RTT Technology Topics - 2005

We help companies and organisations maximise returns from existing technology and engineering investment.

RTT Technology Topics

Every month we produce a technology topic that reflects current RTT research. These are sent to an elective list of engineering, marketing and business team leaders.
There are over 120 Topics archived on this site starting from August 1998.
The archive provides a free resource for researchers in the industry wishing to use past experience to validate technology, engineering, market and business decisions.

If you would like future Technology Topics sent to you
automatically each month then please join our PUSH LIST

2005 Title Synopsis
December Smart super phones Super phones have advanced audio and image capture capabilities that are equal to or better than human audio and video processing systems, have equivalent memory resources but significantly better memory retrieval than human memory systems, a better sense of direction than most humans and an enhanced ability to sense temperature, gravitational forces and electromagnetic fields.
November Do we need Super 3G? The discontinuities implicit in the present standards making process and some possible remedies.
October Matrix Maths in Mobiles Maths in Mobile Phones(2) Matrix based Hadamard-Rademacher-Walsh Transforms in cellular phones
September Maths in Mobile Phones(1) The role of the Fourier transform in delivering technology and business value
August WiFi Voice and Video The capacity, coverage and quality issues implicit in WiFi voice and (longer-term) IP voice and video service provision.
July Convergence - Costs and margins Developing business plans that scale across wireless/wireline/copper/optical access however depends on being able to develop cost models that deliver accurate 'cost of delivery' metrics that can be used to validate pricing policy. This in turn requires an understanding of some of the engineering issues involved
June Broadcast Over Cellular (BOC) Deployment Digital broadcast receiver integration in cellular handsets
May Adaptive Systems Adaptation is a technique increasingly applied at all points in the end to end channel to improve power utilization efficiency. As such, it is a common denominator in 3G and 4G systems.
April Camcorders and their impact on Camera Phone Design How digital camcorder performance expectations are changing and the related impact on camera phone form factor and functionality.
March Digital cameras and their impact on Camera Phone Design How camera (rather than camera phone) performance expectations are changing, how this impacts camera phone hardware, camera phone software and camera phone network hardware and software design
February Camera Phone Design The compromises implicit in low cost camera phones ,how correction algorithms can be applied to help produce an acceptable user experience
January Device driven value Key enabling technologies that have generated industry value in the past, technologies that will likely deliver value in the future.
