Putting the mobile Internet to the test

During CommunicAsia2012, I had the chance to speak with Nigel V. Wright and Gene Zhang of Spirent Communications about the face of things to come as countries in Asia begin rolling out 4G LTE networks.

Wright is the Vice President for Wireless Product Marketing & Corporate Marketing at Spirent, while Zhang is the VP & General Manager for Asia Pacific at the company.

Spirent is a global provider of performance analysis and service assurance solutions that enable the development and deployment of next-generation networking technologies.With LTE rollouts in Asia-Pacific now progressing at an aggressive pace, and the region set to surpass 120 million LTE connections by 2015, operators are competing to become the first to offer 4G services in this high-growth subscriber market.

SingTel, for instance, had just officially launched its 4G LTE services in Singapore this month.

Wright delivered a presentation during CommunicAsia2012 about the future of LTE in Asia, providing insights on:

  • The major concerns that operators face in implementing LTE.
  • The potential pitfalls in IMS/VoLTE deployment.
  • The challenges and solutions in deploying VoLTE.
  • How mobile devices can be designed to ensure that costly, inconvenient fixes are not required after device deployment.
