A quick clar­i­fi­ca­tion

Electronics For You - - TECHNOLOGY -

1. Go­ing strictly by ITU’s IMT-Ad­vanced def­i­ni­tion, only LTE-Ad­vanced (Re­leases 10 and 11) and WiMAX 2.0 (IEEE 802.16m) can be con­sid­ered as 4G ser­vices. These are not yet op­er­a­tional any­where in the world. We can ex­pect to see the first de­ploy­ments only by the year-end or in 2013. Coun­tries like In­dia, China, Ja­pan and Brazil have de­ployed LTE (Re­leases 8 and 9) in re­cent months. Many play­ers in the tele­com in­dus­try tend to ac­cept this as 4G as it uses multi-car­rier OFDM tech­nol­ogy and can be con­sid­ered a ma­jor jump in tech­nol­ogy and user/op­er­a­tor ex­pe­ri­ence.
