It features the spectrum database with details of the regulatory situation and updates on spectrum auctions for than 40 countries.

Key issues

Against a backdrop of pioneer rollouts and recent announcements, several questions emerge on the topic of LTE:
• How do commercial LTE networks perform in the "real world"?
• What LTE commercial deployments are scheduled by Tier1 operators?
• Could LTE accelerate the consolidation of the mobile market?
• Will LTE-Advanced be a game-changer ?
• Which type of operator benefits the most?
• Will LTE accelerate changes in pricing plans for mobile data?
• What are the regulatory constraints for LTE deployment?
• When will VoLTE take-off?
