Every once in a while a new technology changes the game. Some benefit from it while others fail to adapt. Long Term Evolution, or LTE for short, is on the surface, just yet another fast wireless standard bringing us faster mobile networking. But just like the freeway was much more than just a faster road, LTE actually has a chance to change the rules for app developers and create new possibilities.
In this talk, you will learn what LTE is. We will explore it from application developer's point of view. By the end of the talk, you should be able to identify the opportunities for new applications as well as how to take advantage of new capabilities in your existing apps.
We will talk about why you'd care about 4G, how to leverage it in your apps, how to manage for mixed networks, how to speed things up, how to use sessions effectively, and how to future-proof your apps.
