It’s funny how things go sometimes. Just yesterday I’ve crowned my day as the day of LTE – not because of any special reason, but simply because I bumped into too many LTE related posts in the blogosphere.
Here are the interesting ones:
- It all started in the morning, when Andy Abramson coined LTE as Long Term Excuses.
- It brought me to Dean Bubley’s blog – a new blog I now added to my reading list. There I found two interesting posts relating to LTE: The problems of QoS for LTE voice and Dean’s thoughts after an LTE conference he attended.
- For some reason, I went back to a post by Stacey Higginbotham from GigaOm about her pessimism of LTE deployments coming anytime soon.
- And then there was Frost and Sullivan’s optimistic mobile VoIP research. This one doesn’t say too much about LTE, but it will probably require LTE to get there.
- There was also a Talk Standards post about the many problems of LTE standardization.
I ended up the day with two LTE videos on YouTube: A ridiculous one that shows too many happy people using mobile data flawlessly, and another one, a REALLY good one from NSN, which explains what LTE is.
After all that LTE, I almost forgot that two ( ! ) – my roommates at work, along with another colleague of mine, are going to give a webinar tomorrow, where LTE and IMS are the topics.
It seems like there are over 1,000 registrants for this webinar already, and after peaking into the content I must say that there’s good reason for that: while the post links above may seem pessimistic, I do believe that sooner or later LTE will come to market. It is going to take two years or more for LTE to happen, but the investments in software developments need to take place or it won’t happen at all. And here’s exactly where our webinar comes – it’s about what LTE is, what opportunities and challenges it brings and what technologies offer solutions to it.
So if you are interested in LTE, make sure to register to our LTE/IMS webinar.
