LTE-Advanced Pro: general understanding
An LTE network is considered as 4.5G (LTE-Advanced Pro) when one of the following features is deployed:
•  Ultra-low latency
•  Enhancements for Machine-Type Communication, including a new low complexity UE (NB-IoT or eMTC)
AND at least one of the following:
4 or more component carriers (CC) are combined downlink using carrier aggregation (up to 32 CC is possible)
Total aggregated bandwidth exceeds 60 MHz
2 or more component carriers (CC) are combined uplink using carrier aggregation
256QAM modulation on the downlink
64QAM modulation on the uplink
A primary licensed cell operating in licensed spectrum is aggregated with a secondary cell operating in unlicensed spectrum to
opportunistically boost data rate (License-Assisted Access – LAA – operation)
Higher order MIMO systems FDD 4T4R / TDD 8T8R or more
Enhancements to indoor positioning
Advanced antenna features (e.g. elevation beamforming)
Superposition coding for enhancement for downlink multiuser transmission
V2X communications
Proximity Services ProSe
Mission Critical PTT
