Abstract

To satisfy the demand of future mobile networks, they will need to make use of as much spectrum as possible. However, spectrum for wireless communication is scarce, fragmented, and the rules for its use are very heterogeneous. This chapter describes the state of the art in LTE-Advanced aggregation technologies, which are an effective means to exploit a large amount of spectrum. Further, we also show how carrier aggregation can facilitate access other parts of the spectrum, most notably unlicensed ISM bands and light-licensed TVWS bands.
