How LTE can future proof investments for operators


As operators look forward to provide better speed, applications and embrace global standards on 4G, Long Term Evolution or LTE is poised to make its mark on the telecom turf.

And driving the telecoms evolution for better wireless broadband capabilities is customers’ increasing expectations for an always on speed, bandwidth, and uninterrupted access. Customers want more information, such as business and consumer applications, and entertainment available through their mobile devices, but with greater speeds.

In order to handle such business pressure, wireless carriers and their networks need to start behaving more like landline IP-based networks. And hence, migrations to LTE can future proof investments on the operator side.

This holds a fundamental shift in an operator’s perspective, focusing itself from mobile services to broadband connections. Additionally, unlike earlier wireless standards, 4G technology is based on TCP/IP, the core protocol of the Internet and that is why it holds great potential to seamlessly weave multiple set of devices into its fold.
