Executive Summary

As the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard comes to an end, 3rd Generation Partnership Project is discussing further evolution of the LTE to meet the international mobile telecommunications advanced requirements, which is referred to as LTE-Advanced (LTE release 10 and beyond). This paper first presents the network infrastructure of the LTE-Advanced, and then provides an in-depth overview of enabling technologies from the physical layer aspects, including carrier aggregation, advanced Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) techniques, wireless relays, enhanced Inter-Cell Interference Coordination (eICIC), and Coordinated MultiPoint (CoMP) transmission/reception.
