  Subscriber Data- Informa Telecoms and Media, World Cellular Information Service, March 2009 1 GSM to 3G and Beyond June 2009 www.3gamericas.org 3.7 Billion GSM-HSPA subscriptions worldwide today and growing ã   Largest scope and scale: over 750 mobile GSM network operators in 219 countries ã   GSM family technologies held an estimated 89% market share of global digital wireless subscriptions as of March 2009 and an estimated 72% Western Hemisphere market share that continues to grow ã   GSM technologies have an estimated 89% market share in the Latin America and Caribbean region today and growing ã   Worldwide, there were nearly 330 million UMTS-HSPA subscriptions as of March 2009, and over 474 million are projected by year end 2009 ã   GSM-UMTS-HSPA customers will comprise the overwhelming majority of subscribers over the next ten years, even as new wireless technologies are adopted UMTS-HSPA accounts for the majority of worldwide broadband networks today, and will continue its leadership for the next decade. ã   HSPA is faster than any other mobile broadband technology ever deployed ã   285 commercial UMTS-HSPA networks in 125 countries (June 2009) ã   Over 1,389 commercial HSDPA devices from 138 suppliers have been made available worldwide since the technology's launch (GSM Association, June 2009) ã   329 million UMTS-HSPA subscriptions worldwide in March 2009 ã   By end of 2013, the global 3G wireless market will include over 2 billion subscriptions, of which 1.6 billion will be 3GPP family technologies with 80% share of market  Subscriber Data- Informa Telecoms and Media, World Cellular Information Service, March 2009 2 www.3gamericas.org The GSM-UMTS technical migration from HSPA to HSPA+ and LTE will be the most compelling choice for most operators around the world. HSPA ã   HSPA is an enhancement to UMTS and offers a successful combination of spectral efficiency (3 times that of UMTS) and high speed data throughput, thus enabling true mass market mobile broadband ã   HSPA users can expect typical downlink throughput rates of 700 to 1700 Kbps. Planned enhancements will increase peak user-achievable throughput rates, with operators already measuring 4 Mbps on some networks. ã   HSUPA users experience typical uplink throughput rates of 500 to 1200 Kbps today ã   UMTS-HSPA technology and its evolution beyond 3G will compete with any and all mobile wireless technologies available today and in the near future. HSPA+ ã   HSPA+, a simple upgrade to the HSPA networks today, protects an operator’s investment in the network ã   HSPA+ provides a strategic performance roadmap advantage for incumbent GSM-HSPA operators providing OFDMA-equivalent performance in 5X5 MHz spectrum allocations with only incremental investment ã   HSPA+ will significantly increase HSPA capacity as well as reduce latency below 50 msec ã   The first phase of HSPA+ with 64 QAM is already being deployed by some carriers providing a peak theoretical downlink throughput rate of 21.6 Mbps ã   HSPA+ with 64 QAM and 2X2 MIMO can deliver 42 Mbps theoretical capability on the downlink and 11.5 Mbps on the uplink and could be ready for deployment in 2010. This is afforded by the standards although there have only been announcements of trials to date. LTE ã   Most leading operators, device and infrastructure manufacturers, as well as content providers support LTE as the mobile technology of the future ã   LTE, a high data rate, low latency radio-access technology, is the next evolution beyond UMTS-HSPA and will utilize Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology ã   LTE trials are now underway with early stages of LTE deployment expected in 2010 ã   LTE’s OFDMA approach matches or exceeds the capabilities of any other OFDMA system ã   LTE uses advanced antenna techniques such as Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), which will allow operators to achieve even higher peak throughputs in higher spectrum bandwidth. 3GPP reports peak theoretical downlink throughput rates of up to 326 Mbps and 86 Mbps uplink in 20 MHz with 4X4 MIMO.  Subscriber Data- Informa Telecoms and Media, World Cellular Information Service, March 2009 3 www.3gamericas.org  ã   LTE assumes full-IP network architecture, and is designed to support voice in the packet domain. Other features include: o  Scalability to operate in bandwidths from 1.4 to 20 MHz o  Operability in both TDD and FDD modes o  Reduced latency, to 10 milliseconds round-trip time between user equipment and the base station, and to less than 100 milliseconds transition time from inactive to active Evolution of TDMA, CDMA and OFDMA Systems Source – EDGE, HSPA and LTE Broadband Innovations. 3G Americas and Rysavy Research, September 2008   3G Americas’ member companies are fully engaged in defining future IMT-Advanced (so-called ‘4G’) requirements through the ITU process and will have supporting technology in place. ã   The ITU has provided the term IMT-Advanced to define further generations of mobile wireless technology ã   3GPP is working on LTE-Advanced which will meet IMT-Advanced requirements with a time line for deployment expected to begin sometime after 2012
