LAA

(Licensed Assisted Access) A 3GPP standard for cellular transmission in the 5 GHz unlicensed frequency band. To co-exist fairly with Wi-Fi, which operates in the same spectrum, LAA uses the "listen before talk" (LBT) method before transmitting. Wi-Fi also uses the LBT scheme with its collision avoidance technology (see CSMA/CA). Contrast with LTE-U. See ISM band.

But though you are likely, with the blessing, to recover, there is laa for him yet; and if you will employ lawyer Small, I darest be sworn he'll make the fellow fly the country for him; though perhaps he'll have fled the country before; for it is here to-day and gone to-morrow with such chaps.
It was neither an assault by the Picards nor the Burgundians, nor a hunt led along in procession, nor a revolt of scholars in the town of Laas, nor an entry of "our much dread lord, monsieur the king," nor even a pretty hanging of male and female thieves by the courts of Paris.

And those that dwelt in Lacedaemon, lying low among the hills, Pharis, Sparta, with Messe the haunt of doves; Bryseae, Augeae, Amyclae, and Helos upon the sea; Laas, moreover, and Oetylus; these were led by Menelaus of the loud battle-cry, brother to Agamemnon, and of them there were sixty ships, drawn up apart from the others.
The unique 12-layered LAA configuration used in the trial will provide 2 to 3 times faster than prevailing peak LTE speeds, resulting in enhanced user experience, especially in high traffic indoor environments such as shopping malls.
The LAA is the site where most clots form in patients who have irregular heart beats.
LAA chairman John Brereton said another key attraction was the hammer price, which was not compromised by deductions for breed, weight "or any other reasons".
Future enhancement of LAA includes 5CC carrier aggregation support in 2018, and allows the download speeds to exceed 1Gbps.
More recently, Italian operator TIM is knocking on the gigabit door by achieving speeds of nearly 1Gbps on its live advanced 4G network in Milan using Ericsson's LAA technology.
The trial of LAA is a significant step in its journey towards 5G," he added.
LTE-U and LAA devices and equipment intelligently tap into and share underutilized unlicensed spectrum without affecting other users on the same band, including those using conventional Wi-Fi.
