What is LTE?
- Completed by 3GPP in February 2008, the LTE standards are designed to enable the rollout of high capacity mobile networks capable of delivering very high speed and low latency
- Designed to be backwards-compatible with GSM and HSPA, LTE incorporates Multiple In Multiple Out (MIMO) in combination with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) in the downlink and Single Carrier FDMA in the uplink to provide high levels of spectral efficiency and high data rates
- 3GPP has ensured compatibility with these existing widely-used technologies, enabling a smooth handover of voice calls and data sessions between 3GPP networks and building on the international roaming capabilities of GSM and HSPA today
Benefits of LTE
- LTE efficiently delivers best user experience of broadband and smart device services due to increased data rates, reduced latency and scalable flat all-IP network architecture
- LTE offers a number of clearly identifiable benefits in comparison to other mobile technologies and these are:
- Significantly increased peak data rates
- Reduced latency
- Scalable bandwidth
- Compatibility with earlier releases
- Reduced CAPEX/OPEX
- Improved spectrum efficiency
- LTE will gain traction and the coming years will see greater deployment of LTE. These deployments will be in both TDD and FDD versions. We expect that the growth in LTE will outpace the growth in Wimax
