What is Long Term Evolution (LTE)?
Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a standard for a smooth and efficient transition to more advanced cutting-edge technologies to increase the capacity and speed of wireless data networks. LTE is widely used to refer to wireless broadband or cellular network technologies.
LTE is also known as 3GPP Long Term Evolution. 3GPP is an acronym for the 3rd Generation Partnership Project, which operates under a name protected by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute. LTE is also known as LTE Super 3G and LTE Super 4G.
LTE features include a flat all-IP network architecture, end-to-end quality of service (Qos), higher download rates of up to 300 Mbit / s and upload rates of 75 Mbit / s, expansion of cell capacity for 200 active users and Fast mobile device support.
LTE is referred to as the next generation 3G network and can support the high demand for connectivity from new consumer devices tailored for new mobile applications. In an LTE live air demo, web browsing, HD video and telecommunications are demonstrated simultaneously in a single computer that moves in a vehicle at 108 kilometers per hour.
In 2010, many well-known US and global wireless carriers / manufacturers began using LTE.
