This updated report, which was researched and published b3,253 LTEy GSA (Global mobile Suppliers Association) and published on June 19, 2015 confirms the maturity and fast growing ecosystem of LTE user devices. This latest research increased to 3,253 the number of LTE user devices included in our database which have been announced to the market by 305 suppliers. Support for each of the main operating FDD and TDD frequency bands is stated.
LTE1800 (Band 3) is the best supported band and has the largest LTE devices ecosystem.
The number of LTE devices i.e. 3,253 as confirmed in this report is 1,364 higher than GSA reported in July 2014, representing 72% growth. The number of manufacturers participating in this market grew 81% in the same period.
Cat 4 and Cat 6 terminals are identified and quantified, as are terminals that support VoLTE.
The number of terminals that support LTE TDD (TD-LTE) is growing strongly, and gaining share. 1,210 LTE TDD devices in our database i.e. 37.2% of all LTE devices compared to 28% in July 2014, support LTE TDD (TD-LTE).
There are 1,783 LTE smartphones, including operator and frequency variants, representing an improved 54.8% share of all device types and is the largest device category. LTE connected tablets and personal hotspots are also fast growing device segments.
