Abstract: Spectral efficiency and delay are important design metrics that should be taken into consideration while designing a LTE/LTE-A network. Various factors effect these metrics in various ways. In this paper we will be analyzing spectral efficiency vs number of users and delay vs number of users in a 4G LTE network. Additionally, we will be analyzing effect of different scheduling types on delay and throughput of the network. The scheduling types we compare are maximum throughput, proportional fair and round robin. We will conclude on a scheduling type that gives us the least delay and maximum throughput. In view of the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, this paper considers multiple input multiple output (MIMO) capacity enhancement.
