ABSTRACT
The article discusses the advantages and disadvantages of Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, which is the standard for both the fourth generation (4G) cellular phones and the public-safety broadband wireless networks. It is inferred that LTE supports Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) and Time Division Duplexing (TDD), provides higher throughput, and enables seamless connection to older networks. It also mentions some issues that are needed to be addressed, such as cell sites, antennas, as well as the bandwidth required.
