HONG KONG, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The 9th GTI Workshop scheduled from February 20th to 21st was held in Barcelona, Spain before the 2014 GSMA Mobile World Congress. More than 130 delegates from 40 international operators and 30 OEMs, including China Mobile (0941.HK), SoftBank, Sprint, Vodafone, Huawei, ZTE, Sony, Samsung and Qualcomm attended this Workshop making in-depth discussions on key technical solutions and innovative service applications for the commercialization of TD-LTE.
In 2013, GIT has made great breakthrough in promoting the global deployment of TD-LTE and solving key problems in the industry chain. 4G service has been commercialized in China, leading to a coming boom of global TD-LTE market. Japanese operator SoftBank pointed out at the Workshop that under the promotion of GTI, Japanese government officially planned 3.5 GHz band for TDD in January 2014 and to finish the distribution by this year. Besides SoftBank, other Japanese operators including DoCoMo and KDDI will obtain the spectrum and launch commercial TD-LTE-Advanced service in 2016. Indonesian WiMax operator PT Internux introduced its migration to TD-LTE, which was regarded as a catalyzer for the migration from WiMax to TD-LTE.
GTI announced its development plan of this year. According to the plan, the global deployment of TD-LTE will be further promoted and greater effort will be made to promote WiMax operators to immigrate to TD-LTE. The convergence of LTE TDD/FDD will be advanced and traditional FDD operators will be encouraged to deploy TD-LTE. Besides, GTI will advocate more emerging operators to obtain TDD frequency bands and deploy TD-LTE. GTI will also enhance the development of some key products and technologies such as low-cost terminals, VoLTE, global roaming and RCS. In addition, a new Innovative Industry Application and Business Model Working Subgroup will be established to engage in the research and development of LTE-featured industry applications and business models.
In terms of 4G terminals, Sony made the global debut of its 5-mode 13-band smart phone at this Workshop -- indeed an eye-catching one. The research progress in 5-mode 13-band smart phones was also shared. This multi-mode multi-band terminal is suitable for the majority of mainstream frequency bands with global roaming capability and expected to hit market in Q2 2014. MediaTek showcased the MT6595, a premium mobile solution with the world's first 4G LTE octa-core smartphone SOC powered by the latest Cortex-A17™ CPUs from ARM®. It will be commercially available by the first half of 2014, with devices expected in the second half of the year.
Operators also discussed the requirements for the convergence of LTE TDD and FDD and Carrier Aggregation (CA) at this Summit. They expected to rely on GTI constantly to promote the maturity of TDD/FDD converged products and operation. CA, beamforming and other new technologies and products will be further matured to improve the performance of TD-LTE and provide users with more premium high-speed data service.
Jointly founded by China Mobile and other leading international mobile network operators in 2011, GTI has become a leading, most influential platform to promote the global deployment and commercialization of TD-LTE as well as the maturity of this industry. Focusing on the key areas for TD-LTE commercialization, GTI has set up a complete working group system covering network, terminal, spectrum and service, and made groundbreaking progress in these fields. After the joining of China Telecom on this February 13, GTI has now 73 partners and 100 operator members. Under the promotion of GTI, 28 commercial TD-LTE networks have been launched around the world, and more than 40 operator members are planning and constructing their commercial TD-LTE networks. GTI has been playing a more and more significant role in driving the global deployment of TD-LTE, and fast development of relevant technologies, products, business and applications for TD-LTE.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
