Analog Cellular Networks

Broadband communications in Norwegian fjords Hanover/Berlin, January 19, 2009 – Norway is incredibly beautiful especially in those corners, which are somewhat secluded. Now, it could be even more beautiful after a report by technology review. “At least for people who want to be online anytime, anywhere: A provider called the ice.NET is for some time preparing, nature-loving people in the lodge in the fjord outside on one of the many islands as well as himself in a boat off the coast of the communications technology must-have of nowadays to provide: broadband Internet”, so technology review. The company put in a clever combination of old and new technology: the provider use the license of old Norse analog mobile communications NMT and also run a so-called CDMA network in the United States under the slogan of EVDO known. These procedures allow the simultaneous transmission of different data streams on a common frequency range. The advantage compared to UMTS: Because NMT sends on a lower frequency than UMTS and receives, fewer base stations are necessary and the waves pass. That’s enough for 2.5 to 3 megabits in thinner besiedelteren regions, slightly further out you get, after all, still just a megabit,”technology review writes. The technique was simple.

You can either get a USB modem or even simple a compact Wi-Fi router that is booked at the same time in the wireless broadband Internet access. You don’t need password or SIM card, the device is immediately booked. The router will generate its own private Wi-Fi zone, in which you can engage all the machines in the House. Paid around 250 euros for the hardware, if you want to contract no longer otherwise will be cheaper. For the flat-rate, again almost 50 euros are added in the month. Norwegian standards it’s a bargain”, technology review announced. For Germany, it would be possible as something only according to the specifications of the Federal Network Agency. There should be a political and economic interest with emphasis publicly expressed be”, so the assessment Andreas latzel, Germany head of the ICT Anbieteres Aastra, opposite NeueNachricht.

In the face of four UMTS licenses, which are all very expensive purchased that was very questionable. New 3G-ubertragungsverfahren might not be enforced at the time. The idea is not technically absurd. So, the frequency bands of the former analog C mobile network for Railnet are available, the network for the supply of ICE trains of the Deutsche Bahn. Flash-OFDM modulation technique there in the 450 MHz band to the usage at speeds in the downlink of 1.5 and 5.1 Mbit per second. Technology from rural regions without DSL would can thus open up”, White Lady. However, the situation around WiMAX (802.16) show how are business models for broadband services Council and competition DSL against cable networks make difficult in the age of the flat. While in Germany, WiMAX licenses were awarded in December 2006, still no offer on base is now 24 months later the for rural areas of well suitable WiMAX in sight”, sums up Lady.
