2.5G and 3G Wireless Success Assured by New Mobile Decision Support Applications and Services According to Alexander Resources


DALLAS, Texas, August 28 -- Although great uncertainty surrounds investments in, and the viability of, new 2.5G and 3G wireless networks, Alexander Resources, a leading research, consulting and education firm specializing in wireless communications, has determined that new Mobile Decision Support (MDS) application and service offerings will fill real customer needs and will be key to insuring the success of these networks.

MDS is a new term developed by Alexander Resources for a unique set of services and applications that provide instant access to information in support of real time business and personal activities. Specifically, MDS enables individuals who are mobile or cannot access desktop computing resources to make the best decisions about destination, transit, purchases, shopping, and entertainment choices. In addition, businesses will use MDS both internally and in client facing applications to support transaction and operational decisions.

Based on five years of research in 2.5G & 3G services, Alexander Resources determined that MDS applications and services will generate the greatest amount of non-voice revenue for mobile carriers and usage by subscribers over the next three to five years. This revenue and usage will provide important justification for the mobile carrier's investments in, and deployments of, 2.5G and 3G networks. Other non-MDS services and applications, such as gaming, mobile commerce, and entertainment will produce lower revenue and usage but still represent significant opportunities for carriers.

MDS applications and services utilize digital text, graphical and image technologies in a variety of formats. They are designed primarily for use with smartphones (integrated PDA and mobile phone).

AR will examine MDS at the "2.5G and 3G Wireless 2002: Putting the Pieces Together" seminar. The seminar will be held in Dallas, TX on Sept. 9 & 10, 2002, in Washington, DC on Oct. 28 & 29, 2002 and in Phoenix, AZ on Dec. 9 & 10, 2002.
