See the press
release about this meeting.
The 3GPP family
of technologies that include GSM, EDGE, UMTS and HSPA (High Speed
Packet Access), has established a dominant position in the global
wireless industry. To accommodate market growth, increasing bandwidth
needs, competitive pressures, and available technology evolution, there
are a significant number of planned enhancements, including Evolved
EDGE, HSPA+, LTE (Long Term Evolution) and eventually LTE Advanced.
The meeting will
address questions such as:
- What are the most
important factors for continued rapid growth of mobile broadband?
- What is the current
of HSPA technology?
- What are the capabilities
of the technology and how will they evolve?
- What range of devices are
incorporating HSPA/HSPA+ technology.
- What are the different
ways that operators can deploy HSPA+?
- What are the latest
trends and technologies for embedded laptop operation?
- When and how will LTE be
deployed and what is expected subscriber growth?
- How will core networks
evolve to support flatter architectures and all IP networks?
- How might capacity or
spectrum constraints affect applications and adoption?
- What are the applications
that will use new mobile broadband networks?
- What application
architectures are best suited for mobile broadband networks?
that meeting 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 meetings allow informal networking during breaks where
attendees can exchange important information.

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 meeting to allow for copying to the members area of the PCCA Web
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 meeting, 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.
