LTE – The Successor To UMTS

Category: General – Tags: – Joan – 1:18 pm

LTE is who is much on travel or perhaps in a DSL outskirts lives as the successor of the previous Standad UMTS, will probably use the new standard for mobile Internet. There is talk of UMTS. UMTS is also abbreviated as 3 G. UMTS is the standard of the third generation, thus an evolution of the still used GSM network. However, the GSM network allows only speeds of up to 56 kbit / s. This speed was to call a few years ago enough to mobile WAP.

However, this speed is no longer portable. Web pages have developed very strongly compared to a few years. You were always attractive and also more pictures decorate the Web page. Due to the larger amount of data compared a few years ago, very increased load times. But even such elaborate Web pages can be called on the go thanks to UMTS. With UMTS speeds of up to 384 kbit / s are possible.

This speed is more than enough to also go to look at Web pages. In addition to the already existing fast UMTS network there are also various extensions for UMTS. HSDPA and HSUPA are the magic words. With HSDPA, a UMTS connection reaches a maximum speed of 7.2 Mbit / s. With HSUPA, however, increases to the upload, speeds of up to 1.45 Mbit / s in the upload are possible. However, there is also already a new development. With LTE, the successor of UMTS in the starting blocks is already. LTE will allow speeds of 20 MB / s. But LTE is still in the development phase, an exact start date for LTE is not clear yet. However, it can be in this respect only by several months or a few months. Torsten Heinsius
