LTE Profit Mantras

  (July 07, 2014)

LONDON, July 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- has added a new market research report:

LTE Profit Mantras

"LTE Profit Mantras is a tribute to TRL for its unique management vision of endeavouring to deliver what its clienteleactually look for Progressive ARPUs leading towards greater profits via NGN technologies, in particular LTE/ LTEAdvanced." Analysts team, TeleResearch Labs 1.0 Executive Summary Profits That's what this research intends to deliver to as many mobile operators, infrastructure providers and devicemanufacturers as possible, worldwide. Mantras (Vedic chants) Not for any religious pursuits, but aimed solely towards realising profits. You might be startled to know that the road to LTE Profits could be absurdly simple. So, what's the unique charm of LTE Profit Mantras? The purpose of our Report is to ensure profits from your LTE ambitions, but the solutions we propose aresimple and not complex, as you might think. But again Mind that LTE isn't for every operator out there, as of now. However, when you do move to LTE,how you do so could well decide whether you would continue to exist in business or not. We tell you how youwould. Our study covers all 3 sets of mobile operators Those who are currently in the planning/ execution stages ofLTE; those who have already launched LTE networks; and even those who haven't yet given LTE any seriousthoughts. Our experts have prioritised the various approaches required to be adopted by each set ofoperators and presented prototypes to help guide them in a manner that not only would possibly ensureoptimum monetisation, but enable doing so in simplified ways. As a mobile network operator you might have everything going for you a great network, various device & serviceofferings, a substantial customer base, sufficient quantity & quality of spectrum etc. Enough, you might feel, to make aconsistent headway to a profitable next 4 years. However, this isn't 2010, when LTE networks just started to bud. Thetelecoms industry is at possibly its most crucial phase this year, when what the operators, infrastructure providers anddevice makers do or plan would decide if they actually manage to stay in business or not forget about monetisingLTE networks. In a time where consumer loyalty changes faster than the blink of an eye, compounded with thedisruptive scenario of takeovers and mergers during last 18 months, survival comes before you even think of profits.Contrary to what many might believe, there's been a significant shift in consumer psychology in recent times - Whatwe found over the course of our research and various consumer surveys was that in many geographies more so inemerging markets like South-East Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America, people crave mobile telephonysolutions that are easy for them to understand, particularly keeping in mind the vast demographical challenges ofsuch areas. Even in developed markets like North America and Western Europe, where 'affordability' might notalways be an issue, people are 'downshifting' it's like they have been exposed to an overdose of technology and nowthe high-tech charm has rubbed off. 'Low-tech' is what they are looking for. To put it in a different way LTE issupposed to make people's lives simpler, right? That's what many operators and vendors seemingly fail to understand. When you have made/ are thinking of 'mass investing' in regards to LTE wouldn't you want to 'mass customise' it as well? And for that you need to focus on users' 'needs' rather than 'desires'.
