100 megabits per second to a mobile device on the move

September 7, 2005
That got your attention? Well New Scientist.com has an interesting insight into where mobile data speeds are heading too. Whilst I don’t think this will be a 4G type standard we will see these speeds in commercial reality within 10 years.
 
NTT DoCoMo is currently experimenting with prototype phones that are able to view 32 high definition video streams whilst traveling at 20 km/h. The technology they are playing with is called Variable-Spreading-Factor Spread Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (VSF-Spread-OFDM). Even the acronym is taking things to new levels.
 
Basically this technology is using multiple radio frequencies to send the same data stream.
 
The data speeds achieved in the testing are 100 megabits per second moving and 1 gigabits per second stationary.
 
That’s a lot of bits in anyone’s language……
 
Thanks to David Martin for the pointer
