LTE Advanced Pro

Accelerating the mobile expansion in the 5G Era

LTE Advanced Pro (3GPP Release 13+) is expanding LTE to a wide range of new industries and enabling new use cases beyond smartphones. Providing ubiquitous coverage and essential services that complement 5G NR, LTE Advanced Pro will be submitted along with 5G NR to meet IMT-2020 requirements.


LTE IoT is a suite of two complementary narrowband technologies — eMTC & NB-IoT — that starts to connect the massive IoT today. It will be deployable in-band with 5G NR in its continued evolution path to 5G.

Cellular-V2X (C-V2X)

C-V2X is connecting vehicles to everything to not only better support automotive road safety, but also to pave the path to the future of autonomous driving. Rel-16+ 5G NR C-V2X will maintain backward compatibility to Rel-14 C-V2X.

Gigabit LTE

Gigabit LTE is here now and delivers a seamless 5G mobile experience. It complements 5G NR deployments that will start in 2019 and continues to evolve to achieve 2 Gbps speeds.

Private LTE Network

Private LTE network optimizes performance for a wide variety of industrial IoT use case using dedicated, locally managed equipment. Private 5G NR network will enable advanced services such as wireless industrial ethernet.

Pioneering technologies for 5G NR spectrum sharing

Licensed Assisted Access (LAA)

Extends LTE to unlicensed spectrum with a licensed spectrum anchor


Broadens the LTE ecosystem to new deployment opportunities by operating solely in unlicensed spectrum.

Also enabling many other mobile use cases

Drone communication

Enables a growing set of drone use cases that are leveraging extensive LTE coverage.

Digital TV broadcasting

Evolves digital broadcasting to deliver a converged TV network that will open up new opportunities.

Public safety

Leverages the vast LTE ecosystem for robust public safety communication.
