Research and Markets: LTE CAPEX & OPEX Strategies 2014-2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lwnx8k/lte_capex_and) has announced the addition of the "LTE CAPEX & OPEX Strategies 2014-2018" report to their offering.

Till 2012, major LTE investments were limited to a small number of operators in North America, Japan and South Korea. However, LTE investments have now started taking place in other parts of the world also and the same trend will continue over the next five years as operators across the globe are now unanimous about the potential of LTE as a preferred option to deal with the future demand of mobile data services.

As the roll out of an LTE network involves huge investments, it is posing really complex challenges for network operators. One of the major challenges for them is to prioritise the investments areas and decide the amount of capital allocation into various parts and phases of their LTE networks. Moreover, it is equally important for LTE enablers such as network infrastructure vendors and device manufacturers to properly recognise the current and future LTE market structure and offer appropriate solutions which can justify the operators' costs and revenues.

This Report endeavors to serve as a quick reference on key areas of LTE such as investment optimisation strategies, CAPEX and OPEX categorisation, various LTE deployment strategies, LTE technology trends - TDD/ FDD, developments in LTE-Advanced, and the propositions of various LTE enablers.

The Report also covers key forecasts on LTE CAPEX, growth of LTE Base Stations, Small Cells Backhaul CAPEX, Backhaul OPEX, and the uptake of LTE/ LTE-Advanced. These crucial forecasts will greatly help the various stakeholders of LTE in opportunity spotting, strategic planning and roadmapping for the next five years.

The consumption economy is here and so are cloud applications and solutions that offer more than subscription and flat fee models and at the same time are available on a pure consumption model, which not only reduces IT spend but also lowers infrastructure costs, and offers ease of use and availability. In their session at 15th Cloud Expo, Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, and Ian Khan, Global Strategic Positioning & Brand Manager at Solgenia, discussed this shifting dynamic with an ...
Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...
Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...
