After much anticipation, the fourth generation (4G) of cellular wireless is nearly upon us. The ITU Radiocommunication sector (ITU-R) have been working on their IMT-Advanced 4G program for some time and are now soliciting candidate technologies from the industry later this year. 3GPP will be submitting LTE-Advanced, an enhancement to basic Release 8 LTE.

This webcast will explain the scope and timing of the ITU 4G program and describe in some detail the major features of LTE-Advanced which will be standardized in Release 10 of the 3GPP specifications.

Duration: One hour

Who should view this webcast:
LTE-Advanced marks the emergence of wireless into the fourth generation. An overall understanding of the context, content and value of this technology evolution is essential for all levels of management and engineering in the wireless industry.
