  • 1. LTE Profit Mantras 2012-2016Report Details:Published:September 2012No. of Pages: 180Price: Single User License – US$3995Chanting the innovative ways of doing business with LTE, Tariff mechanisms, MobileConvergence; Overcoming Post-Deployment Challenges; Case Studies on NetworkSharing/Special Efficiency/Interoperability & Roaming; along with LTE-Advanced Roadmaps,2012-2016LTE Profit Mantras is a tribute to TRL for its unique management vision of endeavouring to deliverwhat its clientele actually look for - Progressive ARPUs leading towards greater profits via NGNtechnologies, in particular LTE/LTE Advanced."" - Analysts team, TeleResearch Labs.Key Questions answered:•What are the appropriate LTE deployment, pricing and product positioning models to accomplish profit from shortest turnaround?•What are the various pre/ post deployment LTE issues operators are facing, and how to work around them?•What are the mechanisms to optimise LTE CAPEX and OPEX?•How best to integrate LTE TDD and LTE FDD?•What are the key global LTE operators future strategies?•Who should or shouldnt yet delve into LTE deployments, and why?•What new business models can device makers work upon in collaboration with operators to mass-customise LTE services?•How can operators in under-developed/ developing economies turn the very disadvantages into their strengths vis-à-vis LTE deployments?•How best should MNOs handle the device subsidies issue?•What are the innovative and non-traditional business models for operators to make LTE bundling & branding viral (like various QoS/ value-based offerings etc.)?•How can operators work with vendors to optimise the use of Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA)?•What are our recommendations for effective business collaborations amongst operators and vendors?Get your copy of this report @
