Wireless 4G developments are quickly becoming so intertwined with other realms of consumer electronics, networking, computing and media that the consequences of overlapping markets, IPR, and government involvement plays an increasing role. This becomes important in how all aspects of the supply and operator environment evolves, from the design of ICs/SoCs, to devices, and on up to operation of networks and orchestration of applications and services. At the same time, operators currently in 2G and 3G and preparing to migrate to 4G, are challenged with crunching bandwidth bottlenecks & data offloading issues, aggravated by the plethora of new iPads, iPhones and Android phones and the heavy traffic. This will form part of an exciting Agenda the 4G Forum will deliberate on.
Top-notch organizations presenting at the Forum include Chunghwa Telecom, Telefonica O2, Far EasTone Telecom, Vee TIME Telecom, UQ Communications/KDDI (Japan), Global Mobile Corp (Taiwan), Microsoft Asia, Vodafone, Ministry of Knowledge Economy (Korea), Korea Telecom, China Unicom, Fiat (Italy), ITU, Turkcell, Verizon Wireless, Viet Nam Telecommunications Authority, Smart Mobile (Philippines), Mongolia Information, Communications Technology and Post Authority & Orange.
D-Link, a global leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of advanced networking, broadband, digital, voice and data communications solutions will be showcasing their products at the Forum.
Elaborating on the importance of the Forum, Maggie Tan, CEO of Magenta Global said “Wireless infrastructure and broadband networks are vital infrastructure critical to the economic and social development of all economies. We are very pleased to bring together the stakeholders to tackle the operational challenges, the new buzz and what to expect in the months ahead.”
