VZW imposing higher certification bar for LTE devices

Source: Telephony Online
Verizon reveals details about new 4G network at developer’s conference, including more stringent power requirements than the LTE standard.

Verizon Wireless has always placed higher requirements on its CDMA phones than the rest of the industry, and now it is creating a similarly high bar for devices on its new long-term evolution network. Verizon said it is embracing the open access model for its new LTE network, supporting any device and any application, but it is emphasizing that those devices still have to meet its high performance standards. Luckily for handset vendors, though, those standards likely won’t be too difficult to meet.
