what's necessary on the consumer hardware side?
Does this tech require new hardware for consumer devices? I've read that LTE-U spectrum could effectively double the bandwidth that wireless carriers can offer -- though unreliably because of interference issues. If every carrier starts using this, the benefits might not be as impressive.

Re: Ericsson & LTE-U
The Wi-Fi ecosystem is here to stay, but the role of the carriers is what I question for the same reasons you outlined.

Re: Ericsson & LTE-U
WiFi weakens a carriers abiity to monitize data/application useage so it's a slam dunk the'll support this.  Only the realities of consumer acceptance, device support and cost to deploy this technology could get in the way.

Re: Ericsson & LTE-U
aside for the fact that non-LTE devices pretty much use Wi-Fi as the standard connectivity package, which will be a barrier for LTE-U on those device classes. I never understood why carriers have been investing in Wi-Fi instead of something like this in the LTE family, which uses the same infrastructure, and really only needs incremental RF costs.

Ericsson & LTE-U
More traction for LTE-U today: Ericsson announced a $2,000 device that it will incorporate to Radio Dot for LTE-U at the small cell level. I think we'll see the most traction for the technology in small cells like this.
