4G in India .....Telecom

  1. 1. Airtel 4G Launch ‘4G Technology’ growth analysis PESHWA 1
  2. 2. Introduction Technology Mantra - “Every 18 months the performance doubles.” Moores law – Is getting proved by the substantial development in telecommunicationsWith launch of Airtel 4G, India has stepped into a new horizon of telecommunications 2
  3. 3. 4G(Fourth Generation)??Ultra-broadband, successor to 3GDesigned for wireless or mobile data services using spectrum or airwaves moreefficiently, enabling speeds of as much as 100 mbps (megabits per second)High quality audio/video streaming over end to end Internet ProtocolFast communicationQuick data transferDistant business correspondence by sharing data becomes very importantWireless broadband for the instant downloadIt’s very much equivalent to getting a LAN or Gigabit Ethernet connection to amobile device 3
  4. 4. Wireless Broadband conceptProvide broadband data access by wireless means to consumer and business markets.High-speed wireless Internet accessProvide download speeds of over 100 Mbit/sBroadband wireless access (BWA) services are estimated to have a range of 50 km (31 mi) from atowerProvide full mobility supportThe 4G technologies in use are flash OFDM, 802.16e wireless or mobile WiMax and HC SDMA, UMBand Wi-Fi PESHWA ACHARYA 4 (
  5. 5. 4G technology – How it works Two technologies 4G on which 4G will be supposedly standardized LTE WiMAXWiMAXWiMAX stands for Worldwide Interoperability of Microwave AccessNow the modified standard 802.16m has been developed with the properties of speed,wide spectrum, and increase band.4G has an advantage of having the WiMAX as a product because IEEE introduces andreleases it already therefore economic as no need to pay for its manufacturing price.It manages the voice through packet-switching instead of circuit switching. Internetconnectivity with specific IP not only increases the speed but also reliability of thesending and receiving of data. 5
  6. 6. 4G technology – How it worksLTE LTE (Long Term Evolution) is introduced by Verizon LTE is considered to be promising high data transfer speed supposed to provide internet facility using both systems ability of transition from one mode to another developed on radio waves technology increases the speed but also the amount of data allowed through the same bandwidth and results into lower cost As LTE is compatible with 3G technology so it not only increases the speed but also prevents the need of new network and can work through the same infrastructure LTE is using MIMO (Multiple input multiple output) able to send and receive huge data negative in the sense that it will overload the base stations networks 6
  7. 7. 4G licenses in India• Aircel: Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Jammu & Kashmir, North East, Orissa, Tamilnadu, West Bengal (8 Circles)• Augere-Zoosh (Mauritius-based company): Madhya Pradesh & Chattishgarh (1 Circle)• Bharati Airtel: Karnataka, Kolkata, Maharashtra and Goa, Punjab (4 Circles)• BSNL: All India except Delhi & Mumbai (20 Circles)• MTNL: Delhi, Mumbai (2 Circles)• Reliance Infotel: All India (22 Circles)• Qualcomm: Delhi, Mumbai, Haryana and Kerala (4 Circles)• Tikona: Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, UP East, UP West (5 Circles) 7
  8. 8. 4G and Airtel1st to launch 4G in IndiaAirtel will initially offer 4G through dongles only becauseof lack of 4G (LTE) devices in the Indian marketDongles will be supplied by ZTE, a Chinese companyTD-LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology - platform for future broadband revolutionCircles covered – Kolkata, Karnataka, Punjab and Maharashtra (excluding Mumbai)US-based Symmetricom that makes timing and synchronisation products will provide fourth-generation or4G equipment worth $20 million to Indian telecom companies that won permits to offer wireless broadbandservicesBharti Airtel, Mukesh Ambani-owned Infotel Broadband, chipmaker Qualcomm, Augere and Tikona paidmore than 38,500 crore for wireless broadband airwaves in May 2010 8
  9. 9. Worldwide picture – BWA success Company Country Comments Korea ■ First company in Korea to explore wireless broadband services ■ Deployed approximately 600 base stations covering 12 million people ■ Established itself as the wireless broadband leader in Korea USA ■ Operates in the United States, Ireland, Belgium, Spain, Denmark (with Danske Telecom) and Mexico (with MVSNet) ■ Offers internet speeds of up to 6 Mbps per user device ■ Launched 4G WiMaAX in Jan 2009 Russia ■ First mobile WiMAX network in Russia, launched in September 2008 ■ Offers internet speeds of up to 10 Mbps per user device ■ Installed 150 base stations in Moscow and 80 base stations in St. Petersburg with peak data rates of about 180 Gbit per second UQ Japan ■ Only telecom company in Japan providing nationwide mobile services basedCommunications on WiMAX ■ Aims to extend coverage to 90% by 2012 P1 Malaysia ■ First operator to launch commercial WiMAX operations in Malaysia in 2008; acquired 100k subs within 6 months of launch ■ Investment plans of over $300mn in the next 5 years 9
  10. 10. Indian PictureAirtel – “4G has the potential to transform India" platform for "building the countrys digital economy” This makes India one of the first countries to commercially deploy Long Term Evolution Time Division Duplex (LTE-TDD) technology In 1995, India had a cellular subscriber base of only 75,000. Today, this figure is almost 600 million – a phenomenal growth of 8000 times. India is second only to China in terms of subscriber base. The Indian broadband landscape of 2010 is similar to the cellular voice landscape of 1995. India ranks almost at the bottom with under 1% penetration 10
  11. 11. Strong growth in GDP and Per Capita Income • India is the largest, fastest growth market and also the most competitive – this has been achieved predominantly in the past decade • Increase in India’s per capita income to result in higher broadband penetration 11
  12. 12. Growth In Broadband Connections Between 2009-2013Broadbandconnection inIndiaexpected togrow rapidlyin the next 3years BWA Spectrum availability to facilitate this growth further 12
  13. 13. Competition of Airtel with others in 4G Reliance Infotel Ltd is the only operator with spectrum across the country. The firm is expected to launch services using the same TD-LTE technology by the end of the June quarter Aircel has the second-highest number of BWA circles. The telco announced it successfully tested the technology in September and will launch services soon. Tikona already has a relatively strong broadband subscriber base with a million customers using unlicensed spectrum. It’s expected to launch 4G in Gujarat soon, using LTE. The firm also has spectrum in Uttar Pradesh (east and west), Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh Qualcomm is considered the owner of the TD-LTE standard. The firm hopes to use its India experience as a showcase of the technology to the world. The company has teamed up with Tulip Telecomand Global Holding Corp (which owns telecom tower company GTL Infrastructure Ltd) Augere has spectrum in Madhya Pradesh and is expected to launch TD-LTE services around June/July’ 2012 13
  14. 14. ChallengesAnalysts say Indias rural areas offer huge market potential but erectinginfrastructure to support high-speed networks will be costly, making urban areas theimmediate battlegrounds for customers.Device Availability• LTE tablets to be launched soon• Device makers will start launching 4G tablets once Reliance Infotel, which has a pan India 4G license, rolls out 4G services.Price SensitivitySuccess of 4g seeing the past performance of 3G (due tounaffordable devices)Build up new customer base 14
  15. 15. Impact/trends that 4G will bring 4G networks, when tied together with mobile phones with in-built higher resolution digital cameras and also High Definition capabilities will facilitate video blogs. Likely to enable ubiquitous computing, that will simultaneously connects to numerous high data speed networks offers faultless handoffs all over the geographical regions. If any VoIP client is installed on a hand device then there will be facility to make VoIP calls from mobile. This may kill the mobile voice market soon. Run Skype, YouTube, IP TV apps, Video on Demand, VoIP Client and many more in tablets and Smartphones 15
