i need to be able to use 3g network in crowded places when the cell tower is under heavy traffic
so i thought maybe i can use a 3g router and place it in a distanced location so it will use a different cell tower to gain network from, and with an antenna boost the signal so we can connect
to the router from the crowded place
do you think something like that is possible?
What products should i use?
Do you have any other ideas that can solve my problem?+3 Other Responses
Triangulation accuracy in a rural, 3g network (verizon, cdma technology)... With a single tower and omnidirectional antenna?
How accurate is it... My guess is that in such an environment location information can be off by several miles?+2 Other Responses
Private Lte Networks
We would like to understand the pricing structure and commercial model of providers/ integrators of small private lte networks (e.G. Built for mining companies, coverage in agricultural setting, enterprises, public safety use cases, etc.) in more detail.
-we need to understand the pricing of suppliers of private lte networks towards their end users: a. One-off installation fee, b. Monthly/ yearly subscription fees per network or/ and per device, c. Duration of contracts, etc.
-we need to understand the cost structure of the providers/ integrators of small private lte networks better – in particular what % the costs for the epc (evolved packet core) and ims (ip multimedia subsystem) play in the total cost structure.
This will an hour paid consultation. Please provide your feedback for the following.
1. Have you ever purchased or sold private lte networks?
2. Do you know the cost/ pricing structure of private lte networks?

Ltcc Aip - Integrated Device Manufacturer
Our firm requires multiple experts to share their insights on low temperature cured ceramic (ltcc) antenna in package (aip) modules for sub 6 gigahertz and mmwave communications for 5g networks. Both small cell and customer premises equipment (cpe).
We would like to have a better understanding of the cost structure for both ltcc and other n.I.K materials such as ptfe(pcb). Ideally, experts from integrated device manufacturers, those that design, create, and sell integrated circuits and have knowledge of both ltcc material and rf packaging design.
This would be for a 1-hour paid phone consultation.
To demonstrate your relevance in this space, please consider answering the questions below.
1. Have you worked in an organization that has specified or selected mmwave rf modules for telecom and in what capacity (ex. Project lead, business leader, manufacturing, designer, product development)?
2. Have you been involved specifying system or device operating requirements related to specific material choices for device construction? Was it on rf components or rf front end devices?
3. Would you be able to share your insights on the following discussion points? Kindly indicate yes/no or a few brief statements.
3a. How do fem makers determine costs, benefits, and value tradeoffs of using ceramic materials versus non-ceramic materials to a telecom hardware manufacturer or designer?
3b. How does the osat play in the value chain in this regard?
3c. Are you familiar with how the design hierarchy works between ic, package, and system design decisions? Is the ic design set first and then a packaging solution made to support the ic, or is the packaging design set and the chip set made to fit within the packaging design rules, or are holistic system designed and individual packaging and ic design rules balanced in the decision process?
3d. Would you be able to discuss the global capacity for making telecom based rf devices? How much expansion of the manufacturing and assembly/test capacity do you envision is needed to meet future 5g demand, for what applications, by whom?
3e. What do you see as the most critical success factors for ltcc fabricators to push this technology to be adopted for broader 5g applications?
3f. When competing with organic laminates for fem or antenna solutions, will you be able to provide an overview of how incremental value is determined (performance, durability, cost of ownership, etc.) and how much of a premium will the user be willing to pay for ltcc benefits?
3g. When do you see the version 1 design locked for the first mmwave rf devices (sip, aip, rffe + antenna network, pamid, or femid)? When do you see the inflection point of production volume or when you see the manufacturing ramp-up mmwave rffe devices? Will it be the first version devices or on a subsequent redesign (v2, v3, v4, ….)?
