Verizon releases specs for LTE devices

Verizon Wireless released its initial set of technical specs for devices that will run on its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, which Verizon will launch next year on a commercial basis.

The new specifications are designed to offer guidelines for both access and data transport for LTE devices and will serve as a roadmap for developers who choose to develop devices for submission to the LTE certification process.

The specifications are available for download here. To encourage developers to design devices that can take advantage of 4G network speeds and capabilities, Verizon Wireless said it would host a Web conference on LTE device specifications on May 13.
