Improving capacity and user experience since 1985.


The world’s most used mobile broadband technology.

LTE & LTE Advanced

Not evolution, revolution.

The bar has been raised for wireless technology.

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.

Did you know?

By 2019, 65% of the world's population is forecasted to have LTE coverage.*

The advancements continue.


The common global technology standard has already proven to be a pervasive technology around the world.

LTE Advanced

LTE’s successor is gaining prominence with even faster speeds and greater capacity.

LTE in Unlicensed

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.

LTE Direct

This device-to-device platform enables applications and services that use operator-based proximity.

LTE Carrier Aggregation

Carrier aggregation is the first step in LTE Advanced commercialization, offering increased data rates.

LTE Broadcast

LTE Broadcast is the most efficient mechanism to distribute the same content to virtually unlimited number of users

LTE Advanced Pro

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 1000x Challenge

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.

A pioneer.

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.
