DATA - LTE

LTE APN

The Acronym LTE stands for term evolution and is generally publishes as 4G LTE. Although LTE is popularly considered as 4G, this technology is only one of this group, however, it is the most common when we talk about the latest generation of mobile internet.

The LTE is evolution of the GSM/UMTS standards, something with which we are a little more related and its purpose is to increase the capacity and speed of wireless data networks by using a new digital signal processing (DSP).

Given the above , the LTE is a big change with respect to 3G but for not meeting the standards of 4G is better defined as 3.9G, since it is neither 3G nor 4G, but is close to the 4G. In order to combat this weakness, 3GPP launched the new specification know as LTE-Advanced.

What is 4G ?

4G is the fourth generation of mobile telecommunications technology, commonly abbreviated as 4G, which are given by the radio-communication standardization sector of the international telecommunication union (ITU) , whose task is to regulate most of the radio spectrum. 4G data transmission speeds is better than 3G. 4G LTE wireless broadband is 10 times faster than 3G - whose download maximum speeds can reach 12 Mbps (Megabits per second) and upload speeds can reach 5 Mbps, with peak download speeds approaching 50 Mbps. In the other word, referring to 4G speeds, its specified that the speed in motion must be at least 100Mbp, while the speed when one is at a fixed point should be reach 1Gbp.

Where you'll see APN LTE

The HSS contains users' SAE subscription data such as the EPS-subscribed quality of service (QOS) profile and any access restrictions for roaming . HSS also contains information about the (Pocket Data Networks) PDNs to which the user can connect , as reported by Alcatel-Lucent. "This could be in the form of an access point name (APN) (which is a label according to DNS naming conventions describing the access point to the PDN) or a PND address (indicating subscribed IP address(es)). In addition the HSS holds dynamic information such as the identity of the MME to which the user is currently attached or resisted. The HSS may also integrate the authentication center (AUC), which generates the vectors for authentication and security keys."
