Living in a mobile world

All around us people are hunched over their smartphones and tablets watching and sending out streamed videos, tweets and texts, browsing the internet, gaming online, … Today’s subscribers generate more data than ever and expect a seamless, high-quality UX – no matter where they are. This trend will only grow as people become more familiar with and reliant upon next generation technologies and services like LTE (Long Term Evolution), the fastest-developing mobile system technology ever.

4G LTE everywhere

All around the world,4GLTE deployments are being ramped up by more than 400 service providers – that’s double the amount since 2011. LTE extends the coverage, and hence extends the number of addressable customers – many of whom could not be reached before.

By the end of 2012 mobile broadband subscriptions reached 1.4 billion; they are expected to grow to 6.5 billion by the end of 2018. Compared to the evolution of fixed broadband, which is expected to reach not more than 800 million by 2017 (43% of total households), these numbers are staggering. Nowadays many operators prefer to make major network investments in LTE (estimated up to $1 trillion over the next 10 years) rather than fixed line, to keep up with increasing traffic demands from end users. By the end of 2013, there will be over a couple of hundred LTE networks in commercial operation worldwide and well over 800 devices supporting LTE.

Not only will LTE cover the largest geographical area ever, it is also becoming a key organic growth opportunity for operators in the history of business.

Deliver on the 4G promises

LTE not only enables much faster data transfer speeds compared to previous mobile technologies (2G, 3G…), but also offers the real advantage of a much more enticing and reliable UX over 4G. Compared to 3G, LTE can also support a much larger number of subscribers active on the same network at the same time, without impacting their QoS (Quality of Service) and QoE (Quality of Experience).
