Understanding the Different Aspects of LTE and Its Impact in Various Areas

Understanding the Different Aspects of LTE and Its Impact in Various Areas

Many operators are gearing up to embrace the standardization roadmap defined by 3GPP for the so-called 4G mobile technology to build on the technical foundations of the 3GPP family of cellular systems viz. GSM, GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA and HSPA as well as non-3GPP technologies viz. 1xRTT, EV-DO, 3xRTT. It is imperative that these operators expect the legacy systems, services and applications deployed already to evolve to support the LTE/SAE seamlessly along with the current breed of technologies. Also, as operators start deploying LTE/SAE in a phased manner over several years with different evolution paths, the evolved systems, services and applications will have to also support requirements to facilitate inter-system or intra-system roaming and interworking e.g. GSM->LTE, WCDMA->LTE, EV-DO->LTE, TD-SCDMA->LTE as well as to support the different variants of the technology implementations in the roaming and interworking environment.
