Usage of 4G or LTE Technologies:
It is a wrong notion that 4G technologies is useful only for downloading at faster pace. According to the experts, almost all the electronics used at homes will work based on internet. In such situation, LTE or Long Term Evolution network becomes necessary to enable the electronics to communicate and to work cordially.
LTE Network at Offices:
Coming to the usage of LTE or 4G network to offices, this technology can change the functioning of offices. Ability of go for real time video conference with the employees even if they are present at any place in the world is the main benefit of using this network in the offices. Also, employees can use the applications present in the cloud platform to work at any place and to access their work files.
Availability of LTE or 4G Network:
Telecom operators from all corners of the world have initiated 4G technologies in the 2004 conference conducted at Toronto, by name Third Generation Partnership.
Presently, LTE services are offered by Verizon Network to 11 Crore people present in 38 cities of America. Along with it, these services are offered at 60 international airports. Metro PCS has started using LTE in the commercial format for the first time and also has released a mobile phone suitable to this technology. T Mobile, AT & T and other such American network operators are also moving towards 4G services. Bharati Airtel is trying to bring this technology in to India. If possible, Indians can get this service from 2012 onwards.
Any other Technology Parallel to LTE or 4G Technology:
As of now, we can say that there is no competition for 4G or LTE technology. But some people feel that WiMax technology which has been developed few years earlier is in line with LTE network. Frequency division multiplier technology will be used in WiMax while orthogonal frequency divisional multiplier will be used in LTE network. Data packets travel separately in LTE and hence it data transfer is of higher standards in LTE.
