Make The Right Choices In LTE Strategy
With the explosion in data traffic, driven by SMARTPHONE and Dongle usage, many operators are considering deploying LTE to offer higher data rates and improve user experience. The choices facing them are many and complex: from vendor, features and pricing to compatibility within the existing environment.
The first , of course, is to decide whether LTE is indeed the right choice so a business case needs to be developed. And, as with all technology roll-outs, the need to evaluate the actual end-user performance through a trial is essential. All of the large network equipment vendors have LTE offerings, so the trial would normally include multiple vendors to determine which will fit best technically and commercially.
Once the trial(s) have been successfully completed, it is time to determine the best roll-out strategy and to manage the operational aspects of network build, acceptance and optimisation. When the network roll-out has been completed, it is often desirable to benchmark the network .
MSI have experience of LTE evaluation and deployment of LTE from business plan development, vendor evaluation and feature selection to roll-out, optimisation and benchmarking. So, whatever stage you are at with LTE, we are confident that we have the breadth and depth of knowledge to help you succeed.
