What TMN needs: News and views on new radio interface developments: from massive MIMO, full duplex, new waveforms.

A mobile network or a video distribution network: This feature will riff the idea that future mobile networks are really about building networks for video distribution. The rest of the traffic profile can take a back seat. So how to build it? Better hope LTE is fit for purpose.

What TMN needs: Agreement or disagreement with the proposition and views on the key enabling technologies, including cloud based (virtualisation) management, high capacity platforms, broadcast, edge caching and so on.

Love of satellites: Companies cannot resist the idea of a global mobile network. Feature will trace the history of low earth orbit global mobile satellite projects. Clearly references recently reported Google ambitions.

What TMN needs: Satellite comms aficionados with long memories, anyone who thinks Google could be on to something, and why.
