(April 2016) None of the Latin American countries have reached 50% of the 1300 MHz suggested by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) for 2015 in its ITU-R M.2078 report. This report establishes the spectrum allocation requirements for IMT-2000 and IMT-Advanced technologies, commonly referred to as 3G and 4G, to work efficiently. These requirements are reflected in 5G Americas’ white paper “Analysis of ITU Spectrum Recommendations in the Latin American Region”
(January 2016) Deployment of this infrastructure is regulated by different legislation in Latin American countries, which is often inconsistent and contradictory and leads to delays and restrictions at the time of expanding and building new networks for providing these services. This document examines the regulatory framework of selected Latin American countries for infrastructure deployment to identify best practices in the region.
(November 2015) This white paper explores the key considerations for developing an end-to-end Cellular-IoT solution.
(November 2015) Key deployment and operational issues in the transformation to all-IP based networks utilizing Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) are explained in this white paper.
(November 2015) This white paper examines data offloading from licensed LTE networks to unlicensed spectrum using Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) via LTE and WiFi Aggregation, as well as using LTE directly in unlicensed spectrum.
(October 2015) This white paper expands the foundation of 4G Americas’ view of 5G recommendations that was published in the October 2014 white paper titled, 4G Americas’ Recommendations on 5G Requirements and Solutions.
(September 2015) This summary is intended to provide a brief review of some of the key specifications and enhancements outlined in 3GPP Release 13.
(August 2015) This white paper highlights the importance of Band 28 (700 MHz APT) for the development of mobile broadband services in Latin America.
(August 2015) This white paper describes the varied drivers behind spectrum requirements and the need for access to numerous spectrum ranges. The paper also offers initial exploration on the challenges and implications with different frequency ranges, various licensing aspects and potential technology enhancements to enable access to new spectrum.
(June 2015) This report is a primer on the details of 3GPP Release 12 (Rel-12) finalized standards and new work on Release 13 (Rel-13) and beyond.
(February 2015) This updated summary explains the Release 12 (Rel-12) standards and its major features and enhancements of HSPA+, LTE and Machine Type Communications as well as technology agnostic standards, and how they benefit operators and customers.
