Let's Go LTE Crazy!


The discussion below talks about the complexities/confusion surrounding LTE and its variation  or earlier and later versions, and because of the slight deception, whether intentional or marketing strategy, adds up to the puzzlement.

I think Axelei was able to explain it real good...though I'm still at a lost and suffering nosebleed. Read on.


"Let’s make this clear since you are spreading wrong information in your podcast and blogs.

HSPA+ is 3.75G, the current LTE of Smart and Globe is 3.9G and LTE Advanced is the real 4G based on the final spec.

Please read up on your topic before making any comments."
Actually anything between HSPA and the original WiMax is called 3G Transitional and it pertains to all 3.5G, 3.75G, and 3.9G. It doesn’t matter which one you pick, its an unofficial name that didn’t get certified.

However, companies (including Globe), called it 4G as most of US did when they didn’t have the real 4G spec.

Today, you have LTE (advanced), as you say and that’s the official spec 4G.

Whichever the case, anything that isn’t LTE is considered 3.9g or lower.
 
"What is funny is that you keep on referring to HSPA+ as 3.9G. I don’t know where you got that information. Please, if you have to criticize the telco, be properly informed beforehand."

Here you go then:
http://www.eetimes.com/design/microwave-rf-design/4018983/3GPP-Long-Term-Evolution-System-Overview-Product-Development-and-Test-Challenges

LTE in Context

3GPP LTE is one of five major wireless standards sometimes referred to as “3.9G.” The other so-called 3.9G standards are: 3GPP HSPA+, 3GPP EDGE Evolution, 3GPP2 ultra-mobile broadband (UMB), and Mobile WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e), which encompasses the earlier WiBro developed by the Telecommunications Technology Association (TTA) in Korea.

There’s this too:
http://www.brighthand.com/special_section/?ss_id=101&page_id=20

This reality, though, hasn’t stopped those carriers from marketing LTE, WiMAX (a 3G technology, by the way, according to the ITU), and even HSPA and HSPA+ as 4G. Such is not entirely unfair, as performance for each of these can easily exceed the two Mbps of the ITU’s 3G definition. Other unofficial designations, including 3.5G, 3.75G, and 3.9G have consequently been used to describe these technologies.

And then there’s Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_mobile_phone_standards

3G transitional
(3.5G, 3.75G, 3.9G)
3GPP family
HSPA HSPA+ LTE (E-UTRA)
3GPP2 family
CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision A (TIA/EIA/IS-856-A)
EV-DO Revision B (TIA/EIA/IS-856-B) DO Advanced
IEEE family
Mobile WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e) Flash-OFDM IEEE 802.20
—————
Of course in official ITU terms 3.9G should stand for LTE (non Advanced). However, everybody has been using the terms loosely – just like when WiFi N was still in draft form. You should also look at how Globe was marketing their HSPA+ as “4G”. Shouldn’t they be calling it 3.5G? I don’t know.

http://www.businessmirror.com.ph/home/companies/10416-globe-beats-rivals-in-4g-mobile-race


Perhaps the telcos have to clearly define their standards better and not confuse its users before we should start really using their official names.

How Has Social Media Helped Your Community?

During the heavy flooding in the Philippines by a monsoon we just called "Habagat", I used Facebook to post pictures and status of flooded areas on my page so that the people who do not have access to computers but have mobile phones with Internet capabilities were able to see the status of the flooding in Manila. It also helped the Filipinos who were based abroad or out of the country during that time and were concerned of the conditions of their families and relatives here in the Philippines.

Amazon Unveils Kindle Paperwhite


Amazon unveiled a new “frontlit” e-ink Kindle, with a sharper display called “Kindle Paperwhite.”

Jeffrey Preston "Jeff" Bezos, Founder and CEO of Amazon, took the stage to detail some of its impressive specs. The Kindle Paperwhite includes 25% more contrast than the Pearl screens featured in existing Kindle models and touts a 62% higher-resolution display. It measures in at 9.1 mm with a thin bezel and weighs in at 7.5 ounces. It is slimmer than a magazine and lighter than a paperback. All of its seven fonts are adjustable in size.

It also includes a “Time to Read” feature, which tracks your reading speed and informs you how much time it will likely take you to finish a chapter. This could help you decide whether or not to go to sleep or stay up late to finish a chapter, based on your own speed. Another feature called X-Ray provides character bios and allows you to jump back into the part of a book where they are first introduced.


The Kindle Paperwhite 3G is $179 and $119 for Wi-Fi only.

The device will likely compete with Barnes & Noble’s Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight device. which is priced at $139 for the Wi-Fi only version.

The Kindle Paperwhite will ship on October 1 and pre-orders start today.

Ubisoft Scraps Always-On DRM, Favors One-Time Activation


In an interview with RPS, Ubisoft worldwide games director Stephanie Perotti divulged that the company is dropping its infamous always-on DRM strategy. In fact, Ubisoft already quietly euthanized the program a few months ago -- probably following the From Dust fiasco -- but now it is official.

Ubisoft has perhaps been the largest proponent of always-on DRM, incorporating it into many high-profile games. The company has gone on record stating that always-on DRM schemes have shown a clear reduction in piracy, but Perotti said she considers that an "unfortunate" comment, alluding the fact that Ubisoft has always refused to publish any substantive data.

While Perotti and corporate communications manager Michael Burk managed to deftly skirt around most DRM-related questions, but they did assure RPS that always-on DRM is buried and gone. From now on, Ubisoft will rely on simple, one-time activation methods. Cited as an example, Assassin's Creed 3 will require a one-time activation, but may be installed on an unlimited number of computers. And, in an unusual twist for the company, the game will allow single-player action without an Internet connection.

Always-on DRM has frequently been criticized as an unnecessarily draconian form of digital rights management, namely due to its burdensome nature for legitimate, paying customers. When conditions aren't ideal (e.g. poor internet service, PC upgrades and server issues), most always-online solutions break down -- even in single player -- and quickly convert what would otherwise be joyous fun into utter frustration. Interestingly, the overwhelming majority of readers who responded to our poll claim DRM-related issues have spoiled their fun on at least one occasion.

Additionally, the efficacy of always-on DRM continues to be questioned. While it may curb casual copying, studies have shown inconvenient DRM measures may actually increase piracy. Meanwhile, hackers and crackers seem to always find a way to circumvent even the toughest DRM mechanisms and have even exploited such schemes in dangerous ways.

Although PC games account for only 7 percent of Ubisoft's sales, Perotti said that Ubisoft is working hard to close the gaps between PC and console games. The company has been criticized by PC gamers for not adequately tailoring cross-platform games, leaving PC ports too "consolified" for PC-gaming tastes. Also, console releases frequently ship months ahead of their PC counterparts -- another issue Ubisoft is aiming to address.
