THE NETHERLANDS: LTE leaders from around the globe will gather this June for the world’s leading 4G LTE event, LTE World Summit . As 4G LTE networks drive mobile data capabilities and the delivery of services that mobile has been envisioning for years, the event provides the perfect platform for visitors to explore the future of LTE and the growth opportunity it presents.
Now in its ninth year, the conference and exhibition intends to address several key themes; Service Innovation; LTE Roaming and Spectrum Management, Hetnets; Handling the Mobile Data Explosion; Monetising LTE; Voice and Device Developments; LTE-Advanced; and Network Optimisation.
These themes are echoed by a stellar speaker line-up that will give visitors exclusive insight into understanding the future of LTE and the opportunities that exist within the ecosystem.
Day one will see Erik Hoving, chief Strategy, Innovation and Technology officer at KPN Group, deliver a conference welcome that explores LTE within The Netherlands. This will be followed by Dr. Jae W. Byun, CTO at SK Telecom, South Korea, who will focus on first mover perspectives, and a panel discussion that addresses ‘diversifying business models and optimising content delivery with digital innovation’.
Hoving says: “We officially launched LTE in the Netherlands on 4 February, just six weeks after the end of the 800 MHz auction. We’re in the middle of a huge roll-out scheme in the Netherlands, increasing coverage every week. The LTE World Summit is a valuable opportunity for us to get together with other leading operators to exchange frank views on LTE.”
