Top-12 Wireless Broadband Challenges

Here's a link to an interesting post that has recently been published on Wireless Week by Manish Sing of Continuous Computing on the top challenges LTE faces in the years to come. In the post he goes into the details of the different topics and it's a great read! Here's an overview of the topics he sees that will have to be sorted out as we go forward:

  • Spectrum harmonization
  • Voice over LTE
  • Cell sizes, from femto to macro
  • Backhaul
  • Self Organizing Networks
  • Security
  • Devices and Terminals
  • Traffic Management
  • Flat Rate plans
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Interoperability
  • Running several networks simultaneously

One thing I would like to point out is that these topics are not LTE specific. Whether an operator first goes down the HSPA+ path and only then starts thinking about LTE or goes straight to LTE, the questions and the issues are the same, just the answers might be a bit different. In other words, whatever mobile operators decide to do, the basic challenges are the same, with our without LTE.
