Testing LTE-U Devices

Amit Khanna — Rohde & Schwarz

LTE-U, or LTE in the unlicensed 5GHz band, is a hot new technology being proposed to address the current capacity crunch for mobile operators. Through carrier aggregation, LTE in the unlicensed spectrum is combined with LTE in the licensed band to provide additional bandwidth and a fatter data pipe. By combining licensed bandwidth with unlicensed 5GHz spectrum, LTE-U will improve overall performance for operators and provide a framework for all spectrum types.
