AST SpaceMobile seeks to bring high-speed broadband to everywhere at cost effective pricing. AST SpaceMobile, Inc. (NAS:ASTS) is a satellite design and manufacturing company that plans to create a mobile broadband network in space through its SpaceMobile service. SpaceMobile intends to offer global cell service levels from 2G to 5G, to anywhere on the globe, with no additional equipment requirements for smart phone users. While there is substantial risk, if SpaceMobile is successful in its plan and if its technology becomes widely used, then it could represent a lucrative future revenue potential for the company. AST SpaceMobile stock has pulled back some in recent days, as has some other space stocks. I see AST SpaceMobile as a good speculative buy at these levels, as they are closer to the lows of the year and that may provide more room for upside potential.
Ofcom is asking for views on how to maximise the long-term value of the Terahertz (THz) spectrum, extremely high frequencies that could provide huge bandwidth for applications of the future and enable 6G networks. The Terahertz band sits at the very top of the spectrum range between 100GHz and 3THz...
NTT DOCOMO and NEC have succeeded in interoperability testing for 5G standalone (SA) using a 5G base station baseband unit (5G CU/DU) conforming to O-RAN open interface specifications and radio units (RUs) of different vendors. The multi-vendor interoperability test used a software upgrade to introduce SA capability to NEC's 5G...

Dejero launches EnGo 265 mobile transmitter to provide next-level reliability for newsgathering and live broadcasts
Lower latency, enhanced security and new ‘GateWay mode’ deliver unmatched wireless connectivity in the field. Waterloo, Ontario, December 2, 2022 — Dejero is launching its new EnGo 265 mobile transmitter for news teams and live events broadcasters that need resilient connectivity to quickly go live from any location. Reliable, simple to use, and built tough for field use, EnGo 265 will replace the industry-renowned EnGo 260 and introduce new features targeting the broadcast and media market. The new model bolsters security and provides even lower latency than the EnGo 260 at just 0.5 seconds over bonded cellular connections. It also features a new ‘GateWay mode’ for wireless broadband internet connectivity and a modified backpack with a wired remote.
In 2022, 5G connection numbers will be limited by consumer upgrades to 5G handsets rather than just 5G network deployments, with chipset shortages worsening this limitation, according to Analysys Mason’s annual industry predictions on the major trends it expects to make an impact over the next 12 months. The predictions...
WATERLOO, ONTARIO—Dejero has introduced the EnGo 265 mobile transmitter for news teams and live events broadcasters. It replaces the company’s EnGo 260 with new features targeting the broadcast and media market, bolstering security and providing even lower latency than the EnGo 260 at just 0.5 seconds over bonded cellular connections. It also features a new “GateWay mode” for wireless broadband internet connectivity and a modified backpack with a wired remote.
Improving the ability for news crews and live broadcasters to quickly go live from any location, Dejero has launched the new Engo 265 mobile transmitter. The device replaces its predecessor, the EnGo 260, and offers greater levels of security in addition to lower latency, at 0.5s over bonded cellular connections.
NTT DOCOMO and NEC have successfully tested a 5G standalone (SA) network using a base station conforming to O-RAN specifications in a multi-vendor configuration. A software upgrade to NEC’s 5G base station baseband unit operating on DOCOMO’s commercial network transitioned it from a non-standalone system into a standalone using the same hardware.
Ericsson has been producing its Mobility Report for ten years, so this time the firm has taken a look back at the development of mobile electronics and data services in that period. Amazingly, mobile networks are carrying 300 times the data they did in 2011. You can download the full...
Dejero has announced its new EnGo 265 Mobile Transmitter that is being targeted squarely at news teams and live event broadcasters. The EnGo 265 was built to specifically replace the EnGo 260. The new model bolsters security and provides even lower latency than the EnGo 260. Dejero claims the latency is as low as 0.5 seconds over bonded cellular connections. It also features a new ‘GateWay mode’ for wireless broadband internet connectivity and a modified backpack with a wired remote.
At the yearly Snapdragon Summit, we’ve come to expect news regarding Qualcomm’s upcoming mobile platforms that will be powering soon-to-be-released flagship mobile devices, and this year was no exception; we now have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform to anticipate. Building on the success of the Snapdragon 888+ 5G system on chip, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is touted as able to deliver even faster 5G speeds, create more impressive photographs and video, take AI experiences to new levels, and yes, it will also provide more visually stimulating and immersive gaming experiences.
Ericsson global insights reveal an almost 300-fold increase in mobile data traffic since 2011 – the year in which Ericsson Mobility Report was first published. The findings, based on current and historical network data, are included in the special ten-year edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report November 2021. The report looks back at some of the key trends and events that have shaped the last decade, as well as revealing the latest forecasts toward 2027.
The National Park System comprises 63 national parks and over 350 national park sites that stretch over more than 84 million acres. Dotting across all states and U.S. territories, the sites range from large, well-known parks like the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone to historically significant places, like the birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr. Whether exploring history or sight-seeing, our national parks provide a wonderland of recreation and education. When visitors saunter along a national park pathway, they inevitably bring along their smartphones to take pictures and record their adventures. How would anyone believe you were there if you didn’t post it on Instragram? Of course, it’s not just about the “pics or it didn’t happen.” You’d need good service if there is an emergency, to make further plans, or to check in with your homebase. You may also want to spend a few days at a park and work remotely or get other digital comforts you’re used to. For that, you’d need reliable and strong mobile service. So before you set off on your journey through a national park, be sure it has the necessary mobile service. (Want to travel to a city and be assured of good broadband? See large cities with the best and most reliable internet access.) To find the 10 national parks with the best mobile service and the 10 with the worst, 24/7 Tempo reviewed Speedtest’s feature, “Choose Your National Park Adventure: The Best Places to Work Remotely or Digitally Disconnect.” Speedtest analyzed mobile services at U.S. national parks for median download and upload speeds as well as 4G and 5G availability. Missouri’s Gateway Arch provides the best mobile service among national parks. It offers 5G availability and near 100% 4G availability. Median download speed is 84.6 mbps (megabytes per second), and median upload is 31.1 mbps. This is likely not surprising considering the park is in a major metro area, St. Louis. Many parks near urban areas have better mobile services. The park with the poorest service is Sequoia Park in California, where 4G availability is a scant 4%, with no 5G availability. Both median download and upload speed crawl at 1.4 mbps. (Based on size, here are the largest and smallest national parks.) Whatever the mobile service at any national park, simply being able to enjoy the wonders around us is worth the trip and perhaps hassle of poor service.

A study from global technology intelligence firm ABI Research has provided more evidence that broadband operators are reaching for the stars over the next few years. It calculates that the serviceable addressable market (SAM) for global satellite broadband over geostationary (GEO), medium earth orbit (MEO) and low earth orbit (LEO) satellites will be 330 million premises, equivalent to 1.3 billion household members, in 2026.
