Applications & Services Exploration for the Broadband Mobile Systems

Bao-Shuh Lin, Director
Microelectronics and Information Systems Research Center (MIRC)
National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan


The system characteristics of future broadband mobile systems are high throughput (data rate), low latency (delay), high mobility (km/hr), and high capacity. The current recognized broadband mobile systems should meet the requirements specified by IMT-Advanced. Those broadband mobile systems include 3GPP-LTE/LTE-advanced and IEEE-802.16e/802.16m (Mobile WiMAX 1.0/Mobile WiMAX 2.0). In the mean time, the smart phones with powerful embedded CPU/GPU, high-resolution digital camera, GPS, various sensors and digital compass are becoming popular. With the combination of the deployment of broadband mobile systems and the usage of smart mobile phones, there are many potential appealing applications & services can be creating. In this talk, we will explore several software intensive applications and services include mobile augmented reality, mobile healthcare, and high speed rail.
