Mobile & Digital Media SIG:



  • Greetings SVForum members and invited guests:

    In 2014 we have a new strategy and approach to our group.  One of our macro strategic points is to be differentiated from all other community meeting in Silicon Valley.  One of our micro approaches is to have take-away documentation of the actual meeting, distributed to everyone in the group.  We will have new announcements for the next several meetings, please monitor and join us as we ‘strive to refine” a 360 approach to making our group relevant to you in the mobile/wireless industry.

    Please join us on Wednesday March 12 for an exciting joint SVForum > Mobile & Digital Media Group event, with 3 to 4 speakers on the topic of 4G as a Platform.

    Topic:  Paradigm; 4G as a Platform

    Description:   Presenting… 4G value-chain technology and service sector companies the significance of a 4G; ALL IP BROADBAND wireless network. 

    We are in a new era of wired and wireless communications and we need to psychologically and technologically develop for this era.  Hence the title of our event “4G as a Platform.”  The FCC is listening on Net Neutrality, Zuckerberg’s MWC chat states Facebook/ is formally partnering with Mobile Network Operators (MNOs).  Also, it is known that WhatsApp app displaces SMS/Text messaging and newly offering voice communications.

    AT&T Foundry:  Learn about AT&Ts 4G ALL IP voice & data centric initiatives. 

    Qualcomm software services: will share their technology attributes about inter-LAN, MAN, WAN networks with seamless service to consumers. 

    Matrixx Software:  Real-Time billing API to enhance your relationships beyond App Stores.  Create revenue with these industries; MNOs, ISPs, Portals, etc.

    Research Firm:  An industry overview on transition to ALL IP services.
    Our group respects topic context, so we will have a research firm speaking on the 4G landscape that relates to our loyal audience, the silicon valley executives and developer community. 

    Pre-meeting let us share some upfront context with you; industry definitions and the FCC chairman’s latest quote.

    FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler Quote:  (January 30 2104)
    "Our communications networks are transitioning to IP-networks” "The move from the circuit-switched networks of Alexander Graham Bell to the new networks of the Internet Revolution is all around us -- with expanded deployment of fiber, with new forms of wireless, with bonded copper and coaxial cable. These transitions -- plural -- are a solid attributes because IP networks are more efficient, which can enable better products, lower prices, less tariffs and massive benefits for consumers."

    Four Mobile Service Protocol Definitions: 

    1) MNO:  Mobile Network Operator (or carrier)

    2) Paging:  Short Message Service SMS/ MultiMedia Message Service MMS [ ]

    3) TDM:  [ ]
    Time Division Multiplexing (dialing a telephone number invited in the late 1800’s)

    4) TCP/IP  [ ]
    4G 4th Generation Mobile Network Services
    One digital air interface transport protocol is called Long Term Evolution (LTE)
    - broadband mobile service
    - 100 percent TCP/IP or Internet Protocol

    In defining these protocols, we can differentiate the leveraging point of having one internet communications protocol with 4G.  To be specific, there is no need for the paging protocol of SMS and or the TDM protocol of dialing telephone numbers, TCP/IP can perform all functions.
