Manuel Vera, Senior Manager – Network (National Network Performance), Bell Mobility

Please tell us about your role?

I am responsible for the introduction of new technology and network performance support.   I also have oversight of network performance trends and analysis.  Lastly, I develop processes to support new technologies as well as evaluate new solutions to better manage network performance.

What changes have you seen in the industry over the last 12 months?

The speed of technology turn over and adoption has changed dramatically.  It has gone from 10 Years, to 5 years, to recently a matter of 1 year. (AMPS -> CDMA -> EVDO -> 3G UMTS -> HSPA -> LTE -> LTE-A)

What are your priorities for the next year ahead?

It comes down to three key areas -small cells. continuing the ‘Speed Game’ (2xCarrier Aggregation, 3xCarrier Aggregation), and delivering connectivity and managing network performance at special events and large venues.

How can industry help overcome your current challenges?

There is a pipeline of technology that will drive network automation – Better SON features – complete dSON deployments and explore cSON systems.

In your opinion, why should medics and industry representatives attend HetNet North America in May 2015?

The event is a good way to learn about the industry and keep track of the latest trends.  I found over the years that in events such as this, we either ratify the direction we are taking or we rectify it based on our key takeaways.

Interview: CEO, MTC Namibia: “In terms of maintaining business mobile sustainability into the future the price-per-gigabyte is critical.”

Miguel Geraldes, CEO, MTC, Namibia

Miguel Geraldes, CEO, MTC, Namibia

Miguel Geraldes, CEO, MTC Namibia is speaking on the subject of LTE launch strategies in Africa at the second annual LTE Africa conference, taking place on the 11th-13th November 2014 in Cape Town, South Africa.

You’ve already launched LTE in Namibia? What have you learned from the experience?

Indeed, MTC launched LTE in May 2012, with an aim to increase speed and capacity, especially for mobile broadband users (dongles and routers), as well as the new smartphone users. MTC’s strategy since 2008 was to compete in the broadband market, first using 3G, and thereafter LTE to fight against ADSL. To become the market leader in the broadband segment using mobile pushed MTC to deliver a more efficient service in terms of speed and latency against the fixed services, and against WiMAX in the wireless. But as a third of the customer base was already using advanced smartphones, not providing LTE was not an option.

What makes launching LTE in Namibia different and more challenging than doing so in Europe?

Christian Menini, Project Director Wireless and LTE, Swisscom

Christian Menini, Project Director Wireless and LTE, Swisscom is giving a real life case study about Swisssom’s LTE deployment on Day One of the LTE Voice Summit, taking place on October 7th-8th 2014 at the Royal Garden Hotel, London.

What are you expecting and hoping for from the commercial launch on VoLTE?

The commercial launch of VoLTE, which we are aiming for next year at Swisscom as well, really does have the potential to get the ball rolling. With VoLTE, the MNP are completing the technological change that will enable them to further develop mobile voice communication, as one of their most important assets, and reposition it.

I believe the good old “voice service” may experience a small “renaissance”. Over the past few years voice has been forced into the background by all of the new communication forms. But I’m convinced: Voice is not only noise.

As we approach commercial launch is there any clearer idea of whether VoLTE will truly compete or will it just complement OTT services?

Here we found out more about the strategy around the transition from WiMAX to LTE.

What is your mission and what are the main challenges you are facing in delivering wireless broadband?

Our mission is to provide affordable broadband to all, so that they can experience the best of the Internet. We have been operating using WiMAX technology for more than five years and are currently in the planning stages for transition to TD-LTE. Our aim is to provide high-speed broadband service to end users no matter what technologies we are using.

Air interface management is always challenging, especially when the frequency band is above 2GHz. Then deep indoor seamless coverage becomes one of the major challenges. Other than that, end user demand for high volume content has increased significantly in last few years. With limited wireless resources, capacity management is a vital point for us. Development of LTE is now real and there are numerous live networks around the world, we expect we will be able to meet the user demand with LTE deployment.

How has the TD-LTE eco-system progressed over the last 12 months and what are your expectations for the next couple of years?

What are the broad challenges that you expect to face over the next five years?

For developing country like Bangladesh, the key challenge is to make LTE a profitable business case for the operators. In Bangladesh, we still have very low Internet usage and the use of data is just not up to the mark, mostly due to lack of local content and overpriced Internet bandwidth at consumer level. Therefore, the challenge is more on socio-economic part rather than technical.

What is your strategy for increasing consumer uptake of LTE services?

What are the major challenges that you believe you will face over the next couple of years?

The Philippines has a lot of potential, not just in the area of broadband but as a nation. With economic growth still moving at a higher pace than most of our neighbours, the Philippines is a good growth story.

Recently we’ve had a major typhoon that hit us, and who knows how the environment will fair in the years to come. One challenge we need to address is disaster-preparedness, how quickly can we respond and reduce customer downtime.

The other challenge we see is how strategically can we evolve as a company to be at the centre of the digital life of our customers? This is all about moving beyond dumb pipes and becoming more relevant to our customers’ day-to-day activities.

Sun Tae Kim, EVP Corp R&D, LG U+

Sun Tae Kim, EVP Corp R&D, LG U+

LG U+ believes South Korea’s market leading network status derives from the cutting-edge handsets present in the market. In this interview he details the plans for bringing further enhancements and speeds to the network over the next couple of years. To hear more about LGU+’s strategy you can hear Sun Tae Kim, EVP/Director of SD, LG U+, speak on Day Two of the 9th annual LTE Asia conference taking place on the 23rd-25th September 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. 

Operators in South Korea seem more willing and able to invest in next-gen technologies earlier than many Western operators? Why do you think this is so?

South Korea has the world-leading manufacturers of smart devices – such as Samsung and LG – and implemented nationwide LTE network sporting the best quality and functionality. But mobile subscribers have been already saturated. The Korean operators, SKT, KT, and LGU+, could not survive in the market just with existing technology and can only beat the competition with new technologies and services. As a result, South Korea has become the world test-bed for next generation technologies.

Following on from that would you say South Korean customers are more willing to try, and pay for, new mobile services?

Are billing systems keeping pace with changes in how MNOs now charge for data?

Billing vendors are trying to keep up with the phenomenal growth of data and the need to support different charging mechanisms. However, the data market dynamics are such that it makes them hard to cope with these changes and implement them in a short time. The constant billing system updates also comes at a cost, with which most of MNOs are not willing to keep up. We believe the flexibility in billing platforms should be increased, thus enabling MNOs to create their own service/charging logic without going through the pain of frequent investing in billing platforms.
