Wireless industry

This is your world

The wireless industry isn’t what it was. It’s bigger, more complex and more important than ever. And you are making it happen.

Whether you are a service provider, a vendor, an industry association or a regulator, you are now part of an industry that has exceeded all expectations and is still growing. The transformation that brought 3G and 4G will soon be put in the shade by 5G.

How should you manage the complexities and challenges of a wireless world you are helping to create?

The new landscape

 

Voice, text — even data — are no longer the only services. Consumers are no longer the only market. Human beings are not the only customers.

The old certainties have gone. The new wireless landscape includes 5G, IoT virtualization, hybrid networks, mmWave — even network slicing. It promises much but is still developing.

Mobile operators, in turn, are under more pressure than ever. How can spectrum be acquired? How will it be allocated? What could it be used for and how? Will it be shared? How will it perform and are user devices available to support it? How will usage be regulated? How will demand be met? Who will pay? Who will try to compete for business?

As everyone and everything becomes connected, you need independent advice, information and support to build a strategy — for your customers, for your network and for your business.

That’s where we come in. From regulation to engineering, from statistical and economic modeling to spectrum acquisition, from marketing to mobile handsets — our team members really have seen wireless from every angle. And we can put that vast range of scientific and strategic expertise to work for you.

Building for a changing world

How should you deploy and manage products for a developing technology? Where is the market going? How can you profitably partner with mobile network operators? How do standards and certification affect you? What opportunities will carrier-grade Wi-Fi, HetNets, 5G and IoT bring? What do consumers, operators, businesses and government want and how can you offer it?

New trends and still-developing technologies are driving the breakneck pace of wireless change. Where can you find the independent, unbiased expertise that will help you to make sense of the market development and its trends, build business models and design compelling products and services for this changing world?

Real Wireless has many decades of wireless experience in its team: real experience with all players in all areas of wireless provision — from R&D and product development to business planning, marketing and network rollout. That expertise is driving an informed, independent offering that will help vendors identify business opportunities, build products, develop services and find the right partnerships.

We have worked with companies in every field — hardware, software and services — on portfolio assessment, competitive challenges, the impacts of regulatory and technological change and long-term market projections. Our expertise and experience can help you deliver real — and lasting — results.

Make your voice heard

Wireless is making new industries possible: new hardware, new services, new business models that can build on the global reach of wireless itself. And those new industries are being supported by new forums and associations keen to make their case — to their members and the wider world.

Real Wireless has been commissioned by a number of industry associations to supply reports, analyses and business cases. Small Cell Forum, GSMA, UK Space Agency, techUK and UK Spectrum Policy Forum have all asked us to use our expertise to analyse their markets and the opportunities they can bring.

Real Wireless can offer expertise in all aspects of the wireless industry. It can supply comprehensive analyses covering benefits, costs, new markets and technology evolution. Our independent, informed analysis is always insightful and readable to help an industry association to bring a comprehensive message to the widest possible audience — from operators and vendors to the enterprise and the end user.

If you have something to say — to members as well as to the wider world — we can make your voice heard.

Recommendations for the real world

 

Regulatory decision-making doesn't happen in a vacuum. Multiple parties have an urgent interest in how wireless policy is developed and applied. Regulators need to be able to demonstrate in-depth research, a clear understanding and a compelling rationale for their decisions. This applies more than ever with the imminent arrival of 5G. Spectrum policy is a major concern of operators, vendors and end users. Capacity needs to meet demand. Competition, innovation and service expansion all need to be promoted. Interference, spectrum sharing, rural coverage and much more are at the centre of policy decisions shaping an industry that will transform the lives of millions of citizens in countries across the world.

Understanding and applying technology are the main challenges for wireless telecommunications policy. Our experts have done both. We have carried out valuable technical and advisory work on everything from interference modelling, demand forecasting and standards comparison to modelling the cost impact of spectrum obligations, spectrum valuation, auction design, spectrum allocation, deployment and roaming.

More than ever regulatory authorities need independent advice and support to develop a strategy that is built to last. Ours is a technology-agnostic, expert team that can make recommendations for real-world requirements.

You need answers

 

5G will affect all aspects of our life and industies: consumers and businesses, industries and governments, cars and power supply, even home appliances and refuse collection.

At least that’s the idea. But how will the mobile industry and the technology come together to make 5G happen? What does 5G mean for the densely populated and rural areas? How does it support indoor coverage? Which spectrum band – from sub-1GHz to mmWave – will be used for what type of applications?

Today operators are starting to trial 5G, possible applications are being assessed and advance rollouts are being planned. But spectrum allocation, coverage, capacity, services and the response of the mass market are still uncertain.

We began studying 5G long before it was first trialled, analysing concepts, reporting on potential, studying its socio-economic impact, offering insights on spectrum allocation, infrastructure investment, service creation, network monetization, regulation, and, of course, markets.

Whether you’re an operator, a vendor, an end user, or one of many potential industries that could be affected, when and how 5G will happen and what return it will offer on any investment are urgent questions you will soon want answers to.

Ask Real Wireless. We have helped to build today’s wireless world. We are already helping to shape tomorrow’s. We can help you to understand what 5G could — and should — offer you.

Here — but not here

IoT — the Internet of Things — already exists. Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication has been around for more than 15 years using — for example — the good old GSM modems. But has anyone noticed? Every year the IoT is supposedly going to fulfil its extraordinary promise: the promise of billions of connected items promoting efficiencies, supplying data and in turn creating new industries. IoT is also being promoted as an integral part of the 5G future, part of a next generation technology that will transform wireless across the world.

But competing standards, indecision over spectrum, battery-power-related limitations on remote device lifetimes, limitations and the lack of long-term, agreed strategy are holding back the genuinely staggering potential of IoT.

Everyone could benefit from the economies of scale of an IoT based on harmonised spectrum and standards — but will that happen? And how can industry, government, service providers and technology suppliers make their voice heard?

Our opinions are sought and respected throughout the wireless industry and the wider world it affects. We explain, analyse and influence. Real Wireless is uniquely placed to advise, assess and comment on what IoT can do, should do — and must be able to do.
