Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) - Field Trials
Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) place stringent performance requirements on Data Rate (Uplink/Downlink) and Latency (Round Trip). These key metrics must be measured from the user's perspective, over differing technologies, across many different propagation conditions, mobility scenarios and loading conditions.
Call statistics are also key indicators of performance from the user's perspective. This is especially important when characterizing the behavior of wireless networks as they evolve into all IP based systems. Different implementations for supporting voice over an IP network (VoLTE, VoLGA, CSFB) will yield differing results.
See how Tropper Technologies' tools can help compare and contrast competing standards
and uncover the performance bounds of these evolving systems.

Bryan Tropper, Chapter Chairman of the LI Section of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, is a Technical Expert in the wireless field. Bryan contributes to both the development of complex communication, EW and GPS navigation systems as well as software development for analysis and simulation. Bryan has expertise across the entire spectrum of technologies inherent in the wireless link, both commercial as well as military. Previous work through Tropper Technologies has included consulting for many of the best know companies in the commercial domain including Qualcomm, Motorola, and Lucent as well as work at DoD contracting entities ITT Corporation and BAE Systems.
As a seasoned specialist in the wireless field with over 25 years of hands on experience, Bryan’s expertise is helping to "bring laboratory technology into the marketplace". He accomplishes this via a mixture of deep technical domain expertise coupled with years of engineering management experience. Bryan is certified in Earned Value Measurement techniques, trained in SEI CMMI guidelines as they apply to ISO 9000 Development and trained in the use of FAGAN processes for quality inspections. This permits Bryan to achieve an optimal balance between project scope, schedule and budget.
Bryan has won awards for leading the development of a Ku Antenna Subsystem (including the aperture, gimbaled positioner and transmit/receive signal paths) for the US Army, contributing to the development of a small GPS Anti Jam antenna for the GPS JPO, and is a two time IEEE USA award recipient. His extensive knowledge of GPS UE technologies and testing methodologies has been used both on the commercial side as well as on the military side. In the commercial cellular domain, Tropper Technologies has used Bryan’s expertise to develop and deploy tools that are considered the “benchmark” in certain areas.
Tropper Technologies provides expert program management to a variety of Forums and Associations within the Wireless Industry. For example, Tropper Technologies has helped to
guide the Software Defined Radio Forum through several key areas of growth.
In a similar fashion, as Chapter Chairman of the LI Society of the IEEE Antennas & Propagation Society, Bryan Tropper helps to serve technical and business professionals in the microwave and communications industry. Of note, Bryan has won several awards from the IEEE USA for efforts
in this area.
There are differing definitions of “4G Technology”.
In October 2010, the ITU released the “ITU definition of 4G Technology”. Click here to download the ITU IMT – Advanced document (external link -opens in new window).
