CEMA Status and Prospects of 4G LTE Deployments in 2016

CEMA Status and Prospects of 4G LTE Deployments in 2016

In this IDC Insight, we provide an update on the state of 4G network deployments across the CEMA region, including in the former Soviet Republics of Belarus, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine. Throughout the document, 4G refers to mobile networks and services based on LTE technology. Given the heterogeneity of the region in terms of the spectrums used for running LTE networks, the sub-region-specific characteristics are examined to describe the challenges faced by mobile operators in individual markets. This includes the availability of spectrum suitable for 4G, the availability of 4G-enabled devices, and the process of determining marketing and pricing strategies. An analysis of existing and planned 4G networks is provided, along with an overview of expected spectrum licensing in CEMA. The closing section of this IDC Insight discusses the future development of 4G in the region and provides guidance for mobile operators.
