The LTE era

LTE increases both the speed and the capacity of wireless communications. Because its network architecture is IP-based, it dramatically reduces latency, leading to more reliable and clearer communications. It offers organisations:

  • Faster communications, with data sent and received more rapidly
  • Faster upload and download speeds
  • A focus on VoIP, which increases mobile capacity
  • The opportunity to add more data-rich applications and innovative new services to communications networks

However, this evolution is not straightforward. As one standard is overtaken by the next, all areas of telecommunications do not automatically switch over. UHF and traditional radio technologies are declining while LTE, unified communications and other competitive solutions increase their market share – but the transition is neither seamless nor comprehensive.
