LTE Advanced

LTE Advanced

A major upgrade to the LTE cellular communications technology. Standardized starting with Release 10 of the 3GPP specification, LTE Advanced was designed to provide significantly faster download speeds than LTE. It also offers new features that include emergency call priority, enhanced service in rural areas and machine-to-machine (M2M) transmission without overloading the network. Implementing LTE Advanced is less costly for LTE carriers than switching from 3G to LTE. See LTE and LTE for IoT.
