Surface Pro with Long Term Evolution (LTE) Advanced will be available to business customers beginning December 2017.
LTE Advanced is wireless technology that enables greater connectivity and faster operating speeds. “With a Cat 9 modem, Surface Pro with LTE Advanced is said to be the fastest LTE-enabled laptop in its class,” said Panos Panay, corporate vice president of Microsoft Devices, at the Future Decoded event yesterday in London, UK. “It delivers global connectivity with support of 20 cellular bands so you can work, study, create or relax uninterrupted.
“Surface Pro with LTE Advanced rounds out our family of ultimate laptops, giving businesses options to meet the needs of everyone in their workforce.”
According to Panay, the new culture of work will require devices with more performance and more versatility. “The Surface family has been designed to engage and inspire employees. To help people bring ideas to life,” he said.
“This is such an exciting time for our team because devices are at the forefront of a new culture. Empowering people with smarter, more intuitive ways to work. Devices are the interaction point, the tangible thing that people can hold and touch. They not only play a pivotal role as the inputs that feed intelligence into the cloud, but they are also tools that empower people with simple and more secure ways to create and connect with others.”
