The International Telecommunications Union Radiocommunication Assembly has officially ratified the next-generation of wireless networking technologies during its meeting in Geneva.

According to the ITU, "IMT-Advanced will use radio-frequency spectrum much more efficiently, making higher data transfers possible on lesser bandwidth."

LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced will succeed current technologies, such as LTE and WiMax.
