Improving throughput in LTE-A communications at vehicular speeds
The LTE-A standard has emerged as an exciting 4G technology for broadband wireless communications with potentials to offer high throughput and support high bandwidth demanding applications.
LTE-A however, has yet to prove its effectiveness when the end terminals are not fixed and have the capacity to move from one place to another at different speeds. Multipath fading that causes high bit error rate at the receiver end is a key reason for low throughput at high speed.
In this project, we aim to propose new techniques to improve throughput in mobile LTE-A communication. This research will have significant impacts on diverse wireless applications starting from the Internet facilities on moving vehicles to video surveillance applications on public transports.
