Verizon Says LTE-Advanced Is On Its Roadmap
Vevrizon Wireless has confirmed that it will upgrade to Long Term Evolution-Advanced after it finishes deploying LTE across the country. Speaking at a recent conference, Praveen Atreya, director of network technology, told Light Reading that it is far too early in the process to discuss potential speeds and features of LTE-Advanced, but "Verizon is definitely going that route in the long term." A different Verizon representative also noted that the company is still testing voice-over-LTE. Larry Rau, director of technology applications ecosystem for Verizon, said that VoLTE is being trialled in two of its pre-commercial LTE markets and won't be ready until 2012 at the earliest. The company wants to be be sure the voice experience over its LTE data network is superior to that of its CDMA voice network.
