Engineers Guide to WiMAX & LTELTE Momentum Building - Key Rollout Issues RemainAnnual Industry Guide Solutions for engineers and designers developing WiMAX and LTE technologies and platformswww.eecatalog.com/4GEECatalogWiMax Celebrates 10 Years with Strong Growth What Makes an Ideal Wireless Stack Developer Tool?Gold SponsorSee where a single stroke of genius can change the course of tomorrow.Calling all thinkers, creators, leaders, dreamers and innovators. Its time to return to the home of unbridled jaw-dropping ideas.Tuesday, January 10Friday, January 13, 2012Las Vegas, Nevada | CESweb.org REGISTER NOWwww.eecatalog.com/4G 1Welcome to the Engineers Guide to WiMAX and LTE Solutions 2012Amidst continuing news of a stagnant economy, spending on mobile and infrastructure keeps on growing, albeit with a few bumps in the road. While the global 2G/3G/4G infrastructure market declined 13.8% in the rst quarter of 2011, that came on the heels of a very strong fourth quarter 2010, and the market is up 14.4% year-over-year (from the rst quarter of 2010), according to Infonetics Research. That sets the foundation for a new investment cycle that is expected to last through 2014. Infonetics Research forecasts service providers will spend a cumulative $245 billion worldwide on mobile infrastructure during the ve years from 2011 to 2015. Thats a lot of opportunity for developers, in a lot of different technologies. Stphane Tral, Infonetics Researchs principal analyst for mobile infra-structure, stated, Although LTE and 4G continue to make the headlines, GSM was denitely the 2Q11 reality, with massive capacity upgrades in China and India. In addition, 2G and 3G network modernization with multi-standard base transceiver stations (BTS) continues to be strong and will remain the main theme throughout the second half of 2011.That said, equipment spending in LTE and WiMAX 4G technologies remains strong, and for the rst time LTE equipment surpassed WiMAX equipment in the second quarter of 2011, with the global LTE market at about $0.6 billion and WiMAX at $0.5 billion.In this issue, youll nd a wide array of product, technology and develop-ment information to help you nd your place in these new 4G markets. We cover development tools and environments in What Makes an Ideal Wireless Stack Developer Tool? and Even Better than the Real Thing. Our panel of experts discusses FPGAs roles in advanced telecom sys-tems, and we address the opportunities for distributed base stations in Taking LTE Where You Need It. CSFB: Supporting Voice Services in LTE Migration provides an option for the transition to LTE, and we look at Secure Communications in Military 4G LTE Environments with an insightful view into that market. Both WiMAX and LTE have plenty to look forward to, and we provide a look into trends and forecasts for both with LTE Momentum Building, Key Rollout Issues Remain and WiMax Celebrates 10 Years with Strong Growth.And theres a lot more from our sponsors, with data sheets, event listings, white papers and other resources.

This growth is being driven by the demand for high-bandwidth devices for 3G and 4G networks. According to the Technavio analyst, In order to meet the growing demand for these devices and applications, the FPGA vendors are focusing on bandwidth- and I/O-centric technologies. As a result, there is a shi
