4G LTE provides several benefits, such as:
  • Faster speeds - LTE technology is capable of delivering speeds faster than many other mobile Internet technologies. Customers can stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before.
  • Reliability - AT&T has the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network.
  • Faster response time - LTE technology offers lower latency than other wireless technologies, which means faster processing time to move data through a network, such as initiating a webpage or file download.

Looking Ahead

Mobile broadband is on the brink of exploding. Industry analysts predict that enabling consumer electronics and machine-to-machine devices with wireless connectivity will drive consumer demand and industry innovation. At the same time, these emerging devices will define the competitive environment in the United States for the next 10 years.


Mobile broadband, and the emerging devices it enables, extends beyond the traditional handset and smartphone. Virtually any electronic device can be wirelessly enabled. We're talking about gaming devices, e-readers, tablets, telematics, personal navigation devices and digital cameras; and on the enterprise side, applications from security monitoring systems, healthcare tracking and logistics systems all benefit from wireless connectivity.


Mobile broadband is driving these new categories of devices and applications, both for consumers and businesses. We've already taken the lead in wirelessly empowering a variety of e-readers, netbooks, tablets and laptops for consumers as well as services for the enterprise category, including devices for major package delivery companies to wirelessly enable their fleets. And we're just getting started.


No matter how you measure success, we have it covered. Our powerful and robust networks deliver a seamless customer experience. Our distribution channels are unmatched. And we offer speed and flexibility to meet the needs of the developers building emerging devices.

AT&T's NRL promotes the company's continued commitment to driving wireless into a wide variety of next generation devices. Will yours be next?

For developers who are creating a wirelessly connected, next-generation device, it can be a tremendous challenge to refine your device design while optimizing your component options and validating your OS and chipset selections. Complex coordination is required with all of the various ecosystem players to develop a world class end-to-end solution. AT&T's Emerging Devices Organization is uniquely positioned to serve as the common thread—to promote cooperation and help bring innovative devices to market. Here are some of the key links in the developer value chain, along with related companies whose expertise may add value to your development effort.

MBA Labs Logo

PTCRB and FCC certifications are necessary for a successful device launch. In order to make certification easier, AT&T has partnered with six MBA Labs that help our device partners achieve FCC and PTCRB certification for their products. In addition, the MBA labs aid in completing the submission process for the AT&T certification of the device.


Device partners are encouraged, but not required to use one of these labs for PTCRB certification.
