The Information and Communication Technology Authority (ICTA) will make available to the mobile phone companies, additional bands. New frequency blocks that are between 1710 and 1880 MHz will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis. They enable the deployment of Frequency Division Duplex (FDD), a technique where transmission and reception of data takes place simultaneously at different frequencies. Clearly, the ICTA hopes that operators implement the concept of 4G (fourth generation).
For the moment, 4G is a project in Mauritius. Moreover, the ICTA last week invited the operators to submit proposals no later than Friday, May 11, 2012. However, Mahanagar Telephone Mauritius Limited (MTML) which provides the wireless network to Chile and Mauritius Telecom (MT) which offers the Orange network, plan to implement the 4G. As to the date when these operators will launch this technology, nothing has stopped. At MTML it is 2013, whereas in MT, the launch will take place at the right time, taking into account several factors including the demand for this type of service."MT intends to contribute to this consultation exercise of ICTA. We will submit our views and will be decided later, "says one in MT.
In telecommunication, the 4G is the fourth generation standards for mobile telephony. She succeeds 3G. It enables mobile broadband or data transmissions at speeds exceeding 100 Mbps theoretical. But in practice they would be on the order of tens of Mbps, depending on the number of users since the bandwidth is shared between user terminals present in the same radio cell. The special feature of 4G is to stop providing switched mode. This means that telephone calls use voice over Internet Protocol (IP).
According to journalists who tested the 4G in Lyon, France, the constant flow peak in Download is over 90 Mbps and 60 Mbps upload. Reduced to a typical use of the network with traffic and a realistic number of connections, the actual flow rates will range from 40 Mbps Download and between 20 and 30 Mbps upload, or values ??that should exceed that of the current ADSL. Second surprise: the low latency in online games. Indeed, the time is 30 to 40 milliseconds between the time the player performs an action on his terminal and when it is passed on to the server of the game also the time of caching videos are extremely short.
