The Only History of LTE You’ll Ever Need | Episode 79 of the Connect This! Show

Join us Thursday, September 7th at 2pm ET for a very special episode of the Connect This! Show. Co-hosts Christopher Mitchell (ILSR) and Travis Carter (USI Fiber) will be joined by regular guest Doug Dawson (CCG Consulting) and special guest Spencer Sevilla (University of Washington, ICDT Lab) to talk about how the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) standard for wireless networks came into being, from its inception in 2004 to its widespread adoption by 2010. They’ll cover everything from how a new communication standard is negotiated, to the development of OEM hardware, to deployment at scale. 

If you like this episode, stay tuned for LTE Networks: Part II, where we’ll aim to tackle where LTE networks are going next.
