LTE CA technology development and deployment worldwide

4G Americas

Carrier aggregation (CA) is a key feature of LTE-Advanced that enables operators to create larger “virtual” carrier bandwidths for LTE services by combining separate spectrum allocations.

This white paper presents a summary of CA technology ranging from the basic concepts to future evolutions. It also provides an overview of supported CA configurations and combinations specified in 3GPP, CA control mechanisms, common CA deployment scenarios, specific use cases, device implementations and performance impacts.

The paper also summarizes future enhancements that will continue to drive the evolution of CA technology and deployment as a mainstream technology.
