Mobile Networks: 3G with EUL/HSUPA in Service

Thursday, October 2, 2008

Like ADSL the 3G data network is asymmetrical. The download link is considerably greater than the up-link. Qrodo is broadcasting video streams and ergo mostly interested in the up-link. We have broadcasted events using Turbo 3G services where the uplink were merely 150 kbit/s. However, in reality we require a 3G network with Enhanced Uplink (EUL) also refered to as High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA), they deliver up to 1.4 Mbit/s. The 3G operators often brand it as Mobile Broadband Pro, or 3G Turbo Plus and it is availible in many big cities around the globe, both metered and unlimited. The monthly fee for unlimited services is around €30-40/month. Check if your operator is on the list, then look at the coverage for your area, and finally run a broadband test at the venue to make sure you are ready for a successful event.

Mobile Broadband

Wednesday, October 1, 2008

Mobile broadband providers Teliasonera, 3, Orange, Telefonica, Telecom Italia, T-Mobile and Vodafone; computer companies  Asus, Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba and Microsoft; mobil chip gigants Qualcomm and Ericsson has joined forces in branding “Mobile Broadband Service Mark”.

Omnipresent wireless broadband is a key catalyst for Qrodo expansion. Events like bouldering, skiing, motor hillclimbing or anything in rural areas can easily be lifecasted via qrodo as long as a resonable reliable 150-200 Kbit/s up-link is established. According to the telco organisation GSMA there are today more than 55 milion subscribers to mobile broadband in 91 countries. The growth rate is 4 milion subscribers a month.
