I’ve been super busy lately, but I’ve been meaning to delve into this announcement more deeply. Unfortunately there’s not really a lot of information out there other than a PDF file available (after the break.) Basically this DIDO proposal is for wireless clients to connect to wireless access points, but with a customized waveform, computed at a datacenter, designed to maximize throughput in a given area. This boils down to an interference mitigation strategy but I’m not sure that this is the way that Rearden Labs would like for you to think of their ultimate technology. To me, I also don’t believe this has been fully thought through, but there is a portion of the idea that is interesting to me. This interesting part is where a data center manages the waveforms. It’s not practical but interesting. 

This is nitpicky but the author of the paper clearly either doesn’t understand wireless technologies with the numerous incorrect references or doesn’t care to engage anyone that knows anything and is only focused on selling. Anyway I do applaud the out of the box thinking.

VoLTE

Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is the next big thing. In fact, in 24 months, virtually all LTE enabled smart phones will support it. Curious?

Small Cells

Small Cells, previously known as 'femto' or 'pico' cells are possibly a savior to network operators. They offer capacity and coverage to the end user and are inexpensive for the network operator. Why aren't they everywhere?
