Abstract

This paper gives an overview of the Long Term Evolution (LTE) of the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS), which is being developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). LTE constitutes the latest step towards the 4th generation (4G) of radio technologies designed to increase the capacity and speed of mobile communications. Particular attention is given to the requirements and targets of LTE, its use of multiple antenna techniques, and to the Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMA) modulation scheme used in the LTE uplink. Furthermore new future research areas are proposed here.
