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.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company?

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
