India's Reliance Communications is moving towards LTE to meet growing customer demands for higher data speed. 3G is no longer enough. However, Reliance, like all telcos, can't know for sure what future customer requirements will be exactly, and so has to be ready to meet all possible demands. This means purchasing network equipment with at least five years lifespan and looking at NFV to virtualise services on suitable hardware. It also means closer links with key vendor partners to benefit from the latest industry developments and knowledge.
