3G/4G Wireless Patent Portfolio    

LTE is part of the GSM evolutionary path for mobile broadband.

Overview

Long term evolution (LTE) is a radio platform technology that will allow operators to achieve even higher peak throughputs than HSPA+ in higher spectrum bandwidth. Work on LTE began at 3GPP in 2004, with an official LTE work item started in 2006 and a completed 3GPP release 8 specification in march 2009. Initial deployments of LTE began in late 2009.

LTE is part of the GSM evolutionary path for mobile broadband. Following edge, UMTS, HSPA (HSDPA and HSUPA combined) and HSPA evolution (HSPA+). Although HSPA and its evolution are strongly positioned to be the dominant mobile data technology for the next decade, the 3GPP family of standards must evolve toward the future. HSPA+ will provide the stepping-stone to LTE for many operators.

There is a rapidly growing demand for broadband-enabled data applications within certain vertical market segments including public safety, oil, gas and energy production, defense and others. Wireless infrastructure and support service providers are optimizing LTE as the technology of choice for general communications and various applications including remote data acquisition, video surveillance, multimedia PTT, and others for private LTE network deployments. Expectations are that LTE services in these key vertical market segments will grow at a CAGR of nearly 63% and eventually account for nearly $23 billion in service revenue by the end of 2018.
