Fulfilling the Promise of 4G


Mobile operators continue to invest heavily in high quality, high speed and high capacity 4G networks.  The GSMA estimates that mobile operators around the world will have invested $1.7 trillion developing their 4G networks between 2010 to 2020.

To ensure that operators’ capital spending is as effective as possible, the GSMA is convening a global multi-discipline industry forum focused on ‘reducing the unitary cost per bit’. Open to both operators and equipment suppliers, the forum will improve the capital intensity of mobile networks.

The GSMA has also created specifications and toolsets that make it straightforward for mobile operators to enhance their 4G networks, harness new capabilities and move to a very efficient and flexible All-IP infrastructure.  The GSMA’s goal is to expand 4G coverage and deliver the best experience possible, on any device, anywhere in the world, using network function virtualisation (NFV), software defined networks (SDN), edge computing, LTE Broadcast and other innovative technologies.  Working with the GSMA, operators will be able to make the optimum transition from 4G to 5G.
