Industry Overview

High-speed 4G wireless networks are the next big opportunity in the mobile industry. 4G networks are able to provide a comprehensive quadruple IP solution where voice, data and streamed multimedia can be given to users on an "Anytime, Anywhere" basis featuring the full mobility, and at higher data rates than previous generations. 4G is used to describe two primary technologies, Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) and Long Term Evolution (LTE).

WiMAX can provide broadband wireless access (BWA) up to 30 miles (50 km) for fixed stations, and 3 - 10 miles (5 - 15 km) for mobile stations. The primary advantages of the WiMAX standard are to enable the adoption of advanced radio features in a uniform fashion and reduce costs for all the radios made by companies. However, LTE can increase downlink speed up to 100 Mbps whereas uplink peak data rates up to 50 Mbps up form 20 MHz of spectrum.

Mobile operators around the world are also investing billions in the spectrum and network infrastructure to deploy 4G networks, even though most have yet to get a sufficient return on their 3G network investments. In the race to 4G, US mobile operators have been driven by competition to invest in multiple network platforms thus maintaining their legacy infrastructure while deploying new IP-based mobile broadband networks. By 2014, North America 4G subscribers share is expected to be over 45% of the worldwide 4G share.

4G technology is also opening various opportunities for different industries across the world. Such as 4G IPTV platform will support to view live HD TV, in case of Social Networking Services 4G will provide access through a collection of radio interfaces. In same order 4G will benefit a lot of industries like Location Based Services, Telematics, Wireless VoIP, M2M application market etc.

Finally, worldwide 4G subscribers and its service revenue will be showing tremendous growth path. It is anticipated that worldwide 4G subscribers will cross 150 Million by the end of 2013. It is also expected that its worldwide service revenue will grow at a CAGR of 299% for the spanning period of 2009 – 2013.
