Last week, I hosted a webinar about LTE-Advanced, which encompasses LTE Release 10 and beyond, and leverages the experience of LTE Release 8 to propose solutions for capacity and cell-edge issues at a reasonable cost. During the webinar, I discussed the motivations behind LTE-Advanced, its network components and how it's different from previous LTE releases. Given the nature of this technology, I also discussed small cells and carrier aggregation, and how each fits into the evolution and future of LTE-Advanced.
While the solutions LTE-Advanced presents for mobile operators are important, they are complex and therefore should be planned carefully and implemented incrementally. As a result, LTE-Advanced won't come to fruition overnight, but rather over the next couple years. And, because the LTE-Advanced platform is interactive, operators can choose to employ only those features that address their specific issues rather than the whole suite.
I invite you to view a replay of the webinar and learn more about LTE-Advanced here. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below! We'll also be at LTE World Summit later this month to discuss many of the same topics; if you'd like to schedule a meeting on-site, please feel free to reach out to [email protected].
