Long term evolution will gain traction after 2012 with forecast connections of over 300 million in 2015, according to Ovum.

 A point of focus is China Mobile, which is collaborating with Verizon and Vodafone to plan large-scale network trials and end-to-end service commercialization tests of TD-LTE.
