Delivering the first global standard for mobile broadband.

Our LTE technology inventions were essential to efficiently increasing network capacity for faster, better mobile broadband experiences and addressing the massive growth in mobile data traffic. The common, global 4G LTE standard for both FDD and TDD spectrum enabled the LTE ecosystem to rapidly grow to 600+ commercial networks and 9,500+ commercial devices worldwide.
