Our latest report explores the opportunities that LTE unlicensed offers to mobile operators and how the technology can moving into the 5 GHz band where Wi-Fi dominates and has been an astounding success. Is the performance – and business case – of LTE unlicensed sufficiently better that mobile operators will be willing to roll out LTE unlicensed even though it will require new mobile devices? And what will the 5 GHz ecosystem, dominated by Wi-Fi users, enterprise, and service providers, will accept as fair coexistence from the LTE unlicensed proponents?

Qualcomm Technologies (QTI) was one of the initial proponents of LTE unlicensed, along with vendors such as Ericsson and operators such as Verizon. LTE unlicensed fits well within QTI’ 1000x vision – preparing for a thousand-fold increase in mobile data usage. LTE-U complements parallel efforts to increase wireless capacity with small cells, shared access, and the multiple flavors of Wi Fi – residential, community, hotspot, enterprise, and carrier.

Densification of the network infrastructure with small cells and Wi-Fi is one path that Alcatel-Lucent has pursued over recent years. With the newly announced Wireless Unified Networks, Alcatel-Lucent has moved two steps further, by adding what it calls Cellular Boost with LTE unlicensed, and adding Wi-Fi Boost by closely tying Wi-Fi and cellular transmission.
