Long term evolution (LTE)

Nothing to do with what we, humans, will become in future centuries as that is still a mystery unfolding.   However, there are similarities as LTE is the term given to the next generation technology for mobile communications.  LTE  has new features many of which do not exist yet but may do in the future. 


4G (fourth generation) is the most recent new telecoms standard in the UK, currently only provided by EE (Everything Everywhere).   4G has some of the new features of LTE. An example is the ability to handle greater data throughput providing the cells are available and not congested.  This is a good step forward but remember – the M25 is a pretty good road – providing not too many us it at the same time!  It is said that LTE can handle downloads at 300 Megabits per second – only time will tell how data download rates will work out in practice.


We have lots of books to borrow in the IET library on this exciting new development, such as:


Cox’s An introduction to LTE: LTE, LTE-advanced, SAE and 4G mobile communications. (2012)


Agtilent’s LTE and the evolution to 4G wireless: design and measurement challenges. (2012)


Holma’s LTE-Advanced 3GPP solution for IMT-Advanced. (2012)


And from the IET’s virtual library, highly acclaimed EbscoHost databases, check out these articles:


‘LTE: What happened and what's next. (cover story)’


‘Downlink Resource Allocation in Long Term Evolution (LTE)’


‘Performance Comparison of LTE Transmission Modes in High Speed Channels using Soft Sphere Decoder’


Or try Borko Furht and Syed A. Ahson’s electronic book in the Engineering and IT Reference Library : Long Term Evolution: 3GPP LTE Radio and Cellular Technology
