Despite their tremendous success over the years, the wireless technologies are still confronted with some of the critical challenges such as, fading, multipath and interference and spectrum limitations. To fulfill this, wireless communication industry defined a new air interface for mobile communications i.e., Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the evolution of the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS). It describes standardization work by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), enhances the overall system performance by increasing the capacity of the system along with improving spectral efficiencies while reducing latencies.
