5. Ease of handover - Seamless mobility across existing 3G networks to enable world mobility.
6. Better multi path and interference resistance - Use of OFDM and MIMO makers this technology more robust toward multi-path or interference in general.
7. Simultaneous user support - Resources can be allocated both in time and frequency. This enables multiple users in a single time slot. 3G only allows 1 user per timeslot.
8. Better encryption and security - Use of 128 bit encryption keys and AES algorithms.
6. Low cost - lower CAPEX and OPEX cost for network providers with best multimedia experience in return.
2. Better cell coverage - Improved cellular coverage and better indoor penetration. Target 5 km for with good performance and 30 km with acceptable performance.
3. Low Latency - Latency in 3G networks are around 50-100 ms. The proposal for 4G networks is to reduce the delays by 1/5th.
4. Higher capacity - High capacity directly relates to better efficiency. The target is to achieve transfer of 15 bits/Hz. 4G networks are expected to be around 3-4 times more efficient
