What is Carrier Aggregation and How to Test?

In order to meet the uplink and
downlink throughput targets for LTE-Advanced mandated by 3GPP, more than
20 MHz of bandwidth is required in each direction. However, finding
sufficient contiguous spectrum is not an option for most operators
deploying LTE. Carrier Aggregation is the answer to this problem, but
supporting these features introduces new challenges.
