This updated report, which was researched and published by GSA (Global mobile Suppliers Association) on July 5, 2013 confirms the solid industry commitment to LTE and shows that a robust support ecosystem of LTE user devices is established and continuously expanding. This latest research identified a total of 948 LTE user devices announced to the market by 100 suppliers. Device support for each of the main operating frequency bands is presented. For the first time we feature 850 MHz (band 5) as another of the frequency selections.
The number of LTE devices i.e. 948 as confirmed in this report, is 531 higher than the number GSA reported a year ago. The report covers devices supporting both the FDD and TDD modes of the LTE standard.
Most devices operate in FDD mode. However, 200 devices are identified which can operate in the TDD mode. This segment is growing strongly.
