LTE in Asia-Pacific: Operator Transition Strategies
Introduction

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for the deployment of LTE across Asia-Pacific. The region's LTE first-movers – Hong Kong's CSL and Japan's NTT DoCoMo – have some commonalities in their approach to LTE: the need to reduce bit costs, increase capacity, and to remain competitive against their competitors

Features and benefits
  • Gain an understanding of CSL's total network swap out approach to LTE
  • Learn why NTT DoCoMo is going straight to LTE rather than deploying HSPA+
  • Gain an understanding of Telstra's plans for LTE
Highlights

The three case studies reveal that an operator's roadmap to LTE is defined by the market's competitiveness, spectrum availability and capacity, and when the operator deems it advantageous to add an LTE capacity layer to reduce per-bit costs.

Your key questions answered
  • How do operators define their roadmaps to LTE?
  • What are the key differences in LTE rollout strategies deployed by CSL, Telstra, and NTT DoCoMo?
