LTE-M Logo

Toolkit

GSMA

“LTE-M” stands for Long Term Evolution for Machines. It is a low power wide area radio technology standard published by 3GPP in Release 13 that addresses the requirements of the IoT. The technology provides improved both indoor and outdoor coverage, supports massive numbers of low throughput devices, low delay sensitivity, ultra-low device cost, low device power consumption and optimised network architecture.

The LTE-M logo is designed for network operators and device, module & chipset manufacturers to market and promote LTE-M technology and product. In 2018 the LTE-M logo was developed for the GSMA LTE-M Task Force to enable members and other technology users to demonstrate their support for a unified global technology and to clearly label products and services using LTE-M https://www.gsma.com/iot/long-term-evolution-machine-type-communication-lte-mtc-cat-m1/

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can use this logo?

Anyone using LTE-M technology, as detailed in the 3GPP specification, may use this logo designed to increase global recognition of LTE-M. This logo may be used by companies promoting products and services which utilise LTE-M technology.

Who created this logo?

The LTE-M logo was designed by the GSM Association (“GSMA”), the global trade association for the mobile industry whose registered office is at GSMA Head Office, Floor 2, The Walbrook Building, 25 Walbrook, London, EC4N 8AF, UK.

What is the purpose of the logo?

The GSMA LTE-M Task Force agreed that multiple LTE-M logos may confuse end users. It would be far better for the industry to support the notion of one LTE-M logo. Furthermore, one logo, supported by the GSMA, has the potential to become a universally recognised symbol which easily identifies LTE-M enabled devices and services. The logo was designed to be suitable for the purpose of promoting & marketing LTE-M on an international basis. It was also designed to be capable of representation in different colours & languages where necessary.

Where might you expect to see the logo in use?

Network operators and device, module and chipset manufacturers will determine how and where the logo is deployed. The brand guidelines will include, but will not be limited to, the following usage examples; i.e. outer device packaging, in-box literature, online and offline marketing collaterals and events, online service and device communications, service and device advertising.

Can a network operator or a device, module, chipset manufacturer use the logo independently?

The LTE-M logo is intended to be used by either network operators or device, module, chipset manufacturers without additional dependence on being associated with particular devices or networks. As show in the illustrative examples below this permit:

  • A device, module, chipset manufacturer can market a device using LTE-M logo provided that the device, module, chipset supports LTE feature eMTC in 3GPP Release 13 and onward Releases and supports any of the LTE Cat Mx categories; i.e. Cat M1, Cat M2 and further. The LTE-M logo cannot be used for LTE MTC features that are precedent to 3GPP Release 13, i.e. the LTE-M logo cannot be used for LTE Cat 0 if PSM and eDRX are supported.
  • A network operator can market their network using LTE-M logo provided that the networks are supporting eMTC from 3GPP Release 13 and onward Releases.

Is there a cost associated with using the logo?

No. A royalty free license is granted to users who complete the user registration process as outlined below to allow the use of the LTE-M logo in relation with their products and services complying with the 3GPP LTE-M specifications.

What does use of the LTE-M logo mean?

The permission to use the LTE-M logo does not involve or imply any certification by the GSMA or the GSMA members that the products or services of manufacturers or service providers actually comply with the 3GPP LTE-M specifications. It is intended simply and only to provide a basis of reference for users, network operators and other manufacturers and service providers. The LTE-M logo may be used to show a general or specific compliance with the related specifications. The LTE-M logo shall not be used for products and services that are not in general or specific compliance with the 3GPP LTE-M specifications.

Application for permission to use the LTE-M logo

Manufacturers and service providers wishing to declare conformity to the LTE-M specifications are given permission to use the LTE-M logo to mark their equipment and documentation. This arrangement is entirely voluntary and is one of self-declaration by the manufacturer, supplier, etc. Additionally any use of the LTE-M logo is subject to:

  1. Acceptance of the LTE-M Logo Brand Guidelines [and Terms of Use]
  2. Registration of the manufacturer, supplier, etc
