Verizon 4G LTE network
Verizon Wireless will host a webcast on January 20, 2010 to review updated specifications for wireless devices that will run on the nationwide 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network it is building on the Upper 700 MHz C-Block spectrum. Released today, the updated specifications address network access and SMS requirements and data retry test plans, as well as include new information about lab and signaling conformance, the open development device approval and introduction process and more. These documents will help guide developers into the next phase of bringing their LTE devices to the Verizon Wireless network.
Verizon Wireless plans to launch its 4G LTE wireless network in 25 to 30 markets in 2010 and cover virtually all of its current nationwide 3G footprint with the next-generation network by the end of 2013. The company's 4G LTE network will ultimately connect a full range of electronics devices and machines.
