A smooth transition from Wimax to LTE with dual-mode devices

Wimax operators that have decided to move to LTE face a wide range of options in how to transition to the new technology, and how quickly to do so—in terms of both RAN equipment and subscriber devices.

In this white paper Senza Fili Consulting explore issues faced by Wimax operators planning to move to LTE and evaluating its device strategy.

A total cost of ownership model illustrates the implications of different ways to time the transition by employing different combinations of single-mode (Wimax or LTE) and dual-mode devices (Wimax and LTE), and quantifies the impact on infrastructure capex and opex and on device replacement costs.
