Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the 4th generation cellular system. The followings are the main objectives of LTE: increased downlink speed of 100 Mbps and uplink speed of almost 50 Mbps, the channel will have a scalable bandwidth from 1.3 MHz to 20 MHz, supporting both Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and Time Division Duplex (TDD), all IP network (flat network architecture) and a standard based interface that can support multitude of users types. This paper investigates three different empirical propagation models for the next 4th generation known Long Term Evolution (LTE) in the (2-3) GHz band in urban and suburban areas.
