An extract article from On Wireless 13
LTE technology can be developed in less than 12 months with careful use of existing modules by applying ‘Agile’ techniques and using a good set of partners.
3GPP LTE is set to become the major wireless broadband global standard. It is a preferred technology due to its mix of high performance, good spectral efficiency and flat, well-structured network layer.
There is huge opportunity to reduce development time of an LTE product with careful use of Agile-like lightweight techniques. Agile methods consist of a family of development processes; some examples were formalised in the 1990s, such as Scrum, Extreme Programming and Feature-Driven Development.
In some circumstances, using Agile techniques in this way can significantly reduce timescales for development; it will not always work, for example when large multi-sited teams are used, but is certainly worth considering if the environment is suited to it.
