National ICT Australia (NICTA) and NEC Australia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the development of a collaborative research program focusing on super 3G and 4G mobile wireless technology.
NICTA and NEC Australia will explore a series of research projects for the communications industry, particularly in the optical networking and interference cancellation arenas.
Projected areas in which 4G technologies will improve on current 3G technology include faster data rates; larger coverage per cell; low cost terminals; reduced network deployment costs; and reduced operating costs. With 4G, it will be possible to achieve high speed internet access to the mobile.
4th Generation mobile communications is an emerging market and is expected to reach $19.9 billion by 2011.
