Long Term Evolution of 3GPP

  • Mustafa Ergen
Chapter

Abstract

The third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) addresses next generation IP-based OFDMA technology with Long-Term Evolution (LTE) project in order to accommodate increasing mobile data usage and new multimedia applications. This new OFDMA-based air interface is utilized under Evolved UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN) and supported with a new flatter-IP core. This entire architecture is termed as 3GPP EPS (Evolved Packet System); previously network architecture was called System Architecture Evolution (SAE). Note that LTE air interface is a successor of GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSxPA network technologies but has the ability to support bandwidths wider than 5 MHz, and EPS network architecture considers reduction of network level elements compared with HSPA (High Speed Packet Access).
