4G LTE Solution

4G LTE Solution

The ubiquitous global mobile network empowers worldwide IoT deployment and interconnection.

LTE Cat.1

Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is a standard for wireless broadband communication for mobile devices and data terminals. The goal of LTE is to increase the capacity and speed of wireless data networks using new digital signal processing (DSP) techniques and modulations that were developed around the turn of the millennium. A further goal is the redesign and simplification of the network architecture to an IP-based system with significantly reduced transfer latency compared with the 3G architecture.

LTE Cat. M

LTE Machine-to-Machine (LTE-M) is a cellular technology developed from LTE, which is introduced as low-cost LTE (LC-LTE) in 3GPP Release 12 specifications and LTE enhanced MTC (eMTC) in Release 13. LTE-M is specifically designed for the needs of IoT applications through an existing carrier wave. eMTC provides the broadest range of IoT capabilities, delivering up to 1 Mbit/s of throughput while utilizing just 1.4 MHz of bandwidth. It is designed to fully coexist with the existing LTE infrastructure. In the continuous evolution of LTE, the latest eMTC and NB-IoT further optimize the system cost, enhance endurance, and expand coverage. The key capability of eMTC is to support mobility and can be located at a cost of only 25% of the Cat1 chip, which is four times higher than the GPRS rate.

LTE User Equipment (UE) Category

LTE UE category is the set of information (parameters) that defines the maximum throughput for the user equipment. Different categories offer different properties for the 4G LTE delivered. LTE Cat. 4 and Cat. 6 indicate LTE network access capabilities of user equipment are 4 and 6 respectively. The higher the category is, the faster the transmission speed gets, while the response cost increases accordingly.



High Speed

4G LTE features high-speed communication. LTE Cat. 1 provides a maximum of 10 Mbit/s downlink speed and 5 Mbit/s uplink. LTE Cat. 4 reaches up to 150 Mbit/s downlink speed and 50 Mbit/s uplink.
Smart Connection

Smart Communication

Smart 4G LTE technology can more accurately respond to different commands. The searched data will be transmitted to the user's mobile phone after analyzing, processing, and organizing.

Convenient Networking

Excellent Compatibility

Introducing 4G LTE to IoT applications improves compatibility, reducing conflicts between software and hardware.

Low Cost

Compared with Cat. 4, the cost-effective eMTC and Cat. 1 better apply to products that place a low requirement on costs and transmission speed.


Ubiquitous Coverage

Cat. 1 can seamlessly connect to existing LTE networks in mainland China. Cat. M is generally available across North America. Cat. 1 and Cat. M are widely covered across European countries.
