Vodafone R&D chief backs LTE, still watching WiMax closely

Mobile Europe
The head of the networks division of Vodafone’s group R&D function has said that LTE is currently the most likely candidate technology to meet the operator’s needs for 4G, but he added that the operator is still watching WiMax “closely” to see if it might still have something to offer. Speaking at the Next Generation Network & Basestations conference in Bath, UK, Trevor Gill said that through its work with other operators in the Next Generation Mobile Network group, Vodafone is currently outlining its demands for any 4G technology – in terms of spectral efficiency, ease of rollout and minimising complexity and cost.
