    • LTE Business ReadinessLong Term Evolution (LTE) is a key buzz word in the mobile networks sector, but little has been writtenabout the opportunities and challenges that are brought forward by this new technology. This paper aimsto provide a snapshot of the likely changes it will bring to telecom operators and the mobile internetservice providers businesses. The paper shall also look at the adoption of LTE network worldwide via thegrowth of 3G subscriber base from now until 2013. Asia Pacific seems to lead this growth with India andChina expected to be the major contributors. This paper also draws attention to two case studies, that ofTeliaSonera and Verizon Wireless of their successful deployment of the LTE network. The paper shall alsodefine LTE, in comparison to WiMAX.www.solidiance.com

    • LTE Global Outlook and ForecastMobile Networks continue to grow at an exciting pace. There are 6 billion mobile phone subscriptionsin the world, with 1.2 billion of them using mobile internet. Today, one in five mobile phone subscribershave access to fast mobile internet service (3G or better). Consumer demands for advanced services andmore connected lifestyles is pushing the mobile telecom industry to come up with technical solutions thatenable network operators to meet this demand of consumers. Working on the same lines, 3rd GenerationPartnership Project (3GPP) came up with a standard called Long Term Evolution (LTE).What is LTE ?Simply put, LTE is just another way to give enhanced data speed and new services to consumers. LTEdoes this by creating a new radio access network named Evolved UMTS Terrestrial RadioAccess Network (E-UTRAN), which supports all IP-based traffic. LTE has a new packetcore network called System ​ Evolution (SAE), which will support E-UTRAN. Together,these two will help network operators improve end-user throughputs, sector capacity,reduce user plane latency and better multipath, mobility and power performance.3GPP has set aggressive performance targets for LTE. It is relying on technologies likeMultiple-Input Multiple-Output system (MIMO), Orthogonal Frequency DivisionMultiplexing (OFDM) & smart antennas to achieve these targets. One of the mainobjectives of LTE is to minimize complexities in existing system infrastructureand offer operators a simple upgrade path from current 3G networks.So how is it differentfrom WiMAX ?LTE is developed by 3GPP, while WiMAX is a product of IEEE. LTEand WiMAX, though are different technological standards,yet posses many similarities. One cannot call them siblings,but calling them blood-related would not be too wrong. 3

    • LTE will help telecom operators to give better data usage experience to customers. In HSPA+ you have a speed of maximum 42Mbit/sec per cell to be shared by all subscribers connected to that cell but LTE gives maximum of 300Mbit/sec per cell - Regional LTE Product Line Manager at Alcatel-Lucent (Malaysia)Here is a brief comparison between two: through WiMAX. This point is important forSpeed: network operators as International roamingLTE can achieve 300 Mbit/s on downlink & 75 contributes substantially to their revenuesMbit/s on uplink. Whereas, WiMAX can give 128 and also provides convenience to theirMbit/s on downlink & 56 Mbit/s on uplink. consumers.Latency: SIM Card:There is a good difference between latency of LTE, like GSM requires SIM card to operate.these two technologies. Latency rate for LTE is WiMAX does not require a SIM card. Looking10ms while for WiMAX it is 50ms. Low latency at the popularity of GSM networks, it sure is arate is important for real-time multimedia disadvantage for WiMAX.services like online gaming & conferences as the Power Consumption:signal must arrive at the destination as soon as LTE uses SC-FDMA modulation in uplinkpossible channels, hence requires less power thanRoaming: WiMAX. This results in longer battery time ofLTE provides roaming on all 3GPP networks. mobile device for LTE.However, roaming is not very easy to achieve LTE WIMAX Speed 300 Mbit/s Downlink 128 Mbit/s Downlink 75 Mbit/s Uplink 56 Mbit/s Uplink Latency 10ms 50ms OFDMA (downlink) OFDMA (downlink) Modulation SC-FDMA (uplink) OFDMA (uplink) MIMO Yes Yes FDD/TDD FDD for full duplex on two 5 MHz channels TDD for half duplex on one 10 MHz channels Mobility Operates with a target up to 350 km/h Operates with a target up to 120 km/h 5

TeliaSonera was the first operator to launch commercial LTE service in the two Scandinavian countries Norway & Sweden. 15 new operators were added to this list in 2010, 31 in 2011 and other 9 launched LTE services in the beginning of 2012. LTE is fast becoming a global standard and Asian operators are certainly not going to watch the party from outside, CSL Hong Kong and NTT Docomo have already launched their LTE services. Middle Eastern operator are also picking up pace in launching LTE.6
    • LTE is the new GSM, it is the sort of standard we were waiting for. It is technologically advance and much more stable than WiMAX, it provides similar mobility as GSM and enables quick updates to its system - LTE Project Manager, ZTE (Hong Kong)Ingredients to increase ARPU – Opportunity forNetwork OperatorsSmart Device boom:Non-PC devices are replacing PC devices at a fast rate. Consumers want everything to be mobile asmanufacturers are providing them with devices that can handle high amount of data transfer whilethey are on a move.

    • Cloud computing & Software as a Service:It is already becoming the talk of the town as network hosted information and applications allowsubscribers to upload and download data at ease from anywhere. Network operators can build an eco-system around this and use software as a Service.Leveraging on Web 2.0:LTE allows network operators to leverage on the applications and services provided by web 2.0 to servetheir consumers with personalized products.Automatic initiation of Multiple, simultaneous sessions:Mobile browsers can initiate multiple, simultaneous connections from the device, to the network, todownload security updates, refresh local mini-databases, and enable applications. This gives morecontrol to networks to personalize content for users.Data usage on a high in Asian marketsData is fast replacing voice and SMS as the major contributor to ARPU for network operators in Asia.Market is led by Philippines and Japan, closely followed by Korea and Singapore.

    • A comparison of mobile usage behaviour amongst Japan, US and 5 European countries reveal that Japanese users at an average use more data services than users of any other country used in this comparison. Japan has always been a benchmark in mobile technology in Asia and like Japan, if other Asian countries start to provide high data speed to customers, their ARPU from data would substantially rise.

    • In Asia, most probably we will use 2.6 GHz band. It has its advantages anddisadvantages, on the up-side governments will have a wider bandwidth to offer to operators as compared to 800MHz or 900MHz band so operators can make use of full capacity of LTE. However, a higher frequency means poor coverage, so operators will have to invest more in cell sites - Regional LTE Product Line Manager at Alcatel-Lucent (Malaysia) LTE adoption & its challenges Spectrum Harmonization: One of the key benefits of GSM networks has been seamless roaming across countries and continents, largely because of harmonized spectrum spanning large parts of the world. LTE infrastructure is being designed to operate in different spectrum bands of different sizes, however, ranging from 1.25 MHz to 20 MHz. To truly support seamless global roaming, harmonized spectrum will be needed otherwise the burden is shifted to terminals e.g., handsets or mobile devices to support multiple frequency bands, which adds time, expense, complexity and inefficiency to the equation. In US, 700 MHz band has already been auctioned for LTE. However, European countries are trying to free 800 MHz band for LTE. One other option is 2.6 GHz band and it can serve as harmonized spectrum. However, there are a couple of important attributes to the 2.6 GHz frequency band. First, relatively poor propagation characteristics will significantly impact indoor coverage, an issue already quite visible in the 3G HSPA networks deployed in the 2.1 GHz band. Second, poor propagation characteristics also translate into smaller cell radius, hence the need for more cells, which adds expense and complexity. Lastly and most importantly, frequency has a direct impact on network costs, as both op-ex and cap-ex increase significantly with higher frequency. 13
    • other technologies (GSM, CDMA, 3G) as well? Network operators might start their service with data cards and dongles but the advent of LTE smartphone will change the whole landscape of LTE adoption. Many carriers are not rolling out LTE nationwide in their domains so for an LTE device to have the ability to drop back to another technology network is also a must. LTE devices need to support Multiple Input/ Multiple Output (MIMO) in order to deliver high data rates but this directly increases a device’s complexity. One of the interesting things to watch will be whether the initial devices will support only 2x2 MIMO or Voice over LTE: whether some vendors will launch devices In LTE, most of the standardization work has supporting 4x4 MIMO from the start. This been focused on the data aspects and voice has choice is directly related to battery life, and been somewhat neglected. Different operators while data cards and dongles might get are giving different priority to this issue; in fact, enough juice from their hosting laptops and some of the early adopters are looking at data- netbooks but smart phone designers have only services for their initial LTE network rollouts. critical design challenges in front of them in Clearly, the full op-ex and cap-ex benefits of LTE terms of balancing battery life with MIMO can only be realized when all traffic types are support. carried over a single, unified core. The issue of standardization of voice over LTE gets even more Consumer’s expectation management: complicated when we bring into the mix the Consumers have traditionally been paying interlocking of LTE with different types of legacy little amount of money for their data plans networks including GSM, HSPA, CDMA2000, as many operators have followed the flat WiMAX and Wi-Fi. rate business model. It is yet to be seen how network operators will be able to charge Devices & Terminals: premium prices to customer for LTE usage. One of the key aspects to look into is the availability AT&T in US claims that iPhone drives 30 of devices for LTE. When will they be available? times more traffic than average feature How would they look like? Would they support phones but looking at ARPU we find iPhone14

The average smartphoneuser consumes about 375 MB of data a month, but users of LTE consume 15GB a month. This is equivalent to the amount consumed by the typicalwired broadband user, which is 14.9 GB a month according to Cisco.TeliaSonera’s LTE users have been taking advantage of the enhancedspeed of LTE, which is ten times the speed of a typical 3G connection.A survey of the network’s LTE users found• 54 percent would not consider returning to 3G at present• 46 percent surf the web more frequently when away from home• 26 percent say they are working more on a mobile basis• 23 percent say they are downloading larger files to a greater extent than previously 17

A study by Informa Telecoms & Media, utilizing real data from TeliaSonera and Spotify,estimated that an operator in Western Europe with 20 million customers could potentially generateUS$106.3 million of revenues from partnering with a music streaming service. This is on top of otherbenefits such as reduced churn, increased ARPU, brand awareness and increased lifetime customervalue. Spotify has helped TeliaSonera to differentiate itself from its competitors, as over half ofSpotify/TeliaSonera customers said that they were more likely to stay with Telia as a result of thepartnership with Spotify). The partnership allows Telia to leverage on Spotify’s strong brand presence,especially with those under 30, and effectively tackle the challenge of targeting young subscribers. 19
    • Case Study: Verizon Wireless – LTE and its dynamic eco-system Verizon has long been known for its ‘walled garden’ approach, but is abandoning this model in the face of 4G. As noted by Lowell McAdam, president and COO of Verizon, collaboration and openness are the ‘new paradigm’ in the wireless industry, and innovations in applications and use are increasingly coming from beyond the company. In response to this, Verizon plans to transform its business model by opening its network, applications and location technologies to outside developers The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2011 saw Verizon announcing a slew of new partnerships to add to its value added services offerings for its LTE customers. Slacker Radio, an Internet radio service, announced that an optimized application for the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network will be available on select 4G smartphones. It will provide Verizon Wireless 4G LTE customers with high-fidelity audio and high-resolution album art in addition to artist profiles and album review, making for a highly personalized music experience. Users will also be able to cache their favourite stations for offline playback. Other music streaming services such as Rhapsody, MOG and Tune Wiki also announced the release of exclusive mobile applications on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network, creating a plethora of choices for Verizon LTE users Verizon Wireless 4G LTE customers will also have the ability to watch their home TV on their 4G smartphones through a monthly subscription to Sling Media, which will include the Slingbox, the SlingPlayer application and networking accessories. The significantly faster connection and reduced latency of the 4G LTE network will enable subscribers to enjoy a higher video quality. The on-demand premium mobile TV and movie service BitBop also announced at CES that it would be available to Verizon Wireless customers on both the 3G and 4G LTE Mobile Broadband networks, with additional functionality for 4G LTE customers in the form of higher-quality video streams and downloads Mobile gaming will also get a boost, with Gameloft stating at CES that Let’s Golf! 2 will be available on20
