Long Term Evolution (LTE)

Definition - What does Long Term Evolution (LTE) mean?

Long Term Evolution (LTE) refers to a standard for smooth and efficient transition toward more advanced leading-edge technologies to increase the capacity and speed of wireless data networks. LTE is often used to refer to wireless broadband or mobile network technologies.

LTE is also referred to as 3GPP Long Term Evolution. 3GPP is an acronym for 3rd Generation Partnership Project, which operates under a name trademarked by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute. LTE is also known as LTE Super 3G and LTE Super 4G.

Techopedia explains Long Term Evolution (LTE)

LTE features include an all-IP flat network architecture, end-to-end quality of service (Qos), higher download rates approaching 300 mbps and upload rates of 75 mbps, expanding cell capacity to accommodate 200 active users and supporting fast moving mobiles.

LTE is referred to as the next generation network beyond 3G, with the capacity to support a high demand for connectivity from new consumer devices tailored to new mobile applications. In an LTE live air demo, Web browsing, HD video, and telecommunications are demonstrated simultaneously inside a single computer moving within a vehicle at 108 kilometers per hour.

In 2010, many well-known U.S. and global wireless service providers/manufacturers began using LTE.
