LTE introduces a new, more flattened IP-based packet-only core network and utilizes advanced antenna techniques like MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) and beamforming to achieve excellent performance. Qualcomm is a leading contributor to the LTE standards and is involved in key industry groups such as the GSMA, GSA, and NGMN. Qualcomm is also an active partner in initiatives like LSTI (LTE/SATE Trial Initiative), helping in accelerated commercialization and the interoperability of LTE.
Seamless interoperability with 3G is an integral part of the LTE standard. 3G/LTE multimode devices ensure ubiquitous broadband coverage outside initial LTE deployments. Qualcomm is in a unique position to support LTE commercialization with its industryâ€™s first multimode chipsets.
