will examine network capacity versus
rapidly growing demand, and the role of optimized applications and
quality-of-service architectures. The CTIA, in comments to the
FCC, recently stated the industry needed another 800 MHz of spectrum,
would more than double the total amount of spectrum for the mobile
wireless industry. But it will take a long time before new spectrum
actually becomes available.
Cisco, mobile broadband growth is in excess of 100% per year.
There is more than enough spectrum and capacity to support a wide range
of applications, but not necessarily enough to address wireline
broadband trends. What should
operators, infrastructure vendors and application developers be doing
to address the projected shortfall between capacity and demand?
address the following types of questions:
- What capacity do mobile broadband
networks have relative to spectrum and relative to subscribers?
- What applications account for how much
- What is the role of optimization in
mobile broadband networks?
- What application architectures are the
most effective in controlling load?
- What tools should users have to better
manage their own usage?
- What network management options exist
to manage demand and how can they best be used?
- How effective is it to off-load onto
femto cells with respect to total spectrum usage?
- How can Wi-Fi off-loading be made more
- How can the QoS architecture in LTE be
used to manage traffic?
- How can video be managed to not
- What alternate subscriber plans can be
deployed to control demand?
that presenters and many of the attendees, are world leading
technologists on the subject material. We allocate sufficient time for
discussion that attendees can ask questions of greatest interest.
Moreover, the workshops allow informal networking during breaks where
attendees can exchange important information.

INFORMATION FOR PRESENTERS
information is for people presenting at this PCCA workshop:
are typically 30 minutes to 45 minutes long unless
is usually a 5 to 15 minute discussion following the presentation.
must provide their presentations (PDF or PPT) at least one week prior
to the workshop to allow for copying to the members area of the PCCA
site, as well as to allow detailed questions for discussion.
is a technical audience (e.g., engineering and program managers),
so please make the presentations technical. Emphasis should be on
industry and technology at large, versus selling your product (limit of
3 slides). Consider
items such as compatibility, technical alternatives, standardization, deployment
certification and adoption.
- Generally, a dynamic and attentive audience
of key industry stakeholders attend each workshop, representing a broad
spectrum of the mobile computing industry, including operators,
infrastructure vendors, device vendors, middleware providers and
- We will provide an LCD projector. Presenters
should plan on presenting from their own
computers. Presenters should use their own presentation templates.
- Since PCCA workshops are considered public meetings, please
not include any confidential or proprietary information.
