Who's Going to Win the LTE Race?

    1. Huawei has oppened offices close to all of Ericsson’s major research centers in Sweden (Stockholm, Gothenburg and Lund). Nothing wrong with that, that’s how things work nowadays. I’m sure both Ericsson and Cisco have research centers in China… so it goes both ways.

  1. None of this is “technically” 4G since you need to provide 100 megabits bandwidth. The new FiOS from Big Red offers 150 Mb down but that is hardwired fiber optics with proven bandwidth of 10 Gb shared among every 32 homes connected via a passive PON device on your block.
    Why can’t wireless approach these speeds already?, it is certainly possible on paper anyway. It must be cost or the industry pulling an old IBM trick where they milk the latest technology for every dime they can get while they already have far superior technology running in their labs.
    One thing is for certain, when it comes to greed, the telecoms, banks and insurance companies are equals who have there hands so far down your pockets you know they all must moonlight as TSA workers.

  2. Good summary Om.
    The market share chart of LTE contracts is misleading. The number of contracts is not as relevant as the volume of business.
    Huawei has won a lot of small deals. It is Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson who are behind Verizon and AT&T LTE networks. Measured by volume, Ericsson would come first, probably followed by Alcatel-Lucent.
