FCC adopts 'Net Neutrality' rules for Internet traffic

Providers may ration network access

U.S. communications regulators adopted Internet traffic rules on Tuesday that prevent providers from blocking lawful content but still let them ration access to their networks. Operators may still legally institute policy control and traffic management, but prioritizing that traffic based on content is against the FCC's order.

How satellite and 4G will coexist

Satellite technology fueling cellular backhaul services

Satellite, when combined with 4G wireless, offers two very powerful advantages for stakeholders. First, it provides a large amount of spectrum. That spectrum enables delivery of next-generation wireless services in a world that is increasingly underserved by terrestrial spectrum and is moving in the direction of broadband wireless. Also, satellite’s large coverage footprint offers unparalleled reach to the next frontier of un-served and underserved suburban, rural and remote areas.

Cloud services can drive telco success

Will cloud solve the ARPU dilemma?

Historically, telecommunication companies have been characterized by fixed rates for telephone and Internet service. Because price is the distinguishing factor instead of features or other differentiators, the average revenue per user has been on a downward trend. The industry has been looking for a solution to this trend for some time, and some providers are now finding it in managed IT services in the cloud.

The M2M Switch - From Hindsight to Insight

Machine-to-Machine helps connect the dots in more ways than one

We have described in a recent article the dimensions of the M2M Switch currently taking place in the wireless industry: a renewed emphasis on machine-to-machine communications away from human-to-human communications, and the implementation of a new business model based on new “ABCs”: low Average Revenue per Unit or ARPU; low bandwidth or data rate transfer; and low churn or customer attrition. These characteristics are fundamentally different from the wireless operator’s traditional business model. However, the shift in the business model foundation is not the only radical change. In addition to bringing a new focus, the M2M Switch transforms the way businesses operate. As millions of remote devices are going to be linked up together, the ability to better comprehend and monitor the operational quilt or the business environment in general will be increased, and, as a result, overall productivity enhanced. The M2M Switch infuses new life into the business-to-business (B2B) M2M market.

Advanced Mobile Services Need More Powerful Processing in the Network

When capacity scales up, so must the back end

As mobile usage in the developed countries moves rapidly from voice to applications, the level of call processing in the network must increase correspondingly. Applications such as video and navigation require hundreds of times more data than voice, and the network’s processing capabilities must be upgraded to handle it. Yet choices now being made about 4G infrastructures will significantly impact operators’ ability to scale processing power as needed.
