LTE, LTE-A and LTE-A Pro Migration to 5G Training Education: While 2020 is the rollout target date for 5G, industry specialists believe the 5G transition will not be as clear cut as previous mobile networking transitions.

In other words, despite idealized scenarios, deployment is likely to be evolutionary, as opposed to revolutionary, especially considering how mobile carriers invested a lot of capitol and aggressively developed pre-5G technologies to compensate for the explosion of user data consumption.

One pre-5G technology in particular that stands out is Long Term Evolution (LTE). 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. A further goal was the redesign and simplification of the network architecture to an IP-based system with significantly reduced transfer latency compared to the 3G architecture. The LTE wireless interface was incompatible with 2G and 3G networks, so it was operated on a separate radio spectrum.

Recently, LTE has been commonly marketed as LTE & Advance, but it does not meet the technical criteria of a 4G wireless service, as specified in the 3GPP Release 8 and 9 document series for LTE Advanced. LTE is also commonly known as 3.95G.

The requirements were originally set forth by the ITU-R organization in the IMT Advanced specification. However, due to marketing pressures and the significant advancements that WiMAX, Evolved High Speed Packet Access and LTE bring to the original 3G technologies, ITU later decided that LTE together with the aforementioned technologies can be called 4G technologies.

The LTE Advanced standard formally satisfies the ITU-R requirements to be considered IMT-Advanced. To differentiate LTE Advanced and WiMAX-Advanced from current 4G technologies, ITU has defined them as True 4G.

From an implementation perspective, the early 5G phase will likely coexist with LTE and 4G networks, where 4G networks remain the foundation, especially for mobility.

It’s expected that new 5G coverage will be at first limited to outdoor pedestrian centric areas where frequencies can easily reach users.
