LTE has come across as a truly upgraded “global mobile communications standard” to the TD-SCDMA, CDMA, and GSM ecosystems. LTE does claim rendering lower latency with higher data rates at a minimal TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) as compared to 3G technologies. Moreover, LTE-A or LTE-Advanced is an improvised version that makes use of features like interference management, aggregation of carriers, and enhanced antenna techniques.

Research states that LTE has seen more than 265 network launches at the commercial level, adoption of LTE has obtained momentum all through the globe. Several carriers are already into deployment of LTE-A features.

LTE advanced 5G technology is poised to be the epicentre of ecosystem, thereby empowering digital transformation throughout. This Long Term Evolution is expected to drive the telecom service providers crazy in the near future.

What’s with WiFi-Enabled LTE?

The number of wireless carriers have been increasing at a substantial rate. The promulgation of embedded WiFi features in mobile and fixed devices is one of the driving factors. Moreover, growing usage of tablets and smartphones is anticipated to drive the demand for technology with the highest internet speed. So do we have WiFi-enabled LTE small cell gateways witnessing an immeasurable growth going forward.

Public Safety LTE: The Need of the Hour

Mission critical LTE has also moved a step forward with regards to incorporation of public safety LTE at the global level. It encompasses everything – right from real time PTT (Push-to-Talk) communications to video surveillance. Cellular wireless network enables public safety LTE. Prolonged dialling thus gets eliminated. The solutions offered by public safety LTE include provision of command centre software, vehicle-mounted modems, broadband PTT interoperability and LMR (Land Mobile Radio), add-on encryption solutions, handheld LTE devices, and standard-compliant architecture-based broadband systems.

It needs to be noted that radio communication is pretty well in line with the ITU-R (ITU Radiocommunication Sector) guidelines and allocation of radio-frequency spectrum.

LTE-Advanced 5G Market to get Swayed by Business Partnerships

Business partnerships in LTE-Advanced 5G market are meant to make way for security, performance, and the management that have been asked for by businesses. One such partnership is that inked between Telstra and Cradlepoint in Oct 2019, wherein the former benefited from the latter’s NetCloud platform and deep enterprise cellular expertise to come up with an integrated 5G modem along with an edge router solution to provide seamless 5G mobile technology solutions.

On the similar grounds, Nokia, in Dec 2019, announced coming up with strategic partnership ecosystem for bringing private wireless/local 5G LTE to the government and industrial sectors all across Japan. Nokia will thus help in the acceleration of IoT for Japan-based industries by exclusively offering an end-to-end industrial grade private wireless portfolio. In In the last quarter of the year 2019, the government of Japan released 5G spectrum strictly designated for local governments and individual companies (known as local 5G in Japan). The enterprises would be able to deploy next-generation industrial-strength wireless connectivity based on LTE-Advanced 5G for creating private but reliable networks.

Samsung is another key player fostering LTE-Advanced 5G technology. It has collaborated with Marvell to launch as well as develop multiple generations of control plane and radio processors to operate on LTE-Advanced 5G solutions. The other strategic partnership comes with Amdocs, whose line of expertise includes SDN (software-defined networks) and NFV (network functions virtualization). The partnership enables advancing virtualization of 5G network solutions from Samsung’s 5G network.

VoLTE 5G: The Future of Voice Communication?

VoLTE makes use of interactive calling in 5G feasible. As talking and usage of 5G LTE data happens simultaneously, one could also conduct close to 6-way conference calls. There is a choice between video or HD voice calls over the LTE network. The iPhones are endowed with VoLTE, whereas for the ones using Android, the connection settings need to be checked.

Covid-19 Impact

LTE-Advanced 5G has turned out to be mandatory with the enforcement of partial/total lockdowns amidst the ongoing pandemic. As the new “normal” of “Working from Home” is taking shape, uninterrupted connectivity is imperative. LTE-Advanced 5G is bound to ease the connectivity issues springing up from the remote areas, in particular.

Competitive Landscape

The key players in the LTE-Advanced 5G market include Gemtek Technology Company, Google, Panasonic Corporation, Microsoft Corporation, General Dynamics Corporation, D-Link Corporation, AT&T, Ericsson, Huawei, Apple, and Samsung.
