Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-Advanced) is the next step in LTE evolution and allows operators to improve network performance and service capabilities through smooth deployment of new techniques and technologies. LTE-Advanced uses some new features on top of the existing LTE standards and protocols to provide better user experience and higher throughputs. Some of the most significant features introduced in LTE-Advanced are carrier aggregation, enhancements in heterogeneous networks, coordinated multi-point transmission and reception, enhanced Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) usage and deployment of relay nodes in the radio network. This paper presents an overview of the key features and functionalities of the LTE-Advanced radio access network supported by simulation results, and provides discussion on the current challenges, roadmap and the way forward from LTE-Advanced toward future mobile communications systems.
