LTE (Long Term Evolution) for Wireless Networks
Paper instructions:
Create a PowerPoint presentation with a minimum of 15 slides using APA style formatting. Each slide should contain five to six bullets with six to eight words per bullet.

The structure of the powerpoint should follow this outline:
I. Attention Material

A.What is the LTE network?
1. Fundamental definition of LTE
2. What does LTE provide?
B. The key benefits of transitioning from 3G to LTE
1. An important feature of LTE is the amount of flexibility
2. A simplified, flat architecture from an all IP, packet-based network

II. Orienting Material

A. The first commercial LTE networks were launched by TeliaSonera in Norway and Sweden in December 2009; as of the end of October 2012, there were 117 commercial LTE networks in various stages of commercial service.
B. In the same way that 3G coexists with second generation (2G) systems in integrated networks, LTE systems will coexist with 3G systems as well as 2G systems.
C. The LTE specification provides downlink peak rates of 300 Mbit/s, uplink peak rates of 75 Mbit/s and QoS provisions permitting a transfer latency of less than 5 ms in the radio access network.

(Transition: Let’s examine the introduction of LTE.}
I. The goal of LTE was to increase the capacity and speed of wireless data networks using new DSP (digital signal processing) techniques and modulations that were developed around the turn of the millennium.

(Transition: While LTE is technologically superior to 3G, it is also cost effective for service providers.)
II. Higher-bandwidth and lower-latency will significantly improve the user experience for bandwidth-hungry content and applications.
A. Latency
B. Improved spectrum efficiency
C. Improved broadcasting.
D. IP-optimized

(Transition: The future of LTE.)

III. Migrating to LTE does require significant investment from mobile operators, and not just in upgrading base stations.
A. This mobile data traffic is growing exponentially, while the service revenues paid by end users are either flat or falling due to intense competition.
B. Commercial LTE launched initially appeared on a small scale in Japan, the U.S. and Sweden in 2010, with larger players in Western Europe following in 2011 to 2012. In 2015 the majority of Europe, Asia, and the Americas will be

(Transition: Summarize the technology of LTE.)
I. Summary

A. LTE is a more efficient technology than its predecessors.
B. LTE is a cost effective solution that will reduce overhead cost.
C. LTE’s QoS is evident to the user.
