LTE-U, or as more recently rechristened LTE-Licensed Assisted Access, has attracted a lot of attention, both positive and negative, from network operators, traditional wi-fi vendors and enterprises.  But what is it all about?  And how will it help alleviate the mobile data rate crunch?  We will have two experts from Intel and Qualcomm share the inside picture on how it’s shaping up.
LTE System Deployment and Performance in Unlicensed Bands
The ever increasing demand for mobile data is fueling a new wave of innovations to increase the capacity of cellular networks. As opportunities for conventional licensed spectrum below 6 GHz are becoming scarce, other spectrum frequency bands, such as unlicensed bands, have gained considerable attention recently. In order to enable the best possible system operation in unlicensed bands, design issues with respect to co-existence among multiple LTE operators sharing the unlicensed band as well as co-existence with other wireless systems, such as IEEE 802.11, need to be addressed. In this presentation, we evaluate the overall system level performance in unlicensed bands by proposing appropriate deployment scenarios. Different LTE and WiFi system configurations are described and evaluated in LTE/WiFi coexistence scenarios, including multiple LTE operator coexistence, demonstrating important system-level performance aspects in unlicensed bands.
Extending the Benefits of LTE Advanced to Unlicensed Spectrum
Bringing LTE Advanced to unlicensed spectrum allows operators to better utilize the unlicensed 5 GHz band through a unified LTE network and offer higher network performance, as well as an enhanced user experience.  In this presentation, we will introduce LTE-U use cases, regulatory requirements and standardization status.  We will also present LTE-U performance and benefits, and how it would coexist with WiFi in the unlicensed band.
