Lakhani: IMT-2020 is an ITU term for the next step after IMT-2000 and IMT-Advanced
which covered 3G and 4G respectively.
Mobile subscribers will enjoy the benefits of increased mobile broadband Internet speeds in 2016 when the operators begin to provide services based on IMT-Advanced
1) And to facilitate worldwide compatibility, LTE-A meets the requirements of the International Telecommunications Union's IMT-Advanced
(where IMT stands for International Mobile Telecommunications) standard.
The 1st release of the 3GPP long term evolution (LTE) standard does not totally complete the ITU 4G demands known IMT-advanced
The focus here is the latest version of the network protocol, LTE release 11, also called LTE-Advanced, which is the major technology approved by the ITU as fulfilling the IMT-Advanced
Point-point fixed wireless and broadcasting services coexistence with IMT-Advanced
Third, LTE-Advanced shall meet or exceed the IMT-Advanced
requirements within the ITU-R time plan.
The first sets the stage for the next generation of mobile devices, establishing standards for IMT-Advanced
technology, which uses the radio-frequency spectrum more efficiently to deliver data much faster than current 3G and 4G standards.
system was previously entitled as "systems beyond IMT-2000".
The International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations agency, has adopted LTE-Advanced and WiMax-derived WirelessMAN-Advanced standards for its IMT-Advanced
program to define future mobile networks.
In October 2010, LTE-Advanced was accepted by the International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) as a technology compliant with the requirements of IMT-Advanced
3GPP concept will address the IMT-Advanced
through a version of LTE called LTE-Advanced, a project which has been researched since 2009 and is expected to end in 2011.
