Long Term Evolution (LTE)

– A White Paper from the UMTS Forum

What is LTE?

Long Term Evolution (LTE) describes standardization work by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) to define a new high-speed radio access method for mobile communications systems.

LTE is the next step on a clearly-charted roadmap to so-called ‘4G’ mobile systems that starts with today’s 2G and 3G networks. Building on the technical foundations of the 3GPP family of cellular systems that embraces GSM, GPRS and EDGE as well as WCDMA and now HSPA (High Speed Packet Access), LTE offers a smooth evolutionary path to higher speeds and lower latency. Coupled with more efficient use of operators’ finite spectrum assets, LTE enables an even richer, more compelling mobile service environment.
