The course presents the long term capabilities for the radio technology to evolve beyond LTE and LTE Advanced. The current mobile broadband usage, applications and challenges are discussed, experiences from commercial LTE networks are shared and LTE Advanced solutions are short presented. The story is not over with LTE Advanced – the radio technology can improve a lot by 2020 in terms of end user experience, capacity and network operability. The course considers these radio capabilities and shows how the underlying digital and RF technology evolution helps also to push radio technology further.
