Agenda at a Glance
Expanding the LTE boundaries
While LTE deployments are still a challenge for operators, the increasing adoption of LTE devices is pushing the industry to deliver new answers. Increased traffic and customer expectations are driving solutions such as LTE-A, FDD/TDD convergence with carrier aggregation and adaptive antenna system implementations.
In this LTE & Backhaul session, operators and vendors will share their experiences and solutions to effectively drive this innovation road, with the 5G destination in the horizon.
Telco and the Road to 5G
The mobile network is under pressure to meet the demands of growing smartphones and data usage, but also enterprise applications and the internet of everything.
We’ll cover the transformation to a Telco Cloud – an agile, customer-centric platform for service innovation. A combination of service provider, analyst and vendor perspectives combined with real-world learning will explore where to start, what applications will deliver the best ROI, and what services will create value for your customers. From SDN in the access network, to data center evolution, and NFV for service creation, this session will prepare you for a telco cloud architecture and the road to 5G.
