Long Term Evolution Introduction (4G)
What is LTE ?4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) is a fourth generation standard for broadband mobile technology. This standard is developed to meet long term future requirements of higher data rates, lower latency, better cell coverage and seamless handover.
The lte technology is developed to
co-with existing 3G networks and allow Network providers to grow services, applications, quality etc.
LTE is purely a packet based switching based on
OFDM(Orthogonal frequency division Multiplexing) standard.
Following are some key driving forces behind LTE.
1. Higher data rates or throughput -
