Russian WiMax pioneer Yota had to turn on LTE networks overnight
Russian mobile operator Yota bravely stepped out with one of the world's first large-scale WiMax networks in 2008. Making the switch to LTE four years later, when the whole world had already signed on to that technology, may have taken even more courage.
That's because Yota had to turn on its first big-city LTE networks without any testing. The carrier is still trying to optimize its networks to gain the speeds it expected from LTE. But it's still committed to the technology.
Vartan Khachaturov, Yota's chief quality officer, described the company's LTE adventure at the Next Generation Mobile Networks conference in San Francisco on Thursday, where carriers and vendors discussed the promise and challenges of LTE, the world's first globally endorsed cellular technology.
