Etisalat Group : LTE is the Future for Indian Broadband
If Amaru Chavez, Group Chief Technology at Etisalat, is to be believed, then the future of the Indian Internet backbone seems much better.
“LTE is faster, newer and more efficient than other technologies and has a clear roadmap to enable almost unlimited capacity. Consumer demand for broadband services and capacity continues to accelerate and only technologies which are scalable will be able to support the future demand for online content such as video, social media, gaming and business services.”
“LTE is an optimum solution to provide high speed broadband connectivity in high density areas, such as cities and commercial hubs. It is a proven technology that is capable of providing highly reliable and secure connectivity which delivers a superior experience for the consumer and business alike. It is also faster to deploy than fiber and future proofed to ensure long term return for investors,” Chavez continued.
Amaru Chavez said: “Wireless broadband has been an enormous success in many of our countries, particularly in the UAE, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. We are now deploying LTE in Saudi Arabia and the UAE to ensure that our services continue to meet the ever increasing demands of our customers. Etisalat is a long-term investor and we are committed to supporting the development of the telecoms sector in each country which we are present.”
