Abstract
Abstract: Due to the scarcity of licensed spectrum, Long-Term Evolution (LTE) operation in unlicensed spectrum is a promising solution to provide high data rate and to reduce the load on licensed spectrum. In Release 13, 3GPP introduced LTE in Unlicensed (LTE-U) as Licensed Assisted Access (LAA). In LTE-U, Carrier Aggregation (CA) feature aggregates licensed and unlicensed spectrum to get higher bandwidth. Use of unlicensed spectrum by Wi-Fi and LTE-U networks results in more interference because of lack of coordination ...
