Is it opportunity for new operators such as Reliance Jio which started in telecom domain from LTE network ? What will happen with existing 2G/3G technologies in which a number of operators have already spent a huge amount of money ?

There are different kinds of operators in a particular region/country. Few operators have infrastructure and few operators just having agreement to share the infrastructure. From user perspective, his phone should have support of LTE, 3G and 2G support what I know till now. It means if can use 2G for voice and LTE for data. It depends on user interest.
I think this is very initial stage for all the operator w.r.t LTE deployments. As of now, for an operator who is loosing traffic at legacy network (results less income) but due to high operational cost, it would be a tough time for operator to maintain the network.

But at the same time, M2M and IoT technologies are keeping pace into market. I think not all types of devices but still most of the M2M or IoT devices would be using 2G legacy network.

I went through a web material which was talking about connection less LTE network in which control place will be dis-aggregated from the user plane and data plane will not use GTP-U protocol. I want to know, after removing GTP-U from data plane, will there be any impact of existing procedures like UE state transition between Connected and IDLE states.
