Pyramid Research projects that the mobile broadband market worldwide will reach 1 billion connections during 2012, segmented by 3G and 4G network technologies. Around the world, mobile operators would invest billions in the spectrum and network infrastructure to deploy 4G networks, but are coping to keep pace with 3G data traffic growth driven by the use of smart phones, USB dongles, as well as bandwidth-intensive video content and applications.

According to a special report from Heavy Reading and Pyramid Research, these challenges require a transaction-based business case that permits them to more fully monetize the broadband traffic generated by mobile internet services, content, and applications. Senior Consultant for Heavy Reading, and Director of 4G Consulting Practice, Berge Ayvazian says, "Operators planning to deploy 4G networks face many technical, strategic, and business complexities in how to manage their network evolution and critical questions on how to get a return on their investments."
