Mobile US to boost LTE capabilities with Ericsson

Mobile US to boost LTE capabilities with Ericsson

Telstra hasn't stated which devices it is using for the trial.

These projects lay the foundations of the program we described in October 2016 and provide the foundation for Telstra's Network of the Future program which is essential to delivering our customers a brilliantly connected future.

"The solution will use Telstra's Media Optimised Network, including LTE-B capability to pre-position content, and therefore have limited impact on overall network traffic with little to no additional infrastructure cost".

For the IoT initiative, Telstra and Ericsson have now commenced localized CAT-M1 trials in Melbourne and Tasmania in the first stage of a deployment across Telstra's 4G network, which covers over 98% of Australia's population.

With Telstra working with Ericsson to make certain that its infrastructure is ready for launch, the former's Group Managing Director Networks, Mike Wright, was cited as saying: '99% of Telstra's 4GX [-branded] sites are already LTE-B capable, with the intention to have nationwide enablement and coverage for LTE-B by 2018.

"Building Cat-M1 services for IoT using the scale and standardisation of the 3GPP roadmap allows the rapid rollout of Cat-M1 through a new network software activation and provides the ideal platform for a proliferation of IoT devices and applications".

Supreme Court may strike down a law that North Carolina said aims to stop child predators from reaching kids on social media. Justice Elena Kagan was even more pointed, as she hammered North Carolina Senior Deputy Attorney General Robert C.

"This live pilot is an example of how Ericsson is partnering with industry leaders across both the content and telco worlds to deliver innovative solutions that will transform viewing experiences and create new business models and monetization opportunities that help our customers to be competitive and lead the pack as digital pioneers". Our expanded optical network will support important emerging network capabilities such as IoT, 5G and enhanced media delivery.

LTE-B is a dedicated technology for broadcasting media over LTE networks for enhanced mobile video services such as mobile TV broadcasting and live streaming video services.

Over three years, Ericsson will deliver for Telstra a new Optical transmission network which is essentially the behind the scenes superhighway for all our wireless and mobile communications with Telstra.

Telstra's Wright said the development was a big step forward in preparing for 5G. "In collaboration with Expway, Ericsson is enabling Telstra to perform interoperability testing for session continuity and MooD features with production pilot in 2017".

According to the announcement, prefiguring further news at Mobile World Congress 2017, the latest entertainment titles will be made available to participating consumers at the highest quality, and with the sanction of participating studios.
