Snapdragon 4G LTE Modems
Ultra-fast, reliable, and rich wireless connectivity — the foundation of all great mobile experiences — are virtually synonymous with Snapdragon processors. That is why we have extended the Snapdragon brand to include our latest LTE modems.

LTE Advanced is a collection of carrier aggregation, advanced antenna techniques and small cell enhancements that lead to big improvements in cell strength and data speeds. LTE Advanced supports the aggregation of up to five carriers, up to 100 MHz, to increase user data rates for higher connectivity performance. As a key component to how Qualcomm is answering the 1000x challenge, LTE Advanced is also designed to improve hyper-dense small cells deployment, and optimizes small cells through special features that support scaling for the capacity required. And beyond traditional mobile broadband, LTE Advanced technology is also being used for proximity based direct device-to-device discovery (LTE Direct) and as a platform for terrestrial TV (LTE Broadcast).
Playing a key part in commercializing LTE Advanced, carrier aggregation further improves data speed by pulling in multiple carriers within a cell coverage area to service a device. Carrier aggregation effectively binds carriers at the device, enabling more resources to support wider bandwidth for faster connectivity speeds. This increased bandwidth can also be used to improve the performance of bursty smartphone traffic, social media applications, instant messaging and more.
