Overview of the 3GPP Long Term Evolution Physical Layer - Freescale - July 2007
Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the next step forward in cellular 3G services. Expected in the 2008 time frame, LTE is a 3GPP standard that provides for an uplink speed of up to 50 megabits per second (Mbps) and a downlink speed of up to 100 Mbps. LTE will bring many technical benefits to cellular networks. Bandwidth will be scalable from 1.25 MHz to 20
MHz. This will suit the needs of different network operators that have different bandwidth allocations, and also allow operators to provide different services based on spectrum. LTE is also expected to improve spectral efficiency in 3G networks, allowing carriers to provide more data and voice services over a given bandwidth.
This technical white paper provides an overview of the LTE physical layer (PHY), including technologies that are new to cellular such as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) data transmission.
Japanese operator eAccess isn't deploying any old LTE network. It's going for broke, pushing the upper limits of the technology to launch a network that could theoretically support downlink speeds of 300 Mbps,
