LTE in Unlicensed Spectrum and LTE/Wi-Fi Aggregation: Technical Options and Business Models - Spectrum Availability May Fail to Keep Pace with Mobile Traffic Growth

12 Nov, 2015, 16:10 ET from Research and Markets

DUBLIN, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/26dg6n/lte_in_unlicensed) has announced the addition of the "LTE in Unlicensed Spectrum and LTE/Wi-Fi Aggregation: Technical Options and Business Models " report to their offering.

"Operators can provide increased capacity and speed to localised sites where there is a high level of traffic and limited spectrum availability by using either LTE in unlicensed spectrum or a combination of LTE and Wi-Fi."

This report considers the options available to operators for providing improved capacity and high peak speeds using unlicensed spectrum.

We consider the utilisation of two basic sets of technologies:

- Both LTE and Wi-Fi through aggregation (where LTE and Wi-Fi flows are combined), or Wi-Fi for the downlink and LTE for the uplink - LTE in unlicensed spectrum, most likely in the 5GHz band initially.

The report is based on several sources, including:

- Internal research

- Interviews with stakeholders in markets for LTE in unlicensed spectrum, as well as LTE Wi-Fi aggregation equipment.

Key Questions Answered In This Report

- What are the technical capabilities for systems that use LTE in unlicensed spectrum, compared with those that combine LTE and Wi-Fi?

- What are the hardware requirements for systems that use LTE in unlicensed spectrum, compared with those that combine LTE and Wi-Fi and what implications will this have for the equipment's time to market?

- How can operators best monetise the launch of LTE in unlicensed spectrum, as well as systems that combine LTE with Wi-Fi?

- Which technology option should vendors target primarily?

Who Needs to Read this Report

- Operator marketing teams that need information on how best to launch commercial offers that use LTE in unlicensed spectrum, or combine LTE and Wi-Fi.

- Operator strategy teams that want to understand the potential of each technology option and the ease with which they can be launched.

- Vendor strategy teams that require guidance on which of the technology options seem most promising for attracting new operator customers.

- Device manufacturers that want to identify the potential features and technologies that their latest products can support.
