Re: Race to 5G
SachinEE, 

By when 5G starts rolling out you will see the profit. As I said, if you are a network operator you will not want to stay behind. IoT is only becoming bigger and everything will have to be put in place in order to adapt. Or follow the dinosaurs. 

As for IoT, with 50 billion connected things by 2020 it will be hard to ignore.

Re: Race to 5G
"The idea of introducing 4.5G by 2016 is great and maybe I would expect Huawei to speed up a little its 5G to win the first position. "

@Susan: I don't see the profit in embracing 5G IOT networks because IOT is still a harsh place to tread on because of its numerous standards. If they can make malleable standards for mobile networks as well as IOT networks then I'm seeing a major growth in this sector.

Re: 4G first....
I heard that IOT systems were getting a major boost in 5G because IOT systems are already being developed as 5G ready and since Huawei has said that 4.5G would be crucial in IOT bridging networks then the architecture of IOT has to be back compatible and compatible with 5G and 4.5G networks alike.

Re: 4G first....
With regard to business models, Huawei says this is to deliver more bandwidth to match up with  end-user demand and to provide low latency for IoT.  So, better servicing the existing business model and addressing a new one. The Huawei people were citing some big forecast numbers for IoT, but some were also saying there's a bottleneck in lack of readiness by verticals.

Re: Race to 5G
Actually what Huawei is building in Russia is something like 4.6G. A Chinese standard that may see adoptions in Russia and Africa. Beside, Huawei and ZTE equipment are banned in the US(Softbank agreed to specially remove all Chinese equipment from Sprint's network when it won the takeover approval.), so Chinese developments have no effects in the US.

 

The US and EU are going with Samsung's 5G standard, which is serviced at 28 Ghz band.

Race to 5G
The idea of introducing 4.5G by 2016 is great and maybe I would expect Huawei to speed up a little its 5G to win the first position. 

As for operators, well, they have some time to do some strategic planning. Who would want to stay out of the 5G game, after all?

4G first....
That's all great stuff, but do the operators have any business plans that might go with '4.5G'?

 

I want to see the operators really turn LTE and LTE-A into business enablers first.
