    20. 20. Q&A<br />Does 4G just mean more bandwidth – or what more does it bring to the horizon<br />Device mix expectations for LTE?  Timing?<br />Are the software platforms of today capable of handling 4G networks<br />Are there significant performance differences at the user level between WiMAX and LTE ?<br />What triggered or enabled the emergence of handsets as a volume driver for WiMAX this year?<br />What is it going to take to get even more innovative, compelling products to integrate WiMAX (or LTE) connectivity?<br />What are the inhibitors to 4G technology adoption in the consumer space?  M2M (and what are the applications for 4G in M2M?<br />How will 4G affect data usage business models?<br />VoIP on 4G Mobile (today is mainly CPE)<br />What about multi-mode devices: Are there any technology issues with 2G/3G/4G/WiFi devices? <br />Key predictions for 2011? <br />
    21. 21. Operators:<br />CLWR is WiMAX today; can you comment on the recent filings to “test” LTE?<br />Devices<br />What new capabilities can we look forward to?<br />Components<br />What technology capabilities are not being utilized now? <br />
