Deployments stepping up: 916 million subscribers expected in 2017
IDATE provides regular analyses of the main trends shaping the world’s mobile markets: networks, devices and services. Our Mobile team have teamed up to publish the new edition of its special White Paper: “LTE 2013 - Markets & Trends” to coincide with the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (25-28 February 2013).
LTE is gaining momentum: IDATE predicts that, by 2017, there will be a total of 916 million LTE subscriptions.
• We expect that, by the end of 2013, a significant portion of LTE devices will support both FDD and TDD duplex modes. TD-LTE deployments in India, China and many other countries in the Asia-Pacific, Latin American, and Middle East regions and, to a lesser extent, Europe will fuel this growth.
• We anticipate that more than 80% of LTE devices will also support 3G and, in most cases, 2G in 2014.
• A limited number of LTE devices will support Mobile WiMAX in order to facilitate smooth transition for operators switching to TD-LTE.
