Mobile broadband is quickly becoming a reality, with demand exceeding the capacity of High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) and other technologies. Most major and minor mobile wireless carriers have turned to Long Term Evolution (LTE) as the answer to these demands. With its clever use of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), LTE offers flexible occupied bandwidth, very high data rates, low latency, and the ability to operate in both paired and unpaired frequency sets. Dr. Bob Morrow (PhD Purdue, 1988) will present an overview of the technical operation of LTE so you can see for yourselves what the "hype" is all about.
