Gigabit-Class LTE Technology

Officially known as LTE-Advanced Pro, Gigabit-Class LTE is the latest version of the 4G LTE standard and is rolling out throughout the world. With download speeds significantly higher than 4G LTE, Gigabit-Class LTE is many organizations’ next step toward 5G. Because 4G LTE and Gigabit-Class LTE share essentially the same underlying spectrum and infrastructure, Gigabit-Class LTE is rolling out faster than 5G but shares many of its exceptional propagation characteristics.

Get on the Pathway to 5G Now.

Gigabit-Class LTE Application Opportunities

  • Full traffic failover
  • Remote interactive experience
  • HD video surveillance
  • Mobile command centers
  • Smart fleets
  • Primary wireless fixed sites
  • Autonomous agriculture
  • Remote healthcare diagnostics
  • Private LTE
  • loT asset management

Much faster than 4G LTE

With the same spectrum but using carrier aggregation, 256 QAM, and 4×4 MIMO, Gigabit-Class LTE can deliver download speeds 2-7 times faster than 4G LTE.


Long-range propagation

Because it uses the same spectrum as 4G LTE, Gigabit-Class LTE has the same long-range propagation characteristics.


Backwards compatible

Users can deploy Gigabit-Class LTE edge networking solutions today and run in 4G LTE mode until Gigabit-Class LTE is turned up in their area.


Failback for 5G

Gigabit-Class LTE will be the primary failback technology for 5G. Both connections will be live, making failback seamless.


5G Ready

The first form factor of 5G will be an adapter that will plug into the Ethernet port of Gigabit-Class LTE wireless edge routers.


Available now

Because Gigabit-Class LTE simply involves applying new techniques to current infrastructure, its market penetration will be rapid.

Leverage Gigabit Today. Add 5G Tomorrow.

Operators are rolling out Gigabit-Class LTE rapidly; soon it will be available in most markets around the globe. With minimal effort, an organization could deploy Gigabit-Class LTE today and immediately gain 2-7 times the performance of 4G LTE. Below are three Gigabit-Class LTE deployment options that organizations should consider. In each scenario, a 5G Ready router and edge networking service is deployed with Gigabit-Class LTE. As 5G services roll out, 5G adapters simply connect to the routers as additional WAN links. The edge networking service then orchestrates link usage according to site requirements and needs.
