4G Brings New Opportunities

English: LTE logo
Next-generation LTE technology has been making its presence felt across the Asia Pacific region as mobile
operators progressively roll out commercial services.At present, LTE services are largely limited to
USB modems due to a lack of compatible mobile devices. However, we expect the situation to begin
changing in 2012, and the large-scale launch of 4G smartphones and tablet computers should herald a new
generation of mobile VAS.

Besides services such as video streaming and video conferencing, the machine-to-machine (M2M) market
could be one area that could receive more attention from Asian companies following the launch of LTE
services. M2M technologies refer to the ability of different devices to communicate and relay information.
They can be used in areas such as smart utility metering, ehealth, telematics and digital billboards, and
Western European mobile operators and M2M vendors have been actively developing the market to pursue
greater adoption.The Philippines' Globe Telecom launched its first M2M service - a GPS vehicle tracking system - in 2008 and expanded its portfolio further in August 2011 to encompass monitoring of fixed assets, surveillance and security, as well as tracking of various objects ranging from vending machines to tanks.
