Abstract

This paper mainly looks at the different deployment schemes and rollout plans of UMTS and WLAN in Europe and the type of business models that operators and service providers are adopting. It also analyzes several competing or complementary technologies that could potentially alter the path for further development/deployment of UMTS and WLAN services. More specifically, the paper discusses the technologies of "Voice over IP" (VoIP) and "Mobile over WLAN" through mobile devices, and the quasi-3G technology of EDGE, which could provide some of the same services as UMTS, but at a substantially lower cost.
