Over the last two decades, the way people communicate, stay informed, and are entertained has changed dramatically. There have been two major technologies driving this change – the Internet and mobile wireless communication. Now, these two forces are merging to enable the mobile Internet and the corresponding growth of mobile data services. India’s Long Term Evolution is very much in-shape & it is the future of next generation technology and it is the fastest mounting next generation mobile technology and industry is heavily committed to commercially launch this technology shortly. LTE has gained support from major mobile operators around the world. Out of 110 networks in Asia Pacific, 10 operators (9 percent) have started commercial 4G LTE business. According to a research Another 58 (53 percent) either have specific plans to roll out LTE or are conducting trials, 63 percent of Asia's telecom operators have rolled out LTE 4G, are conducting trials, or have announced plans. Despite challenges, Indian operators are executing a number of initiatives.
The world is committed to LTE and as per the industry reports LTE subscribers are expected to reach 380 million in more than 80 plus networks by 2015 worldwide. Estimate says that total Asia-Pacific mobile capital expenditure to reach US$53.3 billion by the end of 2012,". A research predict that LTE subscriber adoption in India will reach 5 million by 2013 and will reach over $13 billion by 2015, growing at CAGR of over 45%. The total wireless data subscribers stood 683.02 Million, at the end of March 2012, but only 17 million had access to WCDMA services; the rest are being served by GPRS/EDGE. Also 2013 are expected to be declared the year of the LTE, as it is gearing up for a widespread rollout by operators in the country.

LTE will enable operators to meet the growing demand for mobile data solutions, making it possible for richer services to be delivered to consumers more cost effectively. LTE brings a significantly improved business proposition with 2.5 time’s higher capacity, lower cost per bit and media mobility. This new generation of mobile network technologies promises to address bandwidth intensive applications and services and revolutionize the usage of data services along with voice. Wireless industry has seen a blow up in the demand for voice and data services with the sudden increase of mobile telephone subscribers as well as the usage rate in the last few decades. LTE is a good solution to such a scenario, which have strongly emerged as the next generation wireless technology that will lead the growth of mobile broadband services into the next level. This wireless networking technology has the potential to become the universal 4G mobile platform used by both GSM/ High Speed Packet Access & CDMA/EVDO service providers. By this networking technology, service providers around the world have the potential to generate economies of a scale unprecedented.

LTE is expected to provide multi-megabit bandwidth, more efficient use of the radio network, latency reduction, and improved mobility. This is expected to enhance subscriber interaction with the network and further drive the demand for mobile multimedia services. With wireless broadband, people can access Internet services, such as on-line television, blogging, social networking, and interactive gaming easily on the go.

Virtue Insight’s 2nd Annual LTE Summit 2012 will be an extensive platform between the leading influencers and decision makers under one roof to strategize a strong vision for the future of mobile broadband. This summit will help in strategising a strong vision addressing issues related to the wireless broadband technology for LTE technology in the future India, as it is an ideal stage between the key influencers and decision makers.

12:00 – Benefits & Challenges of LTE in India

• LTE efficiently delivers best user experience of broadband and smart device services due to increased data rates, reduced latency and scalable flat all-IP network architecture.
• LTE offers a number of clearly identifiable benefits in comparison to other mobile technologies and these are: Significantly increased peak data rates, Reduced latency, Scalable bandwidth, Compatibility with earlier releases, Reduced CAPEX/OPEX, Improved spectrum efficiency
• LTE will gain traction and the coming years will see greater deployment of LTE. These deployments will be in both TDD and FDD versions. We expect that the growth in LTE will outpace the growth in Wimax.
• Issues around the security clearance (for a new technology/ applications).
• Given the impact on network performance/ user experience, Quality of device will increasingly become important.
• India being a price sensitive market, price points/ tariffs will be one of the key determinants of growth.
• Availability of content in vernacular language will also be a key determinant for take-up of service; especially in rural areas.
• Lack of adequate backhaul and spectrum could emerge as a bottlenecks as the take-up of service increases.
• In the medium to long term these challenges will be overcome and we will see a robust growth in LTE in India.
