Abstract [en]

LAA is a new operation mode of LTE in the unlicensed spectrum, which will be featured in LTE Release 13. Under LAA, licensed carriers will be aggregated with unlicensed carriers in order to opportunistically enhance downlink user throughput while still offering seamless mobility support. In order to coexist with WiFi, some of the new functionalities required of LAA LTE include a mechanism for channel sensing based on listen-before-talk, discontinuous transmission on a carrier with limited maximum transmission duration, and multicarrier transmission across multiple unlicensed channels. This article presents a detailed overview of the design agreements for LAA, the impact of unlicensed spectrum operation on the LTE physical layer architecture, and the scope of additional enhancements beyond LTE Release 13. A range of simulations for indoor and multicarrier scenarios show that fair coexistence between LAA and WiFi can be achieved, and that deployment of LAA can provide a boost in WiFi performance.
