Multiple Options but no Clear Winner for Voice and SMS over LTE - Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth!

Published: 7 Dec 2009

Despite the growth of LTE commitments worldwide, several pending issues exist: lack of support for voice and Short Message Services (SMS), incremental costs for backhaul capacity to support LTE data traffic, lack of sufficient spectrum allocation (a minimum of 20MHz) and a consensus of a globally harmonized frequency band for LTE deployment. Frost & Sullivan believes that the primary focus should be on the lack of support for voice and SMS services over LTE as it currently constitutes nearly 85 percent of global mobile service revenues. This research service focuses on multiple options for industry players to resolve this issue so operators do not risk deploying LTE networks without the promised cost-per-bit efficiency of LTE technology.
