Signals Ahead: LTE and Drones Benchmark Report 2017 - Keeping up with the Jetsons - A Benchmark Study of How LTE Networks Enable the Command and Control of Drones - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Signals Ahead: LTE and Drones Benchmark" report to their offering.

In this Signals Ahead report we provide results from the industry's first independent and in-depth analysis of LTE and its ability to provide command and control (C2) for drones. For this study, we tested the four major US mobile operators.

Highlights of the Report include the following:

At a high level, the networks performed better than we initially thought for some bands, but there are significant design considerations for both the eNB antenna system and the UAS antenna system. Further, there are likely changes to the standard that are required to ensure optimal and reliable performance while not degrading the terrestrial cellular network.
