Is South East Asia the leading emerging market in terms of LTE opportunities?

Last month Singapore mobile operator MobileOne (M1) announced that it managed to successfully complete a 100 Mbps data call on its trial LTE (Long Term Evolution) network. According to the operator, this made it the first South Asian operator to achieve the milestone while using commercial LTE hardware and software.
LTE is rapidly becoming a hot technology even in emerging markets, and one of the most promising is that of South East Asia. HSPA networks have been deployed in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, and LTE is the next step for operators to deliver better, faster mobile broadband services. That is why this year's South East Asia Com congress (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 20-21 July) will include a whole focus day on LTE.
The session will offer a comprehensive programme of presentations, case studies and discussions. Leading operators and industry players across the ecosystem (including Indar Atmanto, President Director of PT Indosat Mega Media, Indonesia) will share their experience and expertise on how to drive the broadband leadership towards revenue growth in the LTE space.
Key topics include:
- Status Of Next Generation Fixed & Wireless Broadband In Asia Pacific
- Exploring LTE Opportunities For Implementing Next Generation Services & Creating A Successful Business Case For LTE
- Examining LTE Standards, Spectrum Allocation Challenges & Evolution Paths For LTE Development
- Uncovering The Full Commercial Potential of LTE Through New Revenue Streams
- Evaluating Deployment Strategies, Challenges & Timescales In Planning LTE Network & System Architecture
- Paving The Way Towards 4G Vision In South East Asia
We are still looking for case studies and presentations for this session, so don't hesitate to get in touch for more information.
