Abstract

In Long-Term Evolution (LTE), maximum bandwidth allocation of channels in downlink and uplink is 20 MHz. To meet an increasing demand of data rate for users in next generation wireless communication systems such as LTE-Advanced, bandwidth up to 100MHz or above is required. A key technology to achieve higher bandwidths up to 100MHz is carrier aggregation. To provide maximum bandwidth to the users and optimum use of radio resources for the operators , the carriers of same or different bandwidths can be aggregated using carrier aggregation. This paper presents an overview of carrier aggregation algorithms and using Matlab simulations study feasibility of using Discontiguous Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (DOFDM) for carrier aggregation. It is concluded that DOFDM enables carrier aggregation without sacrificing bit error rates for users.
