MuLTEFire is an approach developed by Qualcomm using Long Term Evolution(LTE), which as a mobile network only operates in frequency bands requiring a license, can also be operated in the license-free frequency bands of WLANs.
Since the LTE protocol is extremely fast, MulteFire can be used to implement fast, reliable free connections. In addition, MulteFire hotspots can supply any end devices.
MulteFire is comparable to license-free Long Term Evolution, LTE Unlicensed( LTE-U) and LTE Licensed Assisted Access( LAA), with the difference that MulteFire uses only the license-free frequency bands at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, and not alternatively the licensed ones. It is based on the Third Generation Partnership Project( 3GPP), has higher efficiency, and can serve a wide variety of terminals via MulteFire hotspots. The development of MulteFire is driven by the MulteFire Alliance, which includes Qualcomm, Nokia, Ericsson, Intel and others.
