LTE / LTE Advanced

The bar has been raised.

Long-term evolution (LTE), also known as 4G, is a rapidly growing common global technology that’s continuously evolving to offer you unprecedented data rates, higher capacity and new levels of user experience.

The advancements continue.


The common global technology standard has already proven to be a pervasive technology around the world.

LTE Advanced

LTE’s successor is gaining prominence, with even faster speeds and greater capacity.

LTE in Unlicenced

Using the unlicenced spectrum in the 5 GHz band enables operators to make use of both spectrums with a unified network.


This mode of the global common LTE standard is specified for the unpaired spectrum.

LTE Direct

This device-to-device platform enables applications and services that use operator-based proximity.

LTE Carrier Aggregation

Carrier aggregation is the first step in LTE Advanced commercialisation, offering increased data rates.

LTE Broadcast

LTE Broadcast is the most efficient mechanism to distribute the same content to a virtually unlimited number of users.


LTE MTC optimises LTE Advanced for machine-type communications to connect the Internet of Everything.
