LTE (Long Term Evolution)
The concept of LTE was proposed by NTT DOCOMO as Super 3G in 2004 and it was standardized in 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project), an international standardization organization. As a specification, LTE aims to provide the high data rate service of approx. maximum 300 Mbps in the downlink with 20 MHz bandwidth. It also realizes significant reduction in connection and transmission delays. Further, to improve spectral efficiency, technologies such as MIMO(Multiple Input, Multiple Output) have been introduced and OFDMA(Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) has been adopted as the downlink access system.
R&D on LTE is explained on PDF.
LTE Technology Trends/Part 2: Research on LTE Technology
In this part 2 of the LTE research that is being conducted to achieve a smooth transition from 3G to 4G, we present technology that is currently being studied for standardization as technical details.
LTE Technology Trends/Part 1: LTE Overview and Standardization Activities
LTE, which is now being studied as a means of making a smooth migration from 3G to 4G technology, will be explained in two parts. In this issue, Part 1 will cover the concept, requirements, and development scenario of LTE as well as current standardization activities.
