4G Wireless - From 2008 to 2014: LTE, UMB, HSPA+, WiMAX and 802.20” is an assessment of the market opportunity for these evolving wireless platforms through 2014. The study juxtaposes the relative strengths and weaknesses of these technologies to create quantitative and qualitative assessments of the role each technology will play in the future. The study examines drivers for network upgrades and the technologies that will be used to improve network performance including MIMO, error correction, OFDMA, scheduling and modulation, among others.

Status, major attributes and expected deployment dates are provided for each 4G technology. Shipments and revenues for LTE, UMB, 802.20, WiMAX and HSPA+ handset/user devices, femtocells and base stations are given. Also provided are WCDMA, HSPA, CDMA and CDMA EV-DO users and devices. Global base station deployments and wireless world subscribers are given through 2014 as are subscribers and service revenues for each 4G technology.

Questions Addressed:

- When will 3.5G and 4G be deployed?
- Will HSPA+ delay LTE deployments?
- Can 802.16e make a mark in the mobile space?
- Why will carriers deploy OFDM platforms?
