Long-term evolution (LTE), also known as 4G, is a rapidly growing common global technology that’s continuously evolving to offer you unprecedented data rates, higher capacity, and new levels of user experience.
By 2019, 65% of the world's population is forecasted to have LTE coverage.*
The common global technology standard has already proven to be a pervasive technology around the world.
LTE’s successor is gaining prominence with even faster speeds and greater capacity.
Using the unlicensed spectrum in the 5 GHz band enables operators to leverage both spectrums with a unified network.
This mode of the global common LTE standard is specified for the unpaired spectrum.
This device-to-device platform enables applications and services that use operator-based proximity.
Carrier aggregation is the first step in LTE Advanced commercialization, offering increased data rates.
LTE Broadcast is the most efficient mechanism to distribute the same content to virtually unlimited number of users
This next phase of LTE is paving the path to 5G, bringing the truly connected future forward faster.
LTE MTC optimizes LTE Advanced for machine-type communications to connect the Internet of Everything.
The industry is bracing for as much as a 1000x increase in mobile data traffic. We are helping mobile operators meet this challenge with bold new approaches for future-proofing the network of tomorrow.
Qualcomm has led LTE proliferation from the beginning—from the industry-first Gobi LTE/3G multimode and common FDD/TDD modems to the solutions behind the first LTE Advanced carrier-aggregation launch.
EV-DO is the most advanced form of CDMA2000®, the network tech that started the 3G revolution. And this proven performer continues to evolve with EV-DO Rev. B., delivering even higher network capacity and better user experiences.
HSPA networks already support more than 1 billion connections worldwide, and this industry-leading technology is still evolving. Qualcomm takes it to the next level with HSPA + Advanced. That’s taking the broadband experience to new levels, too.
