4G Wireless Evolution - LTE Trials Pick up Speed as Networks Around the World Get Ready for 4G

Developers have been touting Long Term eEolution (LTE (News - Alert)), worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) and 4G for sometime now without delivering goods. But, that scenario is expected to change soon as service providers and operators begin serious trials. According to market research firm ABI Research, Verizon (News - Alert) in the United States and DoCoMo in Japan will begin wide-scale roll-outs by the end of 2010. As a result, 2011 will be the year when LTE goes live in a big way, reported ABI Research analyst Bhavya Khanna.

“132 networks have reported trials or plans to launch LTE commercially, 32 more than the end of 2009. Verizon has also hinted at the availability of LTE-based handsets by May 2011,” said Khanna.
