  2. 2. Strategy and role of GSA 2   Global mobile Suppliers Association www.gsacom.com GSA’s strategy is to inform, educate, and influence opinion about mobile communications using 3GPP technologies, including GSM/EDGE, WCDMA-HSPA/HSPA+, and LTE/LTE Advanced by reporting on the facts, statistics, developments and trends GSA is a trusted brand used widely across the industry, and is established as the de-facto reference source for the worldwide status of mobile broadband commitments, network deployments and launches, and the supporting devices ecosystems 2 58,700+ registered site users (31 July 2013) “Collabora+on   with   GSA   in   par+cular   on   the   LTE1800   and   LTE2600   MHz   front   has   certainly   contributed  to  the  fast  development  of  the  eco-­‐ system   into   these   two   bands,   as   we   can   see   from  the  high  numbers  of  networks  and  devices   now  in  these  bands.  This  is  helping  the  industry   in   deploying   4G   LTE   networks   globally   at   the   fastest   speed   ever   seen   for   a   wireless   technology   to   offer   an   improved   broadband   experience  to  the  more  demanding  customers”   –  CSL  Limited   “GSA   is   doing   a   wonderful   job   and   its   web  site  gsacom.com  has  become  a  one   stop   shop   for   any   key   informa+on   like   operator   roll-­‐outs,   device   eco   system,   vendor  informa+on,  etc.  etc.  for  Mobile   Broadband.   If   you   want   the   latest   informa+on   for   any   mobile   broadband   ecosystem  just  login  to  gsacom.com”   –  Dialog  Axiata   “Telstra  has  worked  closely  with  the  GSA  for   a  number  of  years  to  obtain  vital  informa+on   on  emerging  technology  trends  and  take  up   rates.   We   have   also   jointly   worked   to   gain   industry   alignment   for   new   opportuni+es   such   as   the   recent   emergence   of   LTE1800.   The   informa+on   papers,   LinkedIn   site   and   GSA   site   allow   operators   from   around   the   world  to  obtain  +mely  informa+on  to  assist   in  network  and  strategic  planning  decisions.”   The GSA website is targeted to the industry q Global reach, users community growing by ~9,000 per year q 250K downloads of reports, papers, etc. in past 12 months q Significant presence across social network platforms Some  operator  tes+monials

  4. 4. Relentless drive towards LTE 4   Global mobile Suppliers Association www.gsacom.com q Around 50% of all phones sold in Q1 2013 were smartphones, compared to 40% for the full year in 2012 q Mobile data traffic doubled between Q1 2012 and Q1 2013 and expected to grow 12 times by end 2018, driven mainly by video q Online video is the biggest contributor to mobile traffic volumes q  100 hours of video are uploaded per minute (May 2013) q Total mobile subscriptions are expected to reach 9.1 billion by end 2018 q LTE subscriptions are predicted to reach 2 billion in 2018 June 2013 www.ericsson.com Mobile broadband subscriptions reached 1.7 billion in Q1 2013 and are expected to reach 7 billion in 2018 LTE is growing strongly; 100 million subs passed in May 2013 4 Mobile PCs, tablets and mobile routers Fixed broadband Mobile subscriptions Subscriptions/lines(million) Mobile broadband 0 1,000 2,000 3,000 4,000 5,000 6,000 7,000 8,000 9,000 2018201720162015201420132012201120102009 Figure 4: Smartphone, PC, mobile routers and tablet subscriptions with cellular connection, 2009-2018 0 1,000 2,000 3,000 4,000 5,000 6,000 2018201720162015201420132012201120102009 Mobile PCs, tablets and mobile routers Smartphones Subscriptions(million) Source: Ericsson (June 2013) Mobile broadband: Includes CDMA2000 EV-DO, HSPA, LTE, Mobile WiMAX and TD-SCDMA.

Lack of 3G/4G coverage may connect users to 2G networks (GSM, CDMA1X). Regional differences will be large. In 2018 almost all handsets in Western Europe and North America will be smartphones, compared to 40-50 percent of handset subscriptions in the Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific regions. Mobile technology Figure 5 illustrates reported mobile subscriptions categorized by technology. Subscriptions are defined by the most advanced technology that the mobile phone and network are capable of. LTE is currently being deployed and built-out in all regions and will reach around 2 billion subscriptions in 2018. >9 MOBILE SUBSCRIPTIONS BY THE END OF 2018 BILLION

The “Evolution to LTE” report is regularly updated and may be downloaded by any registered user of the GSA website. Information is provided about the LTE system – both for FDD and TDD modes, technical standards, operator investments and commitments including listings of all network deployments, studies and trials, commercial service launches (see GSA’s definition of commercial launch – below), and regulatory developments including spectrum supporting LTE-enabled mobile broadband service network deployments. Details are also provided about LTE user devices that have been announced by manufacturers. Information for the production of this report was obtained in several ways, including from regular information exchanges and direct contacts by GSA with senior management in network operator organizations, regulatory authorities, suppliers and other stakeholders. This is in addition to consideration and analysis of public statements where appropriate e.g. company press releases and briefings, in order to establish the facts as accurately as possible and ensure that this report reflects the true LTE mobile broadband market situation. Comments about the report including news/updates should be sent to email info@gsacom.com GSA provides additional LTE-related resources to complement this report, including various maps and charts, which can be downloaded by registered site users at www.gsacom.com/news/statistics.php4 Selected charts and maps are also available as PDF files – see the relevant links on our home page www.gsacom.com Readers may also download these related reports: • Status of the LTE Ecosystem report • Status of the Global LTE TDD Market report • Status of the Global LTE1800 Market report info@gsacom.com For further information please visit www.gsacom.com/disclaimer.php4 LTE Market Summary – July 16, 2013 194 commercial networks in 75 countries 443 operators investing in LTE in 130 countries • 391 operator commitments in 120 countries • 52 pre-commitment trials in 10 more countries GSA forecasts 260 commercial LTE networks in 93 countries by end 2013 MVNOs are excluded © GSA www.gsacom.com GSA re-affirms LTE as the fastest developing mobile system technology ever LTE is a mainstream technology and rapid expansion globally is continuing in 2013 GSA’s definition of commercial launch: The phase in which a public telecommunications operator is carrying commercial traffic on its LTE network, or offers to provide public service. Only licensed operators with spectrum assigned for use in public LTE communications networks are considered. MVNOs are not included. The LTE operator’s business model may be retail or wholesale. Devices compatible for use on the LTE network may be sold direct by the operator to the customer, or via distributors, resellers or other third parties, or already be owned by persons wishing to use the service.

The combination of TFO and TrFO enables W-AMR calls between all types of 3GPP mobile devices (i.e. GSM/EDGE and UMTS/WCDMA-HSPA). Voice for LTE users LTE systems are all-IP, optimized for data transfer and do not have circuit switched capability as used on previous technologies for voice and SMS services. Since voice and SMS generate the majority of operator revenues globally, voice service is needed for LTE users. With VoLTE (Voice over LTE: GSMA spec. VoLTE IR.92), subscribers can use HD voice and other new richer communication services with LTE smartphones. VoLTE provides voice service on an all-IP network in a shared resource environment. The operator must have an IMS core network and the LTE radio access network and Evolved Packet Core must also support VoLTE, typically enabled by software upgrade. VoLTE technology is maturing. SK Telecom confirmed 4.5 million VoLTE subscribers by end May 2013.

Technology neutrality including spectrum refarming (e.g. 900 MHz and 1800 MHz bands) are key themes for GSA and are reflected in several deliverables. Information about the spectrum used for LTE deployments, and subscriptions growth were highly requested. The development of HD voice services on mobile networks, enabled by W-AMR technology, is another popular topic for which GSA provides regular status reports. The website also provides a valuable global distribution and promotion channel to key industry audiences for GSA member companies, who are able to reach existing and potential customers, partners and policy-makers. Materials from GSA member companies currently represent around 10% of monthly downloads. File downloads from www.gsacom.com Aug 2010 – July 2013
