LTE is the global standard for the fourth generation of mobile broadband (4G), supported by all major players in the industry. It provides the fastest mobile broadband services commercially available today. The high speeds are made possible by using more radio spectrum per connection, multiple antenna pads and more efficient encoding and the data being sent and received. Simply put, LTE is addressing customer demand for the fastest possible mobile broadband experience.
In the latest Alcatel-Lucent LTE Now Infographic shows this need for operators to get themselves moving to LTE sooner rather than later, since operators that deploy now can secure themselves the lion’s share of new revenues and maximise average revenue per user (ARPU), while keeping their own costs lower.
In countries around the world where operators have already deployed LTE, the proof points became available very quickly. The demand for LTE is undoubtedly there in the marketplace, the benefits to operators of deploying as fast as possible are also clear.
Check out the infographic below to see the benefits operators gain from moving to LTE sooner rather than later.
