Two standards — LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced — have both qualified as IMT-Advanced technologies. According to the ITU, "IMT-Advanced will use radio-frequency spectrum much more efficiently, making higher data transfers possible on lesser bandwidth." The ITU said that LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced will be capable of speeds that are up to 500 times faster than today's 3G technology. LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced will succeed current technologies, such as LTE and WiMax.
