LTE-Advanced CA enables high-speed data rates that meet the goals mandated by IMT-Advanced
(as specified by the International Telecommunication Union) while maintaining backward compatibility with 3GPP Release 8 and 9.
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
Network generation standards are set by the International Telecommunications Union, having finalized the standards for 4G technology under the IMT-Advanced
designation in 2012.
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.
Coming prior to ITU's World Radiocommunication Conference in 2012, and the upcoming ITU-R detailed specifications on IMT-Advanced
4G technologies, expected in early 2012, this workshop also provides an ideal opportunity for Chinese communication industry stakeholders and global partners to discuss TD-LTE as a candidate technology of IMT-advanced
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.
Conducted between 2004 and 2007, the project's main objective was to develop a radio interface proposal that fulfils the requirements of Systems Beyond 3G and IMT-Advanced
in preparation for the international standardization process.
is a follow-on effort of the Third Generation Wireless (3G) project, which led to spectrum auctions and systems relocation.
16m[TM]-2011 and designated by the ITU as IMT-Advanced
LTE Advanced is a mobile communication standard, formally submitted as a candidate 4G system to ITU-T in late 2009, was approved into ITU, International Telecommunications Union, IMT-Advanced
and was finalized by 3GPP in March 2011.
