LTE - the Global Opportunity - UMTS Forum Report
The UMTS Forum have made their latest Report - LTE Mobile Broadband Ecosystem: the Global Opportunity available for free download

The report presents a positive picture of LTE’s transformation of the global market for mobile broadband. The UMTS Forum web site promises that "This unique study offers detailed analysis and insight into key issues shaping tomorrow’s mobile broadband ecosystem. It also explores key success factors, enablers, challenges and risk factors that will determine the global market success of 3G LTE (Long Term Evolution)....

The UMTS Forum Web site continues:

"The study is based on over 30 interviews by Ovum with operators, vendors, regulators and standards bodies, plus end user research with 550 respondents in the US, Korea, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, the UK and Spain. It considers both consumer and enterprise market segments, as well as vertical markets that will benefit from the deployment of LTE.

Gauging levels of readiness in the industry as a whole, the report also provides a series of recommendations to operators, vendors and regulators that will help promote successful LTE deployments. A significant first step in understanding the critical enablers for LTE, the report is intended to serve as the foundation for further studies by the UMTS Forum.

Offering major enhancements in speed, capacity and support for new services, LTE will dominate the global market for mobile broadband over the next few years. Designed for all-IP traffic, LTE supports a flatter, more efficient network architecture that allows operators to reduce their long term capex and opex. In parallel with this, LTE allows operators to deliver a more compelling, service-rich mobile broadband user experience for consumers and business customers alike.

LTE will enhance many existing services while enabling new ones. In this new environment, non-voice mobile services – including real-time video, P2P content sharing and social networking – will be increasingly important. This evolution from a ‘traditional’ mobile ecosystem to embrace new internet-based applications, devices and content delivery mechanisms will see the emergence of a broader ecosystem than for any previous mobile technology.

LTE will be characterised by a complex ecosystem that includes not only operators, infrastructure providers, terminal vendors, standard bodies and regulators, but also chipset manufacturers, application developers, content platform providers and consumer electronics vendors. Supported by a healthy ecosystem, LTE will also see the emergence of dynamic new business models not hitherto seen in the mobile space."
