Upgrading your enterprise network infrastructure is the best way to keep up with an ever-changing technology landscape. Based on time-tested Cannon Group processes, here are a few best practices for planning a network upgrade...
Last week, Comcast confirmed plans to launch a mobile service by mid-2017 using Verizon Wireless's expansive nationwide network. Here's what this Comcast/Verizon collaboration could mean for you and the U.S. wireless industry.
So what’s the deal with 5G? The industry is likely queuing up this new technology as a proactive solution for the wireless problems of the future. Frankly, it’s tough to predict how 5G could change the wireless environment on any scale—but we can make some educated predictions.
When making voice calls, users’ phones can utilize a nearby WiFi network instead of using their carrier's network connection. This can bypass the issue of weak carrier coverage in certain areas where users may be unable to get an adequate signal.
The U.S. carrier race for best 4G LTE coverage continues. Last week, AT&T proclaimed itself the king of LTE in North America, with about 355 million people covered under its 4G LTE – more than any other carrier. Meanwhile, despite this recognition, Verizon continues to outperform its competitors with the best overall network performance...
According to recent data, there were 755 million total LTE connections globally at the end of Q2 2015. More specifically, North America increased its 4G connection base by 49 percent in the past year to reach 197 million.
According to a survey of more than 500 consumers around the world, the telecom industry ranks as the second worst industry for customer service worldwide. One of the best methods for improving this poor rating, experts say, is to improve analytics and real-time quality of experience monitoring.
Carrier spending on WiFi equipment grew 23 percent to $336 million globally throughout 2014. And in 2015, experts predict that worldwide WiFi spending will escalate an additional 88 percent, strengthening networks and allowing for enhanced performance and a better user experience.
It’s no secret that with more technology comes less privacy, but most of us are still uneasy about the idea of companies spying on our online activity. Now, it looks like a new service by AT&T could begin a movement to protect consumer privacy -- for a price.
Verizon is focusing on its wireless growth, East Coast landlines, and its FiOS business by consolidating its wireless and wireline networks. As of last week, Verizon announced 2 deals totaling $15.6 billion with Frontier Communications and American Tower Corp.
The enterprise industry has seen immense change within the past several years, and as the new year looms ahead, experts say that 2015 will be no exception. Based on recent trends, expect increases in everything from cyberattacks to mobile investments in 2015...
Throughout the year, carriers have worked to improve their offerings, including better WiFi performance and expanded LTE coverage. These improvements – and others on the horizon – paint a bright future for network performance in 2015.
Earlier this year, regulators discovered that major U.S. carriers have allegedly been abusing practices like throttling -- slowing down data flowing from a mobile network. Until the full extent of this practice is known across the industry, experts highlight ways to avoid throttling.
In the wake of President Obama's speech and the FCC's impending decision, we explore -- and rule out -- possible outcomes of the net neutrality debate, including recent claims by Internet service providers.
President Obama himself joined the net neutrality debate earlier this week, supporting net neutrality advocates by calling for the FCC to “implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality.”
Carrier network growth must accommodate rising data usage across the industry -- Continuing its recent “UnCarrier” theme to set itself apart from competitors, T-Mobile is making headlines again with its Q3 earnings.
Following the announcement that T-Mobile will offer free in-home WiFi equipment to subscribers as part of its UnCarrier 7.0 launch, market leaders AT&T and Verizon have announced that they will follow suit – next year.
An infographic comparing U.S. carriers’ 2G/3G, 3G+ and LTE network coverage (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon). Based on speed tests of working 4G LTE signals and networks across the U.S., we can get a good view of 4G connectivity.
As more users utilize 4G LTE capabilities, the overall quality of networks around the world is rapidly improving. But in terms of good coverage and fast speeds, LTE still has a long way to go to achieve its full potential.
When it comes to wireless, speed is everyone’s number one priority -- but there’s more to this lightning-fast technology than just speed. Wireless network latency plays a considerable role in maintaining the speed of LTE and other high-speed wireless technologies.
These diagrams provide us with a great view of 4G connectivity in areas that haven't yet been officially announced by carriers -- and it's also a great visualization that allows us to get a concrete and tangible look at the increasing overall proliferation of LTE.
