  2. 2. Global Mobile Technology Evolution 326 Mbps Commercial Speeds 173 Mbps 86 Mbps 58 Mbps (DownLink) 42.5 Mbps 11.5 Mbps (UpLink) 28.8 Mbps 11.5 Mbps 14.4 Mbps 5.76 Mbps Target 14.4 Mbps 1 Gbps 0.384 Mbps 0.384 Mbps 0.064 Mbps 326 Mbps  2G – better mobile voice services, based on the maximum offered by EDGE 168 Mbps  3G – more and better quality data services , based on the maximum 1.2 offered by HSPA family Mbps  4G – LTE, extending significantly data services in line with demand growth Evolved HSPA+ LTE LTE-A EDGELTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 1
  3. 3. Global Mobile Technology Coverage 100% 90% Rural 87% 80% Suburban 36% 30% Urban Metro 3% 0% World 2011 2015 2011 2015 2011 2015 population distribution GSM/EDGE 3G/HSPA LTE Source – Wireless Intelligence April 2012LTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 2
  4. 4. Global LTE Evolution 72 Commercial LTE networks launched in 37 countries Countries with commercial LTE services 258 commercial LTE 61 pre-commitment 319 Operators in Countries with LTE commercial networks deployments ongoing or planned network commitments trials in other 13 97 countries Countries with LTE trial systems (pre-commitment) in 84 countries countries investing in LTELTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 3
  5. 5. Global Mobile Traffic Evolution Global LTE Connections by Region (2011-2016) Global Mobile Data Traffic by Technology (2008 – 2016 ) 600 4,000 500 3,500 Connections (millions) 3,000 Traffic (PB per year) 400 2,500 300 2,000 200 1,500 1,000 100 500 0 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2008 2010 2012 2014 2016 Africa Americas Asia Pacific HSDPA HSUPA LTE WiMAX Europe: Eastern Europe: Western Middle East USA/Canada Source: Informa Telecom & Media, Wireless Intelligence (Q1, 2012)LTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 4
  6. 6. Operators Challenges Technology complexity Spectrum scarcity / fragmentation Network interoperability Seamless LTE deployment / migration Roaming in other networks (LTE / Legacy technologies) LTE deployment strategies Managing LTE and already existing technologies Lack of LTE Smartphones (mobile data traffic drivers) New business modelsLTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 5
  7. 7. Fragmentation in LTE (driven by spectrum scarcity)  ≈ 40 different radio frequency combinations may be used in LTE deployments in the next few years (GSMAs Wireless Intelligence 2011). 700, 850 MHz 1.7, 1.9, 2.1, 2.5 GHz 800, 900 MHz  Devices built for one band of 1.8, 1.9, 2.1, 2.3, 2.5 GHz radio frequency wont work on 450, 700, 850, 900 MHz 1.7, 1.8, 2.1, 2.3, 2.5 GHz other bands. 2.3 GHz 2.6 GHz  Negative impact on the handset 450, 800, 850, 900 MHz industry, losing economy of scale 1.8, 1.9, 2.1, 2.5 GHz  Negative impact on the overall 450, 700, 850, 900 MHz 1.7, 1.8, 1.9, 2.5 GHz mobile telecom ecosystem  Most likely heading “regional LTE roaming”, but less chances for “worldwide LTE roaming”.  Building devices accommodating the most widely used spectrum bands (even 40+ different frequencies)LTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 6
  8. 8. Roaming Challenges Interoperability Security Scalability 3G LTE Network Switching Circuit Packet Complexity Voice bearer TDM voice Packet voice Roaming signaling SS7 Diameter Subscriber data HLR HSSLTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 7
  9. 9. Roaming Challenges  LTE Roaming scenarios Roaming  LTE–to–LTE and LTE–to–Legacy Technologies Strategies  Definition of LTE roaming partners Roaming  LTE compliance of all services Business  New types of traffic Operation  Agreements with LTE roaming partners  New players entering the LTE space Wholesale  LTE new/additional revenues Roaming  Re-definition of traditional wholesale models  Non-readiness of existing partners  Pricing strategies for LTE roamers (inbound/outbound) Retail  Charging plan/ tariffs (volume based / duration based) Roaming  Separate processes for LTE and legacy technologiesLTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 8
  10. 10. Customer Expectations Broadband access everywhere – home, business, mobility Ubiquity – anywhere, anytime More Speed Higher speeds – Faster downloads / uploads Higher voice quality Enhanced Quality of Service (QoS) More Services Improved end-user experience New / more services and applications More attractive prices, packages & offers Higher QoSLTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 9
  11. 11. Customer Expectations 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 LTE Smartphone (data / voice)  Entry barrier: Free as subscribers need not initially pay  Components: 4G SIM, 4G modem, 10 GB of free data to be consumed in Data Card three months maximum  Prices: The monthly fee is SAR 350 for unlimited HSPA+ data. To get LTE access, a premium price of: • SAR 99 for 5GB • SAR 199 for 10 GB Expected More Offers/ Coverage Mobility QoS Services PricesLTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 10
  12. 12. In Conclusion … Technology  Enabling seamless evolution to LTE / 4G Evolution (LTE Deployments)  Properly define LTE deployment strategy in all areas – Consumer Mobility technical, business, commercial and operational aspects (Globalization) Consumer Expectations  Considering both interoperability & roaming for all services (Seamless Migration)  Enhancing basic roaming solutions to adapt for LTE  Redefining partnerships / roaming agreements with the different players and ecosystems that LTE will bring along  Collaborating with partners much closer to LTE than to 3G – securing a better migration towards LTE/4GLTE World SUMMIT 2012 – Barcelona (May 2012) 11
