Mobile communication network experiences dramatic advances and changes over the last two decades. With the growing demand, the development of the design and optimization of radio access technologies and a further evolution of the existing system, the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) had laid down the foundation of the future Long Term Evolution (LTE) advanced standards as the 3GPP candidates for 4G. This paper provides a high-level technical overview of LTE Release-10, also known as LTE-Advanced. This paper covers a quick overview of LTE-Advanced technology and its predecessor technologies.
