Could Vodafone be Softbank’s next target?

Could Vodafone be Softbank’s next target?

By Caroline Gabriel, Research Director, Maravedis-Rethink

AT&T was assumed to be a likely predator for Vodafone, once the UK-based giant was divorced from its US joint venture with Verizon. That break-up makes Vodafone somewhat smaller and more digestible for a bidder, as well as removing conflicts of…

AT&T Adds 4G LTE Coverage to 19 New Networks

Good news for small town AT&T users: the telecommunications giant announced recently that it would be rolling out high-speed 4G LTE coverage to a whole slew of new networks. All told, the coverage expansion will span 19 new networks in eight different states, and will bring AT&T’s burgeoning number of 4G LTE United States networks to over 500. Undoubtedly, the move will help to flesh out parts of AT&T’s coverage map – which has been displayed recently in a not-so-flattering light…

Are 4G-connected Cars the Next Big Mobile Innovation?

With 4G networks expanding their geographic reach and smartphone technology getting better and better, it seems as if most of the big developments in networking technology may have already been spent. Or at least, it did seem that way until this week, when Continental, a German-based company that designs, manufactures, and supplies equipment for automotive companies, announced that it was planning on developing 4G LTE connectivity technologies for cars themselves.

That’s right, a 4G…

EE Drops New Phone, Touts it as Cheapest 4G Option in the U.K.

EE may be the largest mobile network provider in the United Kingdom, but it hasn’t gotten there by consistently providing customers with the most affordable telecommunications options out there. On the contrary, one of the biggest faults to EE’s reputation is and has long been the company’s failure to provide affordable services of any sort – specifically in the 4G LTE networking genre. However, despite its reputation for offering overpriced 4G mobile plans to customers, EE is now claiming…

Top 3 4G LTE Smartphones for 2014

A few years ago, 4G LTE network coverage was just beginning to emerge in the smartphone market, and when it did appear, it was scattershot and unreliable. Nowadays, almost every smartphone worth buying has 4G functionality, and almost every mobile carrier has built its 4G LTE network into a robust, high-speed network that you can count on. In other words, 2014 might well prove to be the golden age for 4G, making it the perfect time for those with older phones to…

Company Rebuilds Samsung Galaxy S2 into Privacy-Minded Behemoth

We’d all like to think that our mobile networks are completely secure, whether from hackers looking to steal our payment information or from government agents snooping our texts and emails. Unfortunately, the fact is that mobile networks these days are huge sprawling things, and that size sometimes can give way to security breaches. In other words, you have to know that by using a mobile network – or especially…

The Business Case for VoLTE: Dialable VoIP vs. OTT Voice Services

There are many reasons for justifying Voice over LTE (VoLTE) beyond the obvious efficiencies for voice services.  Some of the business case drivers include:

  • Revenue retention
  • Preparation/foundation for RCS
  • HDTV and HD voice services
  • Next Generation Apps (Augmented Reality and others)
  • Small carrier opportunities (roamers and vacation spots)

Arguably, the biggest driver is simply “Diable VoIP”.

First of all, what is…

Self Organizing Networks: Moving Beyond 3G and Optimized with LTE

The LTE Radio Access Network (RAN) consists of the eNodeB (the Base Station), and its interfaces and network elements connected to the core network. In 3GPP Release 8 standards, operators have specific requirements for simplifying eNodeB deployment and reducing operational cost, resulting in the concept of Self-Optimized Networks (SONs).

The Mind Commerce report, Self-Organizing Networks (SON) Challenges…
