Most of the world’s people are wirelessly connected. Most of the world’s things soon will be. But, as technologies develop and needs change the challenge for all operators is to build a coherent, viable and coordinated response. Are you ready?
Mobile user numbers are set to grow as not just people but things become connected. At the same time more people are using more mobile devices — and often for high bandwidth services. Mobile operators are under pressure; spectrum usage and acquisition, business models, marketing approaches and network assets strategy are all major concerns. What traffic trends are likely in the coming years? What applications and devices will receive the most attention from end users? What are the implications for operators of the Internet of Things (IoT)? Will more spectrum become available? Should you deploy a hybrid network strategy? And what roles should small cells, Wi-Fi, NFV, C-RAN and MEC play?
How Real Wireless can help
Members of our team have come to Real Wireless with years of experience undertaking planning, policy and strategy for operators, vendors, regulators and research organisations. Among the services we have offered operators to date are detailed assessment of spectrum usage and availability, analysis of business and marketing strategy, comprehensive network assets strategy, and advice on the refarming of existing spectrum, the acquisition of new spectrum, and capacity and coverage enhancements for an existing network. We have also assembled statistics on mobile data traffic and trends in mobile applications and devices in order to construct a robust case for additional spectrum to accommodate the strong growth in mobile broadband services, and worked with a Europe-wide project supporting spectrum strategy development
As everyone and everything become connected, you need independent advice and support to build a strategy that will deliver what end users want in a way that also benefits and builds on your business or service. You need to be ready.
