LTE MENA 2015 was celebrated for its fifth year and it hosted different speakers from operators and vendors in the region to discuss the latest improvements in the LTE arena.
Middle East telcos, such as Etisalat and du, are working towards increased network capacity, improved QoS for consumers and better monetisation of new and current services. Speakers from the companies gathered to share their point of views during the panel sessions.
Telcos are concerned about how to monetise LTE, after the investment that they made when enhancing their network and acquiring the license. Some companies demand free licenses to promote the investment in the network so that operators can monetise its investment easier.
Vendors are also providing their vision on how to include LTE in the 5G ecosystem that is still under research and aims to be standardised by the end of next year.
