LTE Asia event in Singapore will focus on strides in emerging markets, including India

Singapore, September 4 2014: Mobile operators across Asia are continuing to invest heavily in their LTE networks in order to provide this important region (which accounts for 60% of the world’s population) with faster and more efficient internet connections.

This year’s 9th Annual LTE Asia conference and exhibition provides a  timely platform  for stakeholders to discuss key technical issues, opportunities, and regulatory & licensing challenges facing operators from these emerging countries. Speakers from markets including India, Bangladesh, Philippines and Thailand  will lead the discussions.

A report by Analysis Mason finds that  India, Malaysia and Vietnam are the leaders in this market with the highest number of LTE Networks planned and in development. Operators in India and Malaysia are also planning to launch TD-LTE networks.

For the first time ever, this year’s event will include a dedicated ‘Emerging Markets Focus Session’ which will allow delegates to hear from these key operators who are implementing the latest developments and creating the latest trends in this market.  The session will take place on Day Two of the conference and will begin with a case study by Faisal Mobarak, Asst. General Manager, Network Operations Cente, Ollo Wireless Internet. Mobarak will discuss the successful launch of LTE footprints in Bangladesh, particularly looking at the overcoming of technical challenges in the migration from WiMax to LTE and the deployment of LTE for fixed services.

“I would like to meet the operators in the region and share their experiences and knowledge on deploying LTE networks” says  Anuradha Udunuwara, Engineer, Sri Lanka Telecom

LTE Asia will take place at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore, on 23-25 September 2014
