LTE-Ecosystem May 2022
GSA researches worldwide mobile broadband developments and publishes facts, statistics and trends. This report, which provides an update to end of April 2022, confirms that 22,125 LTE user devices have been identified as launched — including commercial 5G devices also supporting LTE — from 990 manufacturers, and analyses the main developments. It covers LTE frequency-division duplex (FDD) and time-division duplex (TDD) models, as well as LTE-related cellular IoT devices standardised by 3GPP as user equipment Cat-M1/M2 and Cat-NB1/NB2.
Although 5G grabs the headlines, LTE still dominates global mobile telecom services. There are 809 operators with commercially launched public mobile or broadband fixed wireless access networks. There were 6.2 billion LTE subscriptions globally by the end of 1Q21, according to July 2021 figures from Omdia. Given this huge market, it is not surprising that there is a vibrant number of technology suppliers supporting operators with LTE networks and within that, a large number of suppliers selling a huge array of devices.
There are 22,125 LTE-capable user devices including frequency and operator variants from 990 suppliers catalogued in GSA’s GAMBoD database, a 14.5% increase since May 2021.
