Webinar  Pathway to LTE for Competitive and Rural Carriers  Sponsored by RCA
Thursday, January 26, 2012 - Session is closed but available for download.

For the first time since the invention of the analog cellular network, the world's telecom operators are converging on a single wireless standard - LTE. There is little debate that over time, virtually every GSM, UMTS, CDMA, WiMax and proprietary broadband wireless operator will need to plan their path to LTE.  With Verizon, AT&T and Sprint building out LTE at a furious pace, their marketing is highly effective in convincing consumers that 4G is vital to their wireless lifestyle and that 4G = LTE. This means that for many competitive and rural carriers, the path to LTE may need to be a more like a 100 yard dash rather than a quiet walk in the woods.With a realistic market focus,  good planning, and the right suppliers, launching a viable LTE service is achievable today.  This webinar covered all the technology components of an LTE rollout plan - the radio network, the core network, and devices.   At the same time, it looked at the less tangible but none-the-less essential aspects such as creating realistic market projections, making spectrum choices and establishing roaming agreements. The path to LTE won't be a cakewalk, but with planning, it shouldn’t be hot coals either.
