There’s always a lot of technology to see at the CTIA’s annual wireless show. This year will be no different when the show opens April 1 in Las Vegas.
Sure to draw crowds at the show will be the HSPA Mobile Broadband Pavilion, a showcase of wireless broadband services and applications from 19 companies put together by the trade association 3G Americas. The Pavilion will focus on focus on HSPA (high-speed packet access) but also will show how the 4G technology Long Term Evolution (LTE) fits into future network schemes.
3G Americas says the pavilion will give visitors real-life scenarios and allow them to interact with products and applications that are available today. Showcased will be many of the 400 HSDPA devices on the market plus viewer-selected videos and presentations covering technology tutorials and operator success stories worldwide.
Among the services on display will be an HSPA femtocell integrated with a home IP-TV experience on a mobile device and a PC. Other applications include file download and upload, laptop Internet browsing, streaming video, IP meetings and group calls. There also will be a demo of live video-sharing between a mobile device and a PC.
