SAN FRANCISCO--As interest grows in the wearables space, the current leaders in the market remain largely divided on how the segment will progress and where it is headed. However, most agree that the wearables space is poised to bloom.
It is vital that the European development community--from silicon design to software applications--work to benefit from making, using, optimizing and commercializing 4G LTE here at home. Thankfully, and most importantly, market growth potential for mobile and wirelessly connected devices and services is substantial and certain. However, we can't be effective in developing 5G or becoming leaders in providing it to the world if we are not even on the pace in 4G.
Alcatel-Lucent is on the verge of winning a contract from a domestic French operator that would see the struggling manufacturer provide small cells for improved mobile coverage in France, Reuters has reported.

Qualcomm is now a member of three competition bodies that are pushing wireless charging solutions. The company hopes that by having a foot in the three camps it can harmonize the different standards into a single one.
Executives from wireless carriers have repeatedly said over the last few years that the connected car represents a massive new opportunity. AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson has been particularly vocal about the possibilities: "The way we think about the car is that it's just a big smartphone on wheels," Stephenson said earlier this year at Mobile World Congress. "The connected car will become just as routine as people carrying a smartphone."
AT&T plans to use the 700 MHz Lower D and E Block licenses it acquired in 2011 from Qualcomm for an LTE Broadcast service, according to AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson.
LTE Broadcast was much in conversation at this year's broadcasting convension, IBC. So far Verizon Wireless and Telstra have publicly committed to the technology to varying degrees, and some in the industry are saying that the technology has more chance of succeeding where others failed.
AT&T worked with Qualcomm and its network vendor partners to implement a 700 MHz interoperability solution that will allow the carrier to support Band Class 12 devices, according to a senior AT&T executive.
Qualcomm is making a new M2M play via a low-power, single-chip Wi-Fi platform aimed at major home appliances and consumer electronics. The chip vendor has already partnered with Chinese appliance maker Haeir on a washer/dryer combo and an air conditioner unit, both of which are on display at the IFA event in Berlin.
