Abstract: Long Term Evolution (LTE) has been designed to support only packet-switched services. It aims to provide seamless Internet Protocol (IP) connectivity between User Equipment (UE) and the packet data network (PDN), without any disruption to the end user’s applications during mobility. The term LTE “Long Term Evolution” encompasses the evolution of UMTS which is famous for high data rate because the use of OFDMA. Many of us might have heard about LTE’s peak throughput i.e. 300Mbps, but how many of us know how we calculate that? This paper provides the information, how this number is calculated? And assumptions behind? In this paper, authors have explained the calculations of theoretical throughput for both the LTE FDD and TDD systems.
Keywords: LTE, Throughput, Frequency Division Duplexing, Time Division Duplexing.

Scope of the Article: Expert Systems
