LTE Carrier Aggregation and MIMO

Focusing on the enhancements brought about by the introduction of LTE Advanced, this course explains the modifications and benefits to the air interface in terms of supporting carrier aggregation and MIMO. In so doing, the key carrier aggregation procedures are explored, including the impact this has had on mobility within the network. MIMO and it’s impact and usage within LTE is also a key topic which is explored.
