What does ‘LTE’ mean?


LTE or long term evolution is a potential solution for the lack of standards in the mobile space and would act as the precedent for the next-generation, 4G technology. It would create greatly needed continuity and consistency in the overly complex mobile ecosystem. The main advantages with LTE are:

  • High throughput
  • Plug and play convenience
  • Improved end-user experience
  • Low operating costs

But 4G is not expected to hit the mainstream before the middle of the next decade and if LTE is really tied to 4G technology then we’re looking at quite a few years of standard-less platform.¬†Ultimately, we need a common system with technology that has power power to deliver broadband-like performance.
