A session at Mobile World Congress 2012

Thursday 1st March, 2012

9:00am to 11:00am (WET)

As mobile operators across the globe upgrade their networks to LTE, the full promise of fast and ubiquitous mobile broadband is becoming a reality. However, as demand for data services continues to grow, it will become increasingly important for operators to deploy technologies which will not only make their networks more intelligent, but also make the best use of their spectrum allocations.Network architectures will need to evolve to reflect both the density of these new networks as well as the increased capacity they will carry. The drive to scale up the deployment of LTE-enabled devices will be just as important, while at the same time LTE Advanced looms large on the horizon with a whole new set of questions and challenges. Which factors will determine the technology investments operators make in the coming years? Can the industry do more to work collaboratively and build greater efficiencies into the R&D and manufacturing process? How will regulation impact the growth of the mobile ecosystem?Join some of the industry’s technology pioneers as they discuss the future of the networks which underpin all that is mobile.
