Spectrum Insight - The 700Mhz band

NEW YORK, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

 

Spectrum Insight - The 700Mhz band

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01497771/Spectrum-Insight---The-700Mhz-band.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Broadband

 

A new harmonised frequency band for LTE?

This insight focuses on the adoption of the APT plan for the 700 MHz band. It summarises the situation of the first and second digital dividends for each geographical area.

 

Will this frequency band be harmonised for LTE services?

Will Europe adopt this plan and associated technical parameters, and take advantage of the device ecosystem?

What's the timeline for commercial LTE network rollouts?

 

Region:

Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle-East, North America

 

The "Spectrum Watch Service" includes:

- An Excel database

- A Status Report

- Quarterly market insights

- Direct access to leading Spectrum analysts
