It is of utmost importance that any Government Prevent crime and terror. At the same time to satisfy legal procedures they should by gather admissible evidence and prosecute suspects. In the context of this, let us see how High Speed Networks provide the opportunity for Law Enforcement agencies to intercept messages and data.
Often Law Enfrocement Agencies such as the CBI and IB are interested in complete Access to the communication of the monitored target. By Complete Communication we mean Voice + Data + Video. They also want to Receive the intercepted information in a Variety of formats Real Time Voice & Video . Data Content must be in Readable format. Session Related Information in .txt / .xml / .xls format and all this should be done with utmost care and FULL confidentiality.
Interception can be Done in two ways – Active or Passive. Read the rest of this entry »
Reliance -Infotel Broadband has BWA spectrum and planned to deploy LTE across circles. LTE in 2011 was an emerging technology being developed by 3GPP. From an operators perspective, LTE provided technical benefits such as more flexible spectrum usage and fewer nodes and economic benefits such as increased spectrum efficiency and optimized backhaul.
LTE as a technology was more suited to portfolio expansion from existing 2G/3G operations to include a diverse range of mobile service elements rather than as a pure LTE deployment. The spectrum sharing norm proposed by the DoT came to the rescue of RIL, which could then enter into spectrum sharing agreements with RCOM to provide voice services using 2G services and data using the LTE network with hotspot deployment.

India’s DoT allowed spectrum sharing between operators with a higher levy based on the combined spectrum of both the operators. For example, if player A with 4.4MHz spectrum and player B with 4.4MHz spectrum agree to share spectrum, both had to pay spectrum charges on 8.8MHz. The norm allowed collaboration between operators as operators could share spectrum and infrastructure.
Spectrum sharing allowed two service providers to pool their spectrum resources, quickly roll-out services and increase the coverage area while economizing on the cost of the network. Spectrum sharing had the potential to generate significant Read the rest of this entry »
TRAI has issued Draft Guidelines on De-Linking all the Licenses from Spectrum. Currently, an operator needs to take separate licence for services such as mobile, fixed‐line, NLD, ILD, broadcasting, DTH and other allied telecom services. As going forward, the new licence will be technology‐neutral the operator can offer any telecom service. Service providers would have to separately apply/bid for requisite spectrum.
A single national level license is a step towards the One Nation-One License regime, as Read the rest of this entry »
In our view there are four key drivers: network, devices, international deployments, and deployments by China – the largest telecom market.
On the international network side, the two standards FD and TD are very similar – both OFDMA. Most vendors are Shutting Down their Wimax Ventures and are shifting to TD-LTE. TD is designed for use in unpaired spectrum, is likely to have better scale, and is arriving in time to help address the surge in wireless data traffic. Softbank in Japan has begun commercial deployment, Bharti and RIL – Infotel Broadband are in the process of rolling out in BWA spectrum in India (going straight to TD).
On the handset-device side, the key is the commercial deployment of the multi-mode chipset from Read the rest of this entry »
WE already have seen that Google’s Android SmartPhone Platform has captured a whopping 44% Marketshare globally. In Media Post Search Insider Summit in December, Google’s Michael Slinger, Director of Mobile Advertising spoke about the roadmap and here is an except of the same.
Usage from Non-PC / Laptop Platforms: In a Day-part analysis, Mobile Search tracks higher in the evenings and weekends, but the most interesting data was Tablet usage, which skews significantly higher than Mobile and Desktop Searches in the evenings – people are “watching” TV while using their Tablets.
Google is seeing such strong Tablet usage, that it now breaks out Tablet bidding on AdWords from Mobile and Desktop Search. In general, 10%-20% of total queries are coming from Mobile devices, but it differs by vertical. As an example, Google is seeing 15% of total queries in the Financial vertical coming from Mobile devices today.
Google noted that the RPS gap is closing between Mobile and Desktop, especially Read the rest of this entry »
