LTE-Advanced, or LTE Release 10 and beyond as known within the 3GPP community, represents an evolution of LTE and is motivated by different requirements from both operators and end-users. A major requirement of LTE-A consists in achieving peak data rates equal to 1Gbps and 500 Mbps on downlink and uplink, respectively and that is via an extensive usage of advanced MIMO technologies and transmission bandwidth wider than 70 MHz. The peak spectrum efficiency is also required to be doubled in comparison with Rel. 8 LTE. Spectrum flexibility, backward compatibility, reduction of control plane delay, relaying, and vast deployment of indoor eNB and Home NB are all important requirements that feature LTE-A.
This panel hosts panelists from two major vendors, namely NEC and Huawei, one panelist from Telstra, the largest mobile operator in Australia, and a panelist from CSIRO, an internationally-notable research institute in Australia. The panelists will be discussing the need for LTE-A, the potential that it offers to the different stakeholders and the end-users, and highlight the hurdles that are still to be overcome to make of the LTE-A vision a reality.
