Novatel Wireless, a leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, today announced that it has successfully completed the first data transmission call using Long Term Evolution (LTE) 4G technology. LTE provides high data rates of up to 100Mbps on the uplink and 50 Mbps on the downlink and an enhanced user experience by leveraging new, wider bandwidth spectrum. Many operators are already planning to overlay LTE on their 3G networks to augment data capacity. Novatel Wireless is working with operators and plans to launch commercial data devices in late 2010.
