Spectrum is viewed as a key asset for the development of mobile broadband (MBB) and Cellular Internet of Things (C-IoT). Both high and low frequency bands play a key role for boosting the adoption of LTE (Long Term Evolution) across the world. In 2012 3GPP has successfully included APT700 band – corresponding to TV channels from 52 to 69 – (3GPP R11 band 28 for FDD mode and 3GPP R11 band 44 for TDD mode) into the list of LTE frequencies as per APT (Asia-Pacific Telecommunity, a cross-governments organization among APAC countries to deal with spectrum policies) and ITU official agreements in 2010/11.
This white paper is an in-depth look at the APT 700 opportunity globally.
