4G Device Availability and Costs are Improving Rapidly, but Constraints on Market Growth Still Remain
"4G device adoption is likely to grow quickly in emerging Asia–Pacific, but there are still constraints on devices that support LTE using certain high- and low-band frequency combinations, TD-LTE and, in particular, VoLTE."

Operators in emerging Asia–Pacific (EMAP) must help to grow LTE device penetration in order to make best use of LTE network investments. In prepaid-dominated markets, there are a number of strategies that operators can use to drive LTE device penetration in order to overcome specific device supply challenges.

This report:

- assesses how quickly take-up of 4G-capable handsets will increase across the EMAP region, and explores the limitations to this growth
- examines the limitations on device availability for different frequency bands used in the EMAP region (for example, LTE in the 700MHz and 850MHz bands)
- discusses the potential for a greater supply of TD and FDD-LTE multi-mode handsets
- considers how operators can drive take-up of 4G smartphones that are compatible with their networks.

KEY QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN THIS REPORT
- How quickly will take-up of 4G-capable handsets increase across the EMAP region, and what are the limitations to this growth?
- What are the limitations on device availability for different frequency bands used in the EMAP region (for example, LTE in the 700 and 850MHz bands)?
- What potential is there for greater supply of TD and FDD-LTE multi-mode handsets?
- How can operators drive the take-up of 4G smartphones that are compatible with their networks?

WHO SHOULD READ THIS REPORT
- Operator strategy executives seeking to understand how the handset market will evolve and how operators can drive smartphone take-up to boost data revenue.
- Operator network executives seeking to understand the potential constraints on handset take-up and how this will affect network investment.
- Handset vendors aiming to establish the technical requirements for handsets from operators in the EMAP region.
