The time is ripe for TD-LTE

Thursday 25 September 2014 | 16:36 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Mobile operators have a strong preference for paired spectrum over unpaired. This could change though. Due to the limited demand around the world for unpaired spectrum, it is usually available cheaper in spectrum auctions. With the general shortage of mobile frequencies, growing number of connected devices, Wimax operators that want to switch to TD-LTE and the possibilities of carrier aggregation, unpaired spectrum could easily become more in demand. To make use of the frequencies, TD-LTE technology must be adopted.
