Alcatel-Lucent and SKT team on next generation LTE

Source: rethink wireless
Before LTE is even commercially deployed, the vendors are jockeying for position in the next generation of wireless standards. Both the LTE and WiMAX communities have submitted their upcoming standards, LTE Advanced and WiMAX 2.0, to the ITU for consideration as official standards for 'true 4G'. While we might not expect to see such systems in the field until the second half of the next decade, the suppliers want to establish their technology and patents credentials early, and Alcatel-Lucent is leading the field for now, with its Bell Labs R&D unit forming a strategic partnership with Korean operator SKT.
