以4G/5G的基準效能調查與標準化配合措施為焦點之資訊服務 Signals Ahead - Newsletter Subscription: Focused on 4G/5G Benchmarking Performance Studies and Standardization Activities
出版日期: 12 Issues/Year 內容資訊: 英文
簡介

Signals Research Group(SRG)是一家總部位於美國的市場調查/諮詢公司,該服務是在12個月內發行包括12個Signals Ahead報告和4-6個Signals Flash報告的資訊服務。

Signals Ahead提供以技術為中心的信息,主要側重於基準研究和3GPP標準化活動。基準研究涉及對新網絡或設備功能以及新技術,服務和應用程序的詳細測試和分析。雖然這些研究非常深入,但報告的編寫風格深入淺出,也適合非技術人員。除了提供Signals Ahead出版物之外,SRG還利用其在基準測試領域的專業知識和聲譽,提供配合個別企業多種需求的服務。調查對象有基礎建設技術的主要供應商,晶片組和設備的廠商,行動通訊業者,社群網路企業等。

在過去幾年中,Signals Ahead基於在世界各地的研究,提供了業界首次真正獨立的多種技術性能分析。

目錄

Signals Research Group (SRG) is a US-based research consultancy that publishes its research in a subscription-based product called Signals Ahead. A subscription includes 12 Signals Ahead reports and 4-6 Signals Flash reports over a period of approximately 12 months.

Signals Ahead provides technology-focused information and is primarily focused on benchmark studies and 3GPP standardization activities. The benchmark studies involve detailed testing and analysis of new network or device features as well as new technologies, services, and applications. Although these studies are very in-depth, the reports are written in a style that is suitable for non-technical individuals. In addition to providing the Signals Ahead publication, SRG leverages its expertise and reputation in the field of benchmark testing to engage companies on an individual basis. Sample companies include many of the major infrastructure suppliers, chipset and device companies, as well as mobile operators and social networking companies.

Over the last few years, Signals Ahead has provided the industry's first truly independent performance analysis of multiple technologies, based on studies performed around the world.

Sample industry firsts include:

  • 5G Millimeter Wave (Verizon Wireless) - February 2018
  • 5G Fixed Wireless (Verizon Wireless) - October 2018
  • Massive MIMO (Sprint) - November 2018
  • LAA (AT&T) - January 2018
  • 4-carrier Carrier Aggregation (Telstra) - April 2017
  • 4x4 MIMO (T-Mobile) - January 2017
  • Uplink 64-QAM (SK Telecom) - September 2016
  • 256-QAM (Telstra) - May 2016
  • FDD + TDD Carrier Aggregation (Optus) - March 2016
  • 8T8R (Sprint) - May 2015
  • IR-94 Video Telephony (AT&T) - March 2015
  • 3-carrier Carrier Aggregation (LG U+) - May 2015
  • LTE (TeliaSonera) - February 2010
  • DC-HSDPA (Telstra) - January 2011
  • Category 6 LTE (SK Telecom) - September 2014
  • LTE TDD versus LTE FDD (Softbank) - September 2013
  • HSPA+ (Telstra) - July 2009
  • VoLTE (AT&T) - August 2014
  • 2x2 MIMO (T-Mobile) - August 2013

In the coming year, the Signals Ahead publication will continue to focus on benchmark studies and 5G standardization activities. Sample research that is planned, includes:

  • 3GPP-based IoT benchmark studies - field and lab
  • 5G NR millimeter wave benchmark studies - 28 GHz and 39 GHz
  • 5G NR sub-6 GHz benchmark studies - 2.5 GHz, 3.5 GHz and sub 2 GHz (last one not likely until late 2019)
  • 2 Gbps LTE
  • CBRS
  • LTE-Broadcast versus unicast
  • Small cell optimization
  • UL-CoMP
  • MU-MIMO, Part 2 - 5G NR and LTE
  • 3GPP standardization updates - published quarterly

Signals Flash provides near-real-time feedback and analysis on industry events or quick thoughts from our benchmark studies. Over the last year, the Signals Flash reports have provided rapid insight on activities occurring during 3GPP standardization meetings as well as initial thoughts while testing 5G.
