Research and Markets: LTE CAPEX & OPEX Strategies 2014-2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lwnx8k/lte_capex_and) has announced the addition of the "LTE CAPEX & OPEX Strategies 2014-2018" report to their offering.

Till 2012, major LTE investments were limited to a small number of operators in North America, Japan and South Korea. However, LTE investments have now started taking place in other parts of the world also and the same trend will continue over the next five years as operators across the globe are now unanimous about the potential of LTE as a preferred option to deal with the future demand of mobile data services.

As the roll out of an LTE network involves huge investments, it is posing really complex challenges for network operators. One of the major challenges for them is to prioritise the investments areas and decide the amount of capital allocation into various parts and phases of their LTE networks. Moreover, it is equally important for LTE enablers such as network infrastructure vendors and device manufacturers to properly recognise the current and future LTE market structure and offer appropriate solutions which can justify the operators' costs and revenues.

This Report endeavors to serve as a quick reference on key areas of LTE such as investment optimisation strategies, CAPEX and OPEX categorisation, various LTE deployment strategies, LTE technology trends - TDD/ FDD, developments in LTE-Advanced, and the propositions of various LTE enablers.

The Report also covers key forecasts on LTE CAPEX, growth of LTE Base Stations, Small Cells Backhaul CAPEX, Backhaul OPEX, and the uptake of LTE/ LTE-Advanced. These crucial forecasts will greatly help the various stakeholders of LTE in opportunity spotting, strategic planning and roadmapping for the next five years.
