How does LTE Advanced offers higher data rate?

Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-Advanced) is a cellular networking standard that offers higher throughput than its predecessor, the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard. Long Term Evolution-Advanced networks can deliver up to 1 GB per second of data, compared to a maximum of 300 MB per second over LTE networks.

What is the difference between LTE and LTE Advanced?

LTE is the cellular technology that 4G networks are based on, and LTE Advanced is an enhancement that improves the original LTE technology. LTE, as per 3GPP Release 8, provides peak data rates of up to 300 Gbps, whereas LTE Advanced, as per 3GPP Release 10, enables peak data rates of up to 1 Gbps.

What is the maximum downlink data transmission rate of LTE Advanced?

1 Gbps
3.2 LTE-Advanced Requirements Peak data rate of 1 Gbps for downlink (DL) and 500 Mbps for uplink (UL).

What are LTE Advanced features?

LTE-Advanced features:

  • Increased peak data rate: Downlink 3 Gbps, Uplink 1.5 Gbps.
  • Higher spectral efficiency: Uplink 16bps/Hz, Downlink 30 bps/Hz.
  • Increased number of simultaneously active subscribers.
  • Improved performance at cell edges, e.g. for Downlink 2×2 MIMO by at least 2.40 bps/Hz/cell.

What are the QoS parameters in LTE?

In an LTE network, QoS parameters are defined at service level and at bearer level. SDF QoS parameters are service-level QoS parameters while EPS bearer QoS parameters are bearer-level QoS parameters. Service level and bearer level are also called as SDF level and SDF aggregate level.

What is the speed of LTE Advanced?

While LTE’s peak downlink speed is theoretically 300 Mbps, LTE Advanced can ostensibly reach 1 Gbps but realistically would get only 100 Mbps in everyday use.

What is data rate in LTE?

In an LTE-Advanced design, support of multiple antenna systems is necessary to achieve data rates of 1 Gbps in downlink and 500 Mbps in uplink within a bandwidth of 20 MHz. The key requirement for an LTE mobile station is to use two antennas for uplink and two antennas for downlink.

What are benefits to LTE-Advanced?

LTE Advanced offers better Quality-of-Service (QoS) That means businesses that rely on wireless networks will be able to use and create higher-bandwidth applications, enjoy better access to cloud storage and software, and work faster.

What is main improvement LTE Advanced?

LTE Advanced adds additional capabilities to the basic LTE format to enable it to provide additional facilities, higher data rate, and better performance.

What are 3GPP technologies?

The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is an umbrella term for a number of standards organizations which develop protocols for mobile telecommunications. Its best known work is the development and maintenance of: GSM and related 2G and 2.5G standards, including GPRS and EDGE.
