India joins race towards LTE
LTE India 2010 (New Delhi) & the 3GPP LTE India Workshop (Chennai)

The spectrum auctions in the 2.1GHz band (3G) and the 2.3GHz band (BWA) have helped to create great interest in the LTE India conference and a dedicated 3GPP LTE Workshop.

3GPP presentations to over 500 participants included an overview of the standards as well as detailed presentations on radio aspects and core network evolution.

One of the key topics at both events was whether LTE is set to overtake 3G services in India, with one Operator CTO declaring “It is the right time for LTE in India”

Another popular discussion was on the prospects for TD-LTE, as India seriously considers becoming the second country to plan for a roll out of that variant of the LTE standard.

The purpose of 3GPP participation at both events was to spot-light 3GPP specifications and to raise awareness of the stability and World-wide commitment to LTE.

Planning for a future workshop in Bangalore is now underway, as interest and commitment to LTE grows in the worlds’ second largest market.
