Verizon wireless updating
This software update has been tested to optimize device performance, resolve known issues, and apply the latest security patches.
Before you download: This software update adds support for XLTE, along with web user interface improvements.
In March 2008, the International Telecommunications Union-Radio communications sector (ITU-R) specified a set of requirements for 4G standards, named the International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced (IMT-Advanced) specification, setting peak speed requirements for 4G service at 100 megabits per second (Mbit/s) for high mobility communication (such as from trains and cars) and 1 gigabit per second (Gbit/s) for low mobility communication (such as pedestrians and stationary users).
Since the first-release versions of Mobile Wi MAX and LTE support much less than 1 Gbit/s peak bit rate, they are not fully IMT-Advanced compliant, but are often branded 4G by service providers.
However, this only means the software didn't install properly.
The device will power back on with original software and will prompt you again to install the software update.
Potential and current applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, and 3D television.If you don't have a strong connection to Wi-Fi or the Verizon Wireless network, you may not be able to perform a software update over the air.Instead, you can connect your device to a computer with Internet access.The peak bit rate is further improved by smart antenna arrays for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications.In the field of mobile communications, a "generation" generally refers to a change in the fundamental nature of the service, non-backwards-compatible transmission technology, higher peak bit rates, new frequency bands, wider channel frequency bandwidth in Hertz, and higher capacity for many simultaneous data transfers (higher system spectral efficiency in bit/second/Hertz/site).
