4G World 2010 – The Transformative Year

The entire wireless ecosystem is experiencing change at an unprecedented accelerating rate.  Fueled by the explosive growth of the mobile Internet, broadly available content and enabled by ever more powerful mobile devices, wireless operators are faced with the increasing challenges of balancing user expectations and demands and investments in next generation technologies.

This unprecedented growth requires that operators reassess business models and pricing structures as well as reevaluate access and network core capacities.  It also means that operators will need to rethink their network and device management strategies and their customer support systems. The next generation of content, applications and mobility from the office, to the road and the home is being enabled by femtocells and advancements in “connected homeâ€� networks.  Context and location awareness have now become critical elements of the mobile Internet.

To seize the opportunities made possible by 4G networks applications, developers, device manufactures and operators need to collaborate and examine new ways to create and monetize applications and content.  With the advent of broadband enabled mobile Internet, the legacy of operators’ “walled gardensâ€� is giving way to new business model of monetizing the network and its content.  Those who choose to put off change are sure to put off profits.  What are the options and what are the implications?
