As the next phase in the evolution of LTE (3GPP Release 13 and beyond), LTE Advanced Pro does more than just push LTE capabilities closer towards 5G. It will also become an integral part of the 5G mobile network, providing many services essential to the 5G experience starting day one.
One key capability that LTE Advanced Pro is enabling globally is Gigabit LTE—technology that brings many new immersive experiences to life, including VR. And delivering Gigabit peak data rates is just the beginning. By driving the Gigabit LTE evolution, an anchor of 5G mobile experience, we can provide even faster throughput, lower latency, more capacity and better uniformity in 3GPP Release 13* and beyond.
* 3GPP User Equipment (UE) categories
Scales down LTE for machine-type, low-power and wide-area communications for the IoT.
Gives vehicles the ability to reliably communicate with each other and everything around them.
Evolves digital broadcasting to deliver a converged TV network that will open up new opportunities.
Leverages the vast LTE ecosystem for robust public safety communication.
Enables a growing set of drone use cases that are leveraging extensive LTE coverage.
Brings ubiquitous low-latency communication for command & control.
5G is a unified, more capable platform that will bring new levels of flexibility, scalability and efficiency to meet expanding connectivity needs in the next decade and beyond. With multi-connectivity, LTE will provide ubiquitous coverage when 5G launches, and will help deliver a more consistent 5G experience. In addition, LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC) can be leveraged to enable non-standalone, LTE-anchored 5G NR deployments.
