Simple LTE summary: Part of the LTE standard is an IP based network architecture designed to replace the GPRS core network and ensure support for, and mobility between, some legacy or non-3GPP systems, such as WiMAX. The LTE specification provides downlink peak rates of at least 100 Mbps, an uplink of at least 50 Mbps and latency times less than 10ms. LTE supports scalable frequency bandwidths from 1.25 MHz to 20 MHz : 1.25, 2.5, 5, 10, 15, and 20MHz; and supports both (FDD) and (TDD). First-release LTE does not fully comply with the 4G requirements. LTE Advanced is certified 4G and is backwards compatible with LTE and uses the same frequency bands, while LTE is not backwards compatible with 3G systems. MetroPCS , Verizon Wireless and AT&T Mobility in the United States and several worldwide carriers announced plans, beginning in 2009, to convert their networks to LTE.

OFDMA in the downlink and SC-FDMA in the uplink Uplink modulation schemes: QPSK, 16QAM, 64QAM Broadcast channel only uses QPSK Up to 200 users in every 5 MHz (i.e., can support 200 data users) Quote: “The standard includes: Peak download rates of 326.4 Mbit/s for 4x4 antennae, and 172.8 Mbit/s for 2x2 antennae (utilizing 20 MHz of spectrum). [10] Note : If we knew what G.I. used, then could figure if that’s 4X4;4 or not. Peak upload rates of 86.4 Mbit/s for every 20 MHz of spectrum using a single antenna. [10] Five different terminal classes have been defined from a voice centric class up to a high end terminal that supports the peak data rates. All terminals will be able to process 20 MHz bandwidth. At least 200 active users in every 5 MHz cell. (Specifically, 200 active data clients) Sub-5 ms latency for small IP packets Increased spectrum flexibility, with supported spectrum slices as small as 1.4 MHz and as

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
