Long Term Evolution, a new mobile telecommunications standard, is poised to revolutionize mobile Internet.
High transmission rates will soon be possible on mobile devices. For this purpose Fraunhofer researchers at HHI Berlin developed the cross-layer design SVC over LTE — a coding method that offers HD films in real-time in the appropriate format for cell phones or netbooks.
The experts are presenting their solution in a live demonstration at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Clumsy page layouts, slow page load times of podcasts and videos: Today’s mobile surfing on the Internet can be really a hassle. The available bandwidths on mobile phone networks vary widely, due to the number and mobility of the users, the location within the mobile network cell, or the capacity of the terminal. Particularly in bandwidth-intensive services, like video streaming, transmissions are frequently subject to disconnections, gaps or interruptions.
The mobile telecommunications standard of tomorrow — Long Term Evolution, or LTE for short — will change everything. It has a higher performance capacity than UMTS, and reaches download speeds being comparable to landline-based DSL broadband network. Not only e-mails and Internet traffic, particularly videos and mobile television benefit from LTE as the breakthrough for mobile Internet technology.
