Edge-prioritized channel- and traffic-aware uplink Carrier Aggregation in LTE-advanced systems

Abstract

LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) systems support wider transmission bandwidths and hence, higher data rates for bulk traffic, as a result of Carrier Aggregation (CA). However, existing literature lacks efforts on channel-aware CA, especially in the uplink. The cell-edge users particularly suffer from exhaustion of resources, higher fading losses, lower SINR values… (More)
