  3. 3. LTE: the fastest developing mobile system technology ever ! LTE operator commitments are developing faster than they did for HSPA, which until now had been the fastest developing mobile communications system. By comparing the number of operator commitments 6 months and 12 months after first commercial system launches for HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+ and LTE respectively, LTE proves to be the fastest developing mobile communications system technology ever. Alan Hadden, President of the GSA, said: “LTE made excellent progress in 2010 to become the fastest developing mobile system technology ever. We expect that the introduction of LTE systems and user devices will significantly quicken in 2011.” Chart available as a PDF: www.gsacom.com/gsm_3g/info_papers.php4 or JPEG file: www.gsacom.com/news/statistics.php4 www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2011GSM/3G and LTE Market Update – March 3, 2011 Slide no. 3/64

  23. 23. EDGE Evolution  Evolved GERAN: drivers and goals Operators stress service continuity as being very important WCDMA evolution to HSPA is a key driver for EDGE Evolution (GERAN Evolution) since reducing the performance gap is the priority EDGE Evolution - potential benefits:  2 – 3 times increase in EDGE bit rates  2 – 3 times spectral efficiency gain (for voice & data capacity)  Halve the latency (roundtrip time)  All achieved with low impact on the GSM/EDGE network Standardized in 3GPP Release 7 Leading manufacturers committed www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2011GSM/3G and LTE Market Update – March 3, 2011 Slide no. 23/64
  24. 24. Dual Carrier  The first step in evolving EDGE Dual Carrier is the first step in evolving EDGE, bringing the prospect of doubling today’s EDGE speeds to 592 kbps on existing EDGE-capable networks. Commercial downlink Dual Carrier solutions are expected to be introduced in 2009 EGPRS-2 level B+ is standardized in the newly-released 3GPP Release 8, providing a wider pulse shaping filter to enable higher average end user throughput, and therefore better coverage compared to level B EDGE Evolution capabilities are being deployed – download GSA information paper “EDGE Evolution” for latest updates, via the link on www.gsacom.com GSA Information Paper “EDGE Evolution” www.gsacom.com/gsm_3g/info_papers.php4 www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2011GSM/3G and LTE Market Update – March 3, 2011 Slide no. 24/64

GSA members white papers  Thought-leading  Produced in association with GSA  Free downloads via links on the home page www.gsacom.com Abstract: With mobile broadband becoming more available all the time, and the introduction of smart phones and more applications and content, mobile broadband usage is poised to explode. Some would argue the wave has already hit the market. But if you think that means an automatic windfall for operators, you may be in for a rude awakening. They are challenged to manage this traffic growth, which is increasing at a much faster rate than revenues and creating profitability and customer experience challenges. And they are challenged to identify whether their mobile broadband strategy is to be a bit-pipe access player or to be a value-added player. In this paper, we’ll look at the imminent opportunity of mobile broadband, and assess the competitive threats every provider must grapple with. We’ll also explore ways operators can insert themselves into the value chain, protecting their relationships with their customers, and giving themselves every chance to cash in on what needs to be a significant source of future revenue potential. www.gsacom.com Global mobile Suppliers Association © 2011GSM/3G and LTE Market Update – March 3, 2011 Slide no. 62/64
