In this issue of Signals Ahead we provide and discuss various data points which stem from our participation and attendance at the LTE Americas event in Dallas, Texas and the GSMA Mobile Asia Congress (MAC) in Hong Kong.

  • LTE Update. Of all the operators, Yota is perhaps taking the most aggressive stance toward LTE, largely because of its plans to move very quickly and completely away from Mobile WiMAX.
  • TD-LTE Update. We look at Reliance’s near- and long-term plans for TD-LTE and its aggressive targets for 2011. China Mobile may be a bit late to the party, but it is increasing the size of its market trials – now set for early 2011.
  • Smart or Dumb? We comment on various operator views about being a smart or dumb pipe and why we believe operators are leaving something on the table if they rely entirely on the dumb pipe strategy.
  • The Impact of Smartphones and Social Networking Services. In addition to presenting various data points from around the world, we discuss how cloud computing, intelligent networks, network offloading and data caching can and will be used… to varying degrees of success.
