LTE vs LTE Advanced: What you need to know about carrier aggregation
The latest enhancement to LTE, known as LTE-Advanced or LTE-A, is an extensive set of new features that improve performance and increase reliability. Of these many features, carrier aggregation is perhaps the most important, because it simplifies traffic management while improving practical data rates and enhancing network capacity.
Carrier aggregation simplifies the management of multi-band traffic and, at the same time, yields higher bandwidth and greater capacity. With carrier aggregation, it's easier to work with more than one band, and load balancing requires only a few milliseconds, as part of the packet scheduler.
