

The green BTS benefits mobile operators mainly in these three important areas: auxiliary equipment, network deployment, and environmental protection and resources utilization.

Is it possible to apply the high-efficiency and energy-saving technologies of the 3G systems to the 2G systems? Can we smoothly evolve the 2G systems to the 3G systems?

How to Operate

Is the next-generation synchronous digital hierarchy (NG SDH) already at the end of its lifecycle? Which technology is preferred, transport multi-protocol label switching (TMPLS) or provider backbone transport (PBT)?

Roaming among a single transnational group network leads itself to lower charges, given that the benefit is exclusively enjoyed within the group, and associated services are more easily acquired.

The traffic volume has tremendously increased but the income has not kept pace. How to implement intensive management of bandwidth resources and maintain continuously growing profits?


What are the significance and value of IP to mobile operators? How do overseas operators view the IP-based network evolution?

Telecom Italia shared its perspective on innovation, indoor coverage with UMTS 900M, TCO saving, wireless access infrastructure, and more.

Media Insight

Persistence and unflagging effort underline the "Never Give Up" ethos integral to success. Indeed, 2007 richly rewarded Huawei's perseverance and capabilities with its entry into the world's three largest CDMA markets.


In the solutions, WiMAX can be integrated with GSM, CDMA, IMS, NGN and DSL networks, which helps operators to provide a variety of high-speed mobile broadband services.

Repeated hardware-based upgrades bring with significant challenges, and have led operators to question: Whether this describes the most effective and economical way of achieving network modernization?

Leading Edge

VoIP over HSPA can be considered as a super highway without a speed limit leading out of town. Despite the fact that the road is under construction and the end is not in sight, it promises a quicker and more rewarding journey.

A belief that LTE has a bright future is far from enough, then how operators can best accelerate the arrival of the LTE era?
