LTE Deployment Dilemma

Couple of weeks back I presented a small quiz in the final session of our Cambridge Wireless Small Cells SIG event. The first part of the quiz was titled “LTE Deployment Dilemma”. I have now done a more detailed writeup of that and Cisco has kindly published it in their SP Mobility Blog. I am interested in hearing what others think. Since this message is being posted in multiple groups and forums, I would encourage everyone to let their views be known at the original post site.

With so many different possibilities and options available to the operators for deployments it is necessary that the planning is done in such a way as…

Having personally been highly involved with the 1st GSM, 2G, 3G and 4G rollouts; one would think the problems would be solved after 15+ years. This is not the case!
Mainly I see two issues with LTE which are severely overlooked: (There are more!)
1. Scale-ability, current implementations of 3G under-estimated the saturation of users.
Now there are many 4G areas that cannot provide adequate coverage due to active population growth.
2. Total bandwidth available will not handle the near-future requirements. 2 million new users were added the first weekend the new iPad came out, just as an example. More and more people are using the internet to stream video, view online data and cloud sharing uploads/downloads, just to name a few resource hungry apps.
